Thanks for starting this thread Andy. I was off the boards for Lent, and am still trying to get all caught up on the news!

As far as the machines they will be gone not right away but they will go away.. Myself being a DVC member do not like all this planning but until this starts I will wait and see how it goes.. Getting all upset now really just gives you a ulcer...One last thing the latest roll out is now late July early Aug..If I find out more I will Post here ..And thanks Andy for this Thread....
I know nothing is set it stone, but wow July and early Aug. Seems like the height summer touring season is not the best idea for a roll out. But as you said, who knows if what they say today ends up being what happens tomorrow.

What has surprised me most about the information that has come out so far is the inability to reserve FP+ at more than one park if you have a park hopper ticket. As popular as that ticket option is (not to mention that APs allow for hopping as well), you think they would allow an extra reservation at another park or something to accommodate. Maybe it just isn't possible at this point.

Also curious if any knows if they will be allocating only a certain percentage of total FP+ available for the day to advance reservations? I don't recall seeing it being discussed in the threads I've read, but may have missed it, or more likely, it is an unknown. I can just imagine the large number of guests who show and purchase tickets at the park enter the park to find there are no FP+ available for the day for say BTMRR for instance being extremely disappointed in their Disney experience if there isn't something done to assure there are FP+ available on the day for all attractions. Or if you book something last minute (as I often do), and you run into the same scenario.

Also, FP+ "button" is nowhere to be found on my iPhone/iPad app, not even under the hidden areas....
It's been buried in a move with the last release.

I hope Disney wakes up and realizes this is going to be a MAJOR dissatisfier. Who wants to wake up one day and find out the several thousands they're planning to spend is going to buy them one short wait for a headliner per day?

I try linking reservations to My Disney Experience and it worked about 2 weeks ago. Now when I log in there is nothing linked. When I try to link my res. again they tell me that they belong to Mrs. ******** - that's me! and it still won't let me access my info.

I'm curious how they will put FPs back into inventory from "those people who don't come and use their FP"? Won't the time-frame be past for those FPs? They can't take away your FPs before the end of your time frame, right?

And I don't see how they can reserve a large enough space for parade FP+s to accommodate everyone in the front, which is where they will want to be - I think you will find that people with parade FP+ will still claim their curbs early and wait, especially if they realize that the space is limited. I cannot imagine (for me) how awful it will feel if they start holding all of Main St for FP+ only - yuck! - and that is going to take a LOT of CMs to monitor.

Going in October - been wondering about this all along. FP+ concerns me - I don't want to be one of the first to test something, cuz I'll prolly screw something up. I only go every 5 years or so so I'm not expert enough to really work with something new till others have figured out all the kinks, lol.


I DO want a MagicBand tho - really, really want a NBC Jack band, but maybe a POTC one?

Thanks for info!
