What I don't get is why is Maelstrom in the same group as Test Track & Soarin'. Is it really that popular?
That's just to make it look like it's not all about TT and Soarin IMO.

ETA... Interesting, and it seems to be only doing that to the Epcot choices. For MK, AK and Studios you can still pick from 3 FP+ for any ride.
It doesn't look like a glitch.

It's not a glitch unfortunately. I think Disney is trying to test all their options before a full roll out. One attraction they did not put on the tier 1 lost was mission space. I believe Disney is going to figure out that there needs to be some perk whether it depends on which hotel you stay on property or off or even if you pay to get more. One thing that is good about this is it's only at Epcot it's not everyday it's only on certain dates of November @Epcyclopedia: Test Dates: November 4, 8, 11, 15, 16, 17, 19, 20, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 29 Dec 1, 5, 6, 7, 9, 10, 12, 16, 22, 23, 24, 25, 27, 28, 29
This is still only a test it can still be changed I just think Disney is weighing all of the options out there.

Right? I just hope this shuts up the people who say it is wrong to keep pulling paper fastpasses during this test.

All three of my FP+ are in that first group (12/9). Guess I won't be changing them.

It's a test right now, but it seems to indicate to me that they are concerned about prebooking availability for those rides.

Maybe they are thinking that if you are staying there a week, you would probably spend two days at Epcot to see it all anyway, so if they break those two rides up, no big deal, you just ride the other one the other day.

That's no "glitch", it's too specific a structure in the database interface. The best to hope for is it's something they're testing and may not keep, or something they built and don't intend to use but it accidentally got into production. It's kinda like if Germany had a detailed plan to invade France that they had decided wasn't worth it, and then accidentally left it out on the table when they came over for a summit.

But but but... I thought FP+ was EXACTLY THE SAME as FP, and therefore no one should hate it? :face palm:

Really glad I booked my FPs the last few days. We are going Christmas week, based on several prior successful Christmas weeks. Talk about not being optimistic about our trip...

Those dates aren't correct. The screen shot above is from November 13th. Also the FP+ I booked for a friend at Epcot for tonight have been changed. She no longer has Soarin and Test Track, just Maelstrom. I hope that part is a glitch.

I have yet to voice any opinions on FP+ at all, as I won't be using it for a year, and I want to see how it all shakes out. But this really irks me! I surely hope this doesn't turn out to be the way they keep it!

They don't change, this is just if you are picking FP+ now.
