In general I like being able to get a FastPass ahead of time (staying on property). This could be useful (though I have not done it yet) for park hopping, getting FastPass+ for the afternoon park. Mind you, it is not all milk and honey. I was shocked by a long line at Space Ship Earth when last in Epcot. (It was MLK weekend but still.) Attraction tiering is also pain, especially in DHS.

At the end of the episode Scopa asked if there were any changes in the near future. Based on a survey I received last week, it seems Disney is considering a fairly significant change to FP+.

The survey gave 3 different options for a FP+ change and asked several questions about them, including which I preferred. Essentially, the 3 options were:

1. Guests could choose a 4th FP+ after 1:00 pm and continue getting another after that 4th FP+ was used;
2. Guests could choose a 4th FP+ after the 1st FP+ was used and continue getting another FP+ as a FP+ was used;
3. Guests could choose a 4th FP+ after all FP+ had been used and continue getting another FP+.

So it seems Disney recognizes that only 3 is not enough (especially in the Magic Kingdom) and is looking for ways to increase that number.

I think Disney needs to do a better job informing guests how FASTPASS+ works. Based on how many people did not know how legacy FP worked (Or even knew it existed), they can't assume the concept of FASTPASS+ is universally understood.

I know two families that were given bad info, or little info from Disney, regarding FASTPASS+. Now, this is only one side of the story and perhaps the lack of familiarity with Disney World was a factor in the two issues, but neither of these families are idiots.
