That could be.

Eventually, the old MBs will probably be deactivated and have to be "reactivated" with a new resort reservation and new tickets to make kiosk FP+ in the future. That could happen next week or next year.

But it may always be a good idea to keep park tickets off the reservation/MDE -- until Disney requires that they be connected! That day will probably be further into the future. Until then, you should be able to get at least two sets of FPs.

Ok I have bands from a prior trip and a different MDE account. They were however linked to the tickets from that trip. Can these work to get FPs at the kiosks?

You.give them.too much credit. There are things I.can.do.with my bands that definitely bend/break.the system.but Im.not.helping IT make my life anymore difficult. Ive been able to do the things for 8months so I.dont think they even know about it or care.

As of right now (and for who knows how long), the old bands will work at the FP+ kiosks. Your new tickets will give you a separate set of FPs. And if you have a new resort reservation (not linked to your new tickets), you'll get a third set.

If you do this, you give up the option to book in advance though.

I just want to share that this loophole may be closed sooner than you think. Just like with FP- when they turn on "in park validation" you will not be able to use a piece of media that hasn't been scanned for entry. Remember FP- tickets that would be spit out saying they were not valid? They have already begun testing with the in park validation for the new media. So if you bring an extra ticket, band linked to another account, your brother's MB etc you will not be able to use it to make FP selections at the kiosk, as it will not have been scanned and used for entry.

Give up the option or get 9 extra fast passes? I know which one I'm picking.

OP is brilliant. I love it when people figure out ways to game the system.

Yeah, but his bands are not linked to tickets. Disney would need to require every band to be linked to a ticket, which may happen.

Also, even if they did you could enter the park multiple times since they do not know you left.

No doubt just a matter of time.

But if all your bands are connected to the same ticket, multiple entries (in order to activate multiple bands) wouldn't get you multiple sets of FPs. That will be the truly extra crispy FP+.

You are missing the point, so I will try to explain better.

You have Magicband A with no tickets linked
You have your Park ticket
You have your Magicband B which is from an old trip on different account

You enter the park using your park ticket. If in park validation is turned on the ONLY thing that will work to access FP will be your park ticket, because Magicbands A and B are pieces of media that have not been scanned for admission (even if you have completely separate tickets from the one you scanned at the gate).

When in park validation was turned on, you could not use say an extra ticket, a ticket for the WP or KTTW to get FP- because you would get "Not a valid FP" on the bottom it would read "Your ticket was not scanned for admission today at _______"

Now to clarify, If you have this situation
You have your park ticket
You have your MB that has your ticket linked

You enter using your park ticket, your MB or your Park ticket can be used to get FP. This is because the ticket and the MB act as one in the same in "connecting" to your MDX account.

The number of times you enter and exit the park has nothing to do with FP, when in park validation is turned on it only matters that you enter once.

You can use any one of them on any given day so you can color coordinate them with your outfits each day if you'd like. You do not have to use your current MB. It is very likely they will only let a MB with active tickets book at FP+s in the near future. So a MB linked to a MDE with no tickets will not be able to get FP+. I assume your glitch has to do with the AP switchover that is happening this week.

This.

Our family has 4 sets of magic bands. You can't get different FP+ for each band, only for the number of MDE accounts that have bands linked to them. Our bands are all linked to one MDE account, so that is one set of FP+. Each of our four bands would pull up the same reservation. The FP+ are linked to your account. The MB is a pointer to the account.

9 FP for Captain EO, Figment, Stitch, Studio Backlot Tour, Indiana Jones, and whatever might be left, . . . . or three headliners where the FP really matters. An easy choice indeed.
