So, it looks like they have updated this capability.

We are excited!
Ooh, off to try that right now

So how does that work, Dan? If you have a ticket linked, how does MDE know if you have a S/D reservation? How is the date that you can reserve triggered? Is it an ADR? I'm feeling very dense.

It all worked out great...it kept all of our FP+ choices after I cancelled my one night stay onsite...since we are already within the 60 day window.

I had originally booked this one night stay months ago when only onsite got FP+ and was waiting for the 30 day offsite rollout but now that we can book FP+ 60 days out I didn't really need the extra night at Key West and the hassle of changing resorts, so even better.

This is my first post, I've lurking for awhile. I have reservations at the Dolphin for August because we got a great rate with the teacher discount. I was finally able to link the reservation to MDE today. I just tried it on whim and it worked. I had previously made ADRs and it's all there now.

If only linked to your ticket, you would be "offsite" and it would be the 30 day capability only - it would not know you are a S/D guest.

The MDE site is now letting you link your S/D reservation - put in your confirmation number for your reservation - and the timing of the FP+ window starts at 60 days, not 30. I just done this and it worked fine.

Yay! Me too - I can only imagine how clueless I would be without the boards.

It didn't work for me - I think my confirmation number is not what MDE wants since it only has 6 digits. I have booked through a discount scheme (through an agent at the hotel though) so have emailed to ask how I can link it.

So sorry, I hope they can link it up for you or the resort can give you a confirmation number that works. I was worried I wouldn't ever be able to since I booked through Starwood.

I was just able to add my Dolphin reservation to MDE. MDE then allowed me to get one page closer to booking FP+ in advance (but I could not actually book it yet). Hopefully that will change on Monday, 3/31.

Go to your account on the SPG site and you will either have a longer confirmation number there or, if not, send the confirm to your email with the link in the confirm box.
