    Arriving in WDW November 15th - received e-mail to do a test lunch at Be Our Guest. What exactly does this mean? I accepted and even chose our meals but it's not showing in my plans now. Not really sure what makes it different then a reservation? Thanks!

    Hi Denise,

    Congratulations!!  I'm thrilled to hear that you received one of the coveted invitations for testing of the FastPass+ system for lunch at Be Our Guest Restaurant.  The FastPass+ testing for Be Our Guest Restaurant is only for lunch when it functions as a Counter Service restaurant.  With Counter Service restaurants, you are not able to make Advanced Dining Reservations like you are for Table Service Restaurants.  However Be Our Guest Restaurant is an innovation itself!  It is a Counter Service restaurant for lunch and a Table Service restaurant for dinner, with each mealtime having a different menu.  Now Be Our Guest is demonstrating its innovative spirit once again and is performing FastPass+ testing to allow for expedited service during lunch.

    Due to the fact that you are participating in a test, your FastPass+ selection for Be Our Guest will not show up in your plans in your My Disney Experience account.  However rest assured that your FastPass+ selection is still there and you will be able to redeem it at Be Our Guest Restaurant in the same manner that you do at attractions.

    I personally love having the FastPass+ system extended to include lunch at Be Our Guest Restaurant.  This restaurant is one of my all time favorites and is on my list of "must-dos" each time I visit Magic Kingdom.  Since it is such a popular venue for many other Guests too, having a FastPass+ "eating" selection has made Be Our Guest Restaurant even more appetizing for me!

    Thank you for submitting your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel Denise.  Please let us know if you have any further vacation planning questions.  We love to help!
