But them can't make FP + correct?

You are correct in linking your tickets to your band.

With the MB, since you have linked your tickets, you will be able to "reserve" FP+ in advance and redeem those FP+'s in the parks.

Enter the park using your MB.

When you check-in, if you are also given a KTTW card (which is happening with current guests) you can use it for FP- Just carry your KTTW cards with you and use them to "pull" FP- (No need to enter the park using the KTTW)

Double-dip = using MB FP+ ...and... KTTW FP-

Hope this helps.

It's good to hear it is working for some.

This is a hot mess!

Are you referring to the old days when you got the concierge to put your UT tix onto your KTTW? If so, I am not sure that is what you need to do - not sure doing that is necessarily wrong, but I did it differently.

I am here this week and I:
-Linked my UT tix to MB weeks ago
-Selected FP+ in advance (If you wait until you arrive to put UT onto KTTW, you will not be able to make FP+ selections until check-in
-I entered the park with MB and redeemed FP+
-Also used KTTW card to double-dip
-Also used UT tix for additional FP-
-And as crazy as it sounds, changed over to AKV today and could even use my 2nd half stay KTTWs for FP+s

Good luck!

That's my plan next week

UT Tickets on MB Will not be on KTTW card
Have FP + will use UT card and KTTW card for FP - if needed...

Thanks. So it seems like the best thing to do is use the regular paper/KTTW tickets to enter the parks. Hopefully this strategy will work with AP as well. I don't even want to get an absurd amount of FP. I just want to get some FP in the morning at DHS for TSMM, ST, ToT, etc. and then keep our FP+ for when we hop over to MK later in the afternoon.

I really hope that they adjust the system down the road to allow park hopping with FP+.

Yes! You will love it. We are rope-drop people and knowing that we had reserved FP+s made our trip so nice.

One thing I will say is that we had several issues of an unknown nature. I am not being a Debbie Downer because I am a MB convert!! Don't know if it was our last minute modified split stay or the UT tix - but my FPs went missing right before my trip; my DD did so the first couple of days; then my DH did the last two days. GOOD THING is that since all three of us arrived at the FP return line together, the CMs, with little hesitation, always let us thru. I had a print out from the concierge of our FPs, but never had to show anyone. We knew with every FP+ there was one of us that would likely not 'light up green' but it was really no big deal.

I was not able to use the app either because of our ticket issues, but being able to use FP- too made up for that.

I am in the same situation and wondering..

If UT tickets are linked to the band and at check in we get a KTTW card which is a back-up to the band, would the UT tickets be linked to the KTTW by default?

No they are not... Just don't have the resort add them to your KTTW card..

Any idea as to why you were printing "not a valid fastpass"? I've seen this from a couple people now and am trying to determine under what scenarios this is happening to people. I think the last one I read was when their magic bands weren't working so they were manually scanned, and then their KTTW card wouldn't work on FP machines. Any indication this is common?

Funny as others being told to do it .. Especially in light of this being a test and their still being MB issues.
