Nobody's forcing you to take part of the test.. With these restrictions regular FP people will have better chances to do their "thing" now..
To some of the people who are upset, this portends a future of no regular fast pass and a possibility of only one headliner with FP+.

NO it wont. The problem is they do not have enough FP+ to go around to all the people getting FP+ for Soarin' and TT.

Keep in mind, I'm withholding my opinion until I return from our Thanksgiving trip (same time you'll be there).

And I'm not doubting that either. I don't think all change is good either. But I do give it a chance before I attack it right from the get go. Which is what has been happening on the DIS since the announcement and implementation of the new FP+

So eventually you will have 1 FP for the e-ticket/headliner and everyone will have to wait in long lines over the others.

Some people are ok with that, some are not.

The ones who are not should give Disney feedback so they know. Whether Disney do anything with the complaints is something else. They might care, they might not.
But at least people should speak up.
Where have they said that this will be the norm? They are testing the abilities of the system. Just because they are doing a test of operations doesn't mean this will be the way it is once it's released.

This might be the case for over the holidays, which could be why they are limiting it, but last week on a Saturday, there were plenty of TT and Soarin' FPs in the morning the day of. I changed our times and rescheduled completely and this was at like 11 or 12 in the afternoon. Plenty available. So I don't think your statement is entirely accurate.

Why would Disney want to free up FP- there really is no point. I don't think you need info to realize this FP+ is the thing of the future and they are working towards that.

And as of now, you can still do that. You an schedule a FP+ and you can pull paper FPs for the others if you get there at RD.

You are misreading.. I don't think they are intentionally freeing up FP-, I'm saying its a result of the upcoming test...

It was....having to book FP+ and also be there for rope drop to get on rides would be double disney torture.

We just got back but has anyone effected by this (during your travel window) called for an explanation?

I think KTP said it is through the end of Dec, and maybe someone else said it showed through 1/5/2014. Is that just how far out you can make your FP+ ressies? Just never paid attention if it is 60 days or what.

It's definitely a result. Whether it's intended (which I agree it is) or not is irrelevant.
