When you check into a participating Walt Disney World resort, you may be asked if you'd like to pre-order your lunchtime meal at Be Our Guest, Disney's newest restaurant in the Magic Kingdom. If you've been to Be Our Guest at lunch, you know that the line often reaches a good twenty feet past the bridge and can take up to an hour or more until you're served . Disney hopes that allowing guests to pre-order their meal and then show up at an assigned time will alleviate some of this time spent in line.
Here's how it works:
1. You'll log into https://BeOurGuestLunch.disney.go.com using your resort reservation number.
2. Select an arrival window and pre-order your meal.
3 Bring the card that you're given and visit Guest Relations at ity hall or Mickey's Philharmagic FASTPASS distribution when you arrive at the Magic Kingdom.
We were offered one of these at Wilderness Lodge a couple of weeks ago and were told it was only good for those of us on the reservation. So if you're traveling with a group, as we were, and they weren't offered one, you won't be able to bring them in with you because the system only lets you pre-order for those on the reservation. Still, I think this is a great idea, especially given the heat right now!
Disney usually takes a while to test out these types of things, so don't be surprised if it's not offered to the general public in the near fugure--or at all. If you're offered one of these and you use it, I'd love to hear how it worked out for you. I love lunch at Be Our Guest, so I hope this solves the problem of the long waits.
