Can you imagine waiting in that Kiosk line, and then once you get there finding out that the headliners are gone.

and then when you do score a FP+ you have to wait in that return line shown above. Wow.

d-r thank you for posting.

These photos are awful, but I can't turn away. I feel bad for the people in those line.

Using a certain word brings out a special kind of cray-cray

That is probably the longest FP return line I've seen in a long while, if ever.

This suggests to me, as I've long suspected, that it takes longer for each FP holder to scan their band/ticket for the green Mickey than it does or a CM to eyeball a group of 3/4/5/6 or more paper FPs.

I had my reservations about FP+ and now I see they were valid. We've gone to WDW between one and three times per year, but I'm definitely skipping this year, and next year will probably spend more time at Universal and minimal at WDW.

FP+ is just fantastic, that is really what I think. Oh by the way - which one's Pink?

I'm not counting very many smiles in those pictures.

Must be a park full of haters.

Those are some nasty looking lines, d-r. Yikes!!!

Here is the first photo, it was not set up correctly.

I wonder, who profited from this $1,000,000,000 boneheaded blunder?

The only good thing about this weekend chaos is that HOPEFULLY the Disney brass and powers that be will now be able to see how this whole FP+ process is going to shake out!

I imagine the complaints at GS will be piling up!

Such a shame that they "improved" the FP system. MB might be great, but FP+ is anything but. Once again I am so thankful we had our trip this summer. We were there during peak time and had nothing like those lines. I had a feeling it would be bad, but this is just worse than I thought it would be. I certainly will be keeping my fingers crossed that this system is going to improve a lot.

Wait a second-- You're saying those people on the left are in the BTMRR FASTPASS return line??! I don't even know what to say. I've never seen such a long FP line, and we've been there over Thanksgiving and the week before Christmas. I'm hoping they fix this disaster before our next trip.

I know it's early and they could turn this around, but right now FP+ seems to be on it's way to being Disney's "New Coke".

Unless nobody complains about it. Then they'd think it was a success.

I waited in this ridiculous line on Friday. As a former CM and former Imagineering IT gal I find this absolutely counterintuitive.
