It sounds quite peaceful. . What time of the year do you usually travel?

If there is any justice left in the world... there will be no FP offered for Legend of Capt. Jack.

There are 10 kinds of people in the world-- those who understand the binary numbering system, and those who do not.

I wasn't indicating I would do rope drop-- more showing agreement with a plan for rope drop people to still get a great benefit from the new system.

Well, hello, Mary! I think there is a lot of people this will work for. I'm looking forward to having some FPP with out having to colect them during my park visit. Also looking forward to the reduction of people running through the parks and crashing into my family.

we are part of the crowd that maximizes FP and I have to say I am looking forward to FP+. We used to avoid FP because we didn't want to do double duty by hoofing it back and forth all day to get the prized FP. Then we were able to develop a touring style with FP and FP running that worked. Returning to the days of not doubling our walking in order to get some FP's is welcome. Also, if we have 4 FP+ attractions and avg. 1 hr wait for other attractions, that's 6-8 standby attraction in an 8 hr day in addition to 4 FP+'s, so I think FP+ won't feel like much of an overall change for us other than we get to save precious footsteps, which is worth a lot to us.

Totally agree with D1gitman. I think it will be advantageous in terms of maximizing the amount of attractions that you can ride as well as minimizing the amount of stress obtaining the FP.

This year it will be in September. I've checked the calenders and everything else we want to ride will be at most 20 minutes. Shouldn't be an issue, but as I mentioned if it is we'll skip it and ride later/another day. We have three MK days planed.

I've been to the parks when they were super crowded and I've been when I could walk on SM. All were fun because I was in WDW.

LOL is it that bad? My D is nuts about Capt. Jack. Glad to hear we won't need to "waste a FP+" on it because there are SO many other things we want to do at HS like Muppets 3D and Starring Roles cafe.

Is there anywhere on Disney's site or elsewhere that list yet what attractions will have FPP available?

It's ok to look forward to it I think it's going to work well for my family too, in theory. But in reality, I have to wait and see how it actually pans out and if we can get the ride schedule that is ok, and how much of a pain using the app is with this, does it make planning more of a pain, etc. The good thing is I can cancel a trip at 45 days if I am not happy after the 60-day signup, so I will be sure not to tell the kids before that. It's going to be tougher dealing with the airline tickets, but we'll see.

So there are a lot of unknowns for me..

Presumably it will be the selection list itself, when available
