60 Day Check-in

I'm just curious, what is the benefit (on either side) to the 60 day online check in? I'm not complaining, just curious. Why did they add so much time to it. I'm not sure if I should do it at the 60 day point or wait until it gets closer.

There is no benefit until they officially roll out the FastPass+ system. Once live you'll be able to make FP+ reservations 60 days out AFTER you have checked in online.

No announcement yet. They are currently in the testing phase. Random guests are getting emails inviting them to help in the testing.

Ooh, I'd love to be one of those random guests! My 60 day mark is "fast" approaching!

Do they pick the random guests from those that do check-in at 60 days?
