I don't know if that's only at the resorts where fp+ testing is happening or if it was only for those who got the invites, but it's worth a shot to check with your resort!
Good tip thanks

I would get on line no later then 10:15 or so for lunch; I saw them cutting the line off at 2 pm but getting on right before that would have at least a 40 to 60 minute wait from what I could judge. I am thinking the only reason you can't do a BOG reservation now is that your date(s) are too far out.

Thanks! Figure it can't hurt to ask when I check-in!

My check-in is only 10 days away! When I first saw this, I tried to log in and add a reservation. My confirmation # has letters in it, so I used the # from my DME tags. First it said something like make sure the name matches the res. Did that. Then it just tells me "guest already registered". I've tried deleting cookies, I've tried different names in our party, I've tried the other # on the DME tags, I've even tried my husband's email account. NOTHING! Just keep getting "guest already registered". How I wish that were true!!!!!

Hoping the CM at the resort has some pixie dust to share and can book one for me when we arrive. Maybe if I ask REALLY nicely?

It wasn't even an option.
My dates showed up the same way. If you click on the little arrows that appear towards the top of the screen it will move your dates over so that you can use those last two days. Good luck

Our FP+ time isn't until 11:45, so I'll pop over the the podium 20 min early and ask if we need to pick up a yellow rose. Our resort is part of the FP+ testing in Sept, but we haven't heard anything about magic bands yet.

Don't worry about it; just show up. I had no problems the both times I did it.

I haven't read through this thread so forgive me if this has been discussed. I was able to get a magic band and fp+ selections but I didn't get an email invite. It's still in my account after a few days so I assume it's actually happening. I made a fp+ reservation for BOG lunch today but will it actually be honored? I'll be solo so I don't want to wait in a long line alone!

I also will be solo have my Magicband, FP+, and made a BOG lunch reservation. I did not get an email or letter. Don't think we'll have a problem.

I hope so. A BOG lunch reservation and a fast pass+ reservation is all I was worried about for this trip! I won't get up early enough to grab a regular fast pass for Toy Story. Here's hoping! I just wish they'd say if September is actually testing or not!

Check in was a breeze. The asked for my name then directed me to use the FP+ entrance. Ordering from the kiosk was simple and fast. We also got the table next to the rose. Awesome food. Awesome experience.

This thread made my day. We were going to skip BOG and then came across this. I got great reservations and my kids had fun picking out their food in advance. I do haves tip: if you as on the dining plan, preordering and have a child in your group order their dessert first then meal. Otherwise it can be confusing because it takes the dessert option away.

I tried the BOG dining Fast Pass & got a time, also ordered our lunch. This was pretty cool doing the first time, but don't know if I would want to do this all the time!
