Anyone checked out the new My Disney Experience online? No more regular FP?

Yeah, that's what I though too, but it didnt appear that way.
I agree. It's very confusing. I'm traveling with my niece. When I did the online check-in it went from showing that we were both adults to showing that only my niece has charging privileges and that changes can only be made at the front desk.

Interesting development on the new website: appears that it doesn't recognize double-bookings. I just booked an ADR for 1/23 at 5:30 pm and it allowed me to do so w/o asking me to cancel my existing ADR at the same time. And both ADRs now show up on my itinerary page. Hmmm, opens up the door to playing loose with ADRs again. I'll cancel the conflict, but I find it funny that Disney didn't program a conflict check into the new ADR system.

Did you have the first ADR made pre-new website? Maybe the new site doesn't recognize existing ADRs, but won't let you double-book both from the new site. Just a thought.

I used to be able to make an online ADR and then double-book one on Disney's mobile site (not the app).

I also made a conflicting ADR and it didn't make me cancel the first. The problem is that I tried later to go in and cancel one of them and the website is all glitchy again. None of my reservations show in my account. When I search for them to link them to my account is says that the reservation is located but is already linked to the primary account holder so it won't let me see them or make any changes. Ugh. It's toward the end of my trip so I can always cancel when I get there if the site doesn't get straightened out before then.

Yes, the original ADR was made with the old website. However, I had added all of my ADRs to MDE and, obviously, the system knows I have two ADRs at the same time since my MDE Itinerary lists both of them. I hope Disney catches the problem. It has been a LOT easier making ADRs since the new policy went into place.

this site is awesome. i've never visited, but i l
I made all ADR via phone before the new system was rolled out, but changed most of them this past weekend on the new site. I let me book one conflicting ADR, without making me cancel one, but for the remaining ones, I had to cancel the old conflicting ADR.

I guess the part that blows my mind is that the FastPass+ will only be available for use in one park per day. Is Disney trying to eliminate that easy $300 per family they rip us off for on hoppers? It seems as if they are discouraging hopping with that stipulation.
I actually think this would make me hop more. I already know how to tour a park at Rope Drop, and I don't think I'd give that up. And with the enforcement of FP return times, I find myself using FP rarely..usually only for one attraction per morning, maybe two. So for me, I can see myself using my 3 FPs for the park I'm hopping to in the evening. So I can go to DHS during the morning and ride TSM, RNRC and TOT standby. I can hop to Epcot later that evening, and ride Soarin', TT, and something else...M:S maybe? with my reserved FP+ times.

I agree with demare-- we were going to probably skip DHS this trip, because we didn't want to do the rope drop routine there. But with FP+, I know we'd use ito there in the evening after having a pool day and do the few things we like there.

Just an FYI, in case you weren't aware... they no longer have an actual rope drop at HS. They just open the turnstiles a few minutes early (usually 15 mins early) and let the turnstile act as crowd control. Once you're thru the turnstile, there is no mass of people and you can make your way to TSMM stress free.

It's so much nicer now.

he's right

I'm guessing that those three will all be grouped together, and you will only be able to reserve one or two of them---this is similar to what they did during testing, splitting attractions into groups and forcing you to choose some from each group.
