Me too, wish I had concentrated on my FP+ instead of worrying about friends who are all going down either today or this weekend.

Why should I have to choose between soarin and tt. My girls don't like mission space so they're the 2 rides for us in epcot. I am paying 7000gbp for this trip anf feel like I am being told how to enjoy it. It feels like a holiday at boot camp not wdw.
I am hoping this changes before may.

What about the many people who stay are there for only 4 days, they will only get to pick one and stand in line for 3 hours during Christmas time. Not very magical

Our DS & DIL will be there 12/20-30. They will NOT be happy about this
With regular FP system was it possible to visit Epot over the Christmas Break and within one day pull FPs for both Soarin and TT? With FP+ why not use RP to ride TT and use FP+ for Soarin? I always assumed to get any value and enjoyable experience at WDW during peak crowds RP had to be part of the strategy?

If you reply, please explain as if to a child as I am NOT tech savvy.

Thanks, everybody.
What phone do you have?

with iphone you press "home" button and "power" button at the same time.
You'll hear a click as if you're taking a picture.
Then your screenshot will be in your Camera/Photo file

Someone else will need to help you with other smartphones.

Good luck.

Depending what your travel plans are, park day you visit, and crowds, choosing between Soarin and TT may result even with FP+. If you visit during peak crowds are you not already using RP to get on one of those rides? If visiting when crowds are less RP and FP+ are less of an issue as you should be able to ride both.

I love walking around WS. But yeah, at this point, with the lack of rides and the focus on festivals to sell food and drink, it's hard to see how Epcot merits a full park admission anymore. At what point does it just become a pretty mall. It should be half of the price of MK at this point IMO.

Everyone participating in FP+ and MDE is supposed to get a survey afterwards (according to a CM on a phone call for FP+ supprt). It's very important that you provide feedback if you want them to make changes to the system.

So, check the email linked to MDE when you get back to make sure you get the survey.

While I know that Disney's main goal is to make money, I also believe that they know that the way to do this is to make people happy. Happier people spend more money. I know I do.

You are all equal and we will dole out 1 ride for each of you. You will be happy. Have a magical day.

I called IT last night because my friend's FP+ was a mess, not only couldn't they fix it (they had no idea what was wrong) but the CM told me not to worry about it, just go and have a good time. Huh?!? I gave my friend a detailed itinerary telling her where to go when, if she just traipsed across the park to use a FP+ I told her to use and they can't get on the ride she is going to be supremely annoyed.

Do you ever get tired of being right all the time?

One thing that is good about this is it's only at Epcot it's not everyday it's only on certain dates of November @Epcyclopedia: Test Dates: November 4, 8, 11, 15, 16, 17, 19, 20, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 29 Dec 1, 5, 6, 7, 9, 10, 12, 16, 22, 23, 24, 25, 27, 28, 29
This is still only a test it can still be changed I just think Disney is weighing all of the options out there.
Wow, it took minutes for that person to copy and past that as their own original stuff! Dates are now closed all Nov and Dec.

LOL..... just be sure you pay your trip in full first. Then leave the details up to the supreme powers.

It just kills me that they think people will pay nearly $100 a day then not really care whether they get to actually DO the things they paid the money to do!

All I know is I hope they keep the 60 days +10 for prebooking and then 45 days to pay up in full. If they mess with that and make you pay before you prebook rides, I'm out I tell you, I'm out!

No but seriously, I'm out.

I sent them an email today to let them know that this is terrible! I've been supportive because it wasn't all too restrictive but this change is over the top!
