So you got Magic Bands and Key to the World cards when you checked in, but the KTTW cards can't be used to spit out paper FP's?

Well, maybe I won't try to get FP+ when we go. Seems like we could do more with the old school FP.

The situation is that with FP+ pulling from the pool of FP positions, "regular" FP is running out of tickets earlier.

If it's allowed. Opting out of the magic bands does not nessesarily mean you get fp-. Just an rfid card that still works pretty much the same. Just ask any one staying at POP.

As far as I know, offsite guests (except the Swan/Dolphin) don't have access to FP+, so I'm not sure if the playing field is level or not. I don't know if they have access to any kind of FP, or if it's just over? Seems strange that there was no word of BC losing the FP- ability. It was all over the boards that it was going to happen at Pop.

... and a pretty sucky playing field if you ask me. (versus how things were before FP+)

Mother Gothel, can you clarify what you mean? Your KTTW card is not pulling paper FP's? Where are you staying at? When did you check in?

All last week we were able to use KTTW to pull FP-. If this is true it must have just happened yesterday. I heard no reports of this while at the parks on Friday.

Mother Gothel, I do not mean to offend, but the CM saying they took it away earlier this week....

Others staying onsite have posted about pulling paper FP's right through yesterday, so that conflicts with what you were told. Maybe "they took it away" from Beach Club guests earlier this week? You are the first reporting this. Just trying to know the details.
