I mean, I talked to a CM on the phone the other night that told me the BOG lunch reservations were not up and running yet (though they would be at some point). Are we just spinning our wheels here? Getting reservations that no one knows about or will honor? I have no proof I even made a reservation. What does everyone think?

Same thing with me, I didn't get any confirmation. I called an the CM told me that its still in the testing stages so I might have a fast pass, and I might not. There's really no way for her to check because the BOG FP+ is down right now. I hope I have one but I hate not knowing.

I was able to make a lunch reservation today with our Magic Express number. I am so excited. This is the ONE place my daughter wanted to eat and I have tried relentlessly to get a dinner reservation with no success. This was the one and only reason I was disappointed we weren't part of the MB testing (for lunch reservations at BOG). So hoping this works. If not we will stand in line for however long it takes. Since we are going late September hopefully it won't be too bad even if we have to wait for lunch.

I have been trying to do this for DD's birthday (9/29) but it kept saying there are none for that day. (our only MK day) Today, I went to go try again, and after logging in, it gave me an error message that said something like Thank you for participating. Please try again later. If you need further assistance ask the concierge or at BOG.
I still haven't been able to make the resservation/FP for lunch.

I have read that the current cutoff for dates is around 09/27 or 09/28 so for right now you might have to wait until the next set of dates opens up (which no one is 100% certain will happen since this is a test and there are no announcements about how long the test will go).

That's a good question. I just signed up for DME on Sunday and while it shows up on My Disney Experience there is no numner associated with it. I also did not receive an e-mail (I was told I wouldn't) so I'm hoping that when my packet arrives in a few days it will be listed there and I can try it.

BOG Reservation Page Has FP+

I logged into MDE today and went to try, as I always do, to see if any BOG dinner ADRs opened up for 09/15-09/21 and what did I see? It says, "FastPass+ Service Offered, " and "Get in the fast lane to order a quick meal or snack for your party." And it has a button to click on that says, "Request Now"!

However, as with everything alse FP+ and BOG I've tried, it doesn't work! When I click the "Request Now" button it simply takes me down the regular FP+ road where I select a date and a park and choose stuff from the list, and BOG isn't listed.

Stop getting my hopes up already, Disney!

Once again when I called WDW I was told you have to receive an e-mail stating you are "invited" to participate in the test in order to get a FP+ for BOG. The CM also said the BOG FP+ is a separate system, as I was told before, and that I would have to check with the front desk of my resort when I check in and inquire about BOG FP+.

I told him about all the countless stories of people getting FP+ for BOG weeks ahead of when they arrive without being "invited" to participate and all he kept saying was, "That's all the information I have about it. Sorry."

I seriously, seriously would have thought they would have their stuff together a lot better than this. So frustrating...

We are not going until Nov 3-8, a while back I had gone to the BOG site and imputed our resort reservation and It said something about the dates not being within the range or something, anyway I just tried again and it recognizes me and says " Guest is Already Registered " I am confused to say the least

Have you tried going through the BOG link and using your DME #? My reservation number would give me the same result but my DME number got me in. That being said I didn't get a confirmation and it doesn't show up on my dinner reservations so who knows. I was able to pre-order for our family and select everyone's meals and then I just grabbed a screen shot. So we'll see what happens.

Thanks everyone for posting the link to BOG FP+. I was able to login to the site beourguestlunch.disney.go.com using my Disney account login info. I then used our DVC "Travel Plan" number (reservation number) and it found our reservation and both DH and I. I was then able to make a lunch FP+ reservation for Sep 13! Woohoo!

No confirmation email was received, but if I go back to the beourguestlunch.disney.go.com site and login again I can see my existing lunch FP+ reservation. There's no reservation number associated with it so I can't link it in MDE and it doesn't show up there.

Oh, and we never received an email invite and never were asked to participate in the magic band testing

I just added DME to my package on Sunday and am waiting for the package in the mail.

Review of BOG FP+

I read this very informative article on how the FP+ for BOG would work if I could ever get the system to accept me...

Thanks for the link to the article. I enjoyed reading it. I have done the FP to BOG several times and with each time that I have done it (Feb, May, July) it keeps getting easier and easier.
