Went two weeks ago. Food and atmosphere were both very good, waited about 20-25 minutes to get to ordering kiosks at height of lunch hour. After ordering, food didn't take long at all to arrive and was tasty. More expensive than most CS restaurants, but this isn't Cosmic Ray's either. ;)

I will answer in reverse order:

ABSOLUTELY WORTH IT! Great CS option!! And the scenery ain't half bad either. ;):thumbsup2

Food service was very quick for us...somewhere in the 5-10 minute range. We went during a passholder preview, so that may have helped in the speed as it wasn't packed out for lunch as it would be on a normal park day. What did seem to happen is that if you decided to move tables, before receiving your food, their system couldn't handle that. It expected you to be where you first put down your "rose" (a little device that tells the servers where you are in the restaurant so they can deliver your food). We witnessed a couple of incidents of this while dining, including one incident at our table. Don't know if this is a real glitch in the system, or just a one off that happened while we were dining there.

Since I went during a preview, I couldn't say how crowded it is in practice. A lot of people tried it out during the preview, but no where near what it would be during a regular park day. The only room that stayed consistently full while we were in there was the West Wing, but it is the smallest room in the restaurant. The other two rooms were pretty empty in comparison to what they could hold.

Just ate lunch at BOG today 11:35 (got in line). We only waited 15 min. to get into castle and order. Chose our table, and waited about 10 min for our food. (We were busy taking pictures ;))

Actually responding to previous poster - we chose one table - was there about 3 min. then saw a table we liked better, so moved, and didn't have any problem with the serving girl with cart finding our *rose*. :confused3

The braised pork was delicious, we'll definitely get it again before we leave in 10 days. :goodvibes

When ordering at the kiosks, is there an option to modify your order? For example, can you ask for the steak sandwich w/out garlic butter? Or do you need to order from a station with a CM to make special requests?

There were some options to choose different sides than the defaults, but I don't remember specifically about special orders. I would think so, but I'm just guessing....

Didn't even see the kiosks :confused3 we were sent straight to an ordinary line with a *real* CM taking orders (like ordinary CS). We gave our order, took our rose, and went to choose a seat! Very organized and quick ::yes::

How did you pay, with cash?

PrinceAdam 11-27-2012 07:19 PM

Can't wait.... 9 months!

Jlz320 11-27-2012 07:25 PM

Did anyone use the meal plan? Does lunch there count as a qs??

echanna 11-27-2012 09:05 PM

What time do they open for lunch?

I did it Thanksgiving day, got in line about 11:40, and I was at a table with my food by 12:10. I loved the system for ordering and receiving food! I also love the self-serve drinks, to be able to get refills and bring one to go. I have some pics in THIS THREAD.

I was directed to a register with a CM; I was paying with a credit card. I had wanted to try the self-serve kiosk, but it was no big deal.

It's good, but expensive. Portions do not appear to be large enough to share. Onion soup, quinoa salad and a chocolate cupcake (no drink) ran me 20 bucks.

I do not use the dining plan but I do know that lunch counts as a quick service credit. You can also use a snack credit to get the onion soup.

Took about 15 minutes in line but that was at a passholder preview with limited admittance and the place was not crowded. All three dining rooms were open.
