I find the resorts are a destination themselves and it takes several days to figure them out so I stay at only one each trip. I stay at a different resort each visit and I was fortunate enough to go to WDW 10 times last year, 3 times so far this year. That is how I resort hop.
i wish i can do a resort hopping, but i hate the hassle of unpacking/repacking! outside disney, it is kinda fun IF you ARE trying to earn those "stay" points towards Hotel reward program (e.g. Hilton HHonors) - otilegna  1569.1 #69 6:25PM
and that is an awesome picture! is that EXP626? and definitely you are the Maleficent :) - otilegna  1569.1 #69 6:27PM
I would have done it this last trip (Pop to AoA) but would have lost our Spring discount if we switched; it counted as two different resort ressies and the second would have been past the date to qualify, so we just extended our ressie at Pop. - mrsincredible  733.5 #5 9:57PM

You can only get 3 FP per day, at one park. You cannot nor will you be able to 3 FP at MK then hop to Epcot and 3 more. You can park hop just expect to get additional FP. The days of getting 7 or 8 FP per day are gone for now. At Epcot you can get Soarin or TT, not both unless you go 2 days.
I think Maggie said that last year, once she used one She could go back into my Disney experience and apply for Another. - mmddgp  355.5 #18 10:55PM
FP machines are gone. Supposedly you get 3 FP for 1 Park per day. - DizneyGirl  528.0 #9 10:55PM
I'm staying on property so I will have magic bands and can schedule beforehand. Is 30 days out correct for when u can choose your FP's? - lghr  28.2 #121 11:18PM

I tend to go with flow as well and not to make plans, dining or FP. I did use FP+ for some attractions on my last two visits this year. Things like Toy Story you really will need FP if you plan to ride. Since you are DL expert not sure things like that are a high priority for you. I go to WDW several times a year and do not use stand-by lines longer than 20 so I spend a lot time enjoying other offerings. Think about attractions DL does not have and use FP for those. At Epcot you will be limited "E ticket" FP's and all parks have 3 FP per day limit. Happy planning!
This was one of my issues , my husband and never plan other than dining , so when we did the FP+ it was a little much for us , we didn't like to have so many restrictions in a day, we like to go with flow , and this was just not working for us, you can change times day of but they will probably be very limited , when picking in advance you are only given certain times you don't just choose what time you would like. Depending really on when you go crowd and wait times vary, usually the longest wait times are for Toy story mania & that's every time , soarin always but you have those in DL , we aren't bothering with FP anymore - tracsant  878.3 #2 7:47PM
A Fellow MW with more real-time experience may have better input. We are coming in May and have been reading a lot about FP+. (you can search fast pass plus on here too) It looks like you can still reserve the day of your visit but less options/fewer times. So it depends on how important it is for you to ride specific rides. What say you, fellow MWers? - ColoradoSoprano  29.1 #5108 7:26PM
We really liked the magic bands. We planned on 1 park each day based on hours and then planned dining accordingly. When we were there last November we got fast passes each day figuring if we used them great and if not that was ok too. When we visited the previous year in September they didn't have fast pass+ yet but the crowds were so low we didn't even use regular fast passes. - MicheyMouse  316.2 #694 10:23PM
I don't think it's a big issue to not plan out rides ahead of time...but there are certain faves and must-do's that u simply can't miss out on...lol...some of them do require the fast passes because they're so popular so in that case, those are important to plan out and get times for early on in the day if possible. Other ones are easier to wing it for, then again it also depends on how busy the parks are, the weather, etc....because a rainstorm could definitely impact a not-so-popular ride suddenly becoming flooded with an increased wait time for example...lol...so I guess the best advice is to plan ahead for the major popular rides in terms of fast passes and leave enough time during the day to do the things u want and that u know are of interest to u...we usually wing it in that sense by going from one themed-land to another and doing the attractions at each one that we like....all depends...hope that helps somewhat:) - mickeynme  149.6 #46 1:48PM

I like Beach Club and Yacht because of the proximity to Epcot, my favorite park. I have stayed at both only once. I love Poly and have stayed there four times but with all the construction I will avoid staying there for now.
Never stayed at Poly but I am absolutely in love with both Yacht and Beach Club, have stayed at yacht multiple times and BC once , they are both beautiful and relaxing , and the lobby's smell amazing , yacht is a bit more quiet but BC isn't too loud either, both have great dining but yacht doesn't have a QS it's at BC , awesome pool and perfect locations with so much to do , rms are bright and beautiful , I love that BC rms have a cottage feel to it with the way their glass doors are , not the regular sliding ones, I like poly and will stay at some point but I personally will always pick Yacht or BC first, let me know if you need to know anything specific - tracsant  878.3 #2 4:41PM

Which did you decide? - 5disneylovers  719.3 #6 7:38PM
We love the BC, the transportation was the #1 factor one our first trip. Bus & Boat at the resort, walking distance to Monorail at Epcot. The 3 acre sand bottom pool that is shared by BC & YC is awesome. We have stayed at the BC 3 times, always a great experience. - TheDad  63.5 #78 8:55PM

I have used Fast Passes the past 3 days with no issues. I did my Fast Passes on my computer about an hour before getting to the parks each day. A little slow with bottlenecks at entrance but otherwise seems alright to me.
I had no problems when I used it last Nov, in fact, as a planner I loved FP+!!! Just thought I'd throw that out there so the newbies don't only here the negative. - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  747.5 #4 5:27PM

We didn't have any issues in Oct with FP's, room key or park tickets all being loaded on the bands. The only thing we had an issue with was our refillable mugs expiring a day too early. - mrsincredible  733.5 #5 1:26AM

Yes, what Ally said. I did both Fast Pass Plus and the paper Fast Passes with the plastic card I received at check in this past week.
As of now while you are testing you get both. From what I understand the paper FP's will go away once FP+ is fully rolled out. - Andrea84  601.3 #7 7:53PM
From what I read on the website, you can because it's still in the testing phase. They haven't officially announced that they are out yet! - rlpologal89  9.4 #239 10:21AM

I take 6 to 8 solo trips a year and love it. I spend most of my time at Epcot (love gardens) and AK (animal lover) just walking a taking it all and a little people watching along the way, maybe a fast pass or two. I don't wait in long lines for attractions. You see things solo, taking your time, that you might miss on a family trip.
I would recommend spending a LOT of time in Epcot. You can take your time shopping and eating around the world. If it's a hot day, the Kaki Gori is refreshing in Japan! - goofygal  5694.9 #9 9:50AM
