Fastpass+ is stressful!!!

I have been checking the "My Disney Experience" app and site daily to see if we are eligible for magic bands and Fastpass+ and we finally are! However trying to plan Fastpass attractions and times is actually much more stressful than I expected!  I am thinking to Fastpass attractions in the afternoon/evening when things might be busier than at rope drop on days I don't anticipate a struggle in the AM and then in the AM for days I think we will sleep in a bit... I have only attempted the first day so far and have changed it five times already!!!!

Any advice or tips? M'Shel, did you/will you use Fastpass+

You guys are scaring me with all this FP+ talk. I just don't "get" it. And I hate being forced into keeping a schedule (which is why we don't make many ADRs). Ugh... I hope the kinks get worked out and it goes smoothly!!!

Melissa, I talked to my friend who went 2 weeks ago.  She was able to use her KTTW card to get FP's in addition to the ones she got with her FP+.  Good to know!  And I listen to the Passporter Moms podcast every week, and they were there when I was.  It sounds like they were able to change their FP times after they had used the first one, so maybe it was a Verizon glitch when I was using my Smartphone instead of a FP+ issue.  Which Verizon, BTW, was an issue for one of the passporter moms, so if you have them as a provider, just be aware that it might not work on your smartphone.  I did have some issues with the My  Disney Experience not working properly, but that was on my phone as well as Meredith's iPad back at the resort (definitely not a Verizon problem).  However, they DID see people with iPads at the parks standing around ready to help, so look for them Smile
