    The 0% financing works that way at Disneyland (with the Good Neighbor Hotels there). It's plausible that it could work at WDW too. My fear is that Disney would tell you to ask Chase, and Chase would say ask Disney!

    I have no input but other than to say I have thought about the Doubletree Suites for our family of 6 for a future trip but the nice Disney pools seem so much better! I have fond memories as a child of going to Disney and staying at Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress. Their pool was awesome!

    Has anyone been able to do 60 fast pass+ and not booking through Disney travel? I just reserved my room with undercover tourist for May at the Wyndham Garden. I can't link it yet as it says it may take up to 24 hrs. But even if I get it to link, does that mean I have the 60 day window? I've never stayed off-site before. I am assuming you could never link a reservation for off-site hotel before this new thing?? I'm just worried that when my 60 opens up in March, it will say I have to wait until 30 days... We got a great price at $75 a night during memorial day. The same "package" thru Disney was several hundred more.
    I have chatted with 2 CM's. Last week I was told they were working on the system but it would eventually be linkable and I should get all the perks. The one I talked to today said that I would NOT get the 60 FP+ or EMH unless I booked with Disney travel. I asked her to make sure of that because I was told something different last week and she came back with "all external Wyndham Lake Buena Vista and Wyndham Garden room only bookings are now linkable to My Disney Experience as well. With the purchase and linking of tickets Wyndham guests will be able to make FastPass+ selections 60 days in advance" I am assuming the "all external" means booking outside of the Disney travel??

    Yes. And once your Confirmation links to the MDX system, your 60-day FP booking window for length of Stay will open when you are exactly 60 days out from Check-in.

    Hopefully they will have this fixed soon. My reservation at Holiday Inn Disney Springs still won't link up. I keep calling every few days. The CMs are being more consistent now in their response that we will get 60 day FPs and EMH, just have to hope for some pixie dust that it is ready in time for our 60 day booking :tinker:

    I’m happy for those going in the future. My trip starts March 6. I mentioned in my email that had I known I would have planned differently. By the time I realized we would not have the same benefits as the Swan & Dolphin it was too late.

    Oh well. Not going to let one attraction spoil our trip.

    Hilton LBV, Hilton Buena Vista Palace, and Doubletree Suites now work. You may need to wait a day for the confirmation code to get loaded into Disney's systems, but you can now link the Hilton confirmation codes directly.

    I am so relieved to hear that the 60 day FP is up and working!!
    I reserved Wyndham Garden thru undercover tourist and was able to link my reservation. It took a few days for it to show up on Wyndham’s reservations and then a day to upload to Disney. $75 a day during Memorial Day!! I can’t even tent camp at FW for that price!!
    Now I’m confused how the magic bands will work?? I know we don’t have charging privileges but do they work the same way as staying on site? Like park tickets (when linked to MDE), FP+, memory maker??
    And can we use Disney transportation? Like monorail from Epcot to MK?

    If you have or buy MagicBands they work just like they did before except no hotel key, no charging to room, no dining plan. We stay offsite often and use our MB all the time for tickets, FP+, Photos ....... They are linked to your MDE not your hotel.

    ANYONE can use the Disney transportation, no tickets even needed.

    It looks like the Holiday Inn Disney Springs was added as well. However, it has added phantom guests onto my reservation and is refusing to let me add the stay to My Disney Experience due to the fact that it seems to think I should have 4 people when I only have 2! I will be calling (again!) to get this straightened out.

    I booked 1 night directly with the B Resort (no package/tix) and inquired yesterday about linking the reservation for 60 day FPs and here is the reply I received:

    "Thank you for contacting the Walt Disney World® Resort! If you booked a room and ticket package through Walt Disney World® at the B Hotel, you would have access to start booking FastPass+ 60 days in advance. However room only reservations, booked directly with the hotel, would be able to book 30 days prior to arrival."

    Not getting my hopes up as appears to be mixed messages coming from Disney. 60 day window opens in about 2.5 weeks.

    Thanks for the information. I tried to link my B Resort reservation too. It’s confusing how many different responses people are receiving from Disney.

    Update for the Holiday Inn - it is officially linking. It would not work for me to link directly through My Disney Experience, but when I called and spoke to a CM she was able to link it for me. It is now showing up in the app under my reservations!
