The conventional wisdom is that "super-users" will still have an edge.

You (we) will arrive early with a good touring plan to avoid long lines in the morning and be educated enough on the FP+ system so that we have reserved FP+ for the best rides and times well in advance.

I keep seeing the bolded repeated as a mantra. Unfortunately, not everyone has the luxury of choosing to go during off times. Dh is a teacher. Our only option is summer (or Christmas, but we choose to be home during Christmas and it's just as busy then anyway.) We go every August and while yes, it's hot and crowded, we've always been able to maximize RD and use of legacy fp so that we rode as many rides as we wanted while rarely waiting in lines. Our kids are the kind that like to re-ride their favorites again and again.

We're actually choosing to take this year off from Disney while we watch from a distance to see what final form fp+ takes on after this trial (and error) period. Our vacation dollars will be spent at another destination this year.

It already has a cape! And some killer footwear.
Excellent!!!

Probably wise. To be honest, FP+ or FP-, I would never vacation at WDW during peak season. Did it twice and both trips produced vacations that we hated. Even the WDW magic couldn't overcome my problems with the crowds. Each of us has to make choices, and there are lots of great places to vacation other than WDW.

You don't have to go Disney free. I hear DLR is a great place to retreat from the FP+ madness.
