    Multiple FP+ times available doesn't mean that there are 1000 instances of each time. It could be a single slot. So you could be looking at a total of 10 or 20 available FP+ times for the whole park. It could be more too, but they obscure it so you can not tell unless it becomes unavailable as a selection.

    I was responding to the wait time you posted of "right now".

    Sorry for the confusion.

    According to the screen shots, you checked at around 2 pm and the HM had an available FP for 10:30pm. So only 8 1/2 hours later? Is that supposed to make people happy? I just don't view this as great news.

    It is certainly better than the previous system where all the fp would have been taken by 10 am

    It was 4:55pm.
    In my eyes that isn't horrible.

    Not so sure about that considering I started trying to reserve my FP+s for the day at 7AM.

    PLEASE DON'T TURN THIS INTO ANOTHER ARGUMENT AMONG A FEW POSTERS .

    I'm shouting because apparently they didn't hear me the first time.

    Not really. Since HM didn't have FP's, nor did ISAW, Teacups, POTC, Autopia, Buzz..... Need I go on?

    That's a very good point, one that I had personally forgotten about. Only select attractions had FPs before FP+.

    Yeah, it's easy to forget that you didn't even NEED a fastpass for Haunted Mansion at 10:30 PM!

    I'm sure someone will respond with, "well, you don't need it now there's always SB. But the thing is, SB is longer than it used to be for all of these rides. I used to appreciated the SB lines at WDW, because you kept moving. The wonders of FP+ have created SB lines that never seem to move.

    You're kidding right? :)

    We all choose to live where we want to live to a certain extent anyway. But we can all agree that having to take a flight to Orlando is orders of magnitude harder and more expensive than jumping in the car for an hour.

    I can see a local's point of view, we all want what we want. If I lived that close, I would keep FPs booked just in case and cancel them once I knew my plans for the weekend if I wasn't going

    Yes and no.

    It's a little harder, but I fly a lot so it's really not orders of magnitude harder. Definitely more expensive.

    Yeah, and we do that sometimes. It's hard to know what you're going to want to do 1-4 weeks from now if you're not basing all of your time around that one thing. We only get 7 days so if we book every weekend that doesn't leave any wiggle room for spur of the moment or same week trips. The only way to make that work is to only plan a couple of days far out and then hope what you want that's close to the current day is available when you want it.

    Wait I'm seriously confused now. Getting in your car and driving for an hour is just as hard as flying? Parking, going through security, waiting at the gate, jamming your luggage in, dealing with delays, come on! :)

    Again we all choose where we want to live so that's life. No one promised us a stress-free WDW experience in this life I guess lol

    But if you have seven days you could have three weekends planned at all times plus keep a day available. I guess I'm still stuck on why the wait times were such an issue but it made more sense when you said you didn't have FPs booked

    I don't know where you fly out of, but I fly in and out of MCO and I rarely see a security line that takes more than 5-10 minutes to get through. Also, waiting at a gate is like waiting in a standby line only with somewhere to sit. :joyfull:

    I'm not asking for anything really, I did something else instead. :joyfull:

    I'm focused on the wake up and go to WDW subject. FP+ is incredibly great for every other scenario.

    I'm really confused now. Can I have some of your magical flying powers? ;) The security lines at MCO can be awful. Some of the worst I have seen in the country. I would drive 5 hours in a car rather than take an hour flight anywhere

    Anyway I hear your point you can't just wake up in the morning and get good FPs on a whim especially on busy days anymore. That is gone whether a local or visitor. I would be thrilled to be able to drive to WDW in an hour so I guess I would find a work-around for the lines including booking in advance

    It's no worse at MCO at 2pm on a Saturday than stand by at MK at 2pm on a Saturday. :joyfull:

    It has its moments.
