Yes but they hop with the knowledge that except in in a few cases(TSM, Soarin', etc,) they will be able to get fastpasses. Say I am at MK and have used my 3 FP+'s and want to leave because wait times are getting high and I can't get anymore FP's. I look at my wait times app and see that wait times at other parks have gotten pretty high, I'm not going to hop if I can't get FP's. I just go and do something else in Orlando, there is certainly no lack of options. Due to the FP+ limit Disney has now lost a chance at any dollar I spend the rest of the day. I would also be less likely to buy hoppers, again loss of income.

That's my hope. If the 3 FP+ limit is for ADVANCE scheduling only then this is a definite improvement. It allows for uber-planners to have more control and still lets the non-planners take things as they come. It also leaves me with potential incentive to hop to another park. Say I am at AK and have used my 3 FP+'s. I see on my wait time app lines are long at Epcot, but wait! I see I can get a FP for TT @x:xx pm. Great! That's worth a trip over instead of looking for something to do without a long line.

If the system goes forward as proposed in the discussions here I don't think I would take advantage of it. I just don't think the option of scheduling a parade view or TSM FP is worth it to limit my options the entire trip. Once this is THE FP system I really think I would look at it as a negative when planning future trips. I just can't believe that Disney thinks we would see advance planning as a fair exchange for such a draconian limitation of FP's. I might be more inclined to look favorably if you could choose FP+ day to day. Say use it for 1 MK day for a parade spot, or 1 DHS day for TSM, but no way the entire trip. It's just not worth it.
