I doubt many people would jump on and select only one, that would be like only eating one Lays potato chip. And the vast majority of people will select the major headliners. I realize that not everybody wants those rides, but the majority will.

I've already been doing it for a while and it isn't pretty.
Great point (although we always spend a full day anyway).

The itinerary feature on the app is deceptively good at this.

But, you can only fool them once with the old Stave Church trick.
Let's see... my headliner choices are Soarin', Stave Church, or priority viewing of the miniature Trains in Germany.

Priority viewing of the miniature trains in Germany ? One would hope this attraction, if it is one, will be completely revamped and made to be something to see other than a cute pass by stop and look while walking through the area.

Don't feel sorry, FP+ will allow our continued relaxed approach to the world and all it's warm sunny Holiday Glory, and now allow access to FP's, while not necessary-we never had before.

Celebrating-most definitely not gloating.

That makes no sense, most of the people there now choose their FP+ before the tiers were instituted so how would they know if people are going to complain? Not to mention that fact that as of right now you can still pull fastpasses for the other headliners so it it doesn't affect people as much as it will in the future.

I was wondering if anyone would pick up on the reference to Rush, Awesome

I can see they will have confused first time guests wandering around the parks. I think this benefits frequent visitors who understand the system and the lay out of the parks the most.

This might be the case I think until they fully roll out. Because I think once they do they will advertise the heck out of it.

Speaking of big changes to FP+, here's a report from someone who was able to get FP+s in two different parks yesterday --

That makes sense to me...they have to give the prebookers a chance to book same-day too, plus its seems like a real-time system.

Anyway, good news! Although what will be left is always the question.

captain eo is horrible I heard they used it at Guantanamo Bay to try to get prisoners to talk

You guys have got to stop saying how bad Captain EO is. We have had some of our biggest laughs in that show. We love to crowd watch people as they "try" to dance to the songs or sing along. One year we saw a lady actually start crying during it. It's a blast (as long as you're not watching the movie).

Yeah, but those are people that would never have bothered to even get a FP before (or wouldn't have known about it) so they are happy with anything.

I agree, like you-Disney probably recognizes there are tons of new happy guests with this system.
