I ended up calling H/A and the first person I got gave me the run around and said for me to call back the next day as it was their software. Not true---I called another operator immediatley and she walked me through the process in 30 seconds. I ended up having an incorrect entry in one of the boxes therefore the H/A site would not let me print. I thought I checked that box a dozen times, howver it was really my fault.
I think it makes it easier. There was a lady on the Estascy who did not do her FunPass before and she said it took her longer then it did her friend to be able to board. Like I said, they just looked at mine, marked it and I kept it. I think they just want to make sure that you have compelted it. To me, its not a big deal. What ever makes my wait less and gets me on that ship is fine with me.
