What resort are you staying at? We are at WL on Nov 30th and haven't been able to customize MB's yet.

I don't think you can pick fp+ until it is 60 days out. And you have to have tickets, too.

Both. You cannot make FP+ selections without tickets linked to your account. In addition, you can't make selections until you are at the 60 day mark. At that point you will be able to make them for several days of your trip, just like the 180+10 for dining reservations.

Here is a question for anyone who has done this:

I still need to buy tickets, which I plan to do in the next day or two. I also plan to just buy them through Disney. Will our tickets automatically link themselves to our accounts, or will I have to "do something" to make it happen?

My resort reservations and ADR's just linked themselves without me having to do it. So I'm hoping the park tickets will do it, too.

I am pretty sure they will if you purchase them through Disney!

Mine did not.

When you purchase the tickets, opt for the Will Call option. This means you won't get tickets shipped to you but will pick them up at WDW. Once your order goes through you will get a confirmation number. Enter this number into the Link Tickets section of the My Reservations page on MDE. The system will know how many tickets you ordered and what kind they are. You then assign each ticket to someone in your account.

If you opt for ticket delivery I believe you will have to wait for them to arrive before you can link each one.

We'll be staying at Saratoga Springs Nov 7-13. I can schedule FP+ for every day of our stay except for Nov 12. Anybody else have a day in the middle of the stay that they can't schedule?


I also found out that you may not have certain FP+ times offered if you have a dining ADR. For example, we had a 4:10 ADR at the Plaza in MK. I had to cancel it to get a 6-7PM window for BTMRR. Then I went back in and rescheduled dinner. I guess the computer thought we wouldn't be finished with dinner and make it to Frontierland by the end of the FP+ window.

I am wondering if Nov 30th check in people who are staying at resorts that have been part of the MB test process for several months, like Pop, YC, etc, are more successful than people staying at resorts which just got MB's a few weeks ago, like WL, POFQ, CBR, etc.

I have a feeling this may have something to do with it. I've noticed a few people checking in to WL say that they haven't been able to do it. Oh well, guess we just wait and see.

I had a similar experience. It seems the system will not give you a FP+ option until at least 2 hours after your dining time.

That is not true I have:

12:25- Tusker House Lunch
1:05- 1:25 Festival of the Lion King FP+

Not sure if I will make my window but I couldn't push it later.

I was also offered fast pass time slots that directly overlapped an already scheduled ADR.

I made FP+ reservations yesterday and then had to switch several today, because they directly overlapped with meals we had scheduled (and yes, the meals were linked up on MDE). You're probably not able to get those times because others have taken them, not because of dining reservations.

Yes, and it told me I had an overlapping 'event' too but it still allowed me to pick the time I wanted.
