So is ANYONE getting into BoG?

My 6 month window doesn't open up for another month but I've already been checking out BoG ressies to see if (hypothetically) I could get a ressie 6 months from now.

And....nothing. Zilch. Nada. Yowzers.

Is anyone getting in? I'll probably just stalk the website every day just in case but in my 8 years of going to WDW, I've never been shut out of a restaurant. Even Le Cellier.

Anyone having luck?

My 180 day + 10 window opened on Friday. I actually forgot it was Friday, I thought it was Saturday. I was still able to get 2 BOG reservations for 5 people at pretty decent dinner times. I wanted one of them at 6:45 on a MNSSHP night so that we wouldn't have to waste any park time eating, this way we can just eat and then leave the park.

I even changed one of the times around today. So I don't think it's impossible.

This past December was our 180 +10 date for our families upcoming June trip. I had no problem getting a reservation at BOG for our group of 11. Frankly I got the exact time we wanted as well.

Are you all calling or going online? I wonder if I'd have better luck calling.

What time does Dining open? My 180 day mark will be 5/12.

And yes, I know SOMEONE'S getting in but I'm guessing MORE people are getting shut out than getting in......

Even if you can't get reservations, they have cancellations that day you want to go or when you are there. You have to ask what is available as people do reserve and not show.

My family had this same reservation time. IMHO, it is actually the best slot available. We returned to MK around 7 after a swim and some well deserved rest. We were able to catch the Electrical parade from the train station. After the parade, we walked over to Casey's to view Wishes. By the time the fire works Were over, you have 10-15 minutes to walk to Beast's bridge to check in for your reservation. However, this was before daylight savings time. You may want a later reservation.

Well, to state the obvious, if you aren't getting in, it's because the reservations are fully booked, which means.......somebody is getting in.

Interesting to hear people say how easy they've found it. Our 180 day window opened on Monday and I was online at 5AM and the only time they had available was 9:20PM on the last day of our stay. So for six-nights they had ONE option for our party of 5.

I've checked it again every day since then with no luck finding anything else. Even tried smaller parties just to see what might happen.

I'm contemplating booking another dinner the same evening at another location and just hitting BOG for lunch. Then I'll cancel the 9:20 dinner. The park closes at 10 that night and I'm fearful, as one reviewer noted above, that we'll be rushed to eat and get out by the time they close - especially if we aren't seated close to our res time.

I agree. Granted I had a very small window (180 + 3) and only had ONE option for my entire stay. However, a friend of mine just got a reservation for Thanksgiving Day; almost a full week after her 180 day window opened. Weird.

I called on our 180 +10 (online was not working) and that was the first one I requested and got the time and date we wanted. We are a party of 8, but we requested 4:30 since we have a 5 year old that is used to eating at 5, so we all eat in his schedule while traveling! We know from last trip that by the time we are seated and actually have food a 4:30 reservation is about perfect! His school has lunch at 11:15, so dinner time has to be early too! A hungry 5 year old boy is not as cute as a full tummied one!
