I do believe it is just for training of CMs and not that it is live. If it is live more than 100 guests would be using it. Just a guess based on some scheduled training going on for CMs in GR and attractions.

Well, crap! We leave 2 weeks from Sunday. What is this going to mean for us? How quickly is this rollout going to go? Will we still be able to use regular fastpass or are we ging to be forced into fastpass plus?

It will be very slow right now. The regular FP system will still be in use for some time now.

Well I hope it's up and running when we go at the end of August, especially if we can use both FP systems. There certanly some days when we are going to the water parks in the day and one of parks with late evening hours so it would be great to be able to book fp for the evening! Guess we'll see what happens but if this is true they must be getting closer to going live.

Wait wait wait...the regular FREE FPs are going to be phased out?? I thought the FP+ was supposed to be an optional supplement for people who want to pay extra for it, and the regular FPs were still going to be available to the rest of us who aren't interested??

I'll admit I haven't kept up with all of the news, very disappointed if this is the case

No, you thought wrong. FP+ will be free, and eventually it will replace old FP.

Attractions CM's are required to have the training before being able to work. Each week will include more people.

Ok if this is true, then I'm hoping some DIS members will be part of the "training/test/rollout/whatever" and report back!

Ah. I was only going based off scheduled training I have seen from my other CM friends. I'm not at a FP+ attraction so we don't know how it will affect us. We do need swipe cards so once the bands roll out we will have to adapt.

Definitely agreeing here!! I have been following these topics like crazy for these updates and this has been my worst fear as we leave in 6 days!!! Hopefully we will hear more about what is going on before then!

Is this going to be available to everyone or only on property guests? I surely hope us offsiters will not be losing the FP offering.
