So after check in I can acquire fast passes for my entire party? How does that work? Don't they have a limited amount of passes for each time period? You copy fast passes to others in your traveling party? It's hard to understand how this could work?

Does anyone know how far in advance these FP reservations can be made? And I only need one ticket linked to make reservations for an entire group ?

Thanks for all the help- I very much appreciate it.

We are staying at boardwalk and I can't even find an option to book FP reservations. I linked the hotel reservation and my AP numbers.

When do you check-in? The Boardwalk is currently eligible for MyMagic+ for reservations with check-in dates from 10/7 to 10/31. MyMagic+ testing has not been opened up for November check-ins.

Sorry to hijack this thread. We don't have AP's but have paper tickets purchased from UT before the price increase. We plan on using these tickets for our trip in March. After I set up my account and link with DVC reservation, will I be able to add my tickets? Hoping to be able to try my magic +.

I believe most people have been able to link the tyvek (paper) tickets purchased from UT without much issue. There seems to be a problem linking RFID tickets purchased from UT.

Thanks for answering. I bought the tickets hoping to save some money since we have to buy six and am glad we won't be penalized.

Okay, not quite understanding that part, but both DH and I have PAPs we will activate in December. Our adult children are traveling with us, and from the above post, it looks like it would be best for us to go to the Disney store and buy their park hoppers NOW so we can also link them in the same way we did our PAPs.

This has been our issue. We loaded according to the numbers but its not letting us pick fasspasses. It shows that our tickets are there and that they are admission tickets, but then go to pick fasspasses and it comes up error.

Was on the phone with reps for about an hour, they tried loading and unloading but no go. They said to keep checking daily, or once we arrive the resort should be able to help us. Its a bummer but that is what testing is all about, no sense getting upset. Waiting for the magic to appear

If you can link all of your passes now that would save you a headache. I can't link my Green PAP to MDE account (it was an exchange from paper PAP to green PAP at the Odysessy Building in May). But the others in my party can and have linked theirs. I and others have been told we can just be "copied" on to other's FP after I link my PAP to my magic band at checkin. I did find this section on both the computer and my Iphone under "manage FP" and there you can change, delete, copy, etc . As long as everyone in your traveling party is linked together you should have access to do things for them. I've had no problem booking and changing things for both our reservation and my DD's reservation, however, you can control how much a linked person sees from your account and when my DH or DD pulls up my information, it does say only I can change it. They can only view. It's crazy and a learning experience for sure. I'm just trying to sort it all out before my trip in 3 weeks. Just trying to share the tips and info I've experienced so far while trying to learn how to use the system.

Does even person in the party need to have a linked ticket to make fast pass reservations?

Or can I make reservations for the entire party on one ticket?

How far in advance can the FP reservations be made ?

From what I've seen everyone you make FP+ selections for has to have a ticket linked.

What is a "Green" PAP? We traded in our paper PAPs for the plastic RFID PAPs in the Odyssey Building in April. Are you saying that we will not be able to link our tickets and book FPs in advance because we converted our passes? Our trip is in November at BWV, so this is assuming they will extend the FP+ option into November.

How far out is Disney allowing FP reservations for now? I would like to reserve passes as the earliest opportunity as we are traveling during Presidents Week- a busy time. When will (or is it already) February be available?

Right now it's still in test. The belief is that it will be 60 days out. February is not available now.

Everyone has to have some type of valid admission, in order to make FP+ reservations.

If your AP expires close to an upcoming trip you have planned, make sure you renew well in advance or you won't be able to make FP+ reservations.

My pass expired 2 days before our arrival. Usually I just renew when we're there. This time I had to renew online and was able to link up the renewed pass onto the MDE site and make FP+ reservations.

But this poses a problem I hope Disney will revisit at some time. Now I'm stuck paying (since we do monthly payments) double payments for this month and next month. Disney can't do a "rolling renewal" where they don't start charging you the next year's payments until the first year is over. Payments start from the date you renew.

Yes, we have the same pass. I have seen a few post where some folks were successful linking these exchange tickets, but not me, nor my friends who are meeting us there. I called the IT department and was told that there is a glitch and they can't be linked. They said they are working on it, so I keep trying. You can link your pass any time, so you should try now just so you know if it works or not, you can even try calling if it doesn't work. Like I mentioned earlier, when calling I was told I could make FP+ for my husband, who has a will call certificate and linked to my/his MDE account without a problem. I was told, along with others, that once I arrive and get my ticket linked to my account, I can copy his FP+ selections to myself....while I also question availability.....it's the only shot I've got, so will give it a try. I will post back after I check in Oct. 18th to let folks know if it was successful. However, after I made FP selections for my DH (only), I finally added tickets (PAPs) for my daugther and family and did go to manage FP+ and pulled up my DH's Fast passes and "copied" them to my daughter and family of 4 and it worked perfectly with no problems. Now all 5 in our traveling party (different room reservations) all have the exact same FP, except me....where it shows valid admission needed. However, our friends who are meeting us there, couldn't do anything since their exchange tickets could not link to their MDE account, so we are hoping to be able to copy them also on our FP selections on the days we are together.....again, it's the only thing they can do. BTW, my trip actually goes into November (2) and I made FP selections for those days too!
