some cast members were given invitations to go to lunch or dinner at BOG, more were able to bring at least one guest. This started last week and i believe this friday is the last cast. their given an inventation with a time and a party size their allowed. (though say its for a party of 4, they could be combined with another party of 4 when they get there to give servers/kitchen practice with large parties) these could be for lunch or dinner. they are also given vouchers telling them what they get to order. these are free for cast, only beer and wine has to be paid for. (ex. party of 4, dinner 5:00 pm. 2 app, 4 entree and 2 desserts. most wont have a choice , it will say you get steak, pork, hen and salmon.)

Query: How will this work since Oct 28th is a CM preview day.

Does that mean it's just not open to the public?

the last two weeks they have been doing lunch and dinner services with some cast members and their ready to try with guest. not sure how many days they'll do this, because most who have been to the lunch feel alot needs to change before it opens
They have cancelled the soft opening on 28th. there is no more cast previews, yesterday was the last one. their giving BOG cast weekend off. they will try to start soft openings monday for the quick service lunch.

While cast previews of BOG are over, cast previews of FLE expansion continue until November 2, followed by AP and DVC previews, so I'm not sure how they'd let guests in without interfering with these previews. So I'm still skeptical about this...

Maybe it won't be a true soft open, but something like the way they tested ETwB a couple of months ago by inviting random guests to come try. They could escort these guests to the castle and just not allow them to do anything else in NF. If that's what they do - and it's free to the guest - there's a fair chance you'll see me hanging around the gates on those days

We're going that week, and going to stop by the area and see if it's open for lunch. Never hurts to try.

yes, thats what i meant cast preview for meals. show have been more specfic. they will probally just more the line blocking people back. belle's storytime has been opening off and on for guest already anyway. the next thing is bog, so have it open to that point and only let cast pass from there

I was so looking forward to possible dining reviews that I jumped ahead of myself before reading what has been posted lately. I guess I need to be more patient.
