We arrive on the 15th, signed up for ME, but didn't get an email and none of our reservation numbers worked to log in. So i called and the CM said since we were getting there only the last day, we weren't eligible, even though I said we'd be willing to go over to MK that night for MSEP and Wishes (not the original plan). Bummed.

Are you staying in a value resort like me?

If these people are able to get regular fast passes AND use their special whatever passes for my Dec 8th-14th trip I am seriously going to complain. If there are so few people doing the test, I don't notice then fine, whatever Mickey. I just hope it doesn't change my wait times or availability of regular FP during certain times.

Does anyone else find it strange that FP+ is being tied to ME reservations, and not resort reservations?

If this is the plan going forward, then people who aren't taking ME will reserve a ride anyway, to get access to FP+

Unless, they plan to start charging for ME....

Upon arrival at Disneys Magical Express at the Welcome Center in Orlando International Airport, Cast Members will be available to provide you with a new Disney FastPass+ card. In addition, you can visit City Hall at Magic Kingdom® Park or Guest Relations at Disneys Hollywood Studios® once you arrive at the parks.

How do I redeem my Disney FastPass+ selections?
To redeem a Disney FastPass+ selection simply present your Disney FastPass+ card to the Cast Member at the Disney FastPass+ entrance of the attraction, show or entertainment offering during your arrival window.

Not thrilled that the Swan and Dolphin are left out of this process. Does not bode well for the future. Up until now, those resorts have been grouped with Disney's for EMHs and most other perks. But FP+ doesn't seem as much as a "perk" as it is "the wave of the future". Will not sit well if Swan and Dolphin guests are lumped in with Kissimmee roadside hotel guests.

Thanks for posting these! I was wondering how folks who received an e-mail vs. real mail received the FP+ cards. Now I know we can just check at ME if we don't receive them ahead of time.

We're staying at AoA. And to top it off, our friends (also staying at AoA), with whom we will be touring the parks DID get chosen. So I guess when they to do their FP+ rides, we can sit and watch.

BOO!

"Standby" for Wishes Viewing Area ??

My Fastpass+ options show Standby for Wishes, but is grayed out, and I can't select it.

This would be my first choice if available.
Does anyone know what area is reserved for Wishes?

Yes. You can revise your picks until you use them.

Mommycal - have you tried your reservation number on your yellow ME tags? That worked for my sister in-law today. Worth a shot!

I guess we didn't get the pixie dust either... Tried our ME number without any luck. I called and were told that we aren't eligible without the email. Boo!!! We are there from the 9th until the 12th. Oh well.....
