If this is how FP+ functions, it's going to drive people nuts unless things are fully available when the 60 day out mark comes.
UM, I am confused. What will the fastpass plus at wishes do for you? Can someone explain?

FP+ options seem to be growing for Sept. 25th - Oct. 6th. Still no fireworks/nighttime shows yet....Wondering if I should lock myself into some attractions and change them later when the shows become available.
Hi! I am looking for those fastpass as well during the same dates. If they become available I'll post here I also already picked other fp+ options and plan to change them out for the shows if I can.

I'm still confused as to the Wishes FP+ thing, because how does that work exactly?? Is there now a special area for FP+ holders for viewing??

It just means you get preferred seating in the Rose Garden. I haven't heard anybody report on doing it yet (but haven't really looked), so I am very curious to try it and see if it's worth it.. anybody heard anything about the experience? is the location decent?

Riverside is eligible starting 9-3 we arrive 8-30 at French quarter. Would love to get a standard room at animal kingdom but none available. Gonna keep checking though

This will be super helpful because I don't know who the poster was or where the thread is, but I know I read a review of the FP+ viewing area for Wishes, and it was overwhelmingly postive.

Maybe do a search for "rose garden" and see what comes up.

If you search my posts I wrote a review of it the first night it was offered (and the 2nd lol). I can't figure out how to link on the iPad.

Just booked the night before our trip starts at PoP. I don't relish the idea of buying a room we won't use, so I may change our CSR ressie to be 6 nights instead of 7 and just stay in the PoP room the first night.

Immediately I was able to customize the bands and started fooling around with the FP+. Still trying to figure it all out, doesn't seem to me the times are exactly what I'd like. And when I try to change the attraction, it only gives me a limited number of options. I'll keep messing with it from now until we get there I'm sure. I'm never quite satisfied with my ADRs, so I'm sure this will be that times 100

Thanks! I will do the same! And maybe we'll see each other down there!

We are arriving on Aug 30th - Sept 7th and staying at POFQ we did not receive an invite. My parents are arriving at the same time but staying at POP and they received a letter last week inviting them to try it. Since other then staying at different resorts we keep the same schedule for rides and dinner and such they chose not to take advantage of it since we did not get the offer as well

I booked 1 night at POP before our Kidani reservation start, but we've decided that we'd rather stay at AoA so we're cancelling Pop... Our MBs for our Pop ressie are being process right now, does anyone what happens to those MBs? Will we get a second set, or will they just transfer over to AoA?
We're using the Armed Forces Salute tickets, so no FP+ to worry about...

Re: Wishes FP+...

Here is your link: http://www.disboards.com/showthread....n#post49166848

And I had a friend come back after reserving inside the rose garden for Wishes. She had no complaints about it and really enjoyed the photopass photographer that came around to take photos of her family.
