Nope. That is how the system is designed ~ 3 FP+ and when you have used them up, standby only for the rest of the day.

The FP machines are not checking for the ticket used in the machine - if it was used to enter the park. That has been turned off during this test.

Thanks. If it still works next week, I'll use my KTTW card to pull paper fast passes. IMO this is a very bad design. Anybody who pays for park hoppers should be able to get FP+ at more than one park, just like they can with the FP-. I hope Disney changes the design before they eliminate the paper fast passes.

I agree. If I park hop and can only get fast passes at one park, I will be ill. Happy to be in my happy place, but Ill. I will report back while I am there next week. The countdown is on!

Are really old KTTW cards still working in the FP machines? Say, from 2012 or 2011 or 2010?

If so, that is crazy!!!

I am going later this month and I plan on using both my AP and KTTW card to pull fastpasses if/when the FP+ system implodes.

At MK today. Happy to report both old and current cards worked in FP machines.

I have a question:

My husband and I both have AP that we have linked to our MB for our 11/2 stay. The cast member I spoke to encouraged us to bring our AP hard tickets so that we could take advantage of the AP discounts if we wanted to.

We have booked 3 FP's a day for the length of our stay.

Will i be able to use my hard AP to book an additional FP? That seems a bit unfair.

We are part of the November FP+ testing and honestly, DH and I really tracked and reviewed our FP selections from past trips and how many we would get per day and we agreed the 3 was on par with our past trips. We also tend to hop a lot and find that we will spend a morning in one park and the evening in another.

Either way we did feel that 3 was perfect for that way we tour parks. Just curious more than anything.

[*] You can use MDE to book FP+.[*] The hard AP can also be used in the 'old' way...to pull FPs manually and receive paper ticket return times.

If you only use MDE and FP+, your 3 FPs are for one park only per day. If you think 3 are enough, just know that if you park hop - you will only be able to use FP+ at one park per day.
[*] Everyone can use the old FP system.[*] Testers for MBs can also use FP+.

You can't "book" more FP+, but you can use your KTTW/AP to get legacy FP. Why do you think that is unfair?

During this phase, those not testing are able to use legacy FP and have the ability to pull more than 3 FP. What wouldn't be fair is if testers were limited to three while everyone not testing has no limitation.

They just dial an extension and speak to someone right away.
I didn't... We are staying at BLT so we never go by any concierge since we got straight to monorail, bus or walk to MK.

We accidentally discovered that KTTW cards from at least March 2013 were pulling FP from the machines. It was totally by accident though, I had misplaced my KTTW card and then found it. Turns out it was from March, but it still worked.

You're right I hadn't really thought of it that way. I'm thinking like everyone is on the new system and only some people are able to double dip. But then again it will allow you to get two FP during the same window. Ehh...not a big deal to me now that I look at it from a different angle but there may be people that feel it's an unfair advantage.

I do feel the three is good, but it does bother me that a park hopper or AP doesn't get you at least 2 other FP+ reservations at another park. You pay extra to be able to hop, you should get an option to schedule FP+ at another park.

Not sure how it is unfair when people staying off site can pull fast passes all day. Why should I be limited to three when I give Disney more money by staying onsite? I pull way more than 3 FPs a day, and I wouldn't go back if I was really limited to 3, I can't do lines. Now, I have no problem with them limiting advanced FPs to 2 or 3 a day, as long as I could still pull additional FPs the day of as I use them.

I don't think it is right to use old media to pull FPs though. I think you should pull FPs for as many tickets as you actually purchased for use that day. Anything more is essentially stealing slots that other people should have access too. I just wouldn't do it. My old KTTW cards will stay at home, but I intend to use my KTTW cards from this trip to pull as many FPs as I can.
