You don't already have any tickets at all?

Is the second part of your trip a package with tickets? If so from what I've read if you link your reservations (room only and package) it will allow you to make FP+ selections. Also you can get your package tickets up to 3 days early (just tickets not dining credits if you have dining). You shouldn't need to buy 1 day tickets if you already have tickets.

You only need one ticket per person and then you just buy how ever many days/park entitlements you need for each ticket. There can be a max of 10 days per ticket so if you already have 10 day tickets you would need to get another ticket. Once you get a 4 or 5 day ticket or so it's only about $10 to add each day.

Please excuse me if this has been asked already

We got the invite to participate in the test. If we do the test and get the bands and FP+, can we still use regular fastpasses?

Can you just add a day to your existing tickets? It will be cheaper for sure!

So I committed a big goof tonight - we decided to try and book the POR room in hopes of getting to try the MB/FP+. SO I logged in - found a room at POR (we are a fam of 5) and booked it. (we were staying off site the first night anyway) So I log out - log back in and my reservation is gone....I it's no where on my MDE. THen I finally find it but can't check in...and no FP+ or MB.......then I log out and try again and I notice....I didn't book a room for 2013....but for 2014

So a call to guest relations and I get it all straightened out

And when I log back in I get the go ahead to choose my FP+ and customize my MB's all the way through my second reservation at BLT.

Super excited now

22 days till our trip

Technically yes, you can use both FP+ and regular FP - but speaking from experience, you probably won't have time to juggle both and keep it all straight. This is a blessing for those of us 'unfortunate souls' who aren't staying at a test resort

I lust received my email from Disney Destinations I've been picked to do the MBs. I have until August 30 to customize the bands so we can get them by our trip. I got my customized bands two weeks ago!

Disney really needs to be more on top of this.
