As are the same amount of people jumping to conclusions and getting themselves so worked up they're ready to cancel everything and forget Disney for a while. It goes both ways. LOL

I'm not saying Disney can do no wrong, but I'm also willing to wait the testing process out while being a part of it at the same time before I make up my mind.

I can see them doing that but isn't that kind of elitist? More for the haves and less for the have nots. That is especially troubling considering every one had the same chance to pull fastpasses under the old system. Sure some got more than others because they learned how to use the system to their advantage, but everyone had the same ability to do just that.

Imagine the long lines if other offsite visitors are worked into this day-of FP+ system. Ugh.

So, how long until Disney requires a credit card hold on FP+ reservations? You know, just like they do for ADRs.

It is NOT a downgrade for everyone. Just because it is for you doesn't mean it is for me. And just because I think it's an upgrade for me doesn't mean it is for you.

I LOVED our FP+ experience this last week. I got to ride TSM for the first time in 5 years. Go me!

I don't think that'll happen IF they stick to a 3 FP+ per day scenario. Problem with ADR's is you can make as many as you want and not show up (well not anymore)..
If there's a 3 limit that's a high commodity.

You don't think that only having access to one headliner via FP+ isn't a downgrade? I admire your positive attitude.

And doesn't Universal's express pass give you FOTL access to each ride only once?? At least that's the way it was at HHN. I don't know.

Universal offers two Express passes to offsite people. One allows one ride and one allows unlimited rides. Of course onsite visitors get the unlimited passes as part of their hotel stay.

The HHN passes only allow access to each attraction once. Considering the crowds, that's probably wise.

I thought I read somewhere that they postponed the CC hold for all ADR reservations?

Let me see if I can find it.....

Nope, can't find it. I was sure I read it somewhere though.

Well I said earlier in the thread, but I don't blame you for not reading all 15 or 16 pages so far, that this new addition kind of stinks. I'm not all rainbows and kittens in spite of what some of you like to think. Of course booking only one headliner instead of 2 or 3 isn't an upgrade.

BUT... the system as a whole, FOR ME, is an upgrade, so far. But I can see where it's not for everyone. See... I can look at the whole picture

But I just have to roll my eyes when I see statements like "This whole thing is a downgrade for everyone". It's just not. But I do get why people are upset.

I'm so confused after reading this thread.

This morning, about 2 hours ago I booked my fastpasses for Jan. 1 and was able to schedule Soarin' and Test Track. I checked 'my reservations' and they are still there.

Why was I able to book both but not everyone can? I'm sorry if it's in this thread somewhere and I missed it...

I'm at work and trying to hide my screen Shhhh, don't tell anyone...

I will be able to ride Soarin twice and TT once w/ waits under twenty minutes and walk-on Maelstrom in the afternoon? On a moderate to busy day, since I can't my teen out of school?

Got it.

Now question... how much money are these said express passes for off site guests? Right now, FP and FP+ are "free" or included with admission.
