welcome to the Dis when are you coming down? , perhaps its too far out for this as someone else said ? right now its a test anyway so don't worry about it I have eaten at BOG many times, always got in a lunch line at about 10 am ( yes super early but I work nights so worked for me) you don't have to get in a line that early (never turned away) if you are hoping for dinner keep trying the website
hope you get lucky

Sorry my iPhone autocorrect we a few words wrong. I meant that it is best to order ahead so you go right to your table if the wait is the issue. We did end up having to wait about 15 to 20 minutes because we didn't preorder. What the process is, is that you check in and if your preorder then you receive a yellow rose and get to sit immediately. However, if you don't preorder you skip the outside line and are put into the shorter line in the castle. So if you want no wait preorder if you just want a shorter wait then it doesn't matter.

Thanks for the tip! Just booked it. I have a package reservation and room only reservation and was able to book for the days under our room only. I order the meal too. Very easy to do.

I used the link here but very interesting I got the email yesterday to book via that. When I tried to use the email it brought me to the reservation I previously made and would not let me make another.

All the food was good. and the Braised Pork was like a full dinner with mashed potatoes and a veg. Something different then "just a sandwich" while on the quick food plan.

If you have issues simply do the fastpass+ but not the pre-order. Then either call its simply treat it as you would any other quick service.

It does sound so good. both my hubby and I pre-ordered the braised pork and strawberry cupcake. YUM!

I agree, I don't remember seeing any place to make a notation but just make the choices when you get there.

I'm just wondering for those of you who have done the lunch reservation/preorder food etc. Do you miss anything by pre-ordering your food. Such as, photo opportunities with the suits of armor, and the hallways. Do you skip all this and not get to see it?

I did not know if they take you in a separate way than how you would go if you just waiting in line. Or if it's any different if you do the lunch reservation but not preorder your food.

I'd like to see everything, so didn't want to miss out. Thanks!

Not sure how they're doing FP, but even without it I thought it was so crowded in that hallway there were no photo ops anyway. I wonder if you could schedule late in the lunch period and just hang around and wait for the end of the line to clear through?

It's one of the things I really preferred about dinner. That hallway was completely empty as we exited since it's not used for ordering at dinner time.
