It's a whole different ballgame if they go online full time and only deluxe guests at monorail resorts are allowed to pre-book their BOG lunches. But does anybody actually see this as a possiblility? Just trying to inject a little reality into this dreamscape.
This, this, THIS! No need for me to retype it--you said exactly what I was thinking. Let's all take a deep breath.

It's just a test. I don't get being upset that only certain resorts are being used for testing. Maybe they picked resorts near MK where guests could be more likely to participate in the test.

Just to be clear, personally, I am not upset in the least. I was simply pointing out that if one wants a true statistical sampling, the test should utilize a more diverse test group. I don't see this as a denial of a perk whatsoever. But the feedback will certainly come from a skewed socioeconomic grouping which could be easily avoided by simply adding one Value property to the test. Were one to do a test for feedback on food quality, one would not randomly sample guests who have reservations at Victoria & Alberts and leave out all people who have ADRs at Chef Mickey's. That said, the test is probably geared more toward efficiency than quality, and as such, it shouldn't matter all that much who they use as the test subjects.

I want to clarify that as well, per my original post (There are far many more important things to get truly upset about)--- I just felt that it was a bit odd that they only selected guests from the Deluxe resorts--- (JimmyV said the same)- Maybe it WAS just logistics---

hopefully all races and the handicap are included in this random testing or there could be lawsuits.

Are you implying that all races and handicaps wouldn't be represented at Deluxe resorts? And where did it say that this was a random test?

If they are simply testing the functionality and efficiency of advance bookings for lunch, why would they need a random sampling?

Well that's a random and bizarre statement to make.

"Randomly selected guests at the Wilderness Lodge, Contemporary, and Grand Floridian will receive a FastPass+ card with a specified arrival time for lunch (counter service) at the Be Our Guest restaurant in the new Fantasyland."
