FYI RE: "Double Dipping"

Yes, it still works.

However, we encountered a few CM's that were not happy with us for taking advantage of it.

A piece of advice...

Take off your magic band before approaching the paper FP machines.

You'll avoid the catty CM comments that way.

Well, as one of the grunts who didn't get FP+ it isn't really fair if you guys get both. Just sayin'. I am pretty grumpy that I don't get FP+.

It is a test. The people doing the testing are working through a bunch of issues, in order for Disney to be able to roll out the program and not have a park full of angry guests.

And when has it been determined that life is fair? I must have missed that memo.

Plus, how many people ONLY use 3 fast passes on a trip anyway? The only park where we don't have more than 2 MUST do attractions is Epcot. Just because I have 3 fp+ at MK doesn't mean I can't get fp's for rides I don't have on my fp+.

Once this rolls out to everyone, I'd like like a show of hands of all the people who will ONLY use the 3 fp+ options and NOT get fp's for the other rides.

ETA: Like said above in another post, for park hopping, you have no choice but to use the traditional fp machines. These problems would not exist if people would just keep their noses out of the business of others. Unless you have a copy of their travel plan, you have NO idea what they are doing, what fp's they have, etc. mind your own business.

Not only that, but it would completely alienate the park hopper folks which also 'isn't fair.'

Well if wouldn't be fair to the FP+ testers if we were limited to 3 FP+ per day per park while everyone else was able to grab as many paper FP as they wanted, now would it?

Of course it isn't fair...but life isn't fair as we all know. However, The use of MB and FP+ is by invitation and not command, so I don't buy the notion that it would be unfair to those who CHOOSE to participate in the testing to be stuck with just the FP+ option when non testers can pull however many legacy passes they want.

At some point, the double dipping will end, and then we'll see how FP+ really is.

Exactly, thank you. When we visit in a couple weeks, I'll have no problem letting a CM know regular FP is not prohibited to FP+ testers and they need to adjust their attitude.

^^^ Agree with this!!!! On prior trips, we'd easily pull 5 FPs per day...

It's totally fair. We used to get about 6 or 7 regular fp per day until this trip when we had FP+. This time we used 3 FP+ and 3 regular fastpasses. I don't think it limited anyone's ability to uses FP.

MMmmm, no. No rules were broken. We were given KTTW cards at check-in by the cm at AKL who said that since the bugs were not out of the FP+ system yet, they wanted to make sure we had a back up. I asked if we could use them for regular fastpasses and she said, "yes, please do" and added something to the effect of us having paid for the same resort experience as everyone else and regular fastpasses are a part of that. The FP+ testing experience is a perk, kind of like getting extra time with a character or like the magical experiences during YOMD.

If you have concrete (not anecdotal) evidence of rules having been broken I'd love to see it.

Not sure why people think that those doing testing should not be allowed to use services that they paid for, regular fastpasses included.
