Sorry if this is a silly question, but here it goes. Will we get KTTK cards if we bought our tickets from UT, provided they are still issuing them when we check-in in 2 weeks (I've already linked the tickets to MDE)?

I completely agree with you.

I also really hope that rumour is not true
Since I've made my FP+ selections now only because we was told we could still have the normal FP too!
I can't see them being able up just stop FP pulling during the trial without some proper advanced notification so we can make an informed choice!

Does anyone here know the answer to this? It says our bands have now shipped to the resort ( we are in Canada), but if we switch resorts at this point what would happen to our already shipped magic bands and FP+ that we ave made?

Nothing would happen, MB have rolled out to all resorts at this point in time!

I went the opposite way with mine, concerning the not quite perfect fit. I curled it a bit tighter before putting it back in the box, making it more of a round, and now it curves around my wrist the way I want. But I agree, they do seem to need some kind of *adjustment* to make them more comfortable.

So they would just send our bands on to whatever resort we switch too?

They probably could/would if they were customized already anyways.
If not, they would issue you the grey bands.

A KTTW (Key to the World) card is the room key that they have been handing out to resort guests for years. The KTTW card has held the room key and tickets purchased through Disney during all that time. Charging privileges have been included on the KTTW card for years, too. Everyone in the resort room gets a KTTW card.

I don't know if the ticket that you purchased from Undercover Tourist will be on the KTTW. In the past the answer would be no. But if the KTTW now has the same info as the MB, then maybe the answer is yes. It is a good question that maybe someone else can answer.

I don't know about you, but I definitely do NOT want to be part of that 2nd test!!!!


Disney's MyMagic+ system doing more testing

Leah Zanolla | Posted: Oct 23, 2013 | Updated: Oct 23, 2013 - 12:56:49 PM
As we get closer to the full roll-out of Walt Disney World's new MyMagic+ system, more and more tests are taking place. This week, the bands will be tested during Extra Magic Hours at Disney's Hollywood Studios on October 25, 27 and November 2. Guests with MagicBands will check in with a cast member using a handheld reader outside of the turnstiles. This will verify that they are indeed resort guests and they will then proceed through the turnstiles. When entering each attraction, the MagicBands will need to be touched to a handheld device one more time before the guests can gain entrance. For resort guests who do not have a MagicBand, they will be able to show their Key to the World cards like normal.

The other test going on will be to actually eliminate the Key to the World cards for select guests. These guests will use only the MagicBand for their park tickets, room key, FastPass+ ticket and to charge to their resort account. This test will begin October 27, but it is unclear how the guests will be selected. Currently, guests receiving MagicBands are also given a Key to the World card, which has enabled users to utilize both FastPass+ and the regular FastPass tickets.

Eek! Me either. Where did you get this? It seems there have been several reports with that date. I know I've said this before but I hate not knowing what is going on!

Just what I was saying, except I didn't know it was going to be random and not everyone! Please don't let them pick us!!!!!! By November 14TH, they may pick everyone. I am going prepared to only have three FPs, just in case.

OK, we just got our invitation to participate and we are staying at Saratoga Springs (DVC members) over Thanksgiving. Yes, we are going to participate because I already have it all linked, band selected, and tickets linked. I did notice this at the bottom of the invitation e-mail:

Quote:
**FastPass+ experiences, the number of selections you can make and arrival windows are limited.
It does NOT say 3, which confirms what my relative who is working with FP+ told me, that three is the first number and it WILL change eventually.

It also doesn't say we are losing access to the legacy FP system.
