On a whim, our family of 9 decided to do WDW. Got the tickets. But now that I’m doing some research, I discovered there are no FastPasses so waits for most attractions are 30+ minutes! Last time we went, the touring plans were so amazing (with the FastPasses)that we almost never rode anything that took longer than a 10-minute wait. So now I’m having buyer’s remorse and thinking this is going to be the vacation from hell instead of “the happiest place on Earth”. I’m normally an optimist but between reading that Epcot is super-outdated (and could arguably be skipped if staying 4 days or less) and looking at these big double-digit wait times for almost every ride in each of my Lines touring plans, I’m feeling like I should’ve saved my WDW money for some time later when they bring FP (or something like it) back. Ack!
For those of you who have done WDW in this non-FP time, am I overreacting? Or is it really as bad as I suspect it will be? Is anyone able to legitimately talk me off the ledge or are my fears going to be realized?
