While this is correct, for now, I wouldn't count on it being the case in two or three months.

So, perhaps 2 different systems run, but it seems that as an individual you will use one system or the other but not both.
From everything I've read this appears to be correct! Both systems will be intact for the foreseeable future, but there is a good chance that The traditional FP system will be phased out over time. Once the FP+ system is introduced to everyone it everyone it will be a one or the other process. You won't be able to mix and match,

(Your total lockout could be less for specific rides or on less busy days depending on the lockouts for the rides you chose; also it could be set up so you could pull regular FP after your last FP+ matures if that comes sooner.)
At this point ! While FP+ is still in the testing period, those lucky enough to be selected for it have been able to use both systems. Once they activate FP+ for all ( in the next few months?) all indications show it will be one or the other. Our trip is in mid June, so I'm hopping the system will be in use long enough where enough feedback will be available for us to know what system will be better for us.
