The windows are 1/2 hour long and they give you suggested times slots, just like for an ADR. The first time I tried to get a reservation I took a "less than ideal" time because I didn't want to lose the slot. Later on I tried to get a better time and was able to get it.

no 15 minutes. My sister and I had 2 rooms and one of us had 11:35-11:50 and the other 11:45-12. We went together at 11:45.

it's not letting me in yet (as we have january reservations) but i notice that there are two different spots to check, FastPass Direct to Table or FastPass Expidited Arrival……will I get an option to pick one of the two and if I do, which one do I want? I'm assuming Direct to Table, but what does the other one even mean?

I'm pretty sure Direct to Table means you order your food when you make the reservation (so you can go directly to your table after checking in) and the other one just gets you the reservation and you order when you get there. You will be able to choose which option you want.

so is it a lot faster to order before? if we decide to wait until the day of to order, will we still avoid the long line?

We didn't order before and it took probably 10 minutes from the time we got in line, ordered and were sitting at the table. So it's not that big a difference.

We preordered and upon check in they handed us menus and asked if we'd like to make any changes. I added an extra cupcake.

Has anyone been able to get a January date yet???? I am wanting one for either Jan 28th, 29th or 30th and it is still telling me no availability.
I have not had to enter my reservation number, it asks me to sign in, then brings me to my dates and when i select the Jan 28/29/30th it says no availability.
I will also be at WDW the week before, but it doesn't let me choose one of those dates- i am staying on property then too. I dont understand why i cant choose those dates????

Nope... Currently not working for anyone (that we know of).

We were just there last Fri 12/13. We preordered, but we still had to wait in the one of the lines inside the castle to pay at the cashier ( the lines near the talking knights) It didn't take long to get through the line... less than 10 min. (They do a good job of keeping the lines inside the castle from getting too long by keeping the standby line outside). But it didn't save us more than a couple minutes than if we hadn't preordered.

We are there from the 3rd and can't get a fast pass. Just says no fast passes available, try a different day!

I'm not very patient!
