Thank you for the trick on finding the 44 number. I had a 5 digit orbitz number and it would not take it. Your trick of looking at the URL worked!

This whole thing is a bit of a learning process all round - and for Disney too, I hope!

We were there Saturday, July 19, and there were two separate lines. They stayed separate all the way to the spot where the CM stands before sending you into the ordering room (which BTW is WAY too small. It's always such a crowded mess in there.)

Another way to get the reservation number...

Being an international guest, a lot of the ways to get the 12 digit reservation number didn't work for me. I tried all the URL ways, but couldn't get them to work either.

What did work for me was my Memory Maker confirmation number

Were they handing out return time cards that day? If not, I think that's what was different. When I went there was only one line on the bridge, not two. No merge point.

My FP made it so I didn't have to return later but I still had to wait on the right side of the bridge. I saw a group go down the left but they must have preordered their food. I didn't.

And, yes, that room is too small!

It didn't look like they were handing out return cards because there was a decently long line on the right. We walked all the way down the left side, into the castle, and then about halfway through the knight room before we hit the rest of the FP+ line. We didn't preorder our food, but there was a CM at the computer right at the entrance to the knight room that was greeting people who preordered.

August 30th Not Open Today?

We are looking for August 30th, but when I went to reserve we only had until August 29th. Anyone else looking for this date have the same issue?

It will say there are none available until 27 days before the day you want to eat there.

Try again tomorrow. I assume you can see the date within your seven valid bookable days, but when you click on the specific day you want you see no availability listed?

Thanks Andre! I will definitely try again later today and tomorrow. August 30 doesn't show as an option at all. Up to the 29th it is highlighted a light blue, but the 30th is not highlighted. Just in case I tried on the computer and phone. Nothing for either. I'm wondering if anyone else is having the same issue or is it just me.

P.S. Love your insight on POR! We love staying there
