How exactly are families supposed to take advantage of the wonderful late hours? Even when my older kids manage to stay up past midnight, they are extremely unfun to be around the next day.

I'm relieved we didn't plan an MLK week trip this year, and we traded several days offsite for one day onsite this spring. But I just want to send to everyone dealing with the madness right now. Maybe everything will somehow work out awesome in the end, but that doesn't help those who there now.

Jumping in to echo the long list of disgruntled FP+ users. There 2 weeks ago, stayed at AOA and booked our FP+ choices ahead of time. Absolutely HATE that they categorized the experiences at Epcot and DHS and that you had to choose. When you only get 3 and in one park, that really stinks. NEVER had a problem getting to do everything we wanted, at any time of the year (Florida APs) being smart and using legacy FPs - but now?!? Ugh.

WiFi in the parks didn't work well for either my daughter on her Iphone or me on my Android - kept getting the "There's a glitch in the system" error so changing would have meant standing in those ridiculous FP+ kiosk lines. Nope.

For the first time in 25 years of countless visits, we felt very constricted in our touring.

We both made sure to let WDW know how unhappy we were with the process (not even to mention how many times our MagicBands gave us difficulties) - hopefully they listen to all of us. I have my doubts though...

I had a stick of CareFree gum, but it didn't work. I felt pretty good while I was blowing that bubble, but as soon as the gum lost its flavor, I was back to pondering my mortality.

The slowness of getting FP's at kiosks seems like a huge downer. Paper FP's took only few seconds. Didn't have to sit at the machine to make decisions and wait.
The WiFi is fine but ap itself crawls. Many have said today they couldn't get it to work st all. I have a moto x so fairly new phone and it crawls. Also you can't change just one on ap you have to change all three.

Today was just a fluke... I'm sure those kiosk lines will dissipate as folks become more educated thru osmosis....and people will realize the long FP lines are simply illusions....and that Disney is being generous with 3 FP's to start because per the T&C they could give you less.... Or maybe not.

Tapety tap tap tap..

Well, duh! Of course they don't.

Those long lines are because people thought "FP Here" stood for "Free Pretzels Here"

Well of course there is but you have to choose between the pretzel or the cheese. They're on the same tier.

Pretzels and cheese are both Tier 1 consumables, so you can only pick one. Luckily, Tier 2 has spam, anchovies, vegemite, and warm mayonnaise.

Also I thought once you used your 3 FP per day you could use kiosk or ap to get another but you can not. Only 3 per day and cannot park hop.

We had one prob. We put our ap on it but you can't use for ap discount in stores. Have to have a ap card. Cms in store explained to me the bracelet was a room key not a ticket. They gave me a new ap card though. Said that ap holders will get new bands so on that should work better. Then even more faspasses willbe taken before park on wens. Predict a mess for spring break and summer guests.
The MBA who convinced them to spend money on this should be fired. Fixed a problem that didn't exist by spending a fortune and making a Mess. Universal will benefit nicely.
Exactly my thoughts after my November trip!
