Yep, Down during our time. Was really bummed about that as we like that one a lot. But I'll be happy if the Railroad does come back up Oct 20th and not November like some are reporting!

I'd wondered about that too before everything became active for me. I was worried as none of my tickets ever showed on the app. But it doesn't effect anything. My tickets show only on MDE website and the app works fine. I can see and change FP+ times on the app etc. The app works just like it should for FP+ even without the tickets showing. I think it's like others are saying, it's really whats in your main account that matters, not really what the glitchy app shows. So just make sure your MDE main website is showing your account correctly and you will be good.

Also a question about that 60 days out : when it comes up, all your dates are available or it will be one day at a time?

bewildered as to what to do

Been searching for a post like Magic Bands/FP+ For Dummies, but there's just so many posts and threads to go through. Can someone clue me in?

Family of 5 (all adults now) going in Dec. 4 of us registered in BWV studio which was going to be very cramped. Luckily 5th member can join us (!) so I got another room but at the Swan to accommodate everyone and spread out.

Not everyone is staying the entire 8 days. We have tickets from UT. 2 of us have 8 day PH, 1 a 5 day PH, and 2 have 3 day PH. If I register all 5 tickets with My Experience link, is there a chance I will only be able to pick FP+ for the first 3 days? I'm leery of the system realizing I'm there for 8 days.

Is there any benefit to my not registering our UT tickets? I have read about registering for FP later in the day of each PH day, which seems good.

What about our MVMCP night?

I used to be so comfortable with our Disney trips but now I'm not! Never dreamed there would be a day when I don't understand my Beloved WDW!

The first post of this thread has a great summary.

Also on the first post is a link to dis-er bcrook's thread "FP + What we know and what we want to know"

Fastpass+ No Fantasmic! or parades late Oct - mid Nov ?

I've looked through all the above dates and no option to select any parades or Fantasmic! appear at all. Why would that be? Has anyone else had the option for those dates?

for anyone who has linked your MDE to other friends/family accounts, was it a pain to schedule everything?
we are going 11/23 - 12/6 and will be meeting up with different friends through out our trip, all are staying on property.
want to get this figured out before we start, there are 9 families in total that will be at WDW during our trip.


also the poster who was going to try and link their Premium AP, did it work? I still have to link ours!

thanks for the help

I have lurked on and off for a while and thought I would take the time today for my first post. My wife and I are both interested in both the bands and FP+. I will admit, the more I read about them, the more confused I get.

At first, I was all in favor of trying something new. I can only imagine how many add-ons my kids will want to attach. However, I am not so confident based on how "AWESOME" the MDE performs on my Android phone. I can only imagine how much "FUN" I will have trying to adjust FP+ times when the app force closes on me every time I try to glance at anything but the opening screen.

We are taking our 2 kids & my parents in October to BLT. I am conflicted as to whether I want access to FP+ for this trip or not. Part of me welcomes the challenge. The other part remembers that my Dad has not been to WDW since Epcot opened. We are planning our next trip with a total group of 10 for Sept 2014, and would like to have had a dry run in before then. I just wish this trip was not that dry run.

I know that when it comes down to it, if Disney says I can use the bands, I will. Call me a sucker for new toys. I appreciate all the posts on the topic. I may still be confused, conflicted & confounded. But, at least I am informed, maybe even educated!

The IT dept added our premier passes. I gave them the numbers, and they did it for me. It took about 48 hours.

Has this question been answered?

Supposedly you are only allowed to use one FP+ on a given attraction each day, right?

Has anyone tried something like the following example? At Epcot, you have a Soarin FP+ from 9-10am, Test Track from 10-11am, and Mission Space from 11am-noon.

After you've had a ride on soarin and used that FP+, has anyone verified that you can't then switch one of the later FP+'s like the 11-noon Mission Space for another Soarin FP+?

I highly doubt this is possible, but it's worth a try?

No, you cannot. They don't disappear and get forgotten. Once you've picked that ride and used it, that's it for the day. Yes I've verified.

I'm very glad I keep checking what's available for my FP+ choices because they change. I did not have Fantasmic available as a choice for several weeks, but was able to choose it recently for our upcoming trip.
