It happened to us. We had our APs on the Magicband and use it to get in the park.

When we tried to use our AP or KTTW card to get other Fastpasses, we got the not valid due to not using that ticket to enter the park.

When we asked why, we were told they were testing for the day they shut it down.

I spoke to GR this evening and we are supposed to be able to use both systems. They specifically told me to use both.

All this CM bull kills me ... Let them stop me when I try ... I don't need to hear any snarky comments I'm testing not them ... Just gets me mad that some take it the way they want and make up their own rules

My family has been here since the 4th. We are using magicbands with Aps linked to them to enter parks and do fast pass plus. I am also able to pull fast passes with aps and room keys.

I'm going to double dip tomorrow... We were at MK today and tried to make it work on our three FP+ and it was miserable. We have been on 10 crowd levels days and waited less! And tonight the system is a mess! I want the last hour of my life back...:

No CM comments and we all were wearing our MBA while using paper fast passes. I know the CMs had to notice because my 5 year old daughter kept trying to use her MBA in the fast pass line! We were at MK today and HS yesterday.

We had overlapping FP FP+ and any ride FP that we got from CM when DS6 had to suddenly go pee as we were to get on BTMRR and 10 any ride FP from a family that was leaving WDW that day (they were good for 3days). We never took our bands off. I think it's been said enough times everyone is preaching to the choir, the system is set up that way FOR NOW on purpose. So use it.

We used MB to enter and KTTW cards for legacy FP with no issues. If what you say is correct then we would not have been able to do this. Confused.

I don't know if it its cm bull.it sounds like maybe the testing parameters are changing daily and no one is really sure what is going on. Hence all the misinformation

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!
Thank you for the information! This makes me feel a bit better about when we go in a little more than 2 weeks.

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.

Sorry forgot to do this- THANKS!!! This will be really help!

Thank you. You know they are frustrated too and outraged guests is definitely not what they need.

Well I can understand guests being upset. My trip is less than 2 weeks away and I am regretting signing up for MB and doing all that nonsense now.
