That does sound amazing. It was like you were chosen as the Disney family of the week. You will always remember how good this trip was. You got pixie dust and your gift from Santa all mixed up in one huge adventure.

I was there Nov 30 - Dec 6 and could pull FP- with either my park ticket or KTTW. I was staying at AKL.

We also have RFID KTTW room only cards used at SSR in October 2012.

We may get KTTW cards from BWV?

Can we quadruple dip during the busy holiday season? I'll be checking : )) Before I get flamed, I learned about FP strategies from the Disboards. Otherwise, I'd be clueless!

Do we need to quadruple dip? Probably not. My kids are college and high school; they don't need the constant ride entertainment. Besides, we're rope drop people. The FP+ selections are in the evening for 3 out of 5 days. If we are able to pull FP- it's likely we'll give them away.

We are armed and ready!! Super excited!!!
Hopefully you don't get flamed. If those work for FP-, more power to you. Disney is screwing Value resorts right now so anything those guests can do to gain the same access as moderates and deluxe the better. It would be bad if everyone was on an equal playing field right now and you did some to exploit a loophole to gain an advantage, but Disney started this unfair practice. I'm at POP this Friday and only have 3 FP+, no KTTW like other resorts (Maybe Kenny the Pirate's FP+ method still works....).

Didn't read all but we literally just left. Double dipping was working fine for me. Not sure why OP had trouble, but heading of post is not true as far as I'm concerned.

Just left this morning and while we were able to double dip using our KTTW cards, we only did so maybe twice. The crowds were relatively low and we had FP+ setup for the rides we wanted to do (or at least thought we wanted to do as my 5 year old became terrified of all rides besides Small World which was closed after the 2nd day). The longest line we waited in was 15 min at Thunder Mtn late yesterday in the FP line because Splash had just gone down. Overall quite a few rides were down here and there this week. More than I noticed in the past but maybe because I was more connected with the MDE and Lines Apps. Still boggles my mind the people willing to spend 90 min in line to ride Peter Pan and other rides when FP / FP+ is available.

I wish we were gonna be there at the same time! I'd meet you and give you my hard tickets; really! I'm armed and ready out of curiosity. I'm all about testing the loophole : )). As I said before, we'd likely give away our FP-. I love to give away FPs!!!!

You're gonna have a big Disney time!!!!

Ok I stand corrected. It was not working on the weekend right after Thanksgiving when we arrived but started working again Monday. Strange!!

Others staying onsite have posted about pulling paper FP's right through yesterday, so that conflicts with what you were told. Maybe "they took it away" from Beach Club guests earlier this week? You are the first reporting this. Just trying to know the details.
It looks like it was just a weekend issue. Sorry for not responding sooner. We have been able to get them all week with our annual pass and room keys

Can you please update the subject line to reflect the apparent temporary glitch?
