1 - It's for Princesses or Mickey (at least that's what it was on Wednesday), no ride came out with the Princesses.

2 - When we got Winnie the Pooh FPs, we also received Dumbo with them.

3 - We don't FP Philharmagic.

fast'passes'today might not be whats happening when you go.

princesses are tied'to the fast pass sytem. you have to wait the time to pull another.
mickey mouse is not....so you could get princesses and mickey and they are right beside each other.

phil hamonic-we never needed fp for that.

we got an extra dumbo fp when we pulled'fp'for'princesses

1) Princesses and Mickey are separate FPs at the Town Square. Mickey is not connected to the system, so you can get them while holding FPs for another attraction. The princesses are connected to the system.

2) Dumbo is not connected to the system. I don't think it gives a bonus FP.

3) My memory fails me, but I believe you get a bonus Philharmagic FP when you get a Peter Pan FP. Also, the Pooh and Little Mermaid FP machines are near Philharmagic.

4?) Additional info: Pooh gives a bonus Dumbo FP. Barnstormer is not connected to the system

Please clarify ... when you say that a FP is not connected to the system what does that mean exactly. I am thinking that you are then able to get another FP without waiting for the "window of time" to pass - is this correct? Are then any postings with a complete list of these? Also when you say they give you a bonus FP does that mean that when you get a FP at one ride, it will give you a FP for the other ride? How likely is this for March when it is busy at the parks? I also thought I read that there wasn't a FP for Philharmagic anymore ... isn't this where the FP for Under the Seas is picked up?

I would like to know too. Also, pp mentioned getting a "bonus" dumbo FP with winnie the pooh, is that always true, or just for resort guests, or random...?

Precisely. If a set of Fastpass machines is "disconnected" then you do not have to wait for the up to 2 hours before getting that one or another fastpass.

Only one of the two sets of machines has to be "disconnected" for you to get fastpasses fromboth of them in quick succession. Works in either order.

Except if the fastpasses are #2 and #3 for you then #1 might affect your ability to get the one that is not "disconnected".

The worst case delay between fastpasses can be smaller for a few rides.

The February 14th post on easywdw gives a rundown of what is current with the non-connected fastpasses.

As far as I know, Philharmagic doesn't have FP anymore.

Also any bonus FPs you get will be for a ride that doesn't really need it. Its just a way to drive people to less popular rides.

Philarmagic doesn't have a FP distrubution per se, but many times if you grab a FP for Pooh or Under the Sea it will give you a bonus FP for Philarmagic, however - you never really need a FP for it...

The last two times we grabbed FP for Princesses, we also got a Bonus fast pass for Dumbo. When we went, we grabbed Mickey, Princesses and then got the bonus Dumbo which was awesome...

Barnstormer *IS* supposedly connected to the system.
