FP+ FAQ Update - No FP- for FP+ Users

was the fp+ faq updated? it now states that if you are eligible for fp+ and enter using magic bands, you may not pull regular fp. i don't recall this being officially said before. it also does not specify how many fp+ selections you will have. it looks like the faq has been both updated and expanded. always this way or new?

When I read through the fine print over a month ago it did not say that. Can you provide a link to the new wording?

Wow, sounds like they are definitely about to disable pulling FP- with your key to the world card. They do say that you can still pull FP- using tickets though so they are only penalizing people who buy packages it seems. I do not see that particular FP+ FAQ on the website though, only on the app.

i noticed that. on the website, it leaves that question off, and it includes one that says how many fp+ you may get. on the app, it does not include the question about how many you get. interesting.

Yes, I looked through the FAQ on the website and didn't know anything different. But I don't have the app. No smart phone and won't work on our tablet that I bought in part to be able to use MDE.

Since I never looked at the FAQ on the app before I don't know if it is new, I know I never saw it in the FAQ in the website or in the fine print I read when first getting my MBs and FP+. The app was updated today so it may be knew. The wording is awful. Why would they reward people who bought their tickets from outside vendors and limit those that bought packages. I go on the 13th and I'll report what I find then.

Not bad for my first screenshot. I didn't know you could link directly to a picture in your dropbox though, that would have saved me a LOT of steps.

So....

I made FP+ selections with an Undercover Tourist ticket. I would rather use the legacy FP than FP+ system. To do so under these new rules, I enter the park using my UT ticket and pull FP's from the machines. Correct? It looks like an either/or situation now. (I have used both FP systems & much prefer the original.) I don't mind opting out of the FP+ since it looks like I have a choice. I guess my question to others is....is that how you read it? If you enter using a theme park ticket you don't have to use FP+?

Sorry to be dense.

That is how I read it too. Of course so far they have not been limiting you to one or the other, but it sounds like they will be starting soon and is sounds like you need to have separate tickets to make FP- work.
