All FP machines to be removed from Animal Kingdom by next week and....

I have just heard that animal kingdom is set to remove all FP machines by next week. They will be the first park to do this.

So make sure to get yor FP+ selections done and finalized if you haven't done so already.

Also tomorrow Friday the 13th, day/offsite guests will be testing FP+ at EPCOT.

Something like that. I wasn't there but that's what I was told. Mostly told because we collect FPs and would want to get one on the last day.

Wow that is crazy fast if it is true! I just don't get why they would do this so close to the busiest time of the year! Why wouldn't you work out the kinks in the slower months? I am happy to be honest, because that means that off site guests will be able to 'test' and figure out the system, which means that hopefully I will be able to book my fast pass selections ahead of our March vacation!

Are you saying you were told they are getting rid of them? If so,why do we have to make sure we get our FP and finalize them? We are coming Saturday and will be there one week. Wish they would do away with all the FP machines and do like they used too years ago. Get in line and wait your turn.

They are adding day guests into the mix so who knows how this will effect FP+ availability.

Came second hand to me from the DAK cast event this evening talking about the new plans for the park and avatar land. Supposedly this is what the VP of DAK announced.
