While I am still upset about the recent raise in prices this is the single thing that irritates me the most. They insist that you plan and you still canít get what you want.
And donít forget, after you planned 11 months out they will still spring up charge events on you at the last minute and totally screw your careful planning. Iím looking at you, TOWL...

Yep - it is ridiculous.

They've added 60 days for a number of offsite resorts and the paid option for Concierge guests. And you know the concierge guests aren't adding it to be able to book the Frozen sing along or Dinosaur or POTC.

Do some checking now and then though - FP's do pop up and sometimes it seems like they load more. I believe it's been related that they may hold some back for day of.

Don't cross DL off because of WDW's stupid system. DL thankfully doesn't do that and it's FP's a breath of fresh air. But traveling from SF to LA is a bit of a trip though there are lots of beautiful spots in between.

Happened to us, too, in April. The kids did rope drop and stood in line but never could get on 7DMT without standing in line in excess of an hour. I would love if the would give DVC members 3 one time use, anytime, anywhere FP+ for each member of their party for length of stay. I know Iím dreaming!

It was mentioned earlier, but I think the DS area hotels having access has had a significant impact. I could see 45 day I'd they wanted to do something, but the same as onsite? Would love to know what those hotels are paying them.

Ikr? That was always a huge selling point for on-site properties, access to perks that off-site guests didnít get. Iím sure there is a large amount of money changing hands.

Just as with Alien Swirling Saucers, either someone was not considering the acronym when naming the attraction, or someone was!
