This statement makes me think that off site guests will be able to use the service but just not ahead of time so they would do it when they arrived at the park.
Not completely. Its doesn't say they have an exclusive benefit to pick early.

There also used to be a statement (now made clearer) talking about how On site guests got complimentary transportation. Some took that to mean off site guest were not allowed to use Disney transportation but we all know Off site guests also got the same transportation.

Is Disney kidding me?
It's not because you're staying at Pop. This is tier plan for all of there resorts, and ultimately removing legacy FP paper tickets entirely. Pop is the first resort to get this test, but certainly won't be the last. I imagine you'll be surveyed on your experience with this development, where you can voice your opinion. In the future id imagine you will be able to use MDE for more than 3 FP+ a day, but still on a tier system of some sort, allowing for hoppers to book at two or more parks if they wanted to. If you, or anyone else gets surveyed for MDE and you want more than 3 FP+ per day, make sure you tell them. See how your vacation goes and give them honest feedback. They will appreciate it and do what they can to improve the next experience.

Was Pop one of the first resorts that started testing and started rolling out MBs and FP+?

I think it was. One of my daughters stayed there in August and she participated in the test.

But while FP+ is great in addition to legacy FP, it's not ready to be a complete replacement. I was really thinking that they'd fix the "one park per day" thing, as well as increase the number of FP+ per day before taking legacy FP options away. Guess not. Yikes!
What you see as a glitch, Disney sees as a feature.

I believe so. Sounds like they're coming full circle with round 2 of the testing.

We're pretty nonplussed about all of this but I understand the frustration.

But for those going to Pop in November and only having access to 3 FP+ for one park per day, will put them at a big disadvantage to other visitors. I know this is part of the testing and in time all resorts and visitors may have same restrictions, but for those in Pop in November are getting shafted.

Even though it seemed pretty clear to most (like you), there have been many responses in the many FP+ threads by people who said they doubted FP- would ever truly go away. IMHO it was wishful thinking at best.

Well, you could switch it around and say since Pop started the FP+ process, they had extra access in the beginning so everyone else got the shaft?

Well, yeah, I know they mean it to be like that, so it's not a glitch. But I definitely consider it a flaw! I wonder if people are actually filling out the feedback surveys after testing MM+...

Why isn't anyone questioning this statement? This person has only been on the Dis since September and has not come back to join the discussion. Maybe it's not true?

It's being reported on easywdw too, and I don't think he would post that if he didn't think it was reliable.
