So what do you think? We are going to WDW May 28-June 5. Staying at AKV 2bdrm, have dining reservations that I am tracking with My Disney Experience. We have vouchers for AP's and Tickets bought at in our party. Will not be able to use the FP+, but do you think the old standards of FP will still work for my planning purposes? Are they anticipating a time frame for old FP to go by the wayside?
