The question is whether that "belief" becomes reality.
If Disney goes forward with the tiers and other apparent FP+ restrictions, it's entirely possible that they will end up issuing fewer FastPasses for Star Tours. As such, more riders will be pulled from the Standby line all day long, making that line move faster than it does today.
Again, I keep circling back to the idea that attraction capacities aren't changing. If I cannot ride as many times as I did in the past under FP+...or have to wait longer for each ride...then it stands to reason that other people are benefitting at my expense.
Given the FREE and OPEN ACCESS of the legacy FP system to ALL GUESTS, I'm not exactly clear on how the new system will lessen my experience while benefitting others.
True, the capacities aren't changing but traffic to some may be changing depending on usage of fp+ and of course what the final product looks like.
