What a bunch of complainers, whiners, and negative Nancy's here! FP+ is going to be fabulous and pink, with unicorns and rainbows. I know this for a fact, and everyone who disagrees doesn't know what they're talking about and is just speculating!

That's annoying because I was told yesterday by a FP+ person that I could still get FP- as well. "It is just a test", she said.

How would the cast member know if you have FP+ reservations?

The wearing of a magic band doesn't indicate that.

That's a nice thought. We can dream.

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.

Okay, well how would you feel if the folks staying at GF got two ride all of the headliners (they could book three of whatever) but the folks staying at Pop only got one? That's where this is headed. Also, however you want to rationalize it, it doesn't change the fact that this is a downgrade for everyone.
I agree. And to go you one better, take a look at the threads. People are asking about FP+ for all the rides that never had FP before and getting negative responses. No preferred seating for Fantasmic w/o dining, not the best spot for Wishes/MSEP or don't bother to use your FP+ on Ariel, no preferred seating for Lion King. All of these attractions that Disney is trying to fill by spreading out FP+, just by word of mouth, are going to be no go's. Sure, some first timers are going to use their FP+ on something they really don't need to, but the people who know and plan are going to go for the headliners. Aaaannnnddd, we're right back where we started.

(Playing devils advocate here)

Having the bands means you (theoretically) had the opportunity to make FP+ reservations ahead of time and you could still make same day reservations at one of the kiosks.

Of course you can give feedback, and as a repeat visitor to WDW your feedback is important, however, you are biased. Your bias is skewed toward someone who doesn't use FP normally, but it is still biased, don't fool yourself.

BTW, is anyone having problems with page 12 of this thread. I'm getting malware warnings and it won't load.
first, yes I got the malware warning too.

next, but we don't know that, which has been my point all along.. why fret over something we as of now, today, this second, we know nothing about?

finally, No, I'm not biased at all, the fact that I don't use them doesn't mean I don't advocate them. It's just a matter of it's not a factor that we must use them.

What if you chose not to test you get them anyway for the rest of the MB options

I really just posted that for a heads up obviously if you had no idea that was going to happen it would be too late to do anything about it. I can't send anyone else it will be me and DS with special needs by ourselves next week.

Try again later, it may reappear.

Well if it is in pink it must be true. Quick, start a thread about the complainers who are complaining about the complainers.

Put another way, how would you fill in these blanks:

I would enjoy wandering the World Showcase. The question is, what would my family pay over four hundred dollars for.

I haven't actually been to Epcot in recent years without riding Soarin at least twice (I always end up with a bottom corner on the first try) and Test Track at least once. Plus a FP for Maelstrom because who wants to wait more than five minutes for that. And no, I didn't feel guilty because I got my entire family to the park entrance at 8:30 a.m.
