More FP+ Testing

WDW will be conducting more FP+ testing from December 11 to 15. The interesting thing about this test is that it will occur at MK and DHS, do it will be the first time they've tested it at two park at once.

Also, I think it will be similar to previous tests where DME guests can reserve the rides online. Can't wait for some love reports!

What do you think?

~Thanks for the update, andyman8! This is SO exciting! I think it's very important to test during the busiest time of year! The earlier tests that were conducted this year, were a bit inconclusive, imo, just because it was very slow in the parks. I read many reports where people didn't find it necessary to use FP+ -- testing this in December will really put FP+ to the test, and *hopefully* people will appreciate it a lot more. We'll see!

Interesting. Pretty short time period, but maybe they expect a lul those dates before the holiday crowds.

Looking forward to DHS reports.

If it's like the last test, use Magical Express and hope they offer it when you arrive.

ok, please don't laugh but what's Magical express? You mean the bus service from the airport? What does that have to do w/the fast pass? TIA!

Yay! We are there the 13-17. Crossing fingers we are selected! We were there Sept. 16-22 and weren't chosen for the initial test but the two other families we were with were chosen and liked it. We are using DME too...

By mail, really? Fingers crossed we get picked because we are 11 days out. How do I know if I'm registered for magical express. I'm pretty sure we are since I believe it's on Disneys site when you log in.

You would have signed up when booking your trip. You give them your airline info and about a month out, you should have received a packet in the mail with the yellow sticker airline tags and booklet.

You should have luggage tags and your DME passes by now if you are registered.

Got this email and made our FP+ "reservation" times and rides selections! We are extremely excited to see how well FP+ will work and if it makes any difference to our vacation!

It would be awesome if you could post a screen shot of the email. You could block out any personal details.
