I wondered about that, too, and the fact that it doesn't specify anywhere that the FP+ component is only for guests staying at Disney hotels. Of course, they only got some fluff comments from the WDW chairman - no timeline or specifics were actually on the record. Still, it's another piece to add to the FP+ puzzle.missmary said:I thought it was interesting that it says "MyMagic+ will allow users of a new Web site and app — called My Disney Experience — to preselect three FastPasses before they leave home for rides or V.I.P. seating for parades, fireworks and character meet-and-greets."
So now the number is 3 for FP+?
This is not speculation.I read a speculation somewhere that the paper FP machines may not be available to those using Next Gen. That would put a cramp in our touring style because we make good use of FP (we get more than 3 each day) throughout our trip.
That's a good question. Perhaps if you bought hoppers, you would be allowed 3 FPs in a mix-and-match of parks.That big, red band is pretty ugly.
I wonder if this system allows you to park hop? If I want a Fast Pass from Epcot in the morning and MK at night, would that be allowed?
I wonder if the old machines will be in use for off-site guests, or if all will get wristbands?This is not speculation.
The terms and conditions of My Disney Experience state explicitly that if you use FP+, you can not use regular fastpass.
The reason: FP+ requires RFID tickets, but RFID tickets can not be used for regular fastpass.
For now, at least it is one or the other.
All FP+ reservations must be for the same park, on any given day.That's a good question. Perhaps if you bought hoppers, you would be allowed 3 FPs in a mix-and-match of parks.
I would be disappointed as well, if we could not use regular, paper FP.I read a speculation somewhere that the paper FP machines may not be available to those using Next Gen. That would put a cramp in our touring style because we make good use of FP (we get more than 3 each day) throughout our trip.
A person would not be able to make 100 purchases of $49.........because Disney only 'authorizes' a particular amount of spending usage.Just because they require a pin for $50+ purchases, doesn't mean someone can't make 100 $49 purchases with no problem.
I read somewhere that there would be kiosks in the parks for those without smartphones. Whether that is true, I don't know.Pixiedust34 said:I wonder if the old machines will be in use for off-site guests, or if all will get wristbands?
I'm not sure if on-site guests will have perks (perhaps extra FPs?), though it wouldn't surprise me. Rumor has it that they are trimming down free dining (nothing for value stays, quick service for mods and deluxes) and offering FP perks is a way to entice guests to stay onsite when the resort prices keep climbing and promotions such as FD are not as good as they once were.
I also wonder how this would work for those w/o smart phones and for international guests in the parks if they want to change a reservation or FP time.
I don't mind wearing a bracelet, but I do hope it's removable for showering and sleeping.
It'll be interesting to see what develops! We won't be at WDW until Sept., so hopefully by then the system will be up and running well.
