I agree. I bet if KTTW (and someone mentioned AP not working) no longer pull FP-, the pool might be over 90% FP+ while those with physical tickets get 10%. They want to highlight how good the FP+ is for availability and ability to switch rides and that might mean eliminating the FP- pool almost altogether.

My sister has only been their two days and spent 9 hours in guest services trying to fix the disasters magic bands. First they couldn't get into the park (and they are still having problems with this issue) and their reserve FP didn't work.

They had to go back in line today and are still waiting in line to solve the problem of getting into the park. They are totally pissed off and I don't blame them. I have a Disney vacation planned in March and I'm thinking about canceling it. To spend all that time in line to solve issues is so wrong.

They have only been compensated with a free fast pass.

I would like to hear if other AP holders are not able to pull paper FP's or if this one person was having unique issues. If the AP's can't pull paper FP's, then that will affect many offsite guests.

jimandami,
Can you share your check-in date? I wonder if it is affecting only those with recent, or starting today, check-ins.
Thanks!

Checked in last night. I just pulled a FP for ToT with my KTTW card (plan to pixie dust it away) just to experiment. I will try with my AP in a bit and report back.

Seriously?? I am so sad that my sister hasn't had any luck like this. They fell on hard times and just started making money. They haven't been on vacation in 6 years and now they are having too many frustrations.

I'm glad it is working out for you.

With only 1? That's nuts. Thats what I mean about CS being all over. With knowing there will be problems they should have an across the board solution. I would be furious if I knew someone had gotten free upgraded tickets, FP and dinner while I got one FP. That is WDW biggest problem, how inconsistent they are with CS. People have high expectations because they treat some so good and then are even more upset when they get next to nothing.

I would imagine you will be fine if you do not intend on linking the AP or single-day tickets to a MB. Heck as random as all this is you may be fine even if you do link the tickets to a MB.

My friend had linked her AP to her MB and signed up for FP+. In theory, you aren't supposed to be able to use both systems (FP+ and FP-), but that has not been the case since they are still in testing. When she tried to get a FP- using her AP and KTTW card she couldn't. For what ever reason the system either recognized that she shouldn't be using FP- or the mag strip on both the AP and KTTW card didn't work.

Post I plan to check into ASMovies tomorrow....

As of now, I plan to check into AS Movies just before noon tomorrow. I have never spent time reading or posting on here while I am at Disneyworld, but I will come back and let you all know what I am told at check-in. If it is only newly affecting All Star Resorts and not Moderates, then I will not check-in and instead change resorts. There is plenty of availability. I would like one last trip with paper FP access, so it is worth switching resorts to me. I know others here may find that silly, but it is how I feel. Wherever I end up, I will try to post tomorrow night after I return from HS about whether any KTTW card issued to me worked in a FP machine. That is working on the assumption that there will be FP's available at some attraction for me to try for!

I have UCT tickets (maybe....another loooong story as the tickets were lost in the mail & I have to go to GS with ticket copies UCT sent me & receipt to request "replacements"). So I (hopefully!) will be able to post whether UCT replacement tickets issued at GS will work in the legacy machines, in case anyone cares about that aspect.

Thank you so much for taking the time while there to do this. So many of us here appreciate you for that.

You say this like it's a bad thing.

Sounds like our trips (although AP), except we prefer the to the SB lines since all FP- are long gone.

Do you think any class action lawsuits come out of this? People are spending a lot of money and are being hoodwinked.

Negative Better business bureau reports?
They may need to start considering putting those new interactive queues at Guest Services...

Can I say how absolutely relieved I am that I moved from ASMU to offsite for our upcoming trip?
