    So can you use the MNSSHP ticket to book FPs in the MK (or any other park) before 4:00 PM? Or is this another 'Disney cutback'?

    No one knows how it will work for 2018. In the past couple of years it was for MK-only with FPs booked for any window prior to the park closing.

    Only in MK, only between 4 and 6, and last year availability was spotty - some people could, some people couldn’t.

    I have an upcoming stay in September (package with room & tickets). So I'll be getting new Magic Bands. I also have some older Magic Bands from 2015 associated with a different Disney account. Questions:
    1) Should the 3 year old Magic Bands still work?
    2) Can the older Magic Bands with no associated tickets be used once in the park to get a second set of FPs?

    Apologies in advance, since for sure this question is answered in this thread, but, you know, 206 pages' worth of stuff!

    My sister made her FP+ reservations for herself and now I may go along with her. I'm guessing there's no way I can be added to her FP+s, right? I'm on my own? Thought I'd check in case there's some magic here that I don't know about.

    Have your sister go to each booked FP and Select Change Party - this works if you are listed or linked to her MDX account AND if there is still availability for the Attractions. She adds you if there’s availability.

    If not, try to book FPs with similar or overlapping windows,.

    Thanks, hiroMYhero. A lot of her FP+s are for FoP, and I already checked and there's no availability, so I kind of doubt there will be when she goes to modify. But she can give it a go anyway.

    We did our FPs yesterday, and when I tried booking FOP for the fourth day of our trip, the earliest thing I could get was 1:45 PM :/ So at least in May seems very popular.

    Question about the booking window - I am staying 6/1 to 6/11 at the Boardwalk and bringing another family, so I'm doing all of the fast passes. When I go in, it only shows within 30 days... will this change to 60 days by 4/1 for my booking window or do I need to call Disney?

    Your FP day is April 2nd! As long as you have a ticket and are staying onsite your 60 day window will open.

    From the Booking Window section of this thread’s OP:
    • For onsite guests with a room-only reservation, the 60-day prebooking window will not appear until the 60-day mark, assuming valid tickets are attached to the account. Before this point only a 30-day window (from the current day) will be active, again assuming valid tickets are attached to the account. It is possible to practice booking FPs using this 30-day window.

    60 days doesn't equal 2 months. Since May has 31 days, your 60 day mark will be April 2.

    I have a FP+ question about our specific day in Epcot - we have 8am PPO b'fast at Garden Grill and plan on being out of there bu 8:45am - if we leave there and go to A&E in Norway, to ride stand-by what time should I make a TT FP+ if we want to ride it first stand-by and then use a FP+? Last trip the ride was down on our Epcot morning so we lost out on TT and A&E opened 2 days after we left!

    ugh..

    and perhaps I have ONE more question about our day in HS..

    we land at MCO at 7:50am and will head over to HS after stopping by the WL (via DME) and we have a 11:45am lunch ADR at 50's PT - we would love a FP+ for TSM but we're thinking it will only be stand-by....which mean's we'll get a FP+ for RNRRC...and after lunch might try TSM - if we decide to leave and head to Epcot (or another park) and I've only booked the 1 FP+ for RNRRC, am I understanding it correctly that I can make my 2nd & 3rd FP+ at a different park while I'm still in HS?? But I book them that day for the different park (after I've scanned into the FP+ for RNRRC) and I can't book 2 different parks for the same day at my FP+ window 60 days out..I just book the first park and then when I'm in that park I book the 2nd park...

    FP+ rules have changed so much since our last trip 2 years ago!

    thanks!

    Yes. That specific info is in the FP FAQ ADDENDUM Sticky that’s linked in @mesaboy2 ’s Signature.

    I am going to purchase three day Florida Resident passes for my trip late April. Do I need to wait to make fastpasses until I activate them at the park that first day? I assume I do all that on the app.

    Will I then be able to make fast passes for the next two days?

    No. Once you link them to your account, you can make FPs immediately but with the normal restrictions (30 days offsite, 60 days onsite).

    We are going on a trip with a couple. They’re staying with us I sent both of them an invite on MDE. Do they need one or two MDE accounts to book FP?
