Yes, and I have turned them down in the past.

If there has been ANYONE that has been able to get 4 or 5 FPs for TSMM, I would be impressed. And besides, they all have the SAME opportunity to be at the park at rope drop just like my family. How am I taking something away from them if they CHOOSE to not do the same. I did not lock them in their room. In fact, I am the first to tell them they should really be at the park at rope drop to be able to do all they want to do with short waits. I ALWAYS encourage everyone to do the same as me!! If they do, then there would be no worry about be getting an extra FP for that ride again because before I am able to get, they will get it. But I also don't think I should sit on my hands or stand in a 2 hour line when there are FPs available so that you can have a swim in your pool before coming to park and still get a FP.

Oh gosh, I hope I don't try to give you one. I'm not being mean - it just struck me. I definitely respect your right to your own opinion. I guess if you turned it down without telling me that I'm a rule-breaker, it might be okay ...

The history that will serve as context to UNCFanatik's ranting about people "abusing" the system by giving away FPs they couldn't use (I'm paraphrasing from memory of another FP+ thread) :
IIRC, UNCFanatik was all excited to take their kid to CRT many years back. And because there was a group of people who would scoop up the much-coveted CRT ADRs and redistribute them as pixie dust to others, UNCFANATIK couldn't get the ADR.

Well then you and I fundamentally disagree, but I'm okay with that.

FWIW, I've also torn the tags off my pillow cases and mattresses and don't hold the handrail on the escalator.

But would you have a problem with that same person who swam in the pool before coming to the park and didnt get there until, lets say, noon, and another guests hands them TSMM FPs?

Maybe I'm wrong, but throwing an unused fastpass away would not help the standby line move any faster. It would only help the fastpass line to move even faster.

I had a stick of CareFree gum, but it didn't work. I felt pretty good while I was blowing that bubble, but as soon as the gum lost its flavor, I was back to pondering my mortality.

I was just going to say the same thing! What if I had attempted to hand you two FP to Snorin', UNC? Would you have accepted them and smiled or would you set me straight by explaining the rules to me instead? I can't imagine you would accept them and then throw them in the nearest trashcan so as to follow your own sense of logic. Would you?

Edit....nevermind....I just saw your earlier reply. *sigh*

I would have politely said, "no thank you" as I have in the past and moved on.

That's a good way to handle it.

Believe it or not!!! I would not be angry. I would wish it was me but I never get upset seeing someone else happy. I have seen it happen and I have never been angry about it. Even if I wasn't able to get a FP for that ride. The choices I made (not getting there in time, choosing to ride another ride first or having to stop and go to the bathroom) is what prevented me from getting a FP. Not this little party of 2,3,4 or 6 got some FPs and were unable to use them. I just don't see the world that way. No one is keeping me getting what I want. It is my choices that may keep me from getting something I want not the other guy. I choose to not blame others what I do not get. I'm sorry if seeing other people have something magical happen to them while at the most magical place on earth makes you so upset.
