Me too though I can't book till May, I've only seen a FP once for it and that was on the actual day. I think we'll plan to rope drop and hope to pick one up the night before or that morning as people change their plans. Won't stop me checking like a crazy person every day though...

Getting fastpasses at 30 days is a real problem for the sought after rides.
Especially if you are off site

As we stay onsite (DVC owners) we get to book at 60 days.
I have just done this recently and got all the hard to get attractions.
These days there are many more onsite rooms and hotels and those hotels are staying fuller more often.
Guests are more aware about getting fastpasses booked up as well.

Disney should do something to sort this out.
They should be more amenable to offsite guests.

Disney is a business whose sole aim is to make money (seems this often comes as a surprise to people!). They want to make onsite stays attractive to people so that they will continue to pay to stay onsite and to eat and drink wholly in the bubble, putting pennies in their pockets. Offering perks such as 60 day fastpass is one way of doing it.

Yes, it's frustrating if you stay off site and can't get what you want, but if they take away the 60 day advantge to onsite guests, there will still be the same total number of fastpasses being fought for by the same people and the same number of disappointed people. Unfortunately there is no reason for Disney to "be more amenable to offsite guests". It is what it is.

Not even by the massive development of offsite hotels and villas that others provide so people can go and spend their money at Disney.

I think that Fastpasses as they are are gonna change to Disney finding a way to charge for them in the future.
They will find a way, they know its free at the moment which must be really bugging their financial people

Just to give you a bit of hope, I managed to book FOP at 30days out - I was on literally as the booking opened and managed to grab an evening slot 8-9pm. Iíve since been able to bring that forward to 6pm and we go next week. So things do open up, just be persistent and keep checking!
