With the tiers moving feb 19 in hs is that the first day they physical start or when I do my fast passes on the 10th for my April trip will I be able to select the new tiers?
You can select the new tiers for your April trip when your booking window opens.

I must be having a blond moment because I’ve read the FAQ and still am a little confused. I am doing a split stay, with 2 RO reservations. I’m only planning on purchasing tickets for the second half of my stay. Will my FP window open 60 days before my first reservation without tickets or do I have to wait til 60 days before the second reservation which will start the date of my tickets? @JETSDAD

    Has anyone used the change party function(mentioned on page1) to change FP between members of same party? Does it only show up when in the park? Any help with trying to change FP's between members of party would be appreciated.
    Unfortunately the Change Party ability was removed in spring of 2018 (I believe that's when it was).
    You can just switch MBs. Once you're all in the park for the day, the CMs don't care whose MB is on whose wrist.

    When I was making FPs on a trip where I knew we were going to have to do rider swap, I designated an A group and a B group. They didn't change. But if one of the adults in A group wanted to be in the first to go on a ride that I'd booked for the B group, we just swapped the MBs. I agree it would be easier just to do it in MDX, but physically changing bands works, too.

    Thanks , I figured we could swap MB but don't they have to be scanned into the park to use FP? I have a couple of FPs with someone who may not come to the park now and want to change them to someone else in group. Specifically DD has become pregnant since made FPs and several of the rides advise against pregnancy and still dealing with morning sickness so she may not come to parks sometimes.

    Correct, they must have entered the park in order to be able to use their MB.

    Unfortunately she’d have to enter the park that day as @JETSDAD said.

    However, she doesn’t have to stay in the park. Once she’s in, her FPs can be used, even if she is no longer present.

    Keep in mind that all MBs issued to a guest are linked to the same account. If she has an extra band from a prior stay, she can leave one in the park for the rider, and still have one to open the room when she gets back to her resort. Both will work.

    And congratulations on the impending arrival of a new grandchild!

    Hi, @JETSDAD! in advance, in case you are the person to answer this question.

    I've got an AP and have a split stay booked. First night is at an All Stars (I gave myself an extra day when I saw that the difference in the price of the flight paid for the hotel) and the next 7 nights are at AKL.

    So . . . my question is:

    My 60-day FP+ booking day for the 1 night at ASMov is February 29th. When I go to book those FP+, will the system allow me to book 7 days' worth of FP+s since I'll be there for the next 8 days? Or do I have to wait until the following morning to book the rest of my FP+s since I have only one night booked at ASMov?

    And will booking FP+ for that one lone day--whether I can book 1 day or 7 days' worth--screw up the FP+ booking for the AKL stay? If it would, I'm going to lay off, because the AKL stay is far more important and I'll just do standby on day one if I have to.

    Perhaps this is clear. Perhaps it isn't! Help! Thanks!

    As far as I know you should be able to book your entire stay once your first window opens. You also should be able to book 8 days of FP's if you want because it is all onsite.

    It's actually 9 days in total--counting my initial arrival day and our final departure day. Still good? I'd just hate to book the FP+s on the first try and then get shut out of the 9th day. You know, gotta get one last ride on FoP before being forced to leave!!

    Oops, you're correct. I should know this because I do the same thing myself with an AP lol

    Yes, you should be fine. Personally, I would start at the last date anyways so then if for some reason it doesn't work out you've got those hard to get FP's locked up.

    This is where @hiroMYhero is going to be really missed......ticketing isn't my strong point.

    Ah, @JETSDAD. I'll start at day 9 and work backward. That is the best solution and I thank you for suggesting it.

    Is @hiroMYhero not around? What? No!

    So I am pretty sure I have been planning all wrong and now need some clarity after a different understanding of what I read.

    I check into my Disney Springs Hotel on 3/29. I have HS tickets for 3/30. All along I thought my 60 day window opened this Thursday 1/30. I am now reading and thinking I can actually book tomorrow Wednesday 1/29 at 60+1.

    Can I book tomorrow at 60+1 because of my resort check-in date or do I have until Thursday which is 60 days out?

    Yes, 60 days before check-in you can book FP's for your whole trip.
