We received the above on our cell phones today at 11:30 a.m…No FP s available in any park on a Touring Plans RCL 8 day. We were in EPCOT when we received this. EP & MK were CL 8. HS a nine and AK a 7. Honestly, EPCOT did not look that crowded. In light of Len’s investigation of crowd level manipulation by Disney ( via reduced ride capacity); is this to be expected all summer? I don’t ever remember seeing this. Even on the fourth of July. NOTE: a few (non-desirable) EP Fast Passes became available around 1:30 p.m. Approximately two.
In addition, I received a FP for myself for Space Ship Earth at 2:15 p.m. that I did not request. As we were walking out of the park around 1:30 p.m., I checked my phone again, and lo and behold, my wife also now had 2:15 p.m. SSE FP. We told the cast member at SSE what had happened. She said touch your magic bands and they both came up blue. She then told us to proceed into the FP line at SSE. We walked around the left side line and right on to the ride. No wait at all. WHAT GIVES???
You are probably right. The FP machines in the park were not working for a lot of other guests. That was around 11 a.m… But I wonder if guests in other parks also received this notification? Honestly, just as we left, it started to rain.
Notification, as in they specifically sent that to you? Or notification as in, you encountered this (false error) message while trying to manage FPP?
It stinks for those who would believe it to be true, but the sad fact is MDE is very glitchy so I rarely trust it when something unbelievable pops up like this. There are ALWAYS FPP to be had. Not always good ones, or ones you want/need, but there are always FPP
