News FPs cancelled when Hotel room cancelled

Reportedly starting 2/4 when you cancel your WDW hotel room your fastpasses will also be cancelled so those that made throwaway room reservations wouldn't be able to do so anymore.

Also you are said to have 2 days of grace period. So if you rebook you would still have the fastpasses rather than them cancelling immediately.

Had no idea this was a thing. So, people make a resort reservation, set their fast passes when their window opens, the cancel the room, stay offsite and get to keep their fast passes even thought they are no longer linked to a valid reservation?
Yep, its a huge thing. People have been doing it since the 60-day window thing started in order to get a jump on the 30 day window.

There does need to be more info out about this though. Is this only if you cancel before 30 days? After 30 days does it matter if they are cancelled or not? What about those who just change which hotel they are staying at? Its a bit vague at the moment.

That is great. Next step will be to figure out how to counteract the ones that book a long trip (so their 60 day window opens earlier), make FPs, and then trim down the trip to the days they are really going.
They already have some practices in place for this.

Off-site has a limited part to do with it, since many Disney Springs resorts now get a 60-day window for FP+...

That penalizes the guest who was going to rebook. If I am going to change my hotel why should I have to lose all of my FP's? People change/rebook all the time especially when different discounts come out.
What would make sense is if there was a grace period - i.e. the FPs disappear if there's no reservation attached for 24 hours. But if you rebook and your FPs overlap, then you're OK.

Still won't solve the throwaway campground issue...

You could still pay for a room you aren’t using. Just don’t cancel it. Just pay for a few days.

I’m surprised they wouldn’t roll that in with this. If you aren’t staying on site a given evening, you shouldn’t have the on-site perks.
Sure - but some people book a trip, let's say April 1 to 14, but only intend to stay from April 7 to 14. So their FP window opens April 1, they get a better shot at FoP and SDD than if they had their actual booking. A few weeks after FP selection, they modify their reservation to April 7-14. Their FPs are still only valid for the days they are there, but....
