Of course I have no sources, but I have a very hard time believing that they would remove legacy FP from DAK right before the busy Christmas season. I feel like they would want a chance to test this out and work out the kinks during a slow season...not the busiest week of the year.

What do I get if it is correct?

I know the day guest testing at Epcot is tomorrow for sure since that is on the hub as an advisory. I couldn't find anything in writing in regards to the removal of the machines so just passing it along as what I heard but did not hear directly from the source myself.

OP, I guess I believe you because my MIL works at DAK and was told the same info. As was my DH who works at DHS. I laughed at them both when they first said it, but now I am wondering if the info is actually correct.

I don't doubt people's sources especially CMs, but I would like to think they would just hold out on removing them until after Christmas/NYE...mainly cause that's when my trip is and I still want the option to pull a few legacy FPs here and there haha.

So offsite guests can use FP+ at Epcot tomorrow, but without having had any opportunity to make FP+ reservations in advance? Or, in fact, most of them probably not even knowing anything about FP+?

I pity the CMs at Epcot tomorrow.

No they will select the guests. It is not a free for all type thing. LOL

OK, what I heard is that they borrowed a truck from a guy and he's only gonna let 'em have it next week, so they've gotta get it done while they can.










Oh, wait.

That's my brother-in-law's moving story.

In Epcot if I'm following right, correct? And they will still have legacy FP for those not selected?
