Are you using Magical Express? What resort are you staying at? I wonder if either of those things make a difference.

I hope you are able to get into the trial. I'm eager to hear back as to where the reserved location is for the Wishes fireworks.

Random selection is random.

I'll be arriving on the 26th, but the testing ends before that anyway (I'm thinking the 24th? not 100% sure on it though). If you are going all of next week, then really there's only likely to be one day where it's a potential issue with your traveling companions, since the 24th is next Monday anyway.

I arrive Sunday and was chosen to do the fast pass trial about 2 weeks ago. I actually chose the day I arrive since I will be heading right to MK that day anyway. Looking forward to it! It is only going on until Sept 24th though, but when I signed up online, it let me pick one day from 9/23 - 9/27.

Can be the Rose Garden area or the area I've marked as "Lower Tables."

There have already been many threads discussing the latest FP+ testing.

Just returned on Fri. The people I talked to at MK that were doing the PF+ did not like it. The most common coment was at they missed most of their return times.
