You're probably right, but there may be a lot more capacity if they include some of the lesser attractions and things like parade viewing area.

I wondered where you were in all this discussion yesterday. Taking the time to book a new trip in a the spring to try it out for yourself, no doubt.

The parade and fireworks viewing will probably consistently comsume a decent amount of FP+ capacity. But I just can't imagine it would be enough to give everyone 3 FP+ slots out of the gate, plus allow them to pull FPs throughout the day.

Could be totally wrong though. That's total speculation on my part.

But raise your hand here if you're going to use a FP+ slot for Philharmagic or House of Presidents. Or if you won't just be totally ticked off if you schedule a trip, log in, and find those are the only sort of options left.

Waiting.

Not exactly that, but I did look in on these threads to see that the deck was being properly shuffled.

So is there any real information regarding this new RFID Bracelet and FP+ system or is it all just speculation for us AP holders right now??

I've signed into the "New" website and got everything setup there, but don't see any information regarding the RFID Bracelets/FP+

Plenty of real information now, but not specifics about how AP holders will be handled yet. It's not ready just yet.

You won't find anything on the web site, since it's not ready yet.

Why can we just get 15 per week. No more 3 per day.

I think my only hope in this is that the less educated tourist will reserve fp's for the attractions we know they don't need them for . I do think they will phase out the old fp system. I will miss it.

What's not ready yet, FP+ or the website?

That's all I'm really concerned with, how us APs will be treated with these changes.

I'm semi-local and make frequent weekend trips, my APs expire in May and I want to make sure that the changes will be worth it for me to renew for 2013. My kids absolutely love going, but if Disney is going to make it harder for us locals then I can spend my money elsewhere (US, IOA, BG)

Both

FP+ is not out there yet. In theory, I'd say it is at least 60 days out, since that's the reported amount of time in advance you'll be able to make selections.

Since FP+ is not available yet, neither is that portion of the web site.

And it can't be argued that the current web site is "not ready yet"

Maybe that's where the Quick-Picks (or whatever it's called) come in:

"We see you like music, shows, and animals, so may we recommend Enchanted Tiki Room for your FP+?"
