My sense is that if you arrive early, there will still be ample opportunity to get FPs for all attractions. But the supply may be exhausted earlier in the day due to the advance reservations.

But even that may not come to pass. Disney can tinker with the number of total FPs issued. If they want to offer 10% more, 25% more or 50% more FPs for any given attraction than they do today, they can. Only real impact will be slower-moving standby lines.
We are going in the beginning of May, so it's not a high peak time!

As of 3 days ago (when we left wdw) this wasn't the case. In fact I asked about using the pin and was told it needed a $50. minimum.

Pretty sure if its on the wrist band it'll have Disney's own unique encryption, meaning it'll be your card number but its masked into Disney's system which would require the reader to have the code or for the person skimming to know it or be able to crack it (in which case they work for Disney or are really good with computers and sequencing).

The pin code mandate for all transactions went into effect on January 8.
