But there was an alternative i.e. TA that could take care of all the pre-planning for people. Are TAs suddenly going to offer purchasing Genie+ for you so you can sleep, schedule the first ILL and/or LL?I much preferred FP+ too but it still caused enough planning to be bothersome for many.
Doing a budget estimate for 2023 Genie+ with ILL purchases would be around $850 for 3 of us over 10 days it we booked the max ILLs/day. I'd rather my card be charged prior to vacation as much as possible.Money is a consideration but not a problem. I don't necessarily want to waste money but also feel that the 15 dollars a day is what we'd spend on a cocktail at WDW. I think we will probably just buy it because time is more of a concern than that amount of money now that the situation has changed. I care more about not needing to wake up at midnight AND 7am to sign up and then get the first rides than I do about the 15 dollars a day (per person 1 realize). Definitely not enamored with this situation (which it sounds like is the consensus)
