    Hi.
    I read through the first page of facts and want to make sure of the following:

    My SSR reservations are as follows:

    January 4-5 in a one bedroom preferred view
    January 5-12 in a one bedroom preferred view

    I would prefer to keep my reservation separate as of now since I am coming in very late on January 4 and if I can find
    a full week on a monorail resort due to a last minute cancellation, it is much easier for my looking for a week (January 5-12) instead of
    January 4-12 (8 nights).

    Given above:

    My FP window opens on November 4, is this correct?
    I can book all my FPs on November 4 for January 4-12, is this correct?

    Thank you all very much!

    Correct to both if Nov 4 is exactly 60 days before January 4th.

    Oh, well then I am not sure, thank you.
    I thought it may be like booking DVC at 11/7 months out. I will look for the calculator somewhere. I didn't get the piece of mail
    "Welcoming me home" that gives me all the dates.
    Thank you for this information about exactly 60 days.

    Just found it so it is November 5, not November 4.
    Thank you.

    I have a trip December 1-4th then another January 27-5th. I have an annual pass so I can book up to 14 days for length of stay (will it count both stays or only first?), but I'm wondering if I am going to have trouble making the second set of FP? Is it going to recognize the two reservations and allow 14 days? Or will I be limited to 7 days?

    You shouldn’t have a problem booking for all days of your January trip.

    If the system limits you to less than all park days, contact the AP Help Desk. They’ve been assisting in booking FPs when problems have been noted.

    When I go to book fast passes (day 60) can my husband be logged onto my MDX account (from another computer) and try for FPs on a different day than what i'm trying for? Or does he need to have his own account, link it to mine and make FPs from his account? What's the easiest way to do this...trying to make sure we make the best of our time when he clock strikes :-)

    Yes. People who travel together only need 1 MDX account with Family members listed.

    When your 60-day FP booking window opens on November 5th you will be able to book for all park days Jan 4-12.

    We have had an on-site stay for Dec 1 to Dec 8 for some time. We were unable to get a decent rate for a room on-site for Nov 28, when we actually fly in, with check out December 1st, when new reservation starts, so we were booked off-site for those first three days. My DH and I have APs and my DD is a CM, so I was able to book 8 days of fps for DH and I and 4 days for DD (she is not on the resort reservation).

    Today my DD was able to get us an amazing price for Nov 28 with check out on Dec 1st at AKL, with her included on that portion of the reservation. I linked the reservation and see it on MDE. I am still unable to make any more FPS for either my DD or DH and I. Before I call AP services, this is not correct, right? I should be able to make FPs for the entire 11 night period for DH and I, and for the first three nights for DD, right?

    Yes and it can take up to a day before Resort info meshes with the FP system. Check later today or tomorrow.

    Thanks, hiro! I knew you would be able to help! Any idea why the system let me book four fp days for DD if she is not on the longer reservation?

    Your FP window opens her booking ability but she’s limited to the 4 days of FPs because of her CM main gate.

    She should be good for the AKL days but I’m not positive. Because I’m always offsite-onsite-offsite, we only pre-book using CM ticket media for 3 days at most.

    Quick split-stay question. For purposes of booking at 60 days, does it matter which reservation was in MDE when the tickets were purchased and added (separately purchased, not part of a package)? So for example, if my 7 day ticket was originally added when I had a 5 day reservation, that is now the second leg of my trip... will I be able to book FP+ for all 7 days when the new, 2 day reservation at the beginning of my stay opens for 60 day FP+? Thanks!

    I answered you in your other post.

    You are fine with your tickets and you can book as described in your other thread.

    May I ask this question about split/split/split stays? I did read the first page, so much great info!
    We originally had a (simple) split stay arriving Dec 31 for AKL for two nights followed by BC arriving Jan 2nd for nine nights. When Gifts of Magic discount came out I could only apply it to 2019, so AKL became two different reservations, one night each for Dec 31 and Jan 1, then on to BC for 9 more nights...so now it's three separate reservations.
    If you could clue me in, I think my Fast Pass window should open Nov 1 (?) for our arrival night, but after that I'm lost ..as far as how many days I can make and when?, Do I have to every morning.. maybe at least until the Beach Club stay kicks in?
    Sorry for having to ask but we haven't been to DW since old Fast pass, really looking forward to our next trip, and would appreciate any advice/help anyone could give.

    Thanks so much, and hope you all are having a magical day! :goodvibes

    60 days out from your first onsite check-in date, you’ll be able to book for all park days that end in January ONLY IF you have not booked a package for your BC stay.

    If BC is a package stay, you can only book for your BC park days.

    If I am at Park A and use all of my 3 pre-booked FP's, can I book a 4th FP in a different park for later than night, even though we have not checked in through the turnstiles yet?

    I'm in the midst of planning a trip that includes people outside of my immediate family for the first time and I want to make sure I understand how to book FPs for people we are not sharing a hotel room with. Here's the scenario:

    Me & DH have a room reservation for ourselves, and our friends have a room reservation for themselves. Both our friends are already listed on our friends and family page for the purpose of ADRs. However, they made their own room reservation so it doesn't show up on my account.

    I sent an invitation to link our MDE accounts. Will that be enough for me to be able to book their FPs for them? Or do I need to add their room reservation to my MDE account? I just want to be ready when the time comes to book!
