Default New FP allowances for MNSSHP/MVMCP

Hi everyone! Per an online chat I had this morning with a CM on the DVC Member site, new this year you are allowed to make FP+ using a MNSSHP/MVMCP party ticket between 4-6p.

I did verify that even though DVC members are allowed in to the parties at 2p, everyone can only make FPs between 4-6p. And, since the system will not allow you to overlap times, you can really only fit in 2 FP between 4-6p. For example, if you have a 4p FP, your next one is at 5:05 at the earliest (because you can't have a 5p), and since they close at 6 for regular day ticketed guests, the FP system's latest FP time is 5:15-5:20, as far as I can see. I was working on mine this morning and this is the issue I came across. I did schedule one for 2:55-3:55 though in hopes that it will just work.

I will post pics I took of the conversation in a few min.....



ETA: I guess if you had a FP for 3p, then 4:05, then 5:10 ....but then the first one is still prior to 4p....so not sure how that will pan out. I could only get 7DMT for 4p, so I was stuck with that specific time.

I thought that was always the case. I have FPs scheduled 2:30-5:30 for Friday with our Halloween tickets. Our APs expire tomorrow.

Well then. We went in September to a MNSSHP. We got in right at 2pm. We had booked our fastpasses at 60 days. We had no other ticket for that day.

2:40-3:40 BTMRR
3:55-4:55 SDMTR
4:55-5:55 Pirates of the Caribbean

While the MDE system may know what day you're using the MVMCP ticket (since they are date-specific), based on what others report, it doesn't know exactly what days you're using other passes - whether AP or hopper or 1 day tix, etc. It probably just looks for a ticket and figures it's up to you to pick a time when you're actually inside the gates. And if you wanna use other means (AP, another ticket) to gain earlier access, that's your choice. So my guess is that if you wanted to make a FP for 2pm... you could. Once you're in the gate, no one is going to flag you at the FP line as being an "unworthy" DVC member and make you wait 2 hours, lol. Or so I'm guessing anyway.

Did you try to book a FP for times prior to 4 pm and it kicked you out / gave you an error message? Seems others have tried earlier times (and been successful). The computer you were chatting with may just be giving you the info they want the general population to have... (everybody with a MVMCP ticket can make MK FP ressies from 4 pm-6pm), versus the reality of what's possible (anybody with a MVMCP ticket can make a ressie for any time that day... how they opt to get i nthe gate to actually use it is their problem), LOL.
