FP+ with school group

I am looking for some helpful hints and advice for using FP+ with a school group later this month. I am a chaperone and will have a group of 10 middle schoolers with me when touring the parks. My family recently used FP+ on our last trip and liked it (stayed on site, we had APs that I linked to my MDE account in advance), but I know many of you don't like it. I am not looking to rehash that debate in this thread, just figure out how to make make the most of whatever system will be available to us on this school trip.

It sounds like all FP- machines have been removed from each park. Is this true? Can we take our tickets to a kiosk when we get to each park and book FP+, or is this just available for certain guests at this point? We are staying off site if that matters. I do not have a copy of the kids' tickets at this time, but once I have ticket numbers, can I possibly add the students to my MDE account in order to book FP+ in advance?

Thanks in advance for any help!

Yes all FP- is gone.

As it currently stands you will be able to take your tickets that day and go up to a FP+ kiosk and schedule FP+ for that day.

Its been reported that even if you are on site with a school group and YES tickets that you still can't schedule 60 days out.

Also there have been reports that they are testing some options of FP+ with off siters right now. Sounds like you can't schedule 60 days out but can us your smart phone to rearrange your schedule.
