mom2rtk: Thanks for your imput on BOG. I have some older teens, and have not given enough time regarding the new princess area. I did not need to get into BOG so did not know its a hot commdity like Princesses at the castel in MK. Your comments help everyone.

Barry, my sister was traveling at the same time as yoiu,she said she got snow in paris, and the worst rain in spain. I should have told you that the 'griswalds' were going to europe. Hope that you had a good time. (the very best pizza we had was in naples italy, and they served it by the metre, and we had a blast there. omg the pizza was good.)

I really think that some of the changes coming are going to appeal to the mass population. Thats not on a whole 'us' but there is some potential there. Cant wait to see it.

Alison

So was it almost as good as being in Epcot?
. The real France and Italy are a lot bigger! I do think that Epcot has captured the feel of Paris. I did not see much of the Epcot Italian Pavillion in San Remo. I guess I will have to go to Venice for that (except the aforementioned pizza).

I've been really curious as to how this is going to work. Does anyone have any knowledge about when this technology is to be implemented in its entirety throughout the parks. I haven't found much info on it. Although we know now what our friends' groomsman was saying he couldn't talk about at their wedding a couple of years ago... It's definitely going to change a lot, and while I like everything about it so far (EXCEPT) the FP+ system, I guess my overall opinion is just going to have to wait. Hmm, we'll see!

We actually have a pretty good idea on how all the MYMagic+ stuff is going to work. The hardware is in place. Interactive queues, RFID entrances to parks and rooms, the FP+ machines are in place. We can see the app, and have seen quite a few glimpses of where that s going. All the magic bands are sitting in boxes waiting to be distributed. We know what the kiosks look like in the park.

It looks like the software and network side is not cooperating right now.

We have no idea when it will go into place, but based on press releases and the DVC magazine premature story, Disney was counting on this being in place already. So, who knows.

The FP+ component is most controversial, but the biggest area of concern there is if people can book FP+ and still use the FP system the day of. Also some people are concerned about booking rides far in advance and availability day of.

Time will tell, but I doubt there are any surprises that haven't already been explained in the interviews and the terms and conditions. It will change the way people tour Disney.

Resurrected old thread!

I would have thought there would be a lot more testing happening right now, it is really one of the only quiet and low crowd times of the year left.

Maybe there are some big ugly bugs in the system.

Most curious about:

How many people a day will want to use FP+ for counter service.

I don't see it ever taking off. Probably a few will use it at BOG. But beyond that? Nah. The problem is that if it's busy enough to need a CS fastpass, it's busy enough that you'll need it for rides even more.

What if they CS FP+ are not part of the three? Would people use them as bonus FP+? I am still not sure I would bother. I would never give one up for a ride.

But why does Disney think this is helpful? It is very prominent in the Terms and Conditions and they are making a big effort at BOG.

I think it would depend on how it played out in real life. If enough people used them to slow down the regular line, I'd fuss around about it, but do it myself.

That is the unintended side effect of adding fastpass to things that didn't need it before. Once it hits a certain level of usage, it slows down the regular lines so you really don't have much choice any more.

Fast pass +

I'm confused. They're saying 4 FP+ reservations per day. If I'm travelling with my Family of four will I be able to make the FP+ res. for all four people. Will each person be able to make them separately?

It's back to three a day. Once you link your family together, any person can schedule for anybody, or each person can change their own agenda and reschedule.

This is all through My Disney Experience the website and app.

Actually you can get 4 fast passes for MK if you use the fast picks. You can go back afterwards and customize them if you don't like the picks they've chosen for you. Others were saying it didn't work for the other parks, just MK.
