Yes it was. We have been over Christmas week, as as DS & DIL. We know to be at the gate 45 minutes prior to opening. However, with the current situation of FP being gone often by 9:30, during October, how soon will they be gone over Christmas?

Were we all not told by WDW that the beauty of FP+ was that we could relax a bit and not have to wait at the gate for 45 minutes prior to opening? Isn't that the purpose of FP+ to schedule your rides? I accepted the restriction of 3 rides, I have not complained about FP+. I thought well we will just try it out and see how it goes. But this would be too far if they restrict FP+ down to 1 headliner.

My heart goes to those with little ones who will be disappointed, and we can only hope that WDW knows what they are doing and will fix it, ASAP

So my fastpass+ that disappeared is back now after signing out and then back in again. All of this is enough to give me heartburn!
I do not have an apple product, so I guess I can print all of these fastpass+ off now so they don't disappear again.

Already seeing several on this thread who are rattled.

I tested FP+ and disliked it for numerous reasons, but I did recognize that it would provide FP opportunities for those who don't like to be there at park opening or don't like to run around gathering FP's. That happens to not be me as I always make rope drop and gather FP's while touring. Reducing FP+ headliner availability is not appealing no matter how you tour.

As it was the system was less than ideal but tolerable. This change is anything but. It seems to be true for those arriving into Jan 5 as well.

I hope those with Nov/Dec/early Jan trips who feel negatively impacted by this call and email Disney with their concerns!

Well if you go at rope drop this just forces you to do the one you don't have a FP+ reservation for first.

ctrl prtsc will give you a screen shot. Then paste it into something like MS Word.

If you reply, please explain as if to a child as I am NOT tech savvy.

Thanks, everybody.

I thought the very thing people liked about FP+ was that it allowed you to sleep in and not do rope drop.

Wow, it took minutes for that person to copy and past that as their own original stuff! Dates are now closed all Nov and Dec.

What do you mean by "dates are closed" for November and December?

Hi Kenny, I assume you were just referring to the other poster? Not sure why you quoted my little blurb? I was just reporting what I saw. I didn't even know you wrote about the new FP+ until after someone gave a link to your site. Just don't want you to think I was trying to pass off your info as mine.

I went at rope drop all week even with FP+ reservations.

I was able to ride Soarin twice stand by and Test Track once via the single rider line, and then I used my FP+ later in the day.
