    Disney called - they want their secret formula back.

    Yes, I was able to-we bought the 4 day Florida resident Discovery Tickets and only used 2 days (have to use the pass by June 5). Stayed on-site last weekend and got Magic Bands. After I got home, I decided to check to see if I could get FP+ still and I could, up until 60 days out.

    Thank you, he is absolutely overly optimistic ...

    'Will it matter if you ride one less ride'

    Would it matter if you rode 5 less rides, or spent 5 extra hours standing in line if you wanted to do the same things on your next trip you did on your last ???

    Hell yes it would !!!

    Unfortunately (for research purposes,) that is still not quite the same thing as buying a NEW ticket for a new, separate trip (no on-site resort stay,) and being able to link that new ticket to MDE and make advance FP+ reservations with that new ticket

    I'm not saying that you can or that you can't (I don't know) but, I am pointing out that having "days left" on the same ticket that you used on the last on-site trip is kind of a unique situation.
    (And somewhat closer to having an AP.)

    ~You most certainly have, wdwfreak! I'm sure your efforts helped to calm the nerves and provide some reassurance to many posters with upcoming WDW trips! You're definitely the voice of reason here, as well. :goodvibes

    I came up with 3 as an answer. ;) But then I thought you actually might be trying to trick us. I find it ironic that the same formula was involved in the New Coke recipe. You are the ultimate trickster, my friend.

    I keep trying to use this and get nothing but negative numbers. Does that mean I have to give Disney a ride? :confused:

    I don't think many would fit in my Vibe. And pretty sure the rest would think I'm kidnapping Mickey. (Or is that 'mousenapping') :)

    I agree with that and that's what I was thinking. I think it would be more likely to work with "left over" ticket days that were attached to your account for the on site stay than an entirely new ticket. But it may work for both.

    Thank you. I was so frustrated but Josh's strategy makes it look easy. I'm going to book 2 rooms - 1 offsite and 1 on site. I will drop the on site if off site can book FP+ in advance, just like the on site. I feel so much about my trip after reading this.
