One question

We are coming in Feb and will be staying offsite for the first time-boo hoo hoo. But if we didn't then we wouldn't be going to WDW next year. So will we be able to get Fast Passes if we do not stay on site?

Right now everything is in flux. They are currently doing testing of the FP+ system for off-property/local guests. IMO, that component will be available by the time you go, but that is just my opinion. Disney has not announced a date for off-property/local guest access to the system.

Right now the old, paper-style FP machines are still in the parks. You will have access to those if FP+ is not yet an option for you. Unfotunately, many have learned that you can double-dip (use multiple cards to get multiple FPs) in those machines and the availability is being affected.

Just keep watching these forums to get the latest information. As soon as anything new is announced it will surely be posted/discussed/debated here.

Thank you!

So it sounds like at some point off property guests will be able to access the FP+ system-just not yet. I hope things are a little more settled down when we're there. This all sounds very confusing & frustrating if paper FP availability is being affected by double & triple dipping.

Right now, I have a two reservations for Feb, one at AS Sports (with discount) and the other at the Swan (on points). Playing the waiting game before deciding what to do.
