I've been several different times of year, including some busy ones (third week of July, several different President's Weeks).For those of you that keep saying that you don't need FP to enjoy the parks, when do you go to Disney?
No, that's not true at all. The fact that you can have a perfectly fine time with *no* virtual queueing does not mean that "fastpass touring is gone." You won't get more than three "reserved" opportunities per day, but you *will* get three, and if you are an advance planner you will get three at "more popular" attractions at "better" times. You might have had more in the past, and if so you will have fewer now, but virtual queueing is not dead.I think it is interesting that in discussing FP+ the reaction is to make the case that Fastpasses just aren't needed in order to see the positive side of this program. So whether you are pro, anti or just don't care about FP+, it seems that everyone agrees that this, good or bad, kills fastpass touring in a fashion.
Furthermore, it's not accurate to say that I am "pro" FP+. Instead, I accept it. It doesn't matter how any of us feel about it---it is going to happen, in more or less the form we all expect. If I got to choose just for my own benefit, I would choose the current system, because it better rewards those "in the know" at the expense of those not in the know. But, it's not hard to imagine that that is one of the main reasons Disney is moving to the new system, to level the playing field.
