Thanks for sharing, CF.

Makes sense that they'd start doing the small group tryouts on the basic experience package...

Thanks for the update. Interesting that they are excluding DVC from the test. Probably to Keep it simple and deal with only one reservation system for now.

Kinda falls in line with what I was thinking. Selected tests getting started with real guests and slowly expanding over the summer. Working the kinks out in late August/September before the holiday & party season kicks off.

- We're not going in June or July
- We've never stayed (but would love to) at AKL or CR....

I'm thinking our chances of being selected are somewhat low.....

Like others I'll be interested to read reports from those who are lucky enough to get to 'play'!

I'm glad to get another trip in before widespread use.

I don't know if I'd turn down being part of the test if my dates fell within the range though. I want more details on how it all will work.

Fastpass as we know it will be a thing of the past soon. THE END IS NEAR!! Glad we are missing it, but curious how it will play out for our trip next year. By then someone will have figured out the system and what is best. Oh happy day!
