Any tips on getting the 4th FP+ for the magic kingdom to show up?

I had to reset mine and then I was given a 4th. Then went in and changed them all around, including the bonus.

What did you reset them to? I tried changing mine several times and even tried quick picks and could never get a fourth choice?

Thanks for posting! Hopefully those of us with ghost RO will retain FP+ even if we never check into the test resort. Hopefully we will get the official word on this in early Sept.

Quick picks worked for me on one day (it added a 4th) and on the other day I just booked three, went in and changed all three attractions at and it gave me a 4th. Good luck!

The usual method would be to get a child swap pass and then 1 parent can go using FP(or FP+) and the other parent could ride using the swap pass. I think even of this is not how they would want you to do it in the future, for this testing time they will likely say ok for now, but next time do xyz.
I schedule my husband and oldest for space while I got a fp+ for me and my two other younger too short to ride space daughters on buzz at the same exact time.

Hmm good thinking! I was ntf even thinking of sticking around here for wishes. Wishes isn't popping up for me for a fp+ option so this may work. Send dh for food and let the kids play with light up toys while we wait...

The bonus fastpass+ in Magic Kingdom is only offered on certain days. I'm seeing it 9/22-9/24 but not 9/25-9/30.

On 9/22-9/24 it has been given every single time I've gone in to make new picks.

If you only have three and want a fourth, you should be able to create a brand new set of selections from scratch and the bonus should be given.

At least, this has been my experience.

For all wondering, the resorts involved with the September test are the Polynesian, Beach Club (including villas), Art of Animation, AKL Jambo House villas (NOT Kidani) and Port Orleans Riverside, as well as all of the current resorts. (Animal Kingdom Lodge Jambo house, Contemporary, Yacht Club and Pop)

Ok, excuse my inexperience, but just started the FP+ selections last night and the button choices are crazy. How do you go back and check later for Wishes, Parade etc after you have already made your FP+ selections? Do you have to lose all of what you've already picked and start over just to check? Could someone walk me through it? Thanks!

Ghost Reservation Update!!!

The plot thickens!! Being the tech geek that I am, I was puzzled as to how my FP+ access and reservations could vanish when I cancelled my RO ghost reservation and then all of my times and access re-appear when I re-booked my ghost reservation. If everything was deleted when I cancelled, how did it re-appear when I re-booked?

My curiosity got the best of me, so I once again cancelled my ghost reservation. And once again my access and FP+ reservations disappeared. When I logged into MDE clicked on my reservations nothing showed up. When I click on "FastPass+" I get the tired old "Are you ready for the magic" window.

Now here is where it gets interesting. Our Magic Bands are still linked to our account and AP's. Also when I click on "My Itinerary" and select a day from my reservation, all of my FP+ reservations are listed. When I click on any of them, the little window pops up showing all three of us still linked to the fast pass. I can click "Modify FastPass+" in the lower corner and I can still change experiences and times of the FP's if I want.

The only caveat is that Tuesday was our water park day so I did not have any FP+ reservations scheduled for that day. I have not found a way to schedule new experiences for that day, but I am still working on that. I am sure there is a way.

It looks like it just may work!!
