Just back. Quick tip, for those going soon.
We had an amazing trip with great weather! The crowds were much much higher than the same week in previous years, but still manageable.
However, I wanted to warn anyone going between now and the new FP+ to be careful when riding anything standby. Especially in the magic kingdom. As others had mentioned, they seem to have upped the number of FP for every attraction, and let in roughly 1 party of standbyers to 10-30 FPers. We had wait times jump several times even on low crowd days. The worst was Friday morning when the 20 minute wait posted for jungle cruise ended up being about 90 minutes. The same thing happened during the EMH at space mountain last Sunday. We went in with a 15 minute posted wait and got on the ride over an hour later. Both the LInes app and the My Disney apps were consistently way off on wait times.
I've never experienced jumps like that before, or noticed them taking so low a ratio of standby riders to FP users. I'm hoping they get this under control with the new system, because we missed using a few fast passes due to the wait times being so very very far off!
