We ate there today with FP+. Walked up at 12:10pm for our 12:30 ressie and walked right in. Took about 7min with other FP+ users in front of us before we walked up to make our selections.

I am glad we didn't preorder because no one ordered what I initially thought they would.

The food comes fast after you order. The ham/gruyere sandwich was incredible. My 12yr old devoured it but she gave me one bite. My husband loved the tuna. I had the pork which was tender but way too fatty for me. 3yr old had pasta and broccoli. She ate it all. The cupcakes fell flat for us but the lemon was the best.

I would split a fountain drink. There are free refills which was so nice.

When we came out at 1:10pm (we spent a lot of time relaxing/exploring) the line was only half of the bridge. Maybe 20min max. It was MUCH longer at noon. They offered golf umbrellas for shade.

We go there for dinner on Wed night but lunch was nice!!

I've tried my reservation number several times but I can't get into the system. Do you have to be signed up for the fast pass+ system for this to work? Possibly a few other things that might be working against me - I don't get there until mid October and I'm staying on my DVC points.

Any advice?

I think you are too far out. I had been trying & couldn't get in until yesterday. My trip starts on September 9.

I have tried this several ways and it doesn't work for me. Our trip is 9/1-9/9.
We are not using MExpress.
We have a room only our first night, then a package with dining.
Some stuff is accidentally in dd19's name, but she also has a MDE account, so I have tried the RO ressie numbers with both of our names/accounts.
What am I doing wrong? Am I just not eligible? Is it because we are room only for only one night? Am I not putting in the right combo?
I wish this was more obvious...because I'm definitely missing it.

I was able to do this about a week or so ago, and just found out yesterday that we will be getting MagicBands during our trip. I think that maybe since it is working for some and not others, it must have something to do with whether you are part of the MyMagic+ test or not. Just a theory.

For the record, we will be at POR arriving on 9/24

I've found an alternative way to find the ID.

When I logged into My Disney Experience site, I went into My Reservations section.


Click Check In Online

The URL changes to :


https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/tr...d/XXXXXXXXXXX/

XXXXXXXXXXX is your reservation number you need.

what browser are you using? I don't see a number, but "disneyworld.disney.go.com/trip/my-vacation/" I tried with both chrome and IE

I am managing my father's account too, and while I have his confirmation number with letters, I never wrote down the long number, and want to make a fastpass+ for them that matches ours

The magic band test does start until 9/3. You aren't eligible.

Didn't have to be Mb eligible. The test is being handle on a case by case basis. Sometimes you get an email an sometimes the CM checking you in will offer it to you. All resorts have the ability to offer it. Anyone whose number works was probably already flagged to receive the email on the day of check in or to be offered by front desk CM.

When I tried, it says "Guest is already registered" when I put in my ressie (RO) and my first and last name.

What does that mean? Am I too far out (Nov 12-23rd)

We went today - our family selected ahead of time, and the other family didn't. We had a few minutes wait to get to the reservation window. We went in, saw a CM, and paid for our meal with our MBs. BTW I was able to customize my DS's roast beef sandwich by taking off the horseradish and veggies online before we went. They gave me the slip and we went and selected a table. We were in the dark lightning room (sorry, didn't know we were going until the last minute so I don't know the names of the rooms!) and it took a LONG time for a CM to come and clear the table. We were standing around waiting for the table to be cleared but they cleared 4 other tables first where nobody was waiting. ?????? Other than that, the service was fast, and we had barely started eating when the other family got their food.

DD LOVED the turkey sandwich. My DS loved his roast beef sandwich and DH and I really enjoyed the pork. Mom on the other family had the tuna and said it was excellent. Other DS did not like the taste of the cheese on his Croque Monsieur but ate half of it. I liked the passion fruit creampuff and DD loved the chocolate creampuff, and DS appeared to love his chocolate cupcake! LOL Other DD did not like the taste of the passionfruit creampuff.

DH wasn't expecting to have to get cutlery, but he didn't understand that it was QS and you don't usually have actual heavy silverware OR people bringing food to you in such an awesome location for QS! It was really amazing. $70 for four of us though, which was steep, but worth it.

You had to wait for a table to be cleaned before you could sit and eat? Do they have assigned seating for those doing FP dining? Did you not get to pick where you sat and could pick an open clean table? If it is assigned why wasn't a table ready for you I would have been upset waiting for them to come over and clean my table if they knew I was being seated. Been upset if i had to watch other tables being cleaned while my family stood waiting.

Or

Are you talking about cleaning your table after you were done eating then I ask are there any trash can to clear your own table if not usually you just leave the stuff there and they come clean up for you no need to wait just like Wolfgang pucks. Just leave a little tip as thanks.
