Well if you're not one of the families that's got fp+ you are a second class guest even if like us you've spent £1000 on tickets for the pleasure. At the rope drop today for epcot sorin 5.45pm fastpass, test track gone within 15mins and 90 min wait. So folks unless you've got fp+ you will be marginalised. "Still testing" apprantley, be prepared people if you're not staying with Disney you will be cheesed off.

I'm becoming more and more convinced than ever that last Wednesday's debacle at DHS really was not a glitch. As unsold as I have been on the new system, I really thought the severe shortage of same day FPs wouldn't happen until it was rolled out to all AP holders and offsite guests. I can't even fathom what that will be like.

People get way too caught up in making sure they have the perfect trip with the perfect experiences. Funny thing is the parents say "but my KIDS want. . ." and 9 out of 10 times the kid could care less. (meaning the crazy people trying to kill each other for TSMM, not anyone here)
I understand. It isn't for everyone. When we have been there in June, my DH went ahead and pulled a FP while me and DS either did some character greets or got in line for the first Disney Jr. show. Usually our FP return time was around lunch or a little after. We never experience some of the extreme stories of the pushing and shoving I see but believe there are times when things like that happen. I won't say I haven't been cut off or cut in front of but TSMM isn't the only place in Disney that that has happened to me.

I agree, not a glitch IMO.

I'm also wondering how Disney is going to roll this out to all offsite ticket holders, including APs. I bet Disney is wondering the same thing at this point...

It was a glitch. I was there and they were handing out FP tickets at noon at TT and had a CM asking ppl if they wanted a FP ticket and to go over to the one machine to get one. Complete glitch. You couldn't get FP+ slots either.

The issue happened at both EP and DHS.

I have heard of it happening for Soaring too but didn't have that experience (thank goodness!). We tend to ride it stand by when the line is shorter. (at night, early a.m. etc.)

I like TSMM but I don't think there is any attraction worth the way I saw people were acting.

This, exactly.

Now, my experiences may be different, since I have a DD5 and a DS9, and maybe things will be different once they're teenagers.

I only wanted two fast passes for one day and it suggested one more- that I can't use because the times are before we will get there but I could not cancel it at all. I kept it but how wrong is that? someone else might want it. But it will not let me cancel it without cancelling the others.

You aren't stuck with the time it gives you, you can change the time of individual fast passes. And it gives you all available possible times for that fast pass for that day

And you absolutely can cancel individual passes.

Please let me know how that is possible. The only option for canceling is to cancel them all. I just went in and book 3 for tonight and the only cancel option canceled all my FP+.

Just got back from a week at the mouse with FP+ and this is exactly how the people without it should feel it was bad.

Most of us could really use the exercise.
~Hi Candle! I totally agree. You haven't lived until you've experienced the "running of the bulls" at DHS! It's so amazing!

Even more helpful is that I've got Soarin and Test track for the afternoon of my incoming travel day! Who knew that one day, I could get to Epcot at 2 and not have to worry about standing in the standby lines for those two.

The interface still needs a lot of work IMO, but the end product is great!
~Wow, this is a fabulous review! You totally give me hope.

I am looking forward to this Nov trip and I think I am going to enjoy it way more now that I don't have to run all over. It has also allowed me to figure out ways to do things we never have before, such as the shows. For whatever reason we would always overlook them when the questions of "what next" would come up. Now I can even see before I get there how I can fit them in between my scheduled FPs.
~Fabulous post! I never really thought of it in this way. But, after some thought I totally agree!
