I reserved my FP+ allotments this morning and was more than a little surprised at what was available (or, rather, what little was available). Well over half of my times are after noon and many are after 4pm.
Even more confusingly, when I put them into my touring plans, I found that most of the plans did not use them. My trip is in early December. Most of the crowds are predicted to be 4-6. I’m worried that this is a massive underestimate based on the paucity of early morning FP+. Is the touring plan optimization rejecting FP+ as “Using that Fastpass+ reservation may result in longer waits in line” accurate?
I still need to tweak my rests (travelling with 16 month old) and meals to better accommodate a different set of show times / FP+ times.
I am sure we will still have a good time and that we will see more than we would have without either FP+ or touring plans. I am curious though, has there been any effort to include FP+ reservations to approximate (or perhaps inform) crowd levels?
For example: If the crowd levels are expected to be low, you might be surprised if a large number of users input reservation times in the late afternoon. Conversely: If the crowd levels are expected to be high, you might wonder why almost no one was entering FP+ into their plans and those that did were almost universally in the morning.
