The FP machines are still there and are still in use. But once a ride runs out of FPs for the day, they cover them, same as always.
As for room key AND wrist band getting FPs, your room key works the same as always, if you have tickets attached to your reservation, the room key is your ticket. In my case, with an AP, the room key itself only gets me into my room and allows me to charge to my room.
By the way Smallworld, I did not experience any kinks once I was in the World.
The only problem I had was while I was still setting up FP+ reservations and the system dropped all of my reservations. I called and spoke with a CM who was able to recreate all of the FP reservations manually. I also made FP reservations after that and had no problems.[/QUOTE]
They are not giving out keys as I mentioned. Pop Century guests, starting today, are only getting wrist bands. They will only be giving out the keys to people who do not want to use the wrist bands. I don’t know which resort is next, but they are all changing over.
