Has anyone without a room reservation been able to book a FP+ for BoG We have MB's from a previous stay and they are linked to our AP's so we will be using them again when we stay off property in December. I am just curious if I will be able to possibly get a FP+ for BoG without staying on property.

From all that I've read, FP+s are tied to resort reservations, and are only available right now to those staying on-site. They have nothing to do with tickets/passes. So I doubt it.

I have been able to make FP+ for our upcoming stays. Once the MB Is linked to an AP is stays active for as long as the AP is good for and I can continue to make FP+ selections 60 days out. I just haven't been able to use it for BoG yet.

You won't find the BOG FP+ listed with the other FP+. There is a separate website for BOG FP+. Nothing is open past 11/30.

The Scoop, according to Yvonne…and Beth….and James

So, we are only 25 days out from our trip and I am too obsessive of a planner to wait around for things to "happen" so I ended up calling (FYI - the number in post 88 of this blog is NG now) to get the scoop out of the mouths of the Disney folks. I spoke to Yvonne, Beth and James (3 separate calls, 3 excruciating hold periods of awful music and promos) and they all essentially said the same thing. Yes, you had previously been able to get online (using the link from post #1) and "trick" the system to allow you make a FP+ reservation…..BUT it truly is invitation only now, at least for the month of December, and probably will be for February too. WHAT??!!?? They ALL said that if you were selected to "participate in the FP+ testing for BOG", you would receive an e-mail and the e-mail would have a separate reservation number which WOULD be recognized by the BOG website and magically open up the December dates. WHAT??!!?? So I asked if we'd be able to secure a FP at the park the day we wanted to dine (12/8) and they thought it would work but weren't 100% sure. Ah, FP…you are a fickle beast.

Try using this link:

https://beourguestlunch.disney.go.com/Home.aspx

Once you've signed in, as long as you have a WDW resort reservation, you may be able to get to FP+ for BOG

I was able to use this link in early October to book my Nov 2nd lunch reservation.

Not sure I'm following this part. So they're telling you it's all invite only as of December, but you asked if you could get a FP and they said they "thought it might work" ... thought WHAT might work? Thought you'd be able to use the existing link?

I don't know if it's already been said or not but I was never sent an email inviting me to participate in FP+ for BOG. However, I was able to add my room reservation ID and login to the Be Our Guest lunch site. From there, I am able to book a FP+ reservation for November. I am not able to book December but no one is able to either. -dave

I also talk to Guest Relations (about another dining issue I was having and she said they weren't available. I am still going to watch to see if open. The message I got was from the special log in for BOG - that said not available.. not thru the regular fast pass ?
I'm still watching daily and hoping... be there in 25 days.

I believe she meant that you could go to guest relations or your hotel concierge the day of to get a FP+ for BOG.

I think that's what they are telling people who don't get the invite but who knows if that will really be the case or not.

I tried to enter my resort reservation info but it keeps deleting numbers as I enter them. I can't enter more than 1 number. Anyone have this issue?

It's not your reservation number it wants.

Look at your ME tickets. There are two lines of numbers. It wants one of those lines. On my FP+ it was the second line of numbers that let me make a reservation.
