It definitely does. No one I know has ever been able to get a dinner ADR. Lunch is a different story, it is counter service and much easier to get in. I did have to wait about 30 minutes in line the time I went but it was last November and had only recently opened. Hoping the waits aren't as bad this time as I couldn't get dinner so I'll be trying lunch again.

Thanks. So lunch is walk in first come and dinner is by reservation? Is that correct?

We had an adr for lunch and got right in. Maybe they are not doing that any longer? We even pre-ordered our meals. We had our food within minutes of sitting down. It was a good lunch but not one I would have stood in line for. I have heard from some that dinner wasn't worth it but again each person is different. When we were there two weeks ago there was a very long line for people waiting to get in and most of the same people were in line when we left about 30 minutes later. They were serving lemonade to those in line waiting as it was quite hot outside!

Lunch is CS, dinner is TS.

For lunch it is not and ADR per se, it is a FP+. They are still doing it, but like the entire FP+ system it is still in testing.

You'd be correct. :thumbsup2

For our April '13 trip I got VERY lucky as one afternoon in March I happened to check for BOG availability and snagged a reservation on the perfect date, at the perfect time. While on that vacation our 180+10 window opened for our October trip and though I've been attempting to secure a BOG ADR in a daily basis I've had zero luck. None. Zip. Zilch.

Thankfully, my Gram is coming with us. She's offered to be our BOG line holder for lunch and approach the podium at dinnertime opening on each of our MK days to see if we can get a table. I'm not giving up hope yet!

If you keep checking, you'll be surprised at what may open up. We planned a last-minute trip for later this month. Every day around 10:00 am, I'd check for BOG openings. A few weeks ago one opened up! You can bet that I grabbed it.

I got a dinner reseevation there last week for Nov. 12. So excited!

I booked a trip 162 days out. When I went to make ADR's everything I wanted was available, and at the time I wanted. I checked BOG and even that had two time slots open, which surprised me. It is usually only available at 180 days out.

We have gone there for lunch 3 different trips (twice each trip). We actually were able to get ADR's for dinner right after it opened for ressies. We went for lunch first, loved it so much, immediately cancelled our dinner ressies, and haven't even wanted to go for dinner since.

Have not waited longer than 10-25 min. for lunch either - in fact, walked right in once.

We enjoyed everything we wanted to enjoy of the ambiance, loved the braised pork (especially) so saw no need to pay more for dinner. You even get to choose where you want to dine at lunch, so we have experienced all the rooms.

We tried twice to have lunch here in septemeber with an hour wait each time. We werent willing to wait that long for lunch. Hopefully next time we go in a few years itll be easier to get in.

You have a beautiful family. Thanks for sharing. I never knew about the snow. It's beautiful. We got an ADR for our trip in March. You video made me excited for it.

Try to book any of your ADR for BOG at 180+10 if you are staying on site.
If off site, try 180.
Good luck with getting your BOG!
