I'm guessing our family is done with Disney

We have been giving Disney our vacation dollars for 3+ decades. In those 30+ years and I would say about 35 visits we have NEVER done a single rope drop. We are not rope drop people. Vacation to us is not getting up and running to a park at 6/7 am so we can do what we paid for. Now with this horrible FP+ system, we will be lucky to do one headliner attraction a day. Stand by lines as I predicted are growing and slowing to highest average levels ever. Disney only wants you in their parks to spend money on food and souvenirs(and soon FP's), not to see their attractions. I'm sorry Disney, it was a good run, thanks for the memories

(How soon will someone post ....good, less wait time for me or don't worry, someone will easily take your place?)

It would actually make me very sad if people quit going to Disney because of a new paradigm. However, we went with the new system, and rode all the headliners on a busy week, so it is easy enough to do. Hope many like you at least try it before you decide it doesn't work for you.

How will you know that for sure unless you have tried it? I don't get it, bashing it before you have tried it first hand.

Damn sad to read posts like these. I can totally sympathize with the oper. This fast pass plus is backfiring big time.

Not from me. We are rope droppers- most days- but I'm just not liking FP+. That being said, if I won a vacation, or someone gave me one... or I could go for 50% of current best deal prices... maybe I could learn to deal. However, it's too much money to spend on something I'm already not too happy about.

Next vacation will be a week in Orlando... with a couple of Universal nights, a waterpark, the beach, and probably the MNNSHP and I'm so excited!

How about a million reviews saying how ****ty the new system is? Do you need to try setting yourself on fire to know it is bad. First hand experience is not a necessity in these cases.

Seriously? That's such a bad analogy. Have you tried it? If not, then you have no first hand experience.

Your post made me think of one caveat that I would visit Disney again. For MNSSHP. We don't get caught up in all the character visits, parades or fireworks. We try to catch the fireworks, but we mainly use these parties to ride the attractions with little wait. I do feel I still get more than my money's worth for the halloween and christmas events, and I hope it stays that way. We can arrive at about 4 pm for entry and do almost the entire park before the end of the night(or at least everything that we want to do). The only problem is, these events only take place at the MK so any attractions at the other parks are out.

FP+ actually allowed us to sleep in without having to make rope drop to do our favorite rides. I'm sorry you have decided to bail without even attempting to make it work to your advantage. We certainly did, and loved the new system.

Actually, it's more like a million "I'm not going to try this" posts. The positive reviews get buried by the "never going to try this" posts.

Tried it two weeks ago and it seriously sucks.

The analogy was definitely bad.

Well to be fair if someone does say it, you've been making posts like these for quite a while now.
