I would love to try this out!!
It only applies if you are arriving via ME on the 11th, 12th, 13th, 14th, or 15th from the sounds of it.

Thanks

i did my own booking so the email was sent to me.

if you used a TA, i would assume it would be sent to them, as they would be holding the reservation.
in turn, then forward to you?

Something that seems to be forgotten in the excitement of "who got invited" and such...

Toy Story Mania.

For the duration of this test, I wouldn't expect riding it or getting a normal FP to be easy or even possible.

Still waiting patiently for that magical email. Anybody get one today?

Bah, I hope this FP+ stuff doesn't get fully implemented before my trip in Jan/Feb. I like the benefits of being Disney savvy while at the parks....

Oh, we arrive via Magical Express the evening of the 11th and check out on the 16th, maybe we will be one of the selected guests! Would love an advance fast pass for Toy Story!

Based on the OP's original post (below), I'm curious about a few things:

From Dec. 11-15, select Guests who are registered to use Disney’s Magical Express service will be offered the opportunity to go online to pre-select four Disney FastPass+ experiences at Magic Kingdom Park and three experiences at Disney’s Hollywood Studios Park. Guests eligible for this test will be notified via mail this week, at the mailing address on the booking. The mailing includes FastPass+ cards .

1.) It doesn't say you have to arrive from 12/11 - 12/15, it just says the test will be going on during those dates. It does say you have to be registered to use ME.
2.) It says the information will be coming via mail, not email.

I'm not sure if this is the exact message from Disney, but it definitely leaves questions out there.

I had friends who were there in September and they were selected, but it came via email. Needless to say, we will be there during that week and I hope it is open to us. We arrive on the 9th, so I'm hoping my interpretation of the message is correct.

FWIW, the site fastpassplus.disney.go.com was put back up today. It wouldn't hurt to try and enter your reservation number.

I guess we can now say it is officially not a "rumor".
