OMG- Got BOG...Then lost it...Then got it!

Ugh...I want to cry. Only ADR we didn't get was BOG. So since our April ADR date, I've been trying for our time. When I work from home (2 days a week), I'm constantly checking...maybe every hour.
So for about the 17th time today, I did a refresh on my query. I think I went back to work, not expecting to see anything and when I looked back (maybe 30 seconds later), I saw a 5:40pm time. Wow...perfect! So I selected it. It asked if I wanted to cancel our current ADR, which I tried, but then it brought me back to the main dining restaurant page. Does that mean that in those 60 seconds someone else grabbed it? Or would it be a glitch in the application? I am soooo annoyed. I keep checking hoping it was a glitch and it will reappear. Has this happened to anyone else?

Yes this happened to me about a year ago ith BOG. I called immediately and i was told it was a Ghost ADR OOOOOOOOOO SPOOKY. Just means that someone else grabbed it before you did. Keep trying the closer you get to your date you may have some luck

I am so mad at myself. I think I hesitated...first wasn't expecting to actually see a time. Then was double checking I was on the correct date. So can't believe in that short time, some one else grabbed it. I mean, what are the chances someone else is hitting 'find table' for the very same ADR day and at selecting the button at the exact same time?

With BOG,there is a very good chance. You really need to book at 180+10 days.

That being said, there is usually walk-up availability as well, if you are willing to wait for about 20-30 minutes.

UPDATE*** So I have kept trying (just in case it was a glitch with the system). After about 50 minutes from when the issue occurred, the same time slot appeared again So it looks like it was a glitch and I probably locked myself out.

Yahhhhh! So got BOG!

I know...lots of acronyms around here

BOG stands for Be Our Guest. The new restaurant that is really tough to snag an ADR.

Congrats!! That's so encouraging! When you were checking, were you searching under "dinner" or searching using a specific time? Not sure if that would make much difference, but hey, I'm willing to try anything!

Thank you all. Very happy, and hope for others. Also to know if the system doesn't work quite right, then to keep trying as it may have locked the selection until it times out and releases the time again (I'm guessing that is what happened).

I was already signed in (Chrome seems to keep my signed in. Explorer for some reason never keeps it, even though I say to 'remember me'). I entered the time that I wanted. e.g. 6pm, which seems to search in range of 4:30pm - 7:30pm (and it found 5:50pm). Sometimes too, I would back it up to 4:30pm to see if it would make a difference.

Good luck! I totally wasn't expecting it at this point, and it popped up, so just keep trying.
