    I can only see dates starting Feb 22 and going forward. I try to see the previous week (when we're actually going to be at WDW) and the option is grayed out. So frustrating!
    Anyone able to see the whole month of Feb?

    WAIT! Just after I wrote the above, I was able to book Lunch on Sat Feb 22nd with arrival time of 12-12:30. Both options of Direct to Table with ordering the meal in advance and also the Arrival Time Option. I chose the Arrival Time option since I have no idea what my spouse & kids want to eat next month for lunch.

    BUT! So excited! We got in!

    Okay so does that mean this is working kind of like the dessert party. It opens up somewhat randomly for each month/part of the month? Hoping to get something for mid-March and right now it says no fastpasses are available.

    Also, it is still by invite only or can basically anyone on site get in? When I put in my reservation number it pulled up my party if that makes any difference.

    thanks!

    I can only see the February dates for which I have a resort reservation.

    Right, the pattern so far has been the dates for the upcoming month become available at some point in the current month. From what I read I was thinking Jan 20 for February dates, but it was yesterday Jan 14 instead.

    Basically anyone with a resort reservation can get it, as you already have. Now you wait until the March dates/slots are available.

    Great! Thanks!! I was hoping that was the case as I was trying to make sense of it all (you know without reading every page ;) )

    anyone who knows about the link and has a resort reservation can use the FP+. "Officially" its been a test for invited guests since last summer but someone who got the invite posted the link here in August and tons of DISers who found out about it have been using it ever since. If someone calls Disney to ask about it will be told that its for invitees only.

    Each month has been opening up around the 20th of the month before but February was earlier. March will likely be mid-late February.

    That's what I thought would happen, but we're going to be at WDW Feb 16-23rd and I can only see dates the 22nd - 30th. Snagged a reservation for the 22nd, but would love to have gotten one earlier in the week.

    Our February dates are also grey and that's when we'll be at MK. :(

    Hi all, anyone know how to retrieve the reservation from the Be Our Guest Lunch FastPass Site? I didn't print it, and now I'm trying to go back and do it and don't see it.

    When you log in to beourguestlunch.disney.go.com there should be an option to view your reservation. There's a menu of 5 things, and the second one is to view your FP+.

    Update: Disney IT said unless you are part of the test and got an actual invitation, they have no way to track it and my reservation may not actually even be there. Apparently, when you check into your resort, you will get a "card" inviting you to try the Be Our Guest Fastpass lunch. Anyone experienced this, booked it and not invited and got in anyway? I picked our meals and everything. I did take a screenshot of our order, I just don't have a confirmation #.

    that's what IT/CMs have been telling people for months. Calling them is a waste of time as they can't help anyone.

    there have been few if any reports of people being turned away and DISers have been making FP+ with the link since September.

    the link is for a test that was supposed to be for invitees only but if you know about the link and are staying on site you can use it.

    We got in fine yesterday without the formal invitation or even a screen shot.
    Also found that after I used the FP+ I had booked for yesterday, I was able to go back to the site and book another FP+ ressies for our next MK day next week! Glad about that because DH wasn't able to join us for yesterday's meal.

    I'm so disappointed. My travel agent failed to send me the link to this until today and all of the reservations are already booked the 3 different days we're going to MK :( We're 41 days out from our trip right now. Oh well, We'll just stand in the line! Hopefully this test isn't making it more than a 30 minute wait!

    If you have any of the last days of February days in your trip, try calling up each day and just refreshing the browser page. You may see that with some refreshes time slots appear, and with some refreshes it says no times available. When time slots do appear, they can change with each page refresh.

    For the March days of your trip, those time slots aren't available yet; not until mid February based on what's happened so far.

    Ok, I've tried these tips.
    My reservation has letters
    Could not find a # anywhere on MB page
    Tried both sets of numbers on DME tags that arrived today
    The button that says "next" is not able to be clicked to go any further.

    Any ideas?
