3 in a day might be the average for guests that currently use FPs. It could be where the number came from.

That may be. I wonder though, if the average person uses three - How happy will they be by being limited to one park a day, one FP per ride a day, and having to decide to use them for things we didn't use before. No matter what the average person is going to be limited on the headliners.

Initially the average person will be bitter, but with the turnover rate at the parks, it won't take long to build a new fan base.

Between the ADR system, EMHs, and this new Fastpass + system, a family that doesn't plan for months in advance is destined to be disappointed.....

Going to Disney is becoming a chore, which means it is definitely falling on my list of vacation choices. Plus, the idea of a tier system linked to the resort level is irritating me beyond belief - and I have stayed at hotels in each resort level.

I think they read our posts before writing their article. There were other things in that story that came directly from these threads!

Thinking about it....3 FP's a day for all the parks would be okay for us, except in MK. That would be rough....

If you use one for the fireworks, one for a meet and greet and one for Test Track. That would be the day. I wonder if it costs a FP+ to have a QS order waiting for you?

Yup! That would reach the same goal. But then they wouldn't be able to send out reminders: "No waiting on the Riverboat, come now and you can steer."

I was being negligent on my previous post, I forgot this little nugget:

Mr. Staggs explained that research indicated that guests — particularly mothers with strollers — viewed the turnstiles as an unpleasant barrier. “Small, subtle things can make a big difference,”
I am pooh sized.....I view the turnstiles as a skinny unpleasant barrier...and strollers don't go thru the turnstiles anyway...really?! I guess he couldn't say "pooh sized" guests hated the turnstiles..not politically correct! So name the one group that doesn't even use them! Genius!!!

I think 3 is a little thin as well-unless reg FP stays to.

But I can't see using a FP+ for Illuminations. If the wind that night is in your face you cant hardly see it and would move around the lake anyway IMO.
