SO disappointed about ADRs- advice needed

We called up to make our ADRs 180 days in advance and there is NO Be Our Guest availability at all! For the entire duration of our stay- 12 days!!! I am terribly disappointed. But in disbelief that every single day would book up within hours of being available.

Is there any likelihood that more availability will come up? I was really looking forward to this restaurant

Right now BOG is the toughest ADR to get. I would keep trying because you never know when something will open up

Good luck!!

Keep trying!! People constantly change their plans and cancel. We had to change our dates and it took me a few days of obsessive refreshing until I got lucky enough with an ADR on our day and even the time we wanted! And just a few minutes ago I coordinated with another DISer canceling the one we didn't need anymore to cancel at the time she could try to snag it.

Odds are in your favor that within the next six months something will pop up at one point or another!

When you made your ADRs, you could do 180 days out plus 10...your stay is 12 days. Did you try back the following 2 days from the original 180?

BOG is tough to get. I've been following the threads because it's one that my family wanted for our Dec trip (but we will be a party of 15, so I think I need to forget about BOG). I have heard folks getting ADRs at various points after the 180 day window (like Disney opens bookings along the way and not just all at 180+10). So, keep trying. We'll, maybe, try to walk up for CS lunch there.

I will be going in August to WDW. Until a few weeks ago I didn't know about DISBoards, ADR's and the 180 day mark.
That being said I quickly found out that BOG is the toughest ADR to get. I searched every day, multiple times a day for every day of our trip and nothing was ever available. A few days ago though I did get an opening for our first day of our trip.
I think you still have time and hopefully something will open up.

I too am curious about whether you were able to book with the 180 + 10 days rule? My 180th day is coming up in a couple weeks and I am soooo hoping to get a BoG reservation. I've got a couple days I'm trying to get including my 11th day so maybe I'll be able to get something.

What dates? How big is your party? If it's a big party, you might have better luck splitting in 2 smaller groups.

You didn't say if you were staying onsite. If you were calling everyday for exactly 180 days out the availability didn't disappear within hours. They were probably already gone.

I recently made my BOG ADR 180 days from check-in for day 6 of our trip (so, 186 days from ADR time) without any problems. I got my desired day and time. This restaurant seems to be booking up before 180 days out right now.

I would say to keep trying. It doesn't hurt.

We booked our trip under the 180 day mark. I was able to get 2 ADRs for BOG. I just kept checking every day, sometimes a few times a day, and something opened up.

Keep checking. Especially in the 45 day range. A lot of people start to firm up their plans and make cancelations.

Keep trying! We managed to get 2 BOG reservations for our trip. Just feel checking and you might be able to get a reservation. People cancel or change their plans. It's the toughest reservation to get.

Please don't post requests or offers to transfer restaurant reservations - that's not allowed on the Restaurant boards because WDW says that the reservations are not transferable. On the Reservations board you'll find cancellation threads, where readers post the cancellations they make and you can try and grab one.
