We never do RD. I did it once and I was so stressed out I will never do it again, until my kids are older and they tell me they want to do it.

This definitely is not something I want to see, but I understand that Disney has to test the system the way they see fit.


Have always said even one headliner is better than the current system for us, but will try to stay on the down low because 2 or 3 would still be better. Still zero chance we will be in a park before noon.

As for EPCOT-we have actually met at IG late am, walked in-then everyone went back to BCV to either hit SAB or breakfast, while just one of us walked over to TT before all FP were gone.

That way we would have at least one FP for TT that week. It was actually nice to have that FP for later when we were ready to go into EPCOT.

Ugh - not happy about this.

I was already able to choose FP+ rides during that time on my BF's ticket, but i'm getting a special rate ticket that I can't link until I get there. Hopefully this wont' mess with the plan to get me on teh same FP+ times as his ticket once we get there....

This isn't a matter of the system being buggy. Not everyone has encountered bugs in this process.

This is WDW FP+ developers being morons! This was an intentional change and personally, I hope that everyone will send them an email complaining about the changes. They won't know that we are unhappy unless we tell them.

I could see it at DHS to try to space out the DHS crowds from TSMM.

Although I think everyone will still choose TSMM. But it would spare some availability at either ToT or RnR to do the same thing there. I think if they felt the need here, they can't help but feel the need there as well.

I am having a similar situation. DD and I will be in parks Dec. 5. DH can't take off of work and get there until the night of Dec. 9. He is not listed on our package because he will not have nine day park hoppers; he only needs 5 day hoppers. We will have to add him to our resort and buy his passes when he arrives. I had planned to copy our fp+ to him then. DD and I have all three "headliners" as our 3 fp+ booked now. I hope we will still be able to copy our fp+ to DH!

I don't know why people are complaining about this..
This opens up more times for FP-...
Nobody's forcing you to take part of the test.. With these restrictions regular FP people will have better chances to do their "thing" now..

We wouldn't have been affected by this anyway, as we don't enjoy Test Track or Mission: Space, and didn't use one of our selections on them.

Now, if this had been the Studios and they were restricting ToT, RnRC, and TSMM I would have been a bit shaken up even though I made my FP+ selections as soon as I could and tweaked them to our liking already. Won't be touching *anything* now, and I've printed out the pages with all of our FP+ times and will have my sister take a screenshot of each park's FP+ page on her phone. I'm paranoid like that.

Incidentally, I just went to look at my checkout day (Jan 1) and I have Soarin available but not TT.

I am becoming more & more comfortable with my decision not to renew my AP. I will miss my trips, but honestly... I miss my trips from 2011, so no use throwing good money after bad. Each trip it gets harder and harder to tour as we like.

But here's the difference between you and me then. I'm not going to let the fact that I can't ride Soarin' or might have to stand in a longer line for it, RUIN my vacation.

This is where this is being blown out of proportion, IMO. Does it stink that they did this? Yes it does. Does it make riding those rides harder? Yes. But it won't ruin my vacation. My vacation consists of a lot more than just being able to ride headliner rides.

This is a brilliant move.

Now the Fastpass+ of just last week looks a lot more appealing doesn't it?

All the complaints will suddenly ease up when they reinstate the initial FP+ choices.

I hope that was supposed to be a joke?

I had a stick of CareFree gum, but it didn't work. I felt pretty good while I was blowing that bubble, but as soon as the gum lost its flavor, I was back to pondering my mortality.

Anyone else having problems selecting MK attractions past 5 PM on the week of Nov 11? None of my FP+ Selections for Nov13 are displaying times past 5 PM!
