Also I am offsite so I will need to do this in the parks. Can I pick my hours to do these rides? Or are they done based on relative time like say you have to pick one pre lunch, lunch and after lunch.
You can do those combos of rides, assuming they are available when you select them. I do not know how the FP+ system determines the return windows for each ride, but there are definitely others around here who understand that aspect better than I.

Thanks mesaboy2 for all of this great info!

Is it possible to know the show times at Hollywood Studios for early March? I want to make sure I don’t schedule my FP times during Lights, Motor, Action! (and don’t think I need to use one of my FPs for that show).

Probably not this early. You can get a general idea from http://wdwent.com/st/st.htm, which gives you exact times for all shows for the current week.

And Lights Motors Action has one of the most consistent show time schedules: (first show at 1:30, 1:20, or 1:10, and second show at 4:10, 4:20, or 4:30; on peak-peak days there may also be a third show in the morning).

Again, I apologize if this info is in this thread somewhere, but I was wondering if the FP+ times are like the legacy FP ones, for an hour. Does the MB reader reject you if you are early or late? Can you get overlapping times? I was thinking that Soarin, for ex., is such a short ride and if you got a time like 5-6 pm, would you be unable to get Turtle Talk with Crush for 5:30-6:30? Now that I am starting to plan, more questions keep popping into my head! Thanks for your help.

If you need to do rider swap for, say Space Mountain, does everyone who's riding need fp+ scheduled or just the 1st group of riders? I can't find a straight answer anywhere and would hate to only schedule half my group for any fp+ where we're using rider swap if we all need to have it scheduled... Does that make sense?

They are an hour long, and will not allow you to overlap them. The grace period is up to 5 minutes early and up to 15 minutes late, but I would avoid relying on the GP if at all possible.

I'm sorry I don't know, my only understanding is that rider swap works the same way with FP+ as it did with FP.

Added many of the current and basic operational aspects of FP+ to first post.
