I really do not come to that conclusion. I would put Disney's view this way: WDW is viewed by most of its guests as a vacation destination. As such, people spending their vacation and time and money want to be able to do things like sleep in, enjoy their hotel, relax, and come to the parks late if they want - without feeling like they are penalized and cannot get on their favorite rides. Let's give them a system where they can reserve their favorite three rides in advance and be sure to at least get on those rides while on their vacation.. DLR is viewed by most of its guests as a local Southern Californian and Disney historical treasure. We have many people there interested in Annual Passes for which we have to keep the parks fresh and the scenery ever-changing. We also have many people there who decide to visit on a whim, and often for very short visits. Let's give them a FP system where they can make plans at the last minute and just show up and navigate whatever crowds may happen to be there that day. WDW FP+ does have its advantages. I like MP more than FP+ but that is mostly because I tend to rope drop parks and MP gives advantage to the rope drop people. But at WDW I do really love being able to take a day off, show up in the evening to catch a show, and have three FPs for rides at night waiting for me. I only do one or two of these days per trip over 6-9 days, but I like FP+ especially on those days.
