You can. You just have to wait until after day 1 of your vacation for day 8 to open; after day 2 day 9 will open, etc.

You shouldn't have any problem getting a BoG FP+ for the last three days of your vacation. You'll be able to book for day 8 on day 1 of your stay, and for day 9 on day 2, etc. (I think I got that right, but you get the drift.) There's plenty of availability for BoG FP+, even on the same day, so please don't stress about it.

Marymac123, what day are you checking in and what day are you wanting to have lunch at BOG?

Today they are booking for August 26th.
You will be able to book the BOG FP 27 days from the date you want to eat lunch at BOG. It doesn't open the first 7 days up like the ride FP's, it opens 1 day at a time

Your ticker indicates 3 weeks + 6 days from the day you are going which would be August 26th (unless the ticker is wrong ) and you should be able to book the BOG FP for August 26th today.

If you are wanting a BOG FP for August 27th, you can book it tomorrow, 28th will be available on Friday, etc.

Hope this helps

If you arrive on the 26th, you should be able to book for the 26th today, yes. Then tomorrow you can book for the 27th, and so on. All the way up to the seventh day of your stay, but you won't be able to book for anything beyond then until after you arrive on-site.

This!!! We had ours booked in advance, however, our ride FPs went faster than expected and standby lines were too long so we wanted to eat earlier. It was about noon and our BOG ressie was for 1:20. I literally stood in the middle of Tomorrowland and pulled up the website. I kept refreshing the screen and tons of different times were popping up. After about 3 refreshes, a time for 12:10-12:30 came up. Booked it, walked over to Fantasyland and checked in immediately!

I just tried to log in and check to see if my October dates were available and got a pop up window that said this: We apologize for any inconvenience. Please stop by the Magic Kingdom® Service Center as soon as you arrive to the park for assistance logging in to the website or selecting an arrival window and preordering your meal.

Does that mean that the website is no longer working unless you receive the email invitation?
