    If they don’t have an MDX account, link their tickets and book FPs for everyone as a group. Your window allows you to book for them.

    You can also link their room reservation but it isn’t necessary as long as their tickets are linked and you book FPs for the complete group.

    One of the two does have an MDX account and their tickets are on that account, not on mine. Will it still work?

    You’ll have to invite each person to link up to your MDX in order to book FPs.

    Okay thank you! I'll have the friend who doesn't have an account make one and then I'll do the FPs that way. I appreciate your help :D

    The friend doesn’t need an account. You invite through the account where they are already listed.

    Oh okay I guess I misunderstood when you said I would need to invite each person to link. So I will just make sure the one friend (who has the other friend on her account) and I are linked. Thanks again!

    The second person still needs to be invited through the other’s MDX account because that’s where the person and ticket are managed.

    Just go to each person in your Family list and invite them.

    Hi there! I have a question about timing the FPs, will MDE allow me to book a FP that is 2:10-3:10 and another one at 3:10-4:10? or do I have to allow more time in between the FastPasses? Thanks so much!!!

    Ok we all know the app is crap. (Here now) My FPS for FOP disappear or Na’vi. It takes turns. Just because it isn’t currently showing on the app, it will still be there when I scan my mb correct? Thanks!

    Unless the entire MDX system is down, you should be fine.

    Has anyone used the Multiple Experiences Fast Passes? Says they are basically bonus fast passes loaded go our MDE for redemption? I just logged on this morning to double check things since were 4 weeks away and I see we each were given 3 extra fast passes! I did a quick search and looks like I don’t prebook these I just go to fast pass line when I wanna redeem??

    Yes, I’ve used the Anytime FPs and I also wrote the following info...

    From the FP FAQ ADDENDUM:
    Anytime FPs/Multiple Experience FPs

    If you receive an Anytime FP due to a ride closure or as Guest Recovery from a CM, treat it as a Bonus FP - it doesn’t count as one of your initial 3 pre-booked FPs.

    As soon as you receive the Anytime FP for a downed ride, go into MDX and book another regular FP to replace the FP for the downed ride to complete your total of 3 initial FPs.

    Use your 3 initial FPs during their true hour-long window and save your Anytime FP for a ride of your choice as described by the Anytime FP - there may be restrictions and exclusions.

    You must use (or allow to expire) your initial 3 FPs before you can book FP#4. You’ll be able to book FP#4 even if you are saving your Anytime FP to use later in the day.”

    I dont have any package with a room. I just have tickets for one day. 31 days from today. I know I cannot book fast passes today or even “practice”
    However, can I do nothing? I cant link my party together?
    I get to a screen that says “not so fast” - valid theme park admission is required. THen I have all the members of my party - including me. I click on “link ticket” and then I add in my email confirmation number of my ticket purchase. And it says “this has already been assigned to another ticket”
    Will this all be cleared up by tomorrow?

    I read the first 10 pages and the last 10 pages of this thread and I think this post is most related but you specifically answered “because you have a package” so I wanted to confirm since I only have tickets.
    Last time we went, my travel agent booked my FP.

    This post is amazing, I just wish MDE was more clear. Why not say “not so fast - your day hasn’t arrived yet”

    How recently did you purchase your tickets?

    I currently have a fp+ for TSM and one for TOT. I have not booked my third tier 2 yet, because I am still undecided and I want to leave times open in case I find a SDD I can change my TSM to. Do I need to go in to modify TSM in order to see any available fp that might pop up for SDD or can I just go to add fastpass and if one happens to be available it would show and then allow me to cancel my TSM fp+?

    I think it would show going in either way, but since I'm not sure I thought I better ask if I have to be on Modify. And, if (I know it's a big if) SDD becomes available at any time the day I am looking for, would it show right below any TSM (the one I'm modifying) times that are available regardless of what time slot I'm checking? Morning, afternoon, evening or 9:00am? I hope I'm making sense! Thanks!

    Yes, you need to modify your existing tier 1. Once you have a tier 1 booked, you cannot see other available tier 1s when booking your tier 2s. It will say something like “you’ve already booked a FP in this category” and the other tier 1s will show unavailable on the booking page. And the modify function will not show any overlapping times. So your best bet to see anything and everything would be to have no tier 2s booked.
