Question FP+ Booking Window Question

Ok so this is weird LOL We check in to Saratoga on 10/7 so my FP booking window was today 8/8 at 7am - I double-checked this with Touring Plans, I still use the PSCalculator.net for this stuff too and I even got an email reminder at 7:30am from Disney Destinations as well.

Last night I was playing around on MDE after midnight, looking up dining and such and had that crazy moment of panic - what if my FP booking window was Tues morn and not Wed LOL So I attempted to book my parties' FP for 10/7 last night around 12:30am - so technically my 60th day but....I'm supposed to be locked out until 7am. I was able to book my FP+ anyway for the whole trip! My DH and I have APs, the other two members of my party do not. We're all staying together on property. Did I just get lucky?

And as lucky as I was to be able to do that, there were no FP+ for FoP at all for the day I wanted and very limited for the remainder of the week. Maybe I was punished LOL

Anyone else have something like this happen to them?

Not to me, but I’ve heard that it has happened to others.

Never heard of this, but I wonder if the fact that you have an AP gave you an extra booking window over those in your party with regular tickets.
