World of Color FPs were not connected to the other FPs. It was a good way to organize the crowds. Those who held FPs for the second show lined up back behind a closed ride and filed in right after the first was over.

This will definitely be interesting to watch unfold.
Maybe everyone in the park gets one FP+ for wishes.

I couldn't believe the number of FPs people's led up for this... We got lucky, and a CM let us into the dinner package area b/c it was our anniversary!

WoC FP is not connected to the system, ( on wiki it says the viweing area holds 5000) but maybe counting it against the limit is how they could get 4 fp+ out of the system at wdw with parades and shows?



All I meant by rumors /speculation of 3fp+ was that it didn't 't seem written in stone to me. I don 't think an interview makes it absolute. I hope its not true anyway. It will be our kids first trip to wdw at the end of April and since they are used to using fp at DL I think it would be disappointing to be so limited. Bcrook I think your updates have been great on fp+.

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.

This. We have two non-expiring tickets, one with 6 days and one with 10 days. Will they end up converting those two tickets to RFID or will I have to go to a ticket booth every time I'm there and switch them out for the number of days I want to use?

I still don't understand the 3 or 4 FP per day for one park only, though. Are they trying to phase out the PH option as well??

Past performance is in sync with that statement, for sure.

Big wigs under the gun will blurt out a line that was discussed at the most recent meeting.

It may or may not have much connection with the final decision.

Stay tuned.

Thanks Lauren for the latest scoop... And hope for multiple FP opportunities under this new system we all fear to some extent since as the PP said, those of us here can easily get 6-7 FP with our rope drop strategies and touring plans.

Perhaps if it is 4 pre-booked, they will be in categories as others have suggested, e.g. 3 attractions and 1 non attraction. Hopefully they won't further aggregate into only 1 Superheadliner, 1 headliner and 1 whatever ride...

I get it, you are correct we don't know what the final number will be.

And I hope ..... your vacation is filled with great joy!

A group of us were thinking on the rumor board and crunched some numbers. They support your contention.

So is this likely to be in place by late May? Or is everything still speculation at this point? Have to say it seems a bit intimidating for the first time visitor.

Still speculation at this point, but it will likely be in use at-least partially. At that time both plans will likely be in effect. We go in Mid-June, my second visit, so I was at least comfortable with the traditional FP. At this point I'm less concerned with what it will be and more concerned about not knowing.

The Disney Brass introduced a flurry of information on January 7, and then disappeared. With the exception of when Iger reappeared to take some shots at Congress.

We have no idea when anything will start. I would think the app would have to work first. And...that...is...a...mess!

When the first people book their first FP+, there will be lots of information then.

My group will be down there at Kidani the second week of June. Smart money might still be on regular fastpass at that time, if people can resist the allure of magicband interaction. No matter what, I think people will second guess themselves. I wasn't planning on going into the Disney parks in June, but maybe I should do some recon for the big FW trip in October.
