Be Our Guest Restaurant Lunch FastPass Test to End

Share This!

It’s been one of the hardest things to get when planning a Walt Disney World vacation. People have been clamoring for it since the day it opened. The Be Our Guest Restaurant Lunch FastPass+ reservation has been just bonkers to try to obtain, as Guests have hoped to have that elusive chance to dine at the New Fantasyland counter service offering. (I know…I was one of the lucky ones who was able to obtain one on a recent trip!)

However, it would appear that changes are coming, as now the testing phase is seemingly coming to an end. According to the Be Our Guest Restaurant FastPass+ website, on February 24, the lunch testing will be over and Guests are instructed that beginning February 25, they should log onto www.mydisneyexperience.com for more information.

Be Our Guest Restaurant FastPass+ Removal

The question remains though, what does all this mean?  There have been several theories floating around. They include that the lunch reservations will go all FastPass+ and that all Guests will be able to make their reservations via My Disney Experience, not just those staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel; the restaurant could be going all standby; or could it be going the all Advanced Dining Reservation route instead; and finally, the popular rumor is that breakfast is coming to Be Our Guest Restaurant very soon and this move may have something to do with that.

Keep in mind that no matter what change does occur, Guests looking to dine here at dinner will still need to obtain an Advanced Dining Reservation.

One thing is for sure…something is happening. I’ll be ready to share the full details with you as soon as I find them out!

    I had been trying to get a FP for lunch there on Feb. 26 during our upcoming trip but kept getting the message that there were none available for that day. I started trying on the 27th day prior to our trip as I had successfully done for a previous trip, and even tried for every day of our trip just to see if I got the same answer. I called Disney Dining to ask if the policy had changed, and the person I talked to didn’t know of any changes. Finally, when i checked a few days ago I got the message that you’ve published above. Interestingly, I looked at the BOG link through my MDE account today and there were lunch hours listed as options for an ADR for today. Any other day that I checked only listed dinner times. Hmmmm…

    Nuts, I thought I had this all figured out for our March trip, but I guess I will be waiting until 2/25 to see what they’re doing. I hope there’s still an option to get lunch for just the counter service dining plan credit.
