BOG Special Invitation!

So excited! Got here this evening and was lucky enough to be given one of the BOG lunch "special invitations" when entering the line for DME!! Can't wait to schedule and give it a try!! What a great start to our short trip!

Is this an invitation to do FP lunch at BOG? I've been curious how this would work. Please post an update after you do it!

Yes, this is a FastPass invitation. According to the card I was given, I go online, schedule the day and time, and choose our food - then show the card in exchange for the FP at either MK City Hall or at Mickey's Philharmagic to get the FP that day. Then present the FP at a separate line at BOG.

I will update after we do it!

You have to choose your food before you even get there??? That's weird. Congrats, and can't wait to hear how it went! Have a great trip!

Just double checked the invitation - and yes, instruction #2 is "Select an arrival window and pre-order your meal." Card states it is "an invitation -only test". Should be interesting!

Yeah, congrats to OP...I hope it works out well, but as much as I dislike lines and love planning...I don't want to go to Disney if every single decision of where we will be and what we will eat every minute of every day is already decided before we get there.

They tried this a few months ago, too. Maybe they tweaked something and are trying it again. Please report back, OP! I'm curious how it works for you!

We received the special invitation when we got to the line to get on the DME. There were some glitches in our case and we couldn't get it to work on the computer, so we went to City Hall and they had CM set aside to help people that were experiencing glitches. It took them 2-3 minutes to get us registered in the system (we went in the day we wanted to go). When we got to BOG, we walked right up to the ordering line, waited 5-10 minutes, ordered our food and ate. Overall a pretty good experience, but they still have some bugs. Once we got in the restaurant was no where near full in any room. It seemed to us like the hang up was all in the ordering process.
