I have to say, the thought has crossed my mind to find something else to do in place of the party (sorry!!).

Not sure what else we'd do instead though, can't think of anything comparable off the top of my head!
I booked a dinner at Chef Mickey's for the same night I want the dessert party in June. I figure if I cannot get a dessert party reservation, we would still have something fun to do earlier in the night.

Just called and March still not open. CM apologized about 5 times "for the inconvenience" so they must be getting a lot of calls!

This CM hypothesized that they may be finalizing spring break event schedules yet.

Since Disney does adjust Park hours normally about 2 weeks out and Easter being early this year Crowds in March could be heavier than normal and later closing times for MK which would make Wishes later.

I am expecting the booking to open up today, based on nothing other than this is the first Tuesday of the month a popular release day in the past

If you look towards the history of release times (first page of this thread, second post and the first post of the old thread--linked on the first or second post of this one), you'll notice that they are *usually* released in the afternoon to mid-evening.

We have already gotten so much later than any past release date. Is the historical info even much of a help now?

While this info is wonderful, and the effort it took/takes to keep it up to date is much appreciated and gives us all something to think about, I'm thinking that because of all the changes Disney is making across the board, that past event dates probably don't mean much. They are scrambling to get their new system working, and have huge issues to overcome.

That's just my opinion, based on my own experience with their website, messages and responses I've sent and received, and all the reports of CMs' confusion that folks here have reported.

Until they get their "house in order," we are in a HOLDING PATTERN...unfortunately!

While I agree there are definitely odd things going on this month are probably due to the system changes, I never put much stock into what CMs say in call centers. Anyone who hangs out on the boards know that CMs frequently don't have any real knowledge and give out misinformation. And those that are in the call centers aren't at Disney--many aren't even in Florida. They just make guesses; they aren't plugged-in in any way. They see only what is on their screen. Disney doesn't train the way it did a decade or two ago, and it is really showing more and more with each year. As old CMs leave, in addition to the lack of training, there is no passing off of information/skills on the practical level.
