Quick question though... Is this linked to our MagicBands, or is it more like a traditional reservation where you walk up and tell them your party name or whatever? The website says "Check in during your confirmed arrival window at Be Our Guest Restaurant welcome podium at the entrance of the bridge." Just wanted to confirm so that we at least look like we know what we are doing when we arrive!
Curious which day did you get? I think its linked to your magic band but I could be wrong. I used the reservation number given to me when I personalized my magic bands thats why I think its linked. I'm happy you were able to get one!!

Google search for a blog on the BOG FP Lunch. There is a guy who wrote a blog (disneyfoodblog) with screen caps and everything and walked everyone through the entire process from the screen we are now, until sitting down and eating. he checked in with a CM. The post was super informative!
It helped me make the decision to try it!

Finally got through with the same results. Doesn't appear to be open for booking in December yet.

Here's a link to the Disney Food Blog report on testing the BOG lunch FastPass.

Thanks! Didn't know if I was allowed to link the actual site... Didn't want to break forum rules!

I'm so glad I was able to get this fastpass+ for my trip last week, we wouldn't have eaten there otherwise! I was pleasantly surprised by the food for the price.

The check-in process was frustrating for us though. We pre-ordered our food online, and told every single person during the check-in process that we had done so. We were handed off to a new person at least 4-5 times. When we made it to the touch screen the rose they had given us told us to re-order - I guess they were supposed to have scanned our magic bands at some point? They were able to look up our order from the magic bands, but it took a long time to get things sorted out & paid for.

Ours is for next Thursday, but it gave me the option to pick through November 2! I played around with different days, and they all had availability.

I don't think I ever received an actual invitation, but was able to set up the fastpass+ for lunch. My 6 year old is jumping out of her shoes with excitement.

Just FYI, I was able to change our Thursday (October 31) lunch FP+ to Saturday (November 2) with no problem! We are going to be touring with some friends on Thursday, and they are staying off site, so they aren't eligible for BOG FP+. I clicked around before finalizing, and there was still availability every day next week!

Hopefully this info will be useful to someone, or will at least help to alleviate some concerns. :D
