i agree...
when i first heard about it, i thought it might be a good idea - in theory..
you would be guaranteed a ride on the big attractions, etc.

but now that i've actually been offered the opportunity to do it, i'm not all that thrilled by the concept..
i really can't figure out where i'll be at any given moment...
we also like to be spontaneous...at least to an extent...

this is just way too regimented for me...

and i have to wonder about first time visitors...how are they going to have any sort of clue as to when to schedule each thing, if i can't figure it out after 50+ visits...

Very true this will only be my 3rd time, but I didn't have a clue the first time, kind of went in blind folded, but the fast pass system was really easy to use! Now it would just blow my brains! Even though I've been a couple of times! Really not liking the magic band at all!

I am glad i going back to the world next year but i am totally confused on the whole fastpass+ thing and the american side of this site is really confusing so in the upcoming months i may be asking questions on how and what i need to do to fully make sure i understand fastpass+

There is another testing phase to take place in August which is by 'invitation' and Disney is clear that participants in this (who have the option to decline the offer to be part of the test) are participating in testing of the new system. It is extremely unlikely that this will be fully rolled out by the time you go and given the issues they are having even with such a small number of guests in the testing stages, I'd say it's fair to wager a 0% chance that you will be compelled to use it next month or that it will even be available to the general public.

It sounds like they are aiming for October sometime, but there is really nothing concrete to go on and it's possible it will be even later.

FP as you know it should still be up and running when you visit so it looks like your timing is good

So do you think this will end up a money making sceme, like Legoland have done over here?
Legoland now have 3 or 4 tiers for their version of fastpass .... all payable at different rates pp.... I am very local and have not renewed our annual passes since they rolled out that system.
I hope it will not become a class based system when only the very rich will be able to afford to use the Fastpass+

I also wonder if there will be the option to use FP OR FP+ indefinitely... or whether we will all be forced to use the FP+ ??

Ordinary FP is to be phased out

That is frustrating!!

Especially if they keep it at 3FP+ ..... we are looking at booking our 3rd visit, but DH likes to be a bit spontaneous..... I shall be keeping a close eye on the feedback on here, to try to understand how best to use them.

It is very much going to be a class based system. Rumors and speculation have it, reading between the lines of official information, that deluxe guests will get more than moderate guests, who will get more than value guests .... etc.

I wish they would just go and release the official information to let us plan and get on with it!

Who else thinks that the irony of all this "We have to plan so far ahead" actually has a flip side of preventing anyone not going in the next couple of months from planning at all?!! For example, all signs are pointing to EMH being eradicated at some point in the not too distant future. Previously I've happily used the last year's park hours to make a rough plan while waiting for the current ones for my next trip to be released. But as someone who uses both morning and evening EMH and builds a trip around it, and utilizes FP as a very integral part of my touring plan, the lack of information is ironically preventing me from even doing that!
