A few days ago we found out that FastPass+ testing for Lunch at Be Our Guest Restaurant would end on February 24th. FastPass+ testing has been available to Disney Resort guests through email invitation for some time, and it was indeed a test, allowing guests to try out systems such as the first time use of FastPasses for a restaurant as well as methods for pre-ordering food for their entire party.
Now that FastPass+ opportunities for lunch are coming to an end, this relatively new system (in regard to restaurants, anyway) is giving way to a tried-and-true: the opportunity to make Advance Dining Reservations for lunch at Be Our Guest Restaurant will be available for all Disney World guests beginning February 25th.
Guests can use the My Disney Experience app, website, or call 407-WDW-DINE to obtain their reservations — exactly the way they would make their reservations for lunch or dinner at any Disney restaurant that accepts Advance Dining Reservations. Even though Advanced Dining Reservations are typically utilized for Table Service restaurants, Be Our Guest LUNCH will continue to be considered a Counter Service option, utilizing one Quick Service Credit on the Disney Dining Plan.
However, lunch guests will retain the ability to pre-order their meals! While Advance Dining Reservations can be made 180 days out from the desired dining date, the window for pre-ordering meals using My Disney Experience will open 30 days prior to the reservation date.
The ordering kiosks will
still be available inside the restaurant for those who do not wish to pre-order.
Pre-ordering will affect lunch only, and dinner at Be Our Guest restaurant will operate as usual. We look forward to bringing you updates on any further developments!
