Fast Pass, Magic Bands and early tickets

Totally confused. Apparently we have Fast Pass Plus for our trip to Animal Kingdom Lodge. I can pick the selections online.

We are checking in a day early at Art of Animation. Since we are on Fast Pass PLus does that mean we have magic bands and cannot get our tickets early?

Ugh

I would just add a day early at Animal Kindgom but it is booked solid the day before grrr

The only reason I really care is the first day was the ONLY day I could get Be OUr Guest Reservations

Momofone - When is your stay?

I am in the same situation, needing a one-day early pickup / activation to be able to attend dinner at the Royal Table in MK.

It seems nobody has tried this yet with the magicbands on the board, so we are waiting on the first answer.

With the magic band? I'll be anxiously awaiting your report. With the fastpass + I understand you can't use it for the early days- is this correct?

Yup. I'm going to try entering without getting the tickets and then go pick them up if it doesn't work.

Subbing, as we need to know this too for our Nov stay! Also, does anyone know if doing online check will hinder you from getting tickets early?

Would love to find out. We will be getting there a day earlier (staying offsite the 1st night) than I had originally planned, thought about just doing DTD for the day, but closer that I get to time, the more I really want to go to the parks, even for a little while. Would love to find out if I can start using my tickets from my package earlier. We will have magic bands too.

Why do people check in a day early in another resort?

You DON'T want to do early check in because they will put your pkg together too early with your tickets attached so when you go to guest services they won't be able to pull it up.

We end up doing this almost every trip. We plan it out then decide later to drive down the day before so we will be there and ready the first day. Then we might as well add another day ticket as cheap as it is and just go to the park for a few hours that first night. But to save money we stay offsite that first night- probably more trouble than it is worth but we end up doing it and are going to do it again in Nov.

We did online check in on our last trip and had to pick up some of the tickets 3 days early. The guy at guest services said he was separating the tickets from our package and that our KTTW card would contain just our room key and dining plan when we picked it up 3 days later. Everything went smoothly. I assume it will work the same with MB. It would be super convenient if the MBs end up letting you enter the park anytime after you receive them, even before your reservation (with them still expiring 14 days after activation so people wouldn't activate too early).

This was suggested by Cheshire figment. You have know idea who you might get at guest relations and with the onset of the magic bands could complicate things. I'm still doing online check-in at pofq because that's just a room only reservation. But the last time I did this I found it didn't save me any time because people in that line started asking so many questions that the other lines moved quicker. But it's nice to see someone posting there experience on early ticket pickup. This is my first time doing this and I don't want anything to complicate things.
