Of course I forgot that reservations opened up this morning

I tried a few nights in Jan and there were only 7:20ish times and 8:50 times left. Did 8pm fill up already? On all these nights?

thanks to all that contributed to this thread!

got our ressies for first week of December. Surprisingly got a friday night 12/6 no problem but couldn't get monday for the same week 12/2, maybe something going on that day. checked for both at 5:59

Reminder to those checking online, if you don't get a time for "Dinner" as a time choice, pick an actual time. It sometimes will say "nothing between 5:30 and 10:30" when "Dinner" is the choice, but you select say 6:00 and it will give you a bunch of times to choose from....quirky. same thing when you pick 7:30 and it says nothing within two hours, but you change it to 6:00 and you get times.

I also forgot about this and just happened to wake up about 20 minutes before the phone lines opened. Tried MDE to see if that would work and it said to call. Then tried the WDW website for the heck of it and that let me make a reservation. No problem getting the day I wanted for 7:30 in November. Can't wait to check out the changes.

It says NOTHING available for Dec. 2nd...for ANY time...I've plugged in a couple different times...for 4 people...5 people...6 people. (We have 5 of us.) It's like the restaurant is CLOSED that day. Or they didn't load that day. I'm trying to call, but of course all circuits are busy.

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?
word on the street is it opened online about 7 minutes before 6am

as far as "firework action" depends how fast/slow you eat, but I think 1:40 isn't that long for a meal there unless you rush. Plus, even if you finish early you can still go out on the observation deck to watch - unless you really want to watch from your table

You can request a window but it isn't guaranteed.

No issue booking one reservation for October (for two) and two more for December (fourteen and two, need our own on a separate night for two after dealing with the fourteen with six kids under 9).

Do you know what they do xmas night? We ate there Thanksgiving night a few years back and it wasn't the regular cooking crew or servers. It was also a predetermined menu. Was just wondering if that has changed or not because we go for Easter this upcoming year and was wondering.

Might not but they will certainly let you up at 8:50 to see the fireworks from the observation deck.
