    Dumb question, I searched for answer and didn't see it.

    The last time we went (2015) the 60 day window actually opened up about an hour after the last park closed for the night. I think I make our reservations around 2am my time for our last trip. Is it a hard 7am ET time now or does the window still open up early?

    7:00a ET except in certain unusual circumstances. The first posts, including Post #3 quoted below, have been updated since 2015. :)

    Sorry I didn’t realize how confusing my post was. We used our anytime FP for mission space which replaced our FP for tt. I can’t remember if we waited standby for tt later or if we were lucky and got another FP after checking on the app. Does that make sense?

    That’s what we did. Woke up at 5:30 although dh pulled an all nighter. We were logged in on our phones by 5:45 and refreshed right at 6:00

    I am sure the answer is in this thread somewhere but can't seem to find it. Asking for a friend who has a room only split stay booked currently with tickets purchased separately. If he makes his FP at the 60 day mark but then later has to cancel the first part of his stay will he lose the FP that he already made? We almost always have AP so I don't know the answer to this. Thanks.

    would they have to personally check into the hotel and show ID?

    No, they don’t even have to show up at the hotel because you aren’t using the CM for a room discount.

    The CM is just using the fact that his name is on the room reservation and It gives him a 60-day Booking window for all the Guest Passes.

    You have to remember most CMs never stay onsite so they don’t understand 60-day booking windows. My CM friend stays onsite with me because I always pay for the discounted room. ;)

    Yeah see THAT is the problem!! I do not think they truly understand how it works. So frustrating lol!! I just decided to purchase the tickets ugggg!! I just think it would be easier then depending on them to set FP's and inconveniencing them by having them meet us at the crack of dawn each day at the parks to get us in. This way they can meet us when they want to and at their leisure and we could raid my Disney Experience to make sure we get the FP's we want at the times we want. Sometimes I think the people on this board know way more then the CM's lol!!

    It is possible you modified the TT FP to a later time and used that right? It' my understanding you don't lose that FP and it' up to you to modify it.

    As far as I remember they replaced it with an anytime FP. I don’t think we got to keep the tt because we got an anytime FP instead.

    My understanding is the anytime FP is a bonus and the original is not replaced and you are free to modify that as you can. I'm pretty sure this is what happened to us when BTMR was down on our last trip.

    It happened to us two years ago so I honestly don’t remember for sure.

    If you're talking about getting an anytime FP for a ride being down then it replaces the original FP rather than being in addition to the FP.

    I thought I was going crazy for a second. I was pretty sure that’s what happened to us but had myself second guessing for a bit.

    Sorry all, I don't mean to beat a dead horse here but these 2 statements above seem to be in contradiction to each other. One implies that in the case of a down ride that u have a FP for, the anytime FP replaces the original. The other implies you keep the original and the anytime FP is an extra bonus.
