My Magic Plus

Does anyone think that fastpass plus should be up and running by June? I know they haven't announced anything but I just want to see what everyone has heard.

Unlikely, but miracles could happen.

REALLY unlikely, considering we're still waiting for confirmed full-blown testing to have taken place.

I think they announced that FP+ would be delayed until late 2013.

I haven't heard any announcements at all, other than it is coming...

Considering that they cannot even get a website to run correctly I can't imagine that FP+ will be up and running any time soon.

I could have sworn I saw an an article saying that Magic bands would be available soon but FP+ was delayed. I saw it last week. I'll keep looking and post if I find it.

If it didn't come from Disney itself, then I don't believe it. "Soon" is kinda a relative term too.

A TA was telling everyone yesterday on Facebook that FP+ was starting today...

We keep hearing reports that it's starting this weekend, next week, etc. but they come and go...and if any real testing is being done beyond handing out some Fastpasses for parades, etc., it's Disney's true "best kept secret"...

No. Extraordinarily unlikely, based on what I've heard.

As a followup, it looks like we're looking at the Fall before MM+/FP+ is at least fully operational. Heard that CMs demonstrating the bands at the Odyssey said Fall, and Iger today said "sometime this year", which is usually read as "not soon"...

Do you have a link for iger's statement? I would like to add it to the list.

Oh, I found it. The article paints a pretty good idea of the real goal behind MyMagic+. It is disenchanting.
