Thanks for a great update on how to deal with the Brave New World of FP+ in Epcot. The proposed adult touring plan sounds very convenient.

While the touring plan discussed does give more time, unfortunately that time (and then some) will be consumed waiting for, say, Test Track if you want to do it more than once, since we now have to do it standby. That was the awesome thing about Legacy FP--it allowed us to pull more than 1 FP for an attraction, saving us from having to wait in line if we wanted to do it more than once. I sure hope Disney makes changes to FP+ eventually so we can do that again. Otherwise, it's just taking from the haves (those who knew how to use the FP system and were willing to get to the park early) and giving it to the have-nots.

2 weeks ago I was at EP when they still had Legacy FP and had an unusual experience. We rode Soarin twice (once standby, once Legacy FP) and then went to Test Track. It was 10:05 and our FP window had re-opened. TT FPs were for 10:00-11:00, or 5 minutes earlier than the current time. So I pulled a set of FPs, then tried to pull another set immediately--it worked! I guess I could've sat there pulling TT FPs indefinitely, or at least until the beginning of the FP window caught up with the current time. I thought of it as a nice little farewell gift from Legacy FP in its final days. We'll miss you!
