Oct-Dec DLR AP hotel discount + free fastpass question

Back in October, we booked a 2 night stay at the GCH using an AP deal for this weekend. The deal includes a free fastpass for each guest. Does anyone know whether the free FP's can be used at RSR? We've had the free FP's with stays in the past, and they were good immediately instead of having to wait. Does anyone know if that's the case with these FP's? Do we have to take the card to the FP machine to get a RSR FP? Does that mean we have to use the card early in the morning, before the FP's run out? Just want to know how to make the best use of this feature, since it's pretty much the only perk we're getting for the exorbitant rate we're paying for the hotel.

The way it was explained to me by the CM on the phone was you will get a voucher when you check in. Voucher is good for any attraction with fast pass. So RSR should work. We plan on using it for that. We check in Thursday night. I'll report back. You should also be getting a voucher for a free photo pass photo.

Yes it works for RSR. It works for rides w/ FPs.
We used it last Monday on RSR.

Sorry didn't read it all. You can use the pass anytime of day. We used it about 90 minutes before close. No issues

Thanks everyone! It's a relief to know I don't have to take the voucher and wait in the 45 minute RSR FP distribution line to get a FP before they run out. This means we can enter DCA early in the morning, ride everything else while everyone else is in Carsland, and enjoy RSR later in the day at our leisure.

I know you already got your answer but just wanted to add that we used ours 3 days ago at RSR. The ride broke down while on the ride and then when it started again we didn't race anyone so we got to ride it again. I love this ride, but wish it didn't brake down so much.

Thanks everyone - those fastpasses worked great! We were able to check into the GCH at 6 am, grab a quick snack in the concierge lounge when it opened at 6:30, get into the park for early entry at 7, and ride TSMM, Screamin', ToT, Luigi's Flying Tires and RSR (using the special FP) all before 9 am.
