Your bands access your AP but your AP isn't on the bands which is wh it works for split stays when people have several MBS

The APs are on your account and the MBs access your account. Currently you have to have some form of admission on your account in order to get FP+s. so they have to have something on the account. If not the APs then what?

Right, I get that. Are some people's AP's ONLY on bands, without a card? It is normal, right now, for people who have AP cards linked to be able to use FP+ and pull FP-, correct?

I was able to tripple dip. I used my magic band for FP+ and was able to get fast passes for attractions using the Key to the Kingdom card as well as my ticket purchased from UT. I am here now.

Note: I didn't take advantage of this. We went with friends thay had regular tickets. We got their FP tickets using ours for them.

When we went in october we were surprised three days into the trip to find out that we could use our MBs to enter the parks. (Back when I put the aps onto the account it told me clearly to bring the physical aps to use to get into the parks) We had been using our paper APs. From then on we could use either. I wonder if aribelle is in the same situation as we were?

But the paper ones were for 7:50pm, lol. Oh well, we saw CP went to Soarin and rode twice then did Illuminations, so all was well with my world.

Kids are at MK today and they got Peter Pan, Space Mountain and some thing else on the FP+ terminal with their magic bands, then used their card AP and got another Space Mountain.


So....double dipping seems to work at EPCOT and MK....but I'm also really thinking it's because our AP's are NOT on our Magic Bands.

If your tickets (AP) are not on your magic bands, how can you reserve your FP+? I thought the APs had to be linked to your magic bands to pull FP+. I was under the understanding that you couldn't make FP+ reservations if there was not ticket media on the band.

I am MK now (way too packed for the first week of December) and MB and FP+ is working great minus a waisted hour Sat to get my moms military Salute tickets linked and FP+ synced to ours. Double dipping is still working just FYI. I'll post a semi full post later ( I will leave out some details that may get me flamed).

Yes, you should be able to use your physical tickets to pull FP-. The Fp- and Fp+ systems operate independently of each other.

don't you have tickets linked to your MB, which you need to make FP+ ressies? Didn't you use your AP's for that? And guests can use the physical AP cards to get FP- that are also linked on MB to get FP+.

What resort are you staying at, and what day did you check in?

Thanks.

Really? Well if the KTTW cards we get at check-in work then we're already covered, but just in case I'll take our UT tickets as well in the event the KTTW cards don't work. I don't invision needing to do it very often but if the option exists I'd be a fool not to take advantage of it if need be.

MBs/FP+/MM+ are all so glitchy that no one should rely on one report. You never know if it's a true change, or a glitch.

Great, thanks.

So at this point, I think we have only one report on this thread from a December 1 check-in, and one report from a December 2 check-in -- both with double-dipping working for them.
