However, the first problem will and I will probably be staying off site my next trip.

If I can not get on the headliners at Disney at least once without a long wait it is just not that attractive to me anymore to go to the parks.

I love Disney, but just yesterday as a family we discussed our next trip in Florida. We all decided it will be a Non-Disney trip. This is after years of back to back trips to our beloved Disney. I am not a doomsayer, but I am educated consumer and if I am not happy with the product I will go elsewhere. I work very hard for my vacation dollars.
Our next trip:
Bonnet Creek spacious rental a third of the cost and better pools. JMHO
SeaWorld
Aquatica
Discovery Cove
Universal for 3 days

Not sure but, maybe Bush Gardens loved this when I was younger, but I am on the fence.

So while I love Disney, I also have options and right to have a differing opinion.

Will not debate, will not even look at this thread again.
no debates here. have a great trip.

Every thread that has a touch of positivity towards FP+ gets high jacked by a FP+ hater. At least the last one is knowledgeable enough to know if they don't like it they can go somewhere else.....until that place develops something to complain about.

As for your question...I do not know. This is the only place/thread I have heard of this. However, there have been a few threads saying if you used all your FP+'s in one park (say in the AM) you could then go to a different park and make FP+ reservations while there. Is it true, who knows...

we were there in late Feb. We are dvc members and have the app and the magic bands etc. We tried to make fastpasses at 2 parks at once. You were only able to get 3 fast passes per day. We were not able to get 3 at MK and then 3 at Hollywood. WE talked to a high ranking official about this by mistake. We were having dinner and she was sitting next to us. She said Hollywood studios just went online with the technology and once all the bugs are worked out. There next project was working on fastpasses for the park hopper people. SO you can get 3 for example in the morning at one park and 3 at night at another. There were glitches in the system and some people were able to book like 3 tier 1 rides while we were only able to choose 2. They everyone was talking about it. There are some glitches that did work out for some.

Not complaining, just commenting, we are staying at OKW 3/28 - 4/2 and we're not DVC members. We have park hopper. When I went online to choose my FP's with FP+, I was hoping I could use, say, 2 FP's at HS then one at MK later the same day, but it won't let me do it. In fact, if I only choose one or two FP's, it gives me other random ones to add up to three.

thats what it's supposed to do its only being rumored right now that it will be able to park hop. Right now you cannot use one here two there you must use all three at one park.

This seems to go so well with FP+...

"Then shalt thou count to three, no more, no less. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out".

And that, my liege, is how we know the world to be banana shaped.

Not exactly accurate....If you didn't use all three at the first park you can choose attractions at your second park when you arrive. You can do this by going to one of the kiosks. Just did it two weeks ago.

It is a lot of changes very quickly to something many thought they were experts on. For the most part no one likes change. My perspective is I am having a love/hate relationship with the bands and FP+. It doesn't make or break my vacation, it is just a fact that I have to deal with and adjust my touring to work with it.
