We can't seem to get the FP+ times to change right. App kept freezing on me. Went to try a kiosk but they were down. There was an IT person there. He looked into my account and called me several hours later to say everything looked ok. It wasn't letting me make a FP+ for Pirates for before 2pm even though it had a 10 minute wait.

Changing things day off isn't as easy as I had hoped. It definitely feels like it is changing our style of touring. Or we are having to change our touring to fit the FP+.

You CAN already do this. Just because it gives you groups of times, say test track from 10-11, mission space from 11-12, and soarin from 12-1 doesn't mean you can't change them around. Move test track to the 12-1 spot, mission space to the 10-11 spot, and soarin to 6-7 if you want.

Yup! I take the times closest to what I want and then move them around. The only restriction when doing this is that you can only move them to times on the hour. It would be nice to be able to schedule them at x:15 or x:20 instead.

On the MDE website, go to the My plans section, and then select the day you want. At the top left, there's an "add to my plans" button with a drop down giving you the option to add parades & fireworks, etc to your plans

Actually, occasionally mine come up all on the hour, and then one that is like 11:20-12:20. Not sure if it is affected by your current FP selections or just luck of the draw...

Yes, but when you go to change any of the FP+ times you are only offered times on the hour.

I asked to speak with someone higher up. I truly do not understand how they can read how many days are left on my ticket but cannot convert my tickets. I'm frustrated as a loyal Disney customer. I've been on multiple Disney cruises, I go to WDW or DL every year. I've bought numerous annual passes. Heck, I've even been to Aulani in Hawaii.

I'm frustrated as I feel it isn't fair and I explained. I wouldn't have a problem with my tickets not being convertible if those that were using FP+ could not double dip. I can see if they had problems with using the magic bands and their tickets got missed up but not if it works. I don't feel like they should double dip. I think, Disney has made this totally unfair.

The reps solution was for me to buy another 10 day no expiring pass and reserve my FP+ tickets and then, when I get to Disney convert them to my old passes. All I can imagining is that it doesn't transfer right and I lose all my reservations. I really don't have $2k to burn right now for new tickets.

Off to see what else there is to do in Orlando. I already planned at day at Universal. I will send out an official e-mail to Disney expressing my displeasure.
Please explain how double dipping as you put it, isn't "fair?" If you were able to get the FP+ using your existing tickets then it would be okay, but since you cannot, you're upset about double dipping. Well, imagine if you will, this scenario. Any person, walking into any Disney Park on a day pass, can have as many fast passes as they want. Is it "fair" that a person staying at a resort (thereby spending far more money with Disney) and helping them "test" the new system be limited to only 3 for that day, and only to that one park? So, in order to make it fair, they allow you to also obtain traditional legacy paper fast passes. Otherwise, what would be the incentive to test the system, everyone would tell Disney to pound salt, and just use the legacy system where they could have as many as they wanted, and not be limited to only 3!

No, that's what I'm saying, usually when changing mine, the times listed are on the hour, but occasionally, some of them come up at 20 minutes after, or 25 min after, or 35 min after the hour. No rhyme or reason, just occasionally.

Yes. but if you were to try to change the time it would only give you times on the hour. The exception is if you have another FP+ at, say, 10:15 it may give you 9:15 or 11:15 options. Other than that you cannot reschedule them for anything other than times on the hour. It would be nice, IMO, if you could

I agree, especially for popular attractions very close to one another, like Test Track and Misison Space, or Splash Mtn and BTTMR, it would be great to have fast passes closer together. Guess we'll see how it works in 13 days, but so far, I'm super impressed with this system, of being able to pre-select what we consider to be the essential Fast Passes, and then change the times on the fly to suit our needs.

To be fair, I'm in IT and I love all things computer and technology, and I love planning Disney Trips, so this is right up my alley. It's taken the place of my spreadsheet, and Google Calendar to keep it all straight. One place for everything, and now FP+ too!
