    You can add another to replace the one you had. So if you had 3 FP's, used 2, and then the 3rd ride goes down, you get an anytime FP and the 3rd FP disappears. You can then add a new 3rd FP. That 3rd FP would still follow the tiered restrictions that the original had. Now if the ride happens to come back up and there happens to be availability you could add it back as your 3rd FP and still have the anytime FP.

    Once the system gives you an Anytime, you can Modify/Book a regular FP to ‘use up’ your initial 3 to move on to your 4th and so on. You can save your Anytime to use later if the ride comes back up.

    We’ve done this before. Had a FP for 7D and when it began to storm, received an Anytime and changed out the 7D for another ride. Later in the evening we used the Anytime for 7D when it was back up.

    I've only had this happen once and I can't remember how we got the Anytime FP when the ride went down. Do they have to scan your band at the ride to receive it?

    The park’s FP system automatically adds the Anytime to your MDX account as soon as the ride is downed.

    You don’t need to be anywhere near the ride or park.

    I have a 7 day pass, and I plan on buying more, but don't want to yet. If I book 7 days of fast passes for my future trip, but then go into a park BEFORE those trip dates without using ANY fast passes though, will I lose my fast passes for the future days? Does that make sense? I will buy more park tickets, but I don't want to yet. My fast passes for the future dates are more important.

    Yes. There has to be a corresponding number of ticket entitlements linked in MDX to keep the booked FPs.

    I am wondering if this is allowed- If I book a FP for my family where my son will not want to ride, can my daughter ride twice? (She is 15 and perfectly ok as a solo rider). We will all be in the park but I would take him for a snack while allowing her two rides (one with his Magic Band) if it would not get her into trouble.

    Yes. She can take your son’s MB and enter the FP line. As long as your son actually entered the park that day.

    On the other hand, if for example, your son decided to stay back at the resort that day and not enter the park at all, it would be problematic. As repeatedly doing this would result in the eventual lock of your MDE account and a visit to Guest Services to would be required for (what I’m told) would be a one-time unlocking.

    Thank you. He will absolutely be with us (he is 10 and Autistic). My DD will be happy to hear this is allowed.

    Quick question for those of you experienced in booking FPs at the 60 day mark, if my check in date is April 13, am I right in thinking the first day I could choose FPs is Feb 12th? And is it 7am EST that booking opens?

    Hello!

    I will be traveling to Disney in June! :yay: We are staying offsite at Bonnet Creek, but since we are driving, we would like to book a hotel in the Disney area for the night before we check in to maximize our time. If we stay only one night in a Disney resort, would we be able to make FP+ for our entire stay or only for the day we would be staying onsite? After all, if we could make our selections for the time we are offsite, it would be worth the extra money to stay the night at a Disney resort! Otherwise, we will find a cheaper alternate for the night before check in at Bonnet Creek.

    Thanks in advance for the advice!

    Quick confirmation of the way I think this goes, as it relates to my trip this year:

    With APs and 10 night (11 day) onsite stay - 60 days out from check-in, I'll be able to book FP for all 11 days, correct? It goes based on days, and not nights stayed?

    Thank you!

    Yes, you can book FPs for check-in day through checkout day - 11 days of FPs.

    Ok. So my FP day is today. Me and DD are checking into BWV on March 17th. We have friends checking into Port Orleans on March 19th. I asked and was told that I would be able to make FP for all of us at our check in day. We are all linked. I can see their hotel reservation and tickets and they both show up in "My Disney Experience". Went to do FP when it opened this morning and it would only let us do Me and DD. It would not let us make FP for our friends. (Actually DD got it to work on 1 ride for the 5 days we made FP for). We even logged out and logged back in and still would not let us. Is this right?

    Are your friends on a package? Meaning, did they book a package that combined park tickets and hotel together? If so, that's the problem. You'd only be able to book their fast passes if they had tickets that aren't part of a package.

    I currently have an on-site reservation and booked my FP+s at the 60-day mark. What happens if I cancel my WDW resort reservation and change to an off-site hotel? My current reservation is RO, btw, and my UT tix are in my MDX account.

    I guess what I'm wondering is: if I cancel the WDW reservation two weeks before check-in, for example, would my FP+s still be good? Or would my canceling the WDW resort no matter when I canceled also negate all the FP+s I made, since I made them 60 days out?

    Hope this is clear! Thanks.

    Your FPs will remain intact based on the tickets that are linked to your MDX Profiles. As soon as you know you’ve found your offsite accommodations, Cancel your onsite stay to open it up for someone else to book... whether you are 50 days out or 2 weeks out, your FPs remain intact.
