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.

That just gave me a great idea. Maybe next year I'll just go visit him over at US.

Well, at least you'll have an eager audience here on the edge of our seats awaiting your reports when you get back.

Maybe there'll even be stories to tell the grandkids about some day.

Seriously, hope it goes well for you!

So when exactly will these fastpass machines be going away from AK? I'd like to know because we will likely just skip that park if that's the case while we're there.

If this is true then offsite guests won't have access to fastpass at all, at least for a while. That feels like putting the cart before the horse.

You know, I have to say, I'm just sitting here laughing and shaking my head. I mean what else are you going to do? This is the most unbelievable mess I've ever heard of and I'm wondering which God/Goddess/Deity/Teapot I angered by deciding to take a "magical" Christmas trip to WDW this year. I mean, we could have gone anywhere in the world and had a wonderful time, you know? But no. I decided that we needed to experience the magic of WDW at Christmas. At no time, during any of the initial planning for this "magical" trip, did I EVER imagine that I'd be here, two weeks out from Christmas wondering why on earth I ever thought that this was a good idea. Unbelievable.

Did someone say cookies?

Actually I'm surprised that this is "news". I was told this by two different CMs....both of whom were NOT impressed with the new system. I mentioned to one of them that I was an AP holder but didn't have a MB yet and were staying off-site this trip....was Disney going to mail my family the bands or should I go by guest services. She said that they were still "working" on that and that I very likely would get them in the mail. I honestly didn't hear ONE positive comment from a CM about the new system and they weren't very guarded in their comments either. The CMs were all cheerful and friendly but when you mentioned the FP+ and MBs their shoulders slumped.

Oh! Oh! I saw him! He was around earlier. On another thread, somewhere. And I'm sharing that headache, trust me.
