    Yes, we always stay onsite. I probably wouldn't be a fan of the new system if we didn't stay onsite.

    Yup! Just made my FP+ picks for my October trip yesterday!! The one hour window can be a pain to work around, but being set with some things 60 days before I arrive is well worth it to me.

    We stay onsite as well. I realize staying offsite and not getting that 60 day head start is a different story. But, we just can't imagine a visit not being onsite. I did it once years ago with my mom and sister. Very nice hotel, but it took away the immersion that we value so much. The trip lost the overall Disney feel that we look for.

    I find it more stressful to stay offsite. They have priced an onsite visit out of a lot of people’s budgets though.

    We stay onsite and I am up early to make everyone's fast pass. We go with my son and his family once a year. I am the planner and I get stressed over the entire thing! We always stay Club Level, but I like making sure everything is done right. Well, this year they started something new for CL guests! You can pay an extra fee for an additional 3 fast passes per guests per day and these can be made 90 days in advance!!! So, my son gets the brilliant idea to do this. I told him, to go right ahead and pay the money if he wants to for his family, but my husband and I would not be doing it. He was able to have Signature Services book all his Fast Passes at 90 days for the 5 of them and they were able to get everything they wanted at the times they wanted. When my 60 days came I booked a couple things to do with them and managed to get the same times as them.

    I think we have learned a lesson with our experience with the 60 (+10) day booking window. Next trip we will book the most important FP+ attractions at the END of our trip. Use the beginning of it for things like golf, Disney Springs, resort hopping etc. We will have a better selection of available times the farther out we book. Thing is, we are now contributing to the very issue (see original post) that irks me the most. FP+ seems to be putting guests in a competition against each other. Feels a bit like 'Lord of the Flies'

    This has always been my procedure...Easiest to get 'hard to secure' FP+ options closer to the end of my trips. I start with my lsat day and work backward. Sometimes I can get 'the good ones' two or three times and release what I don't need once everything is booked.

    This has been my strategy since FP+ started. We still do parks at the beginning of our trip, but just book the most difficult attractions towards the end of the trip first. This is just one of the ways hopping comes in handy for us. We can plan AK as our last park day and book FOP for that day first, then fill in the rest of our days next. In the event we can also pick up a FOP FP on a different day I can either keep the FP for FOP for both days and just hop to another park after we ride it, or I can cancel the FP for our last day.
