A rumor was going around a few weeks ago that they weren't releasing cancellations back into the system, because they were so far overbooked.
Whether that's true or not, I don't know, but I managed to get a late ADR for my trip last week around 70 days in advance, then nothing popped up between then and my trip, even though I checked pretty much every day. I thought about calling the line once we got there, but I didn't bother.
I expect that as the novelty wears off, people will stop caring so much. Our dinner there was ok (I was the only one who really liked their entree) but I doubt I'll be upset if I don't manage to get an ADR in the future.
The main reason I wanted the ADR was so I wouldn't get stuck waiting in line in the hot sun with my 2 year old for lunch. The next time around I may do so.
All that said...when I went in for my ADR at 9:05pm, the ballroom was maybe half full. I don't know if they reduced their staffing at that point, or maybe if people had walked up right around then they could have seated them, so if getting a look on the inside is your goal, then popping in around 9pm (I'm pretty sure they close at 10) might be to your benefit.
