Mine still shows that. I cleared cache/history/cookies, rebooted, used another computer. NADA! I'm checking Dec. 2nd.

Apparently it's THAT DATE. My date's not adjustable.

I got an ADR 11/15 for 7:20. I was hoping for an 8:00 but am so happy with what I got. I haven't been to CG since 2002 and can't wait to see the update, try the new menu and best of all it will be my mom and dad's first visit!
As a side note, where do we hang out to wait for fireworks which aren't until 9:30 that night?

Best of luck to all of you! I hope you get the date you are hoping for!

So what time did it open up? I got on at about 6:20 and got a reservation for 7:20 (I wanted 7:30 but that was not an option). Was it open at midnight as some had suggested? Or did people really hop on it in the 15 minutes it took me to wake my daughter up for school?

Will 7:20 get me some firework action at 9:00? I figure seating doesn't even really happen then--normally a wait.

Next question: Can you request a window seat?

Got ours for December too! Wasn't sure if Sunday, 12/8, or Monday, 12/9, would be better, as in less crowded. Made a ressie for both and will cancel one when I decide for sure.

I have 7:25 reservations on Sept 9th - Official opening day. I consider myself lucky because we are only in WDW until the morning of the 11th

I think that it getting pushed until the crush of summer was over as a good thing. congrats to everyone else on getting their ressies
Congrats! We are there opening night too at 7:30!

It opened at 5:53am. I have a 7:30pm reservation and I have typically been seated within 15 mins of the reservation and see the 10pm Wishes during dessert. However, we order sushi, apps, en tress and desserts typically.

I would say 7:20 for 9m Wishes is fine

Yes you can request a window seat when you check-in but there are no guarantees and not all window seats offer great views of Wishes....they do however all offer great views of the Seven Seas Lagoon area

Everyone DOUBLE CHECK your CG ressies. The website if working flakey for me, even though I searched for a specific date its making the reservation for a week later.
