I didn't get that little bit of something extra that the other person got! It's not fair! Everyone's experience should be exactly the same all the time! Those kids got to ride the tea cups with Alice and my kid didn't! It's not fair! That couple at check in just got a complimentary upgrade and I didn't! I want the same treatment! Blah blah blah whine whine whine.

Yes I was told also by concierge and when I called Disney about how to link my tickets, I was told both times that I could use both FP+ and regular FP.

I've seen plenty of people post that they thought that it was unfair to be excluded from testing yet this is the first thread with so many attacks. Wow.

I don't see it as unfair...right now. Double dipping probably allows for about as many fastpasses as people would normally get anyway.

I thought anyone can test FP+. You just have to stay at a resort that is testing, right?

Yes, during the dates that they open up testing for those resorts as well.

Right now you have some onsiters who can't test the MB s b/c their resort isn't included. Come November though- it seems EVERY onsite guest will have access so this issue of 'fair' will not be an issue anymore.

Also a good perk for resort guests with Annual Passes (AP's) while making the sacrifice to test Magic Bands. The AP's worked for FP and the KTTK cards worked for additional FP along with FP+ while using Magic Bands. Is this "triple-dipping"?

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.

Having a major portion of your "magical" vacation taken up by standing in line to get something fixed that should have worked correctly from the start is a major inconvenience and I completely understand being irritated/upset/annoyed by it.
Exactly!

We just got back. We "double-dipped" a few times and didn't have one snarky comment from anyone. I would not bother taking off your band when using a paper FP.
