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!
You would miss out because you go straight to your table. We didn't pre-order, so we still had to wait in line to order - about 10 min. Next time, we're pre-ordering.

So if we did the lunch reservation but not preorder our food, we could still see everything? Sounds like it would still save time (waiting outside etc) but give us plenty of time to see stuff as we wait to order.... Does that sound right?

I know this has probably been addressed, but bear with me....

I have not received an e-mail. I booked my entire package through Disney. When I go to the website listed in the first post, it asks for a reservation number. I put in my DME number, since my reservation number has letters in it and won't be accepted. The next screen says "Guest is already registered." Does this mean I'm out of luck? And what are my chances now being able to walk up for lunch if everyone's getting to do FP?

I had given up my dinner ADR, figuring I'd just do lunch instead. And then this happens? I won't be a happy camper if I can't get lunch either!

So we just paid out of pocket for the soup actually they charged it to our room using the credit card on file with our magic bands. .
Hmm....so you weren't able to get the soup as a snack credit. I really thought it was listed as a snack credit on the dining plan.

You have to make it two orders to use the snack credit. When you go to get your rose inform them you are using quick service credits and snack credits. They will then give you two roses. It also has to be paid for using 2 different KTTWC. We actually ended up with 3 roses on Sunday because we had our quick service meals, two snacks, and one out of pocket addition.

Wow- this actually worked for me...noon on 9/22. We have a room only reservation, so I guess that helped. I haven't pre-ordered our food yet, but we definitely will since I want this to be as efficient as possible.

Just received our DME stickers today! I put in the top number and it worked! We pre-ordered our food, I thought it was funny they gave you a time limit I admit I sat there staring at the options....my kids were getting antsy thinking we'd run out of time It gives you 30 minutes..so ample time

I really wanted the French onion soup, did not realize we could use it as snack credit, I just figured for entrée that was not a good way to spend our Disney dining credits. Opted for the ham and cheese, one turkey and three roast beef...all chocolate cupcakes, yum!

It was interesting it only gave me 3 times...11:30-11:45/2:10-2:25/2:30-2:45 so it was either early or late, no middle options. Went with early since we usually don't eat breakfast

Good luck everyone!

What we ended up doing was having the cost of the soup charged to room via the band then we went to guest relations in the hotel lobby and they switched it to a counter credit for us.

I would go back in and amend the order to add the soup; worst case they will charge you the $5.00 or so then go to guest services after you eat and they will fix it to take the cost off and make it a snack credit.

I am pretty sure once you are inside you can walk around and see everything. But even if you missed something there is plenty to see in the dining rooms and being able to sit and eat in 5 minutes more then makes up for anything.
