WDW to get rid of FP by end of September-rumor?

Chip and Co. just posted an article (sorry, tried to link to article but didn't realize I can't) reporting that regular FP is being eliminated at the end of September. As an off-site guest arriving mid-October, that would be terrible news for me. But this just seems totally wrong, since not even every on-property resort is being invited to do FP+ for October, right?

Thoughts?

It doesn't make sense to me because Magic Bands and FP+ are still in testing through at least the end of October. Plus as you pointed out, off-site guests don't yet have the ability to use FP+.

I can't imagine that to be true.

According to the article, off-site guests will NEVER get the ability to get FP again. That seems inaccurate to me. And them making any kind of total change like that in a month's time seems impossible to me, since they've taken months of slow roll outs just to test FP+. It sounded crazy to me, just want to make sure I'm not the only one.

Doesn't pass the "sniff test."

I say it's 90% safe to IGNORE that "report."

I would chalk this up as a rumor and move on....especially considering the source they are re-posting if from.

Chip and Co's creditability just went down to a 0 with me. I realize they like to sensational things and get some sort of story out there to "buzz" their site. BUT to post something like this that has no credibility really looses points with me. I don't believe it for a minute. YES I do realize they posted their version of a disclaimer in the article. I'm sure that was done because even they don't believe it.

I won't go again if that turns out to be true. I won't be forced to stay onsite on every trip and I won't do without what others get (even for an extra cost if I have to).

The article is so inaccurate it's funny. They will absolutely NOT end FP until FP+ and Magicbands are 100% rolled out and running smoothly (which includes off-site guests and AP holders). And that will not happen by September/October. Maybe not even by the end of the year.

Don't worry. Disney has already said that you won't have to stay onsite to get FP+ and/or Magicbands.

I could imagine a perk in the future where onsite guests might get a bonus FP+ or something like that, but nothing extreme. They could pull a Universal and make offsite guests pay $30/day for the privilege, but don't count on it.
