They can keep fastpass/maxpass and reduce the number of total riders accessing via fastpass/maxpass to about 20%. In my head this is what is happening, but when I'm in the parks, it is clear that it is at least 50/50 fastpass. Groups of 50 just walk straight into space mountain.

I enjoy the idea of cutting out the free fastpasses, while letting the market control demand of maxpass. There would be fewer fastpass users overall, making the park less crowded and the lines move more quickly, while everybody using fastpass would be paying for it.

I agree. Magic Mountain and Knotts make you pay for "fastpasses". Disney should go maxpass only. (and raise the price about 5x) That is what the competition charges.

The former AP in me says “that would be a bummer not to be able to walk into the park at noon and grab a 6pm Fastpass for Space Mountain” but at the same time I know that those types of visits weren’t ideal anyway and that this would be best for the park/ guest experience.

You mean like Magic Kingdom. Get ready for the tacky astroturf lawns and hideous hub.
There's only two small sections in the back of MK's hub which has astroturf and that's because they're sections reserved for the dessert parties and other VIP viewing events.

There are a lot of things to be critical of, but distorting reality for an ideological rallying cry is just Fake News.

Speaking of drinking fountains, I swear Magic Mountain got rid of their fountains in order to get people to buy more soda. You will die without something to drink in that place.

Magic Mountain kind of let them all fall into a state where they were not working last time I was there.

The only place I use a water fountain is the gym when I go like twice a year. Other than that, I think I subconsciously forgot they exist or just don’t seem them anywhere. The only one I can visualize at DL is by the NOS train station... I think.

If you're not bringing in a water bottle and refilling it at the ice cold self serve fountain at Redd Rocket's Pizza Port, you're doing Disneyland wrong.
That's my go-to if I am near. I typically bring in a Brita Sport bottle that has the filter so if I'm in a pinch I can still refill at a water fountain and have it be semi-filtered. Unfortunately, it's not cold that way.

It's getting there. I think Maxpass was the start of an all-paid FastPass system, they just want to ease into it and make sure they get all the kinks taken care of with Maxpass. Once they phase out free FPs they will slowly jack up the price for Maxpass. They just know that if you rip the bandaid off too quickly too many people complain.

We're quickly getting to the point where a majority of people now have smartphones. They could easily take care of people who don't have them by doing what WDW does with the universal kiosks. Have a bank of them in each land. Having to physically go to the attraction to grab a FastPass is such an antiquated system now and machines at every attraction take up space. Just my opinion.

BTW, you missed Universal's express pass in your list. It's pretty pricey too.
