I personally wouldn't waste my time. We went to BOG last night and I really don't understand why everyone is so excited about this place. The wait, even with reservations was horrible, the service just ok and the food was mediocre. We sat in the main ballroom and it was noisy, dirty and clearly they were rushing us. We had a 9:15 pm seating and they were moving tables to clean, setting up for the next day service, etc. There was no regard for us trying to enjoy our dinner. I definitely wouldn't go through all of that for an expensive and less than satisfactory dinner.

Awww, sorry you had such a negative experience. That's part of why I try to stay away from those late ADR's. I'm always worried about getting the bum's rush. I hope you consider giving it another try later on down the road! We really enjoyed our experience there last March.

Usually easier to get an ADR that is later in your trip due to the people ahead of your 180 + 10 snatching up the earlier dates. My agent was able to get my third choice which is fine I made sure to plan 4 options for dates since it is a tough one. Good luck!

I tried online at 5:00 a.m. to book BOG for 11/1 for dinner and it was sold out. This was exactly our 180 day mark. Called the next day and got 11/8 dinner reservations at 4:40. Our DD decided to join us for dinner ( I told her I was not waiting for her to make up her mind - she knew for 3 weeks)and she was not able to get on our reservation. That would of been adding 3 more on our reservation.

So excited we got in. DD is going to try to go for lunch instead.

Do it for lunch! The line looks so long, but if you get in the line between 10:30-10:40 it's really not a long wait!

I was able to get a reservation for 4 at 7 p.m. on July 14th, when the 180 day window came up in January. I did it online and had no problem getting the time and date I wanted. I didn't even consider it a "score" because there didn't seem to be all the discussion about the difficulty in getting a reservation at BOG in January. Has all this demand just come up in the past couple of months? Are people seeing that others want a reservation there and it's hard to get, so now, all of a sudden, they want one too and reservations are even more scarce? It's interesting to see how these boards might fuel that.

We got a reservation for our anniversary. They will also be delivering a cake to the restaurant for us.

We will also do lunch on another day.

I logged on at 7 am EST on the day our window opened and had the choice between 4:15 and 8:30pm on our first day. I chose the 4:15 seating. I am so excited, I am the first person I know (other than some of my friends who are cast members) to snag reservations!

Logged on at 6 am today. I got a reservation for 180+6 at 4:15. There were other times available also. There was no availability on arrival day or for the next 3 days. After that there were times for the next days during my +10 time frame.

My 180+10 window opened today. We searched for BOG for a table for 2 for dinner for one particular night, and there were two options available, so we're all set!

We've tried unsuccessfully the last 3 trips to get a ressie at BOG. We finally were able to snag one for our upcoming trip this November. I booked it right on the 180th day from our trip and still wound up with an 8:55pm ressie and there are only 2 of us!
