    I just read something about getting a fast pass+ for lunch at Be Our Guest. I've been wanting to eat lunch there since WAY before I even made our travel plans. How can I get one of these? Or how can I better my chances to get on for my family?? HELP!

    Hi, Jessica! My family and I were able to get FastPass+ selections for lunch at  Be Our Guest Restaurant last October, but we had to be "invited" to participate.  We received an email two days before the day we had chosen to visit the Magic Kingdom (we were already in Walt Disney World - so check your emails when you can).  Through My Disney Experience and the ride and attraction FastPass+ selections we had already made, the system knew we would be in the Magic Kingdom that day and asked if we would like to test the FastPass+ experience for Be Our Guest. We jumped at the chance, and it was terrific! Now, I have no idea how or why we were chosen, so I can't tell you how to increase your odds besides making sure you are using My Disney Experience and to be vigilant with your emails before and during your trip.

    I can, however, make another suggestion.  Don't stress too much about the FastPass+ selection being the only way to eat there for the Quick-Service lunch.  My family and I have dined there several times without FastPass+.  What works for us is to either go just as it is opening or about thirty minutes before lunch ends, and we have been able to get in without too much wait.  While you are waiting, be sure to listen to the suits of armor talking and take in the amazing architecture of the building.  You will not be bored.  I'm sending pixie-dusted wishes that you get an email invite, too. Happy planning and have a Magical vacation!
