No, it wasn't a system problem. It is the new normal with FP+.

I just booked all my FP+, with 2 small kids, we'll do MK 2 halfs + 1 whole day, so I did 3 "areas" of contiguous FPs... so 9 FPs for MK. I'm really looking forward to using it.. Nervous about the technical glitches tho!
Then again, I absolutely LOVE spreadsheets and planning!
Starting Oct. 31st all ADR's must be secured with a Credit Card. You need to cancel 24 hrs in advance or they charge you CC $10 a person for a no show.

24 hours from booking, or 24 hours ahead of time?

24 hours before your reservation time. So if you have aADR on dec 25 at 11 am you have until dec 24 at 11 am to cancel. That is my understanding.

You have to cancel 24 hours before the actual ADR.

"In my day, we didn't have fancy Fastpasses and Magic Bands. We woke up at the crack of dawn to get in line for rides. The lines were 5 hours long and there was no shade, you'd have to bring a change of clothes and salt tablets because you'd sweat so much. We only had time for 3 rides a day and we liked it!!"

I was actually disappointed to miss the Pooh and Dumbo and Ariel lines. (Actually played with DS 15 mins before going on Ariel).

Sigh! Maybe I am going to miss FP-

I think the biggest upset I have with it is that I tend to be a spontaneous person for half of my vacation... I don't know what park I'm going to end up in half the time, and it forces me to have my park days planned out two months ahead of time.

But hey, we will adapt and the best thing we can do is keep giving Disney honest feedback about our concerns. Hopefully this isn't a disaster for much longer. ::crosses fingers::

And for those of you going and using the system,
I like hearing the bad AND the good. The more info the better.

I just checked the MK wait times. There are still FP times available for all rides. I was at DW over the Columbus Day weekend. I saw lots of FP availability, even later in the day.

End of the world? Death? No. But waiting in line for many hours more than in the past after paying thousands of dollars is not most people's ideas of progress.

Is this a FACT or your OPINION? If it's a FACT, can you share the supporting facts to go with it? I personally would be interested in your role in the FP+ project as well as the involvement of all your sources. I'll assume if this is fact then none of your supporting facts are based on Guest experiences over a brief time period.

I didn't read the whole thread, just to here and wanted to respond.

I assume this may not have been entirely serious, but I do think there is some truth to it. Instead of FP+ or FP or anything, do what some other competing parks have done, you can either buy a front of the line OR those staying on-site get some advantage.
