Fastpass + for September 2013 Trip?

Hi, friends!

We are planning our September 2013 trip, and I've heard a lot about the Fastpass + program. Is that something that will be implemented by our trip? I know that they are in the testing phases now, but I wasn't sure if that was something I should be looking for at this point.

Of course, we made our dining reservations on the 180-day mark, but I've heard that people were needing to make Fastpass + "reservations" 180 days out, too.

Am I behind the eight ball on this, or is this program not completely open to the public yet?

I know there have been tons of questions about this, and I'm sorry for starting a new thread about it.

No one knows. It is not implemented yet.

OK, let me try to redeem myself by offering something a little more serious to the OP.

60 days (rather than 180 days) appears likely to be the earliest that FP+ can be reserved.

I am dubious that it will be available by September. It was supposed to be tested in January, but the testing has been delayed, and it is now nearly April with no new rumors (that I am aware of) of when testing will take place.

What would it say? We don't know anything about it because it hasn't been implemented yet so please stop asking about it? (And it's not like anyone reads the stickys anyway. )

Yes all that would happen is instead of everyone posting "we don't know" they would post "see the sticky" that would have one post saying "we don't know".

Since stickies are kind of like FAQ's. Since there are no official announcements yet, just people reading into CYA statements under certain "Terms and Conditions", that's all it can say.

So mods if you would like, feel free to make this post the non sticky sticky.

No offense, but I kinda like Cheshire Figment's response for that...

Well, I like the "does not exist" wrinkle.

It's kind of like the answer, "oh, you don't want to know that."

To which I like the response, "really? then why'd I ask?"
