Epcot FP+ tiers gone...for now.

There is another thread that many may miss that started discussing this:

http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=3234333

For now it appears there is a way to get TT and Soarin' fastpasses on the same day. I already had reservations for late March for Soarin', Mission Space and Turtle Talk. I was able to go to MDE and change MS to TT while keeping Soarin'. I was also able to change FP+ reservations at HS so that I had Toy Story, ToT and Rockin Rollercoaster all on the same day.

Currently, you are unable to make initial reservations for 2 tier one rides at Epcot, but you can change existing reservations. Will this last long or is it a glitch? Who knows, but for now, I'm happy to have FP+ reservations for TT and Soarin' on the same day!

It works at DHS as well. FYI.

Same way though. You have to select within the tiers initially, then you can change them.

Here's my Epcot day:

You couldn't do this before- it is a change in the system- meaning it is intentional or a really big sudden glitch. I wouldn't be surprised if you're able to do this in 19 days.

I agree. BUT, why if it's intended, can you not make the selections from the get go?

Maybe they want to try to steer people to other attractions, but then if you are persistent (and know how to do it) you can change it yourself.

Who knows why Disney IT does anything? Maybe it's an oversite, maybe a glitch or maybe it's an attempt to steer traffic to the less popular attractions?

This was my thought too.

What day are you trying for? There's always a chance that day might not have a FPP for the time you are trying to change it to. Try moving Star Tours to another time slot and switching to TSM.
