The Magic Kingdom has been testing a new method for Disney’s “Be our Guest Restaurant “. It appears that they are trying some version of Fastpass. The plan is to have advance reservations available using Disney’s Fastpass+, for lunch times. To do this, you would log in to your “My Disney Experience” app, enter your resort reservation number, then make your selection.
Because walk up seating will still be honored, Castmembers will provide a "Fastpass" with a time for you to come back. Just like a Fastpass, nothing is guaranteed as it will be first come first serve. Once all passes are handed out, a sign will be put up that says “Reservations only.” As we've seen, the lines at the "Be our Guest Restaurant " can become very long, so Disney is hoping that this will minimize the wait time.
My wife and I love this restaurant, though, we have not tried lunch. This is something that I know we both look forward to and we can't wait to try this new testing method.
