    This is ONLY a test. It will not be 100% of the capacity. Remember, this is a counter service restaurant. In theory the volume is unlimited. Only the seating is a problem. :)

    Eventually, Fastpass+ and it's use at BOG should be available to everyone.

    And right now, it's a struggle to get, period :)

    Thanks so much Disboards!

    I'll be in the world a week from today, and we are FP+ testers (with our Magic Bands and FP+ selections already in tow) staying at Pop.

    We originally had a room only res with an AP discount, but added the AP dining plan to it a few days ago. We tried entering our new package confirmation number, but that didn't work. For the fun of it, I entered our (old) room only reservation number, and we were able to secure a res for lunch next Tuesday after 1:20PM! :cool1:

    Hope this works--we were planning on waiting in line for lunch anyway next Tuesday.

    My reservation # and My magic band ID# don't work. I have a package so maybe that's why it's not letting me. Oh well, I won't be waiting in many lines with my FP+ selections so I'll stick with waiting in line for BOG!

    How far before your trip did you get invited to be part of the test group?

    I actually got invited an hour before I checked in at the resort and was told it is by random email.

    I was not invited to participate via email. I was also not invited to do magic band testing. We have a DVC room only ressie for 8/24-8/29. I just went into the link, entered my room conf # and was able to select a date and time for my 4 person party. I did not receive a conf # nor does this appear on MDE reservations. I guess we'll see. I am capturing a screen shot just in case.

    But, woo-hoo, I was able to make the reservation, twice, because my parents didn't get the right page when they signed in, so I did it for them too! I'll be so happy if it works out for us. And if it doesn't work out all I've lost is time!

    Yes, I'm having the same problem logging in after making the reservation for BOG lunch. I will try calling Disney in the morning.

    So happy i saw this post! I have a split stay... POP for 2 days room only then CRS for 5 days with a package & free dining. I guess cause we are at POP first i was able to order the bands. So I logged in and it linked all my days together so i was able to book BOG for lunch!!! Hoping this works! Thanks OP!

    I have a package with letters in the ID too so it's not working. My magic band number isn't working either. Any other suggestions?

    The same thing happened to me. Apparently, I'm registered, but I never was able to pick a time, and I can't go any further either. :confused3

    We have a package and are arriving at POR in September. When I click on the link provided in the first post and enter my user name and password, I am unable to type my reservation confirmation number in.

    My reservation number has both letters and numbers and it won't let me type any of the letters. Is there another number I should have and be looking for??? I would really like to reserve this counter service for at least one day of our trip.

    Yay!!! It allowed me to make the reservation but it didn't give a confirmation #? Does anyone know how I would technically say its me per say when I arrive for this lunch? Thanks for everyone's help in advance :)

    DW called this morn, and spoke with a CM--- apparantely, its SUPPOSED to work like this, in regards to the "ADR" and confirmation-- when you arrive at your selected time, you give your name at check-in, and the system at the restaurant is supposed to have the same info that you were given when we made the ressie---

    (as far as party size, time, and meal (if pre-selected)

    Guess we shall see, but I like the concept--- Going on 9/2 :banana:

    For those with a package with letters/numbers, I was able to make my reservation using the number code on my Magical Express documents :)
