I'm curious to hear how this will work. I'm not sure how I feel about the pre-arrival planning but I'm keeping an open mind about it. I just think there are too many variables that could mess up your FP times when you plan that far out.
This concept actually gives me a little stress. While I love planning our parks and dining far in advance, I'm not so sure I relish the idea of planning each attraction. I guess we'll see how it goes!
I'm with you. It is hard enough to plan which parks on which days, then plan ADRs around that. I can see maybe planning FP's for some of the major rides, but we just don't plan our trips to that degree. For those that do, this would be great. For us, not so much.
At first glance, this doesn't sound like a good deal to me. I love planning my Disney trips but this is too much. It gets to planning your days down to the hour and doesn't leave a lot of room for spontaneity. I hope they have limits to the number of passes each person can get ahead of time and leave the ability for people to still get fast passes in the parks. I'm not going to make an absolute judgement about it yet since we don't know the details.
Honestly, as someone who has never been able to get a TSMM FastPass, I’d be the happiest person on Earth if this happens. At California Adventure they don’t even offer FP for this attraction, so I have no choice but to stand in a loooong queue when I’m there (about twice a month). It’d be so nice to be able to hop on this ride when we go to DHS without a long wait.
I’m not a meticulous planner but I’d be willing to plan in more detail if it meant I’d be able to spend more time enjoying the attractions and less time standing in slow moving lines.
