    I was able to get a reservation for Sept 4th.

    We were part of the first test program and it was very different from this! We checked in to Poly CL in December and my understanding is that the test was extended to CL guests of the Poly, Grand Floridian and Contemporary.

    You were walked through the process by a CM with an iPad and you had to order your entire lunch in advance. When you arrived at BoG you had to walk to the "guard shack" at the left of the bridge entrance. There, they checked your reservation (it was under your name, no reservation number). We never had to hand them the paper fastpass or show it for that matter. They never checked KTTW or any proof of resort etc.

    We paid at the guard shack, were handed a yellow rose and were escorted in to BoG by a cast member. The CM then gave us a brief tour and allowed us to select any room we wanted. I would say less than 5 minutes after we sat down our food was on the table!

    It was a seamless experience. I will be interested to see how the second test goes and I am hopeful that we can participate.

    There was no "checking" to be sure that guests participating in the first test were actually staying at one of the selected resorts. They way I know this? We ended up switching from Poly CL to AKL Savannah view about 2 hours after we checked in to the Poly. Our reservation was still valid even though we were no longer Poly CL guests. I would wager that if the online system accepts your reservation number that your reservation will be valid.

    Did you order your food ahead of time or just do the expedited checkout?

    We were in the airport on a layover when we got the email, so no printer. We screen-shotted it, but didn't need it. The check-in station at BOG had our ressie on their tablet. We hadn't chosen our meal in advance. I recommend doing so because then you can proceed right to your table. We still had to wait in line to order - about 10 min.

    I was able to get a FP+ with our DVC reservation. It seems like it will work. We arrive on September 25, I was only able to find times for the 25th and 26th, not past that day, so it may only be a limited time test, (I was looking for September 29).

    I will be interested to hear how it works for those that did not receive an invitation to participate, (like myself;))

    Maybe only one month out you can reserve for.

    We just used the test today and didn't preorder. I would definitely pre-order. If your order is already in, u go right to your table, otherwise u still have to wait in line to order. We had to wait about 10 min.

    HELP Please

    Last night I got a fastpass+ rezzie for lunch for sept 4 using the link on the OP. I thought all was ok until I restarted my browser and proceeded to login to my rezzies. I got this

    Multiple Disney accounts are associated with this email address. To retrieve a list of your Disney accounts—and designate a primary account—
    visit the Recover Member Name page.

    So I had them email me the accounts and there were 2-both dating back to 2004/2005 and neither are what I have been using for this trip(nor what I used for my 2007 trip)

    They all have the same email address but different passwords. Any ideas what I need to do?

    Change the email addresses of the old accounts to alternate email addresses.

    Alternately, do you have one set as the Primary? I've got several, but I have one as a Primary and I've not run into this issue (yet?). A couple are for my kids, but I get the emails.

    for the 2 that they gave me I have the choice
    "set as primary" or
    "This is not my account" or
    "I no longer use this account"

    If I click on I no longer use this account -for both-would it then go to the one I am currently using? or would I loose it totally?

    If you are not seeing the account you are actually using, could it be possible that it has a different email address than you think but it still getting to you?

    Otherwise I think you need to contact IT to get it straightened out. I'd be concerned about doing the "I no longer use this account" if your "real" account isn't showing up.
