Exclamation I hate this new Disney Tech - I've only been able to make exactly 1 FP for a two week vacation

Disney knows people get up early/get online early and both the website and app are not working properly. In the last 10 minutes, I've only been able to make 1 FP for our entire two week vacation - and it's not anywhere close to the time I even wanted . Both things keep telling me something went wrong with the page or FP distribution has "concluded" for the entire day at every single park!! I work both jobs today and will have pretty much no time to do this later so I have to say, I am not happy at all about this.

I hate it when the technology fails, hope you can get it to work and get the fast passes you want.

Aww. I'm sorry. That stinks. I had trouble on my FP day too with errors but I had the time to keep at it. I got it all done in an hour or so. Hope you're able to get more FP before having to go to work.

I feel for you. I had issues like you are describing for the first 5-10 minutes yesterday. Then things finally started to work. I was then able to get FP for all of my trip except for the last 2 on the last day of my 14 day trip. That is when the system completely crashed and kicked me out. I could not log in through the website or app for about 4 hours to complete the last 2.

I will say I was surprised that there were no FOP fastpasses available for the first day and then very limited my second day at AK. After that, I got everything I wanted. I say surprised because I had not issues with getting FOP over all 3 of my AK days during spring break.

One thing I did notice. Even at 60+12 days, I was only able to get either Slinky dog or alien saucers at 8:30 starting time. Midway Mania had 8 AM available. Makes me think that maybe they are not allowing FP before 8:30 for the other two? But maybe, there were enough people taking long enough vacations to have started booking that far out already. Oh well. I am happy with my selections.

Good luck.

Our FP day was Sunday and we had difficulties as well. It took me about 40 minutes to get all my FP+ reservations for the week. We had the same trouble as you.

I had no problem with my Fastpasses today, I got everything I wanted. Did you get yours finally?

UPDATE

So I was finally able to make my FP and I couldn't get one for FOP when I wanted so I took one for the River Journey instead. MK and Epcot I was able to get either the exact times I wanted or fairly close. The Studios I couldn't exactly get the time I wanted for the Slinky Coaster but with minimal rearranging (and I do mean minimal) the time was doable. When I got home from the first job and before I went to the 2nd job, I told Lenny and Abby what I could get and what I would have to do to get a FOP FP instead (pretty much rearrange my whole AK day) and Lenny left it up to me to decide. Abby helped me out so I changed up our plans to get the first available FP for our AK day - 2:25 in the afternoon. At least we'll be on the "right" side of the park for our 3:50 dinner so I guess there's one thing going for changing it up. I had to change my other two for the park as well. One was a time change and the last one I changed both the attraction and the time.

Phew! I did have to switch one AK day with an Epcot day to get FOP also, but it was fine. Iím really happy that it all worked out for you guys! Youíre one step closer to your trip!! Congrats!
