    Default Anyone there this week?

    Curious to know how the crowds are this week - the start of Spring Break. With the roll out of the new FP+ during the busy seasonwas wondering how it was affecting any of the touring...better? worse?

    We are going next week, and leave this Friday. I have been watching the standby times on my iphone app when I get a chance. The standby times don't appear to be longer than they normally are this time of year.

    So it appears that FP+ is having little effect on the standby times! now that it has been fully implemented.
    First Trip *:
    Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground - June, 1974

    Last Trip *:
    Port Orleans/Saratoga Springs - March, 2017

    Next Trip *:
    Bay Lake Tower - March, 2018

    And about 40 more in between....

    Don't wanna derail the thread, but "fully implemented" is not true.

    Yes, everyone has access to FP+ and they got rid of the loophole of doubling up once legacy FP went away. That was a major cause of long lines.

    However, AP and off site guests are certainly still "testing" this system and until Disney officially announces the roll-out, expect changes (seemingly for the better).

    Disney seems to be taking it easy, once step at a time in the most basic form. Once every guest has the ability to book FP+ in advance for 3 per day per park, I think you'll see some additional tweaking.

    Just heard from a friend of mine who was there last week, when this question was posted. She said the FP+ system worked flawlessly and she loved it. One of their rides was temporarily closed at their FP time. They were emailed as soon as it was up, and offered some suggested times to reschedule their FP+. They were pleased and impressed.

    Note to self: Keep phone charged and check email in case anything changes.
