Fastpass + What we know conversation DIS unplugged

There was a good discussion on DISunplugged yesterday (Feb 12) about FP+. They used the What We Know, What We Want to Know thread that so many people contributed to as a starting point.

Video Podcast

They explore a lot of issues connected to MyMagic+ and Fastpass+ and many other connected areas.

Thanks! I'll be listening to the Podcast today for sure. We are going in December and I feel like the whole Fastpass +/Magic Bands is the biggest unknown of our trip. It's a huge unknown that COULD have a big impact.

We are going around the same time and I hope that all the issues are worked out and it is running smoothly by then. They have 9+ months to figure it out with the entire busy summer season to get it right.

I agree, we are going in October. And this is really the only thing that stresses me. I am one of those "unplanning" people. I have a few ADRs in mind over our 9 day stay but to actually plan which park each day so far out gives this "go with the flow" girl the heebie jeebies.

I know there are touring plans that have a best park day, but I really don't want to be that structured on vacation.

I would love more info on this as well! We are going in Sept and at this point honestly, I don't care if it is or isn't there I just want to know! I love the old FP- I can't do anything but try the FP+ but I really want to know if I need to get logged on at 60 days out to schedule rides!

Can't listen until after I'm done with work. Anything new that was in the podcast or just rehashing what we already knew?

Rehashing what we already knew. But it was nice to hear some of the same concerns voiced in that thread said out loud in another forum.

I am now within my 60 day arrival window, staying on site. It is so frustrating not knowing what to expect on my vacation. I don't live local and probably won't be back for another 2-3 years.

I agree! Same concerns. It was a fun show, and I enjoyed hearing their perspectives.
