FastPass+ test Question

I am sure this was covered in one of the compilation posts but I missed it. If you get selected for the FP+ testing, you get to select three experiences in advance. During the testing period do you still have the option to use regular fastpass kiosks for additional passes or are you limited to the three early selections?

In my experience it is usually possible to get more than 3 FP in the course of a full day and that might negate the benefit of participating in the test, despite the advantage of the advance reservations?

Anyone know? Thanks

To date, no one has been able to get more than 3 FP+s in a single day, except for some who got a bonus 4th.

I leave on Monday and am part of the test group.

We get 4 FP+ for Magic Kingdom and 3 each for Epcot, HS, and Epcot.

What I am curious about is if you do the FP+ test, can you still get FP from the kiosk.

I am still not sure if FP+ testing will be better as I think that its possible to get more than 4 FP in a full day at MK

You can't get additional FP+ at the kiosks, if that's what you are asking. You are limited to 3 FP+ (and sometimes a bonus 4th in MK), whether you reserve them 60 days in advance or day-of.

You can certainly get more than 3 or 4 FPs in a day under the old system, no problemo.

I have been wondering the same thing and completely agree with you. We definitely use more than 4 regular FP in a given day at MK, and DHS, for that matter. If the full implementation of FP+ means only 3 or 4 FP in a given day per park, I see this as a huge disadvantage. We like the FP system as it currently is and know how to make it work for us. I really have no complaints with it and have found it makes touring quite easy. Being limited on FP means less attractions experienced and way more wasted time in lines. This would make me seriously question future trips. I wish we could get the answer to this question. Our trip is getting closer and I am nervous.

Update OP! Good news. I just got off the phone with the Disney Reservations Center. Yes, you can still use the regular FP in addition to FP+. Just work them into your time window.
