Be Our Guest reservations for groups 16 and more

I called today (at 190 days) to inquire about reservations for a group of 16 people for Be Our Guest Restaurant. Disney dining twice said (I called back to confirm information) that for large groups 16-25 people that there was a special 4pm seating that we could reserve and all I had to do was email “Be Our Guest Special events” to acquire this reservation. Being a Disney nut and going twice a year, I have never heard of this…has anyone else? Has it worked in the past to get this special seating? How long did it take for Disney to respond to this email?

never heard of it. Best of luck! Sounds like at least they’re aware of large or special event type parties
