Can one member of your party use another member's fastpass +? Would you have to use their band to enter the ride?

For now, the FP+ user must have a MagicBand. It is easy to transfer them to others.

I was able to pull regular fast pass in addition to my FP+ at AK on 9/28.

10/14 is the date of the rollout at WL. People who check in there before that date are not testing MB. We check in the 19th, and got the letter inviting us to TEST.

We got MBs with stay at AoA in September (linked SAPs). Staying at CBR this weekend for ToT run and they said thy didn't have MB capability yet. However, our MBs did work As room keys. Will try charging on them tomorrow.

Double dipping we rode TSM 1x, ToT 2x, Star Tours 2x, and RnR 3x between 4-7pm. Not busy AT ALL. Walked on Star Tours, RnR, and ToT each once.

We are staying at AoA 10/13-15 after a 3-night cruise on the Dream. We received our Magic Bands in the mail yesterday, about 36 hours after I customized them online.

We were hoping to get off the ship and drive straight to Magic Kingdom. I've picked 3 FP+ attractions for that morning and we have lunch at BOG. I spoke with a Cast Member, however, who told me that we would have to stop by AoA and check-in (even if it is 9am) in order to activate and use our MB for park admission and FP+ reservations. We have previously purchased MYW NE PH tickets that I already linked to our Magic Bands. We'll have those tickets with us as back-ups, just in case.

I did online check-in for AoA and linked my credit card for charging privileges on my wife's and my Magic Bands.

1) Do we really need to check in and get KTTW cards or can we go straight to MK? Do the MB really need to be activated at the resort or are they already good to go, as is? What truly would be the need for KTTW cards at MK?

2) Since we will have regular RFID tickets (now linked to Magic Bands) with us, can we use these to double-dip?

3) My son and daughter still have older paper tickets with a mag-stripe. I think I linked them to their names online, but they are not showing up linked to their MB on MDE. I assume we'll just have them scan those at the turnstiles if their MB don't work. Will those still work for double-dipping as well?

Thanks!

Just an FYI - I got my letter yesterday for our stay, 10/31 - 11/09 and staying at OKW, to TEST the MagicBands. Testing is still going through November, so the KTTW cards should work. Additionally, remember Disney is not going to alienate the people staying off-site by getting rid of the FP machines with no warning.

I agree.

I think it's probably safe to assume that the legacy FP machines will be operational until whenever they roll out MB's to the Swolphin resorts and off-site guests.

The most likely scenario to affect double dipping will be when they decide that they no longer need to issue KTTW for on-site guests as a backup to the MB. That will be what effectively closes this loophole.

Swolphin and off-site will still be able to use the active legacy system with KTTW. On-site will not have KTTW and will therefore be restricted to FP+ via MB.

Personally, I'm hoping that check-ins through at least Nov 1 will still be getting KTTW as backups

there have been some rumors out that testing will continue through Novemeber but that a full roll out will happen in Dec.


I would think that the full roll out would make more sense in Jan after the crazy Christmas/New Year mayham. I can't even imagine dealing with the testing issues during the holidays.

That said I am one of the testers for FP+ in Oct. Given the ability to Double Dip, eh maybe. I doubt I'd even think twice about the 'fair' or 'moral' obigations. Since I do think that the 3 limit when anyone else can pull as many as thier time allows stinks. (I'm still thinking that once the testing is over that 3 limit will change, well at least I'm hopeful).

I've pre selected for my park days and as my mom is with me this trip we will be doing shorter park times than I would if I were going solo. I chose the 3 allowed FP+ with her in mind and her time limits in mind as well. Which is the really huge advantage to FP+. I'm dobutful that traditional FP will even help me on this trip, so I'll probably skip using it, but if I have the ability and we can fit it into her needs I might.

I had thought about FP+ing those shows and attractions that generally don't have paper FP and then using the KTTK for the actual headliners, but if they do discontinue paper FP I want to be sure to have the three that are most important for me.

If I were solo, traditional FP would work better for me so if I had both options I probably would do both.
