That's why I'm almost kind of glad I'm not going back until the system will be fully rolled out. I miss WDW but I'd like to use the system once it's finished.

I don't think that the creation of FP- is intentional I think will create more balance between the two systems.

Again there's some misreading.. I'm not saying they are INTENTIONALLY freeing up FP-, I'm saying it's a result of the upcoming testing.

Why didn't they realize this before they entered the 60 day window of the holiday season?

I don't think they have to do this at MK because it has so many more big attractions, although we will see during the holidays how well it holds up.

Don't be surprised if at some point they allow 4 or 5 FP+ at the MK, while Epcot stays at 3 (or is it really effectively only 2?)

Valid option. For me FP was never a main stake in our trips, so it really doesn't effect me.

And just because they are restricting access to the headliners does not mean any FP- will be freed up. Those spots are staying in FP+ and will be used up by FP+ users.

Thinking WAAAY back to when details of FP+ first started making their way out, I do recall them saying something to the effect of having to choose between headliners. I remember people being quite upset about it and the usual folks pulling a "we just don't know...it could change"

Well here we are. I suppose it could change...again.

They have already tested 4 FP+ at MK a lot of people liked that much better. I'm also not saying they will do this at MK and I highly doubt they will.

I had a stick of CareFree gum, but it didn't work. I felt pretty good while I was blowing that bubble, but as soon as the gum lost its flavor, I was back to pondering my mortality.

Then why are you spouting your opinion if this doesn't affect you?

oh no don't get me wrong, I'm not a big fan of the new system, but I'm not going to cry bloody murder until true mechanics of the system are known.
