MSEP or Wishes FP+

Always love the great maps Robo.

Your opinion please:

So, if you planned to watch MSEP at 8pm and then Wishes at 9pm, and could choose only one FP+ location (and you HAD to choose one FP+ location and stay there for both events ), would you choose to watch both MSEP and Wishes from the MSEP FP+ location in the hub, or MSEP and Wishes from the Wishes FP+ location in the Rose Garden? (Sorry for the run on sentence )

That's a pretty steep price considering that you are only allowed to pick 3 (maybe 4) FP+ selections per day, total.
Okay, thanks.

I didn't know they included these as parts of the new FP+ system(which I already hate the idea of "scheduling" my rides.

I agree, especially during busy times, giving up a ride FP for a better viewing area that you can probably get on your own is not a good deal.

All viewed from the MSEP position (in the Hub.)

(And, thanks for the kind words about the maps, Dan!)

Robo, I also wanted to thank you for all the great maps/pictures you post. When we went 3 years ago I remember asking my husband how so many people seemed to know what to do, where to go and when to do it. It felt like they had some kind of secret map, now I know, they were probably from here and they had your maps.

Very kind of you to say!

Makes my day!

Are you saying that you have 4 total FP+'s for both MK and Epcot? I know that 4 is the usual number at MK, but I've never seen more than 3 at Epcot.

Yes, we have a Fast Pass + for IllumiNations on Saturday, Sept 7! I couldn't find an option for the Main Street Electrical Parade, though. Hoping this will be a good viewing spot, and not too overly crowded at Epcot.

Magic Bands Fast Pass +

We are headed to WDW Sept 5-18, 2013. In the past, my husband has let me use HIS Fast Pass for rides that he doesn't want to ride. I ride the Rock n Roller Coaster first, and then ride right away-- again-- using HIS Fast Pass. I am wondering if that will no longer be an option, as his Magic Band will show his name on the display at the Fast Pass entrance. Anyone have experience with this?

No experience, but considering you have to book the FP+ for each individual member of your party, I am quite certain you can't transfer them.

There's little doubt that guests will be slipping off and handing each other their own bands for this kind of FP "trade."

Doesn't sound like a good idea.

But, I also doubt that that most CM's will care at bit if the name "Fred" shows up on the screen and you're a gal.

I have been reading here and on other threads that you can only get a total of 3 FP+ for rides/attractions/parades/fireworks. Also all three can be at one park only. I just made 3 FPs for rides at AK on September 30th and that night I made both Wishes and MSEP at MK. Will I be able to do all 5 on that day? I'm wondering if this is a mistake on the site. Has anyone done 3 rides in one park and then watched Wishes and MSEP at MK?
