WDW Annual Passholders to test MyMagic+

`themainstreetmouse

We have good news for WDW Annual Pass Holders! MyMagic+ has just begun testing with a select number of AP Holders. The test is set to roll out over the next several weeks.

During the test, a randomly selected number of annual passholders will be able to make advance FastPass+ reservations using My Disney Experience, and have the ability to order and customize a MagicBand.

In addition to the MagicBand, guests will also receive a discount card along with their MagicBand that will be used along with photo ID to obtain passholder discounts.

Gold discount cards will indicate that complimentary parking is included, and black passes will indicate that no parking is included.

All passholders taking part in the test will be able to make 3 FastPass+ reservations each day for one park. Up to seven days of FastPass+ selections can be made for a rolling 60 day timeframe.

I know there have been a lot of questions regarding how the new system will effect AP’s, so this should help. Looks like Disney is working on it! Stay tuned for more info!

    My Family and I have APs so let me share our experieence.

    1. We have DVC and were given Magi Bands when we checked in and we linked our AP to the Magic Bands in order to use FastPass+. Park entry, FastPass+, and the Disney Dining Plan all worked very, very well.

    2. The article states that if you are eligible for free parking you will get a Gold Discount Card in order to get the free parking. I also asked a Guest Services representative for more information; they said that the plan is to eventually have everything on the Band but that may take another year until then there will be two AP discount cards (Gold for free parking and black for standard parking).

    3. The 7 standard walk-up FastPass was still available in addition to FastPass+ as of January 8th. FastPass+ is a way to schedule three FastPass entries before you even leave for your vacation. We planned and reserved our three FastPass+ entries (Mission Space, Living with the Land, and Priority Seating for Fireworks) for the day and were still able to get a walk up FastPass for Test Track.

    I hope my families experience will help answer a few questions.

    I have to agree with the other two comments. I go on vacation with my family every year for 1 month in the summer. We spend approximately 5 days per week or about 20-25 days a year at the park. We buy the annual pass for the parking benefit. Also, if I travel 2600 miles to go to Disney, I would like to have fastpass available for my whole vacation. This sounds like annual pass holders are losing benefits that we pay for. Is there any way that these two pieces could be clarified by someone that knows how they work?

    I have an annual pass and thought of only being able to 7 days of fastpass selections within 60 days is just ridiculous to me. What if you live nearby the parks or can be in the area for an extended time? You would have a very limited usage of the fastpass system. I sort of feel like the AP holders should have been closer to the start of all of the FP+ testing and not the tail end. Just venting….

    I have an AP and parking is part of the pass so would I loose this if I was to get one of the magic bands since they are talking about the discount pass.
