FastPass+ will become a reality on May 2, 2013.
You'll be able to order your Quick-Service lunch at Be Our Guest Restaurant ahead of time, show up at your reservation time, scan your MagicBand+ or Card and sit down.

Yeah...I don't think so.

That would be crazy if it really happened. I wonder where they got that information? Has anyone questioned it on facebook? Guess I will have to go look.

I don't know how true the travel agent email is about FP+ becoming a reality on 5/2, but someone on the restaurants board got a call saying that her BoG ADR for 9/6 was going to be cancelled because the restaurant was going to be closed that evening.

The castmember apologized & told the person that maybe her family could fastpass lunch at BoG instead.

I know they are majorly testing the system. My sister was there with her friends last week and they were asked to test fast passes for fantasmic. And I've read in a lot of places they are going to start fast passing BOG at lunch.

I wonder how they will fastpass Be Our Guest? One would think a properly working software package would be needed. An RFID card could replace the magicband, but what would the interface be?

Disney is also playing around with fastpasses for the parades.

There is a FP+ link in my signature if anybody wants it.

There was supposed to be some testing, but I don't know what happened.

My guess is this is simply pre-ordering, and perhaps pre-paying. You go to the designated "check in" point, swipe, and go sit down, and they bring the food to you.

I have some questions as to just how much faster this will be, as I'm not sure they can pre-pull your order based on when you might show up...instead I think it's just to simplify things on the other side, with less register-loitering in placing orders, etc.

When all the software is up and running, a lot (or all) the quick service restaurants will be accessible through the app. Login, order food, choose a time, burn a precious fastpass+, show up, scan the bracelet, walk away with hot food.

But, without the online/app software, I don't see how one could order in advance without going to the restaurant and using the kiosk. I thought people were already using the kiosk and the rose.

I think this is just the next stage of testing, if they are even correct about it.
