ah but not true b/c if you are staying off property you are, at least for now, treated as a 2nd class visitor ala no FP+, no MB.

Yes, I admit I actually LOLed for reallies when I started reading that thread and realized what Disney did with the Epcot tiers. It's like they're toying with the DISers ON PURPOSE. Bwahahaha.

Sure, if you have a disappointing experience you can - and should! - protest to the management (ie, write directly to Disney).

And yes, getting a hamburger when you ordered filet IS a First World Problem. It wouldn't traumatize me, I simply would post my experience on Yelp and never return to that restaurant.

I doubt Disney would toy with their guests...not a good business model! This tiered FP+ system is the one my family tested in early December of last year. Looks like Disney is testing it again. For some reason it seemed more restrictive at MK than the other parks.

I don't think they are actually toying with them, LOL. I don't think they care about the Disboards either. It's just amusing because if one had to custom engineer a move to agitate the already emotionally taxed DISers, this tier system would be it.

Looks like Disney is testing the tiered functionality. I absolutely think the number of e ticket FP+s will ultimately be tied to resort level at some point.

I am fine with this because I still firmly believe Disney is doing the right thing by upgrading the technology. I don't always stay deluxe and I am not a Disney apologist but I will adapt to the system or stay home.

And yes, this is the ultimate first world problem, which makes me very thankful as a whole.

Watching and learning and hoping things improve before January! So far these are the best boards to prepare people for upcoming trips!

I couldn't agree more, especially when you take into account, that as a whole, out of the millions of visitors per year Disney gets, DISboarders are probably such a small percentage of visitors, it would hardly show up on their radar!

Yep.

Normally, I'd be amused by all this... similar to the OP... but this is my $10,000 hamburger.

I am fascinated with the whole thing just from a business point of view. That's why I read all of these threads. It's not really personal for me. If a trip stinks for whatever reason, I just won't go back.

But yes, anyway, still fascinating.

It's personal for me, I'm not going to lie. But I also love looking at this from a business perspective. Can they pull it off? How will it change along the way? Stay tuned!

It's like a very very very slow moving reality show

I think we tour differently from what I've read of your posts, so I am probably not as annoyed personally yet by the whole thing.

But fascinating nevertheless.

What if you ordered filet, but while they were still cooking it you saw smoke coming from the kitchen and got the idea that it might not be as good as the one you had last year? Would it be too early go into full snark mode?
