Are those the only things that will be available for FP+ or are the two totally unrelated?

The only things that show up as eligible for "show in my plans" are timed entertainment events--fireworks, parades, Meet and Greets, etc. So I'm wondering if those things are totally separate from FP+ or are they related? Anyone who has recently made FP+ selections, where they related to what you could add as "show in my plan" on itinerary?

Thanks!
Those are not FP+ reservations. That's just a general plan you can add to your day. It will specifically say "this is not a reservation" or something like that. So totally unrelated.

Right at 60 days and got all the rides and times I wanted for our trip starting Dec. 20th.
I could not find where you could also get spots for the fireworks ...
Does anyone know where on the site you can do that ???

I could not make anything for our second trip that month starting on the 30th but I would guess I will be able to do that when the 60 day mark comes up.

Was just able to customize magic bands for Pop Century December 8th this morning.

That's our third and final set for this trip

They don't seem to have the fireworks ready past the first week of December at this point. I got Fantasmic for December 11 but can't do Wishes or Illimunations yet.

FP+ for 4-7 with only MVMCP ticket?

Sorry to bring this up again, but I want to absolutely certain I'm not messing up my MB-attached tickets. The issue is that I have extra park tickets already attached to my MB that we will NOT be using this trip (yeah, I now realize I shouldn't have done that, lol).

Can someone confirm that using ONLY your MVMCP tickets to enter MK, you are still allowed to use FP+ from 4-7? And that this will not somehow activate my unused park passes attached to my MB?

I'd love to know this also. I'm in the same situation.

So I linked my MVMCP tickets to MDE and did FP+ for 4-7 on that day. However, I've been reading about the issues with this and now I'm concerned about hitting issues when we're there. Our party tickets are DVC, so right now all I have is a Will Call voucher. I used the voucher number to link the tickets. Does anyone know if when we go to Will Call we will get hard tickets that we could then use to enter the park and not our MBs? We also have 4 Day passes on our account and we will have only used 1 day of the 4 day ticket when we go to mvmcp so I'm worry about if we have to enter with MBs that it will use a day from the 4 day and not the party ticket.

So I was able to customize my Magicbands this morning.

The problem is, I'm doing a split stay and the Disney website wants to give me two sets of Magicbands (so four bands for two people), basically a set corresponding to each hotel stay.

Does this mean I have to use two sets of bands or can I just link all the reservations and fastpasses to one set? Either way, it seems like a waste to have two seperate sets of bands for one vacation.

Anyone else experienced this?

Disney seems to be sending out a set for each resort stay even if it's a split stay. But since they link to the info on MDE you should be able to use whichever of the two bands you choose. So if you just want to take one set with you then you should be fine.

2 yr olds?

Does anyone have any experience with FP+ and a child that does not need a park ticket? My daughter will be 2 this trip but tall enough to go on most rides but MDE won't let me add FP+ for her because she does not have/need a tickets. I am thinking they will just waive her through with us but I'd like to have confirmation that that is the case.
Thanks!

I've heard mixed reviews on this so i'm wondering the same thing.

We have 4 day MYW tickets and are visiting parks 2 days before the party & 2 days after - I don't want to arrive to MK on our last day and find out that we have to buy another ticket because 1 of our MYW 4 day passes was used to enter the park on the night of the party.

Since we aren't going until 12/17, i'll see if anyone reports about it during the parties in November.

Yeah I've got two sets available as well. One on each wrist?
