I did hear today that CMs are now refusing to let people with MBs get legacy FPs in some cases. I also heard that if you request a separate KTTW card, it's a special one that doesn't work in the FP machine. To be honest, I suspect a lot of the issues right now have as much or more to do with people double and triple dipping than FP+ itself. These two measures would help preserve legacy FPs for the people who don't have access to MB.
I've been hearing about CM's doing that since the beginning, but it seems to be a random thing. The thing is that I have all the invite stuff from Disney and I read all the terms and conditions and not in one place does it say that in order to test the MBs and FP+ I have to give up regular FPs. It would be absolutely ridiculous for them to limit onsite guests (that pay more to Disney) to 3 while allowing offsite guests to have unlimited FPs. Not to mention the fact that there are still plenty of people who are having problems with the MB and FP+ so they need to be able to pull them if their bands aren't working without waiting on a line for 2 hours to get it straightened out. It is not double dipping to pull FPs with your KTTW card, it is double dipping (or even triple dipping) if people are also using AP or regular tickets or even old cards in addition to their KTTW card to pull more than they are entitled to for one day. I can't believe that people are even defending doing that. My old cards will be sitting at home where they belong, to get extra FPs with them would be like stealing them from someone else. To pull paper FPs with my regular (from this trip only) KTTW card would be the same thing I would be doing with KTTW card had I not been included with the test. I still don't understand why people think it would be OK to penalize people who are staying onsite by limiting them to less than offsite guests and I have no idea why people keep calling that double dipping. I pulled at least 7-8 FPs a day at MK, 5-6 at AK and HS and 4 at Epcot each day I was at those parks last time. I intend to pull the same amount this time (that includes the ones from FP+, not in addition to those).

If they are going to limit me to three I just won't go to Disney again. I don't do lines so it just won't interest me as a vacation destination. It would be one thing if it was nearby and I was just going a day here and there, but I'm not dropping 10 grand on a vacation to spend 8 days in lines.

They have not stopped giving out KTTW cards yet. There have been one or two people who claimed they didn't get them or had to ask for them specifically and a few people have claimed that they have has trouble pulling FPs with their KTTW cards (mostly at AK). In addition, a few CMs claimed that they were not supposed to use both, while other CMs said they are supposed to. If you call Disney you will get many different answers. The terms and conditions do not say that you can't have both.

You know, the ones that are saying that even with a FP+ time of 9am on Toy Story, they still had to wait over a half hour to ride?!

Maybe now that I'm all done planning and have itineraries printed out I should step away
Oh no I hope that was just a bad day

The first post on this thread lists everyone's dates and then the second post has a link to a page with the parks everyone is attending on the different days. If you want me to add you to that post let me know.

NOOOOOOOOO!!!
There is no getting sick in time for vacation.

Thanks for the reminder to use more germx and take my vitamins.

25 days to go.

Life is crazy around here. But I refuse to let it influence my mood and thinking and ruin the excitement of my up and coming vacation.



Hope everyone is able to minimize the germ contact and spreading.
Please do not share them over the internet with me.

3 weeks before the official packing for me.

This is stated perfectly. I never thought about it in those terms. If that's the way these vacations will be headed this is our last Disney trip.
