Let me be known by the Company I keep, eclipsed by YOUR presence that I may decrease
I really like a lot of the music they play out around the park

Today was my first attempt at double dipping in the park. I entered using the MB, and it didn't work at the turn style (didn't yesterday, either), so they manually scanned it. When I went to use my KTTW card, it gave me one of those not valid tickets. I tried a different ride and same thing. I spoke with the CM attending the FP machine and she asked me if I entered with the card or the band. When I said band, she asked me if it worked properly at the turnstile or not. I said it didn't and she told me that was the problem. She then went on to say that my KTTW card should work but wasn't because of my entry problem (that made no sense because my kids cards didn't work either but their MBs did upon entry). She said that I shouldn't really be using FP - if I was testing FP + but when I complained about being limited to only 3 FPs she gave me one of those cards that you use in the machines to get FPs. So, according to her I shouldn't really have been double dipping but she gave me cards to double dip. And I only complained very mildly!

Did you have park tickets on the KTTW card?

Yes, they are current KTTW cards, so I assume my tickets are on them. When check in gave them to me he told me they were in case the MB didn't work, so they should have my tickets on them.

. Might be why but hearing all wacky things on KTTW cards working in FP - machines I'm there in 12 days my tickets are separate so it should be interesting..

Have been here six days now, two at Epcot and two at HS, one each at MK and AK. Have been entering the park everyday with either UT paper ticket (days 1-3) or plastic ticket received when trading in paper ticket at Guest Relations - have not been entering park with MB. Every day and every attempt for me I have been able to pull FP- with KTTW cards and UT paper/plastic. We are family of five, so I have five KTTW cards, but only 4 park tickets because one child is under three. When I walk up to FP- machines, I know I can always pull 9 FP- (if they are still available and have not all been distributed). Also doing FP+ every day.

At HS Wednesday, both me and my wife auditioned for American Idol. I made it through first cut but cut in second audition and did not get on stage. They still gave me 7 any ride/anytime paper FPs for my time. My wife is a better singer than me, she made it on stage - they gave her 14 any ride/anytime paper FPs for her time.

All I can say is - got to love this test period! If you are willing to open the parks and do some basic planning, you can ride the headliners every day multiple times with no wait. RNR, ToT, TSM, Soarin, TT, the three mountains at MK, etc. - we have been able to ride all of them three, four, or five times during our visit, as much as anyone would want to. Literally, I have not stood in a line and waited for anything this week. Have either walked right on in a stand-by line or used a FP. Also, several times we have had extra paper FPs we didn't have time to use, which we always give away to a couple or family approaching the stand-by line (this is as fun as riding the ride yourself sometimes).

To achieve this result, have had to use a little bit different strategy at each park. At Epcot and HS you schedule your FP+ and pull paper FPs for headliners only. At MK you schedule FP+ for rides with longest lines you can't pull FP- for (Enchanted Tales w Belle is perfect example - no FP- available and has longest lines of all).

Loved the FP+ for Fantasmic Wednesday night. Was a huge challenge burning through all of those FPs we got from Idol, kids riding TSM/RNR/TOT over and over with their cousins (we shared). Finally had to give up and head over for show. Slid in at 7:40 and still able to have seats for our group in front center section even though it was standing room only for stand-by.

So even though you didn't enter the park with MB, you could still use your fp+ with no problem?

I don't understand whats going on. I tried entering the parks with my plastic seasonal pass. I could not get fastpass-. I tried with my mb and still could not get fastpass- with either room key or plastic tickets. Is anyone else a passholder with their tickets linked to my dis. exp. If so what method are you using to get to use both your fastpass+ and regular fastpass-??

Sounds like this is an issue with APs/SPs.

The system seems to have horrible inconsistencies, particularly with APs. I have a friend who is just back, and she said that she was able to pull paper FPs with her plastic AP card even though she used her MB to get into the park all last week. There doesn't seem to be a rhyme or reason for who it works for and who it doesn't work for.

It's becoming more frequent. On another thread, at least 2 ppl have has issues and they were AP holders. It is upsetting.
