Nope. I have a new outlook on it for us and our trip. It's a test. It is not meant to ruin my trip. I am trying it and have plenty of comments to share, but I am not going to stick to simply FP+ as it would and has adversely impacted our trip. I thought it would be a good thing, but I really didn't think enough about the word "test". Think "beta" versions. There are bugs and they want us to find them, but we don't have to limit ourselves to the system for our trip.

And I did get IT to solve my Epcot problem for tomorrow, but I didn't get the great TT time I had so I had to book something right before dinner (we leave in the afternoon). To be safe, we will be there are rope drop and get regular FP. It's just frustrating to have to call disney IT during my vacation and I basically missed the fireworks at MK since I was on hold for 5 minutes.

Not sure if you have tried...but the resort concierge is able to do a LOT with MB issues. They can access your FPs and make changes, can easily copy FPs for others in your party, print out your plans... They can also call IT for you if needed. They just dial an extension and speak to someone right away.

We've entered the parks every day with our bands and have had no problems getting regular FPs with our annual passes. We also used our room keys one day by mistake even though they don't have any park tickets associated with them. This was one of our best trips ever because of the band's.
Wishes tonight was wonderful and so was the parade using FP+.

If you have park hoppers, once you've used your 3 FP+ at one park can you add more through the MDE app for a different park? Sorry if somebody has asked this already, but I couldn't find the answer.

No, it is 3 total for the entire day, at one park only.

So, when you're in the park and you've used up your 3 pre-selected FP+ for the day, you can't even get an additional FP+ for the same park using the mobile app? Did you try this and it failed?

As of last Sunday we were able to pull regular FP with both our APs and room keys on top of scheduled FP+.

I had patience when I first signed up for the bands, because I thought that I would have fp- to fall back on duo no bug deal. now I find out that people are having problems with it and that would really bug me to not have it to fall back on, especially since it is an unknown and I won't know until I get there to test it.

why should testers be limited to three when non-testers are not limited? that isn't fair either. especially since it is a test and problems are occurring on a regular basis.
and it isn't the CM's job to make snarky comments. i would tell them to have a magical day... they need some pixie dust.

So we have MB and FP+, but how do we get paper FP? Are they still giving a backup KTTW? If so, what if I don't use it to enter the park? Doesn't the FP machine only work when a KTTW was used to enter the park that day?
