I can't wait to see if they even inform me of this change when I check it. Im an ap holder too so those who wanted to know about pulling FP - with linked aps I'll be able to let know too. Here's hoping my 3 day weekend goes smoothly

We are here at Pop now and it is crowded. So surprised. Last night was crazy trying to get back from Magic Kingdom.

My BIL and his family checked in yesterday and were not told of the test when they asked if they could also get KTTWs as a backup. They were not able to pull paper FPs. I had told them this yesterday so they knew. They asked the CM standing at the FP machine why they couldn't get a FP and they said "you must be staying at Pop. They're the first resort to test FP+ only."

I wonder if anyone is going to switch resorts because of the KTTW/no paper FastPass thing. I know I wouldn't be happy seeing other people using FastPass+ AND FastPass while I could only use my lousy 3 +'s per day.

I'm sure some people are. I'd been trying to get a prefered room under the fall discount for a month now and nothing was available. The day this information came out I went and checked again and prefered rooms were now available. So I was able to get the upgraded.

I'm pretty sure your annual pass will still work in the FP- machines just like every one else's APs. This will only affect people who bought tickets with their package. They won't be getting separate ticket media to use for FP.

Well for me personal I would stay with the FP+ only option. We used the MB in August and never pulled a FP-. I guess for some it is a big deal but for me it wouldn't be. I guess we all have to get use to the 3 FP+ thing sooner or later anyway. But you think it would be the sang for all resorts.

It will be that way for all resorts soon enough. Disney has said all along that the FP- machines will go away. Right now they are testing non resort guests using the FP+ kiosks for same day reservations with the Swan and Dolphin guests. With this test for Pop guests they are making sure the system ID working properly that the KTTW gets you in the park, be used for dining credits, opens your room door but does not let you pull FP-.

My only issue is I park hop, I'm only going to be there for 3 days, limiting me to 3 FP+ in one park kinda puts a wrench in my plans
