Yep...especially since this is basically the same test they have been running for about a year now, but previously had a lot more users.

Question

So with these new bracelets, if they are all out when we go, does that mean I get to choose my favorite color for me and my kids. Just a question!

I'm honestly not sure how this will all work, however it is my understanding this will be available to all guests... there are people much smarter than me on this board, I'm sure if you stick around you will get much better answers

So at this point it really seems like it's still in the testing phase - since those testing it can use FP as well as FP+ - so we really don't have any information that we didn't already have from previous tests? That's what it seems like so far, anyway.

I've had absolutely ZERO issues with the MyDisneyExperience App... although it certainly isn't anything worthy prior to arrival. I downloaded the app, created a Disney account (booked my Disney vacation online, as a guest, and created a new email for this process), had no problems linking my reservation, and creating My Profile and Guest's.

When on the actual site, I assigned characters and created my daily itinerary. The graphics are pretty impressive (which I'm sure plays a part in the occasional lag) and the dinning reservations I had made on my cell (under the same email address) were automatically linked, almost immediately.

If i was having this experience with the app and the website, I'm pretty sure i would feel a little different. BUT the fact that i cant see my reservations and some of my dining reservations are missing i don't have much faith in the FP+ working as it should. Those two things should be an important thing for Disney to have working correctly. Don't they want me to be able to pay for my vacation online instead of having to call? And be able to view my Dining plans and not have to call AGAIN to make sure they actually went through and exist? (i have made it to the end and when i called to make sure they vanished into thin air.) IF Disney can ever get there act together with the technology problems then i would be slightly more on board with this whole idea.

i must say i really hate this scheduling thing, as it is now with ADRs its nearly impossible to do many things without booking 6 months in advance and that kills us locals who dont plan trips like that, if FP+ turns into me having book 2 months in advance to ride Toy Story Mania with a fast pass I really probably will be going to the parks much less.

I really hope this is the case because being limited to 3 per day would stink but if I could also go to the park and obtain additional fastpasses then I would love that!!

Thankfully the app works just fine for me. It shows my split DVC stay, all my dining reservations, has let me assign characters to my family & I have set up some of my itinerary. Ok, originally I wasn't for it, but bring it on - I'm ready!

Josh, you make a good point. Locals seem to have been overlooked in this newest technology.

I hope the speculation about same-day FP being available turns out to be true for all the locals.
