Only two weeks to go until our FP+ day for next trip. I always start checking 30 day availability around this time, and start making my priority list. Today was my first check. Imagine my surprise when I went to check Flight of Passage and was immediately offered one for the three of us at 10:10! Needless to say it was a complete fluke, but it just goes to show that sometimes you just need to be lucky in the FP+ game.
Awesome! What luck. Was that am or pm?
We’ll then its not due to suddenly extended park hours. Hope your luck holds. I’ve been playing around with it, too and it’s a huge help to be able to do that. I’m pretty rusty.
It’s also a lot of fun! I’m running out of things to do in the planning stage- it makes me feel like the trip is a lot closer than it is.
Yes - I normally do this every few days as the FP+ day gets closer. It gives me a feel for which ones I need to concentrate on first, and just like you said it also makes it feel like the trip is a lot closer!
Have you tried getting anything during the drops? That’s my next challenge, but I keep getting distracted and forget!
To be honest I’ve never had a problem getting what I want, so I’ve never really had to do try the drop times. Last trip (September) DD wanted to go on Slinky again both our HS days and I manage to snag FPs for an hour or so later without too much trouble, so I must be pretty lucky in the FP+ department!
We are about 2 1/2 weeks out and I was just wishing I could “practice” making FP+. How are you able to do that??? It will be my first time and I am nervous about having to “learn” the system as I am actually at the window. We have a package with room, tickets, dining and I will be trying to make FP+ for 8 people.
I think that this means that it will only open for you at +60 ‘on the day’. I have the same.
I’m having the same anxiety.
Same. This is making me miss making a mad dash to a kiosk to pull the physical fast passes while my family waits in line. At least then I knew what I was doing.
I’ve tried watching you tube videos of people explaining it. I’m not sure it helped though. When I logged in at 6 AM for ADRs on 180 days out, I quickly found that I could NOT reserve anything and had to call the phone number and have them do it for me. Just a random glitch that wouldn’t allow me to book. All of my dates were grayed out even though I was 180 days out. So I’m worried something like that will happen again and I will miss my early window. Can we book fast passes by calling? Just in case it happens again…
I don’t think you can do it with packages, unfortunately. I have an AP I just bought, not activated yet.
I’m glad I’m not the only one! I’ve been computer savvy for 20+ years but Disney’s website makes me nervous. Right now I can’t choose MB colors or get all of the accounts linked correctly or choose avatars for certain people (but can for others). I did watch a few youtube videos that showed FP+ choosing pretty clearly but the act of doing it myself has to be done at 5am my time when my head doesn’t work yet!
May the force be with us on that day!
You CAN book FPP on the phone. I also recommend setting up auto-sign in on every possible internet browser. Sometimes, the MDE website only works on Safari. Other times, only on Chrome. I have auto-login everywhere possible.
Thanks for the confirmation on using the phone! Auto log in is something I have always kept turned off but maybe I need to do that. Don’t even remember how to change it at this point!
Have you been following theDibb FP+ availability charts? There has been quite a bit of availability lately for everything but FOP and SDD. Even FOP had some available at 60 and 60+2 this morning. Not so with SDD. Keep our finger crossed!
Yes! And I really think I’ll be okay. My days for FOP is 60+3 and SDD is 60+5. But I’m worried I won’t get times I want and my whole plan will be weird and I’ll have to change all my ideas! Which is bound to happen for some of them but I just need it to hurry and happen so I can adjust and stop thinking about it. I feel like tweaking my TPs right now is just frivolous.
