I have to agree with a lot of the sentiment expressed here.It was worse with the old system with FP+ in place. You had to plan your trip out 6 months in advance with meticulously knowing when to eat, where you had to be, etc 60 days with kids for example.
I kid you not the only aspect of this trip I am stressing about is not finding a reservation for Be our guest late in the evening. The latest I got was 4:50 and I want close to 6:05-6:50, Why? Because time is money at the park especially when dining in can take up two hours so you never know, with no fireworks it’s a no brainer but still it kind of sucks not being able to find the right time, but it’s minor. Low key I have TWO be our guests for the same day one at 12:50 and one at 4:50 which will change once it gets close to the day of traveling because I have to see what will work for me And my kids! Make no mistake going on this trip to disney world is less stress full than it was seven months ago, because of the planing the trip to the T. I can be casual in Disneyland and Universal Studios(both coasts) but not Walt Disney World. I embrace the one park a day, no fast passes so we will see.
While our trip is still about six months out, I don't find myself agonizing over which FPs I need to make and what tiers they're in and what if the only day we can get an ADR at BOG is the only day we can get a FP for (insert whatever ride at another park here). As the vacation planner for a family of 5 (3 teens) ANY vacation can be exhausting, but it becomes even more so when I have to be the Keeper of the Calendar when I'm supposed to be having fun and relaxing.
I know I still will be making ADRs, but as it stands, that's ALL I'll be worrying about, since we'll have already picked our parks in advance and there are currently no FP+.
That said.... I've mentioned before that I hate that RotR BGs are so difficult to get that I have scheduled two days at HS "just in case" we don't get in on our first day. With no PH, if we miss out on a BG on our first day and decide RotR is a must do, we will have to use another ticket to try our luck again for one ride in a park that we already spent a full day in. If we had the option to purchase a one-time PH that would give us the flexibility to experience another park once we (hopefully) got our BG on our second day. We have 6 people going. I just can't see spending an extra $600 for a PH we might use on one day because of ONE ride.
Sorry....that was a little wordy.... *steps off soapbox*
