If this advisory is indeed true, I'm pretty upset by it. Just because I'm staying at Pop, I get limited to 3 FP+ selections per day and they have to be in the same park? While other Disney resort guests can get their 3 FP+ selections AND FP- selections in any park they care to hop to in a single day?

And non-Disney resort guests can get more than 3 FP- passes (if they know how to use the system wisely) while I, who is likely paying more money for my room than they are, get none?

Is Disney kidding me?

Can you change to a different resort last minute? Do they even allow that so close?

I dunno...I think this part can go much more quickly.

This statement makes me think that off site guests will be able to use the service but just not ahead of time so they would do it when they arrived at the park.
Yep, it does sound like that.

Agreed. I think they can add resorts to this process really quick.

Not that it matters, but I just got back from Pop and we only used the Magic Band.

They gave us cards Friday night, and said keep these on you because the Magic Band system is new. Basically - Magic Bands aren't reliable yet.

I understand peoples gripes, but I honestly think it is the coolest thing. Once it gets perfected it will be super convenient - I got a crazy pic though of a guy wheeling in what looked like 500 magic band boxes into Pop around 2am Friday while waiting to check in. He had a golf shirt with the MDE Mickey logo on it... Two massive carts with Elastigirl boxes on em.

Not me. I'll take whatever life throws at me and work around it. I'm determined to have fun no matter what.

I agree about the MB's. The technology and what they plan to do with them looks amazing. That part will fit into the Disney experience rather nicely.

Okay, I don't know if I buy this, but here is a link to a thread I did when MBs came out for the resort MB release dates http://www.disboards.com/showthread....t=current+list. Anyone who wants to know where their resort fell on the coming out party. Hope this helps.

Oh boy. If anyone thinks there have been a lot of complaints about FP+ already, I'm betting they haven't seen anything compared to what's about to happen!

We used Magic Bands and FP+ on our trip in September, and we actually loved them and think FP+ is awesome. But while FP+ is great in addition to legacy FP, it's not ready to be a complete replacement. I was really thinking that they'd fix the "one park per day" thing, as well as increase the number of FP+ per day before taking legacy FP options away. Guess not. Yikes!

Who has been saying that it wasn't going away? The only question has been when.

That would upset me too if I was counting on using FPs.

If I were in your position, and had already received MB's with the expectation that I would be able to use both FP+ and FP-, I would bring that up at check in and ask to talk to a manager if they won't give you an RFID enabled KTTW card. It can't hurt.

So what do you think, maybe 1-2 resorts a month added?

I agree. I think this will be an accelerated process. I am guessing we'll see every resort doing this by Christmas crowds.
