This will be an extremely stupid question - do I need to have a valid ticket to MK to have the FP+ lunch at BOG?

We will hit MK but not on the date that I could get the reservation for...

I have 2 separate reservations,both DVC ,but with 2 nites in between with no reservation. The first reservation # did not work (Guest already registered) BUT my second reservation # did work and I got my reservation for 11/13 at 2pm . Thanks to everyone for posting reading that so many were getting this ADR kept me trying I also printed out my ADR. Joan
Thank you so much for posting this, and whoever posted before you! I finally got sick of checking every day to see if I still got the "guest already registered" message, and made a new Disney account with a VERY OLD email address, and it worked! Yay! I was not able to get the day I wanted since it was the 8th day of my trip and apparently they are still only allowing this for the first 7, but I'll make it work! Yay!

I have been getting the message about making sure that my name and reservation number are correct. Tried my hotel res number and my 2 magic band numbers. I'm nervous about signing up for another email account with Disney. I have 18 FP+ reservations (for 2 people so 36), hotel reservations and dinner reservations under my old email. I'm nervous that this could mess up my original reservations with MDE. I'd hate to lose everything over a BOG reservation which may have no dates available anyway because I have been trying unsuccessfully to log in! I really want to see the inside of the castle!

Well luckily the BOG FP is separate and not tied to your MDE and current fast passes. I feel your pain - you wouldn't want to mess up all your planning... But the BOG isn't connected at all with the MDE. Good luck. I hope you figure it all out and get that BOG FP!

I set up a new email and the top message in red still says that I should make sure that my name and reservation numbers are correct!

Well if makes you feel better (and I know it won't) I have been having inconsistencies between the MDE app (which I prefer) and MDE online. Ever since I replaced my last Pop night with a night at AKV with gifted DVC points, things have been quirky with the app (can't modify FP's for the POP portion of the stay...) But since the online MDE still has all of my FP's I haven't worried too much about it.

Well we are 3 days from check-in and now my MDE app doesn't show my FP's (just my family's) and online it shows NONE of them for anyone!! Whew! Just took screen-shots of the app and will now go in and try to reserved them again online hopefully! Yikes. But I guess I have something last minute to work on since I am almost packed.

I finally got into the reservation site. It would not take my resort conformation number. But I was customizing my wrist bands, I saw a different conformation number and used it AND IT WORKED!!! But sadly the day is booked. But hey I will keep checking daily.

When one man heard there were "fast passes for a select few in a trial" (cast members words) he got verrrrrry angry at those of us in line for fast pass check in. Also, I was walking down to the castle as instructed and another cast member stopped me and demanded I go back to the end of the line. I tried to explain I had a fast pass and had been instructed to find a particular cast member at the door and she was not impressed. I needed another cast member to come rescue me and escort me to the door!!! Once inside, all was grand though.
Thank you for sharing your experience! I am so worried that this will happen to us. We have reservations for 10/12, but we weren't "invited." However, I had absolutely no problems booking (no need to create new email addresses, etc.) and I haven't received any invitation to Magic Bands or FP+ but received my MBs and scheduled my FP+ with no problems. In fact, I haven't received any communication from Disney about anything! (Maybe b/c I booked through a TA with AAA?)
Anyway, long story short, I will freak if I have to argue with a CM about my reservation

Has anyone else gotten in without a formal invitation and without a CM confrontation??

We received a "thank you for your Disney reservation" email with our confirmation number on it but we have not received any further emails from Disney & we were able to customize our MBs & make FPP selections (as well as book a BOG lunch reservation).

You sound just like us. Made our resort reservations with AAA, did MB, FP and did BOG FP all without any communications from Disney. Our bands came last Friday for 10/26 arrival.

I am also interested in hearing from others that had no issues with BOG if they didn't get an invite.

I don't think they are even sending out the BOG invites anymore...are they? Nobody's reported getting one in a long time! I'm doing mine without and do not expect any problems.

We reserved without invite for our August trip and had no problem at all. Enjoy!

I am so sorry that you have had some issues with MDE and FP+. I hope that you are able to resolve everything and get back all of your FP's. My DH just got a $25 birthday gift credit from the Landry's Restaurant group card program so we may just go to TRex....I have never spent so much time trying to resolve an issue with a reservation (BOG) so I will happily just give up....not worth the aggravation. Have a great time!
