I agree that the reports seem to be all over the place with the only consistency being inconsistency. Some report they can't get FP- with their KTTW cards or AP passes, others still can. Others report they are noting getting cards anymore at All Stars. Maybe they are doing it now randomly by last name or blind draw, lol. Wish The Hub was here, maybe they know what is going on. And anyone else who said before that "Everyone knew about The Hub information already", please chime in now.

Maybe it's by check in date and each resort has a different day when it goes into effect.

If OFF site guests were using magic bands too with only 3 passes, then it would be fair.

I understand them fixing the machines to not allow old passes.
Unless they are converting resorts gradually as we speak...

I also believe that more and more of the fastpass pool would be input into the FP+ system with gradually very little left for offsite visitors. I wouldn't worry too much about them getting any kind of advantage.

By the way, I meant later comments and not the OP when I mentioned bait. I just wanted to clarify that.

You are the first reporting this. Just trying to know the details.
Sorry I haven't read the whole thread, but this is my experience.

Checked in to BC on Friday, rec'd KTTW card without asking. I have been able to use the KTTW card to pull paper FP every day. Friday at HS, yesterday at MK, today at Epcot.

We were at BCV and pulled paper passes in addition to our FP+ yesterday at Epcot and MK. Today we moved to Kidani and pulled both as well.

It basically sounds like OP had a glitch, and everything is the same.

Checked in to WL today. We were given KTTW cards without asking for FP- machines. We head to our first park tomorrow and will report back. We have separate ticket media, so we will try with both.

I mentioned early on in the thread that it might be a faulty KTTW that OP had. A few others have said they too can't get FP-. Maybe it is just a few people with glitchy KTTW or APs that have this problem

Oh my goodness. I just called the Disney number, they CLAIM that you certainly can not pull both FP+ and FP-. No way, no how. oh my. Now get this...she then says that people who come from OFF site can only get 3 FP- with their tickets and only in one park.
I gave up talking to her. I just called to see if she would admit their might have been a change Dec 1.
Oh my my my. I threw in a "so I can take the bus from Beach Club to Epcot, right?"
Yes of course she said. (lady, quit your day job.)

Pulled a FP- today in MK with our AP's which were linked to our magic bands. Worked! It wasn't needed at all as it was slow today but I noticed this thread in line and was curious. Worked for us!

We were also able to double dip since we arrived on Friday. We're staying at Coronado springs and received cards along with the bands that were shipped.

I wouldn't call the MK slow today it was pretty crowded. I only visit once very couple of years so maybe it just felt more crowded than it has in the past.
