I probably should do a screen shot of our FP+ since I have 3 tier 1 headliners already scheduled for our trip next month.

I have done a screen shot of my FPP and printed them out as well. Not sure if it's going to help but I'm willing to give it a shot.

FP+ is just a mess. I don't get the need to plan every second of a vacation, its suppose to be fun and relaxing.

I think in the end many people will book FP+'s then not use them do to plans changing and forgeting and so on.

If that starts to be a big problem maybe they will start charging a credit card if you don't show up! They started doing it for dining so why not for ride reservations??

Because you're not paying anything for rides ... you don't show, it's better for Disney, shorter lines, happier guests- they aren't losing money like they might be for no-show dinner reservations.

Anybody else notice how pathetic those headliners are? The maelstrom? The Mickey line?

Lol...bring it on. If they somehow think I'm gonna pay more money to prebook 50 second rides on things built 20,30,40+ years ago...be my guest and try...

It will be a real loss of $7-15,000 worth of discretionary spending each year. Plus I'll dump the DVC.

I'm honestly laughing...

I am anxious to see how this whole system plays out...honestly...
I'm beginning to think somebody forgot to plan what to do with this beyond the test phase...which may seem impossible, but don't doubt Disney's ability to miss the elephant in the room and waste the money they so crave.

When Headliners don't exist you have to make up headliners.

There are 10 kinds of people in the world-- those who understand the binary numbering system, and those who do not.

Yeah-- the only park I would want more than three would be MK. Epcot has two headliners, HS has 3, and AK has 3. So Mk is done in two days. I don't believe anyone will ever need a FPP for figment. or MS, or (insert attraction here).

And as I am sure you already know-- Right now at the average resale price we could recoup all our initial investments-- and when the POLY opens for 190-- probably make a nice profit.

This is exactly what I have been thinking-- they have no idea what they are going to do with this. They have not given any details because they don't have any. Lest build it and figure out what to do with it later. Hey it works (mostly)-- now what? Now they can use the new system to gather detailed information that may tell them not to build the new system.

Well..to be fair, EPCOT was never... And I hope never will be...about the rides.

It's no coincidence they are testing this idea there.

But I am confused, I was expecting and increase in the use, not a limitation. If they limit the booking options and severely curtail or eliminate the standard fastpass, wouldn't that result in having more people dumped into standard lines?
Which we all agree isn't what they're going for?

Hmmm.
Or are they stupid enough to think that a taste of the fastpass+/magic band nectar is so sweet that people will book extra days to behold its majesty?
Lol...that is rhetorical

Maybe the test is to see how p-d off people will be when they get their options reduced-- so they know what they can get away with-- They know people will be happy with more-- just need to know how unhappy people will be so they know where to draw the line. Three has been the control group for , well , up until a few days ago. Now lets try 1 and 2.....
