This is what I got from my email inquiry about the fast passes. "As of January 23rd all parks will be using FastPass®+ exclusively. However, at this time only guests staying at a Walt Disney World® resort will be using MagicBand®s where they can make FastPass®+ selections in advance. Our guests staying off Disney property will be given FastPass®+ cards once in the park, then they can go to one of our FastPass®+ kiosks to make their selections for the entire day. Each party member will scan their card or MagicBand® on the kiosk and schedule FastPass®+ together. " I don't know why they would want to do this. I hated the FP+ system from using it the most recent time. The person that responded didn't say if you are still stuck with the 3 per day limit that doesn't allow park hopping. Which is one major reason why I didn't like the system. I was planning on going back in 3 years, I think we will go visit either Tokyo Disney, or Disney Paris instead.

Not happy with the new magic band or scheduling fast passes in advance but will have to wait and see what happens in July. - Pooh147856  355.0 #24 4:52PM
I'm sure worried about going back to WDW with all this change. It seems to be taking the fun out of a relaxing vacation. And sounds like we will be limited to one park a day as far as fast passes go. We r not planners, but sounds like we may become one. U have to choose where and when u will be all day before U even get to a park. Sounds stressful to me. I hope it all works out to be better than it sounds!! - happygma2  58.3 #97 8:24PM
Same here, only thing I do is dining reservations. Having to plan the FPs was a pain. Being able to use our key cards to get FPs, at more then one park was just nicer. - Lelundrial  656.3 #304 11:10PM
Sorry. In not sure how to feel but I will have no choice but toguve it ago in august. Force change is never welcome. It is what it is ! - 5disneylovers  1152.4 #6 8:37PM
I was certainly dreading the magic bands and FP+, but we ended up liking the whole thing. If we wanted to change where we were going for the day, I could go on my computer or phone on My Disney Experience and change our FP+ for the day. We didn't really find it any worse than planning out our meals ahead of time. - ally  509.0 #17 7:25AM
My hubby just called WDW questioning hopping between parks. Once your 3 FP are gone you are done with them for the day. So if u use urs at MK in the morning and have a dinning res at HS for dinner, u can't get anymore FP. We hop around a lot so it will limit us. So why buy a hopper pass? It limits u pretty much to one park a day which means a whole lot less seen. - happygma2  58.3 #97 9:30AM
I think it stinks not to be able to hop to another park and use some fast passes there. Like you said, why even buy a hopper?? I may be finished with WDW. I just can't understand why they would do this. AND three a day isn't enough for any park for a whole day !! I use probably 10 or more a day. - lghr  48.8 #108 10:25AM
I agree! Very limiting! We always use way more FP too. I don't want to sell our DVC because there's always Hawaii!! - happygma2  58.3 #97 10:35AM
I am wondering what kind of research, if any, was done for them to come up with the 3 one park per day. If they sent an employee out and had that person park hop like a regular guest. They would easily find out that you can get twice that number at two different parks. - Lelundrial  656.3 #304 1:45PM
Why worry about fast pass+ just check the waiting times & use the single rider line. Things can always change based on guests complaints. Just have fun. - torino06  10.7 #10577 10:36PM
I only recall seeing single rider for one ride while we were there. I have stayed of property before. I don't find it fun being restricted to 3 per park, per day. Then having to plan out the rides. Takes out the fun of a vacation. - Lelundrial  656.3 #304 10:20AM
