Is there a FP+ sticky, tutorial? :)

Have questions, can't find all the answers, and trying to wrap my head around it all.

I have 4-day base tickets for the kids... I just did FP+ on them. But, when get to park we are using those tickets to renew their APs. Will we lose our FP+ selections?

Also, how many FP+ can you do per day... and can you do for more than one park?

Can other members of our family use each other's FP+? Meaning.... I have a son and I who won't ride certain rides, but the other 2 in our family will. Yet, online it issues us FP+ for all 4 of us - only 2 will be riding. So what about the 2 unused one? Can my girls go back on the ride wearing the magicbands with FP+ on them that we didn't use?

Can we still get FP the regular old fashioned way when in the parks, even if already have FP+ selections?


And while at it.. Magicbands.... do we use the same magic bands for future trips, or new every trip? we're doing a split stay... looks like getting 2 sets of them?

Thanks, if anyone can help... or steer me towards a sticky. Looked, can't find.

7- do we use the same magic bands for future trips,

8- or new every trip?

9- we're doing a split stay... looks like getting 2 sets of them?
1- We don't have enough facts to know what the answers to these questions will ultimately be...
AFTER the testing is complete. I'm thinking a Sticky will appear after we do know more.

2- That's not supposed to happen. (But, with anything like this, mistakes can happen.)
Several firsthand reports are that FP+ reservations ARE staying put even after ticket upgrades.

3- 3 (sometimes, rarely, 4)

4- Nope.

5- Yes.

6- At this time, yes. We don't know on what date that will be changing, however.

7- They are designed (with internal batteries) to last up to 3 years.

8- Maybe.

9- At this time, yes.
