I was worried about not being able to make a reservation if we were not at a Disney resort, but I just ignored the log in and reservation link and it took me to where I could enter my name and contact info. Did not finish since we are not going until November, but is really easy!
Odd thing, I typed in Boma and nothing came up on the search engine. Had to click on the All Restaurants and then look for it in the list.

That is what I am dealing with, being on the West Coast my TA would have to make them at 3... Pretty sure that one is not going to happen...

Which is why it should be 7:00 AM for everyone...travel agents, online, and phone.

I see this whole online system being very problematic for people, particularly DVC (seeing as how people can't even use a DVC reservation number so far!)
I was replying to the person that was saying that she may cancel with her TA because she can't pull up her room reservation to book her 90+10

With the online booking for dining that is now open to everyone everyone will have the same options as travel agents. I don't know how the DVC reservations are working so can't help there.

The person that is booked through a TA is not a mind reader and cannot know what their TA will or will not do for them if they don't ask the questions directly.

I totally agree with you here as it should be the same. A cm on this board noted the other day that the online booking will be available at 6am or was for the cm option of booking for themselves.

Something is going to have to be done to address the fact that DVC ressie #'s don't seem to work in the system.

My wife is currently talking to Member Services to see if they offer any sort of solution. I'm thinking not, but it's something that TA's couldn't test...and it creates (assuming the 3AM roll over time from the TA test stays put) an unlevel playing field.

That's not what I mean...there have been reports that travel agents have been able to get into the system earlier in the day than people could call in. Whether that's true or not, or whether I've (and a lot of other people) have been misunderstanding, I don't know.

I agree that there are "some," but the reality is that they are few are far between. You are correct in that it is worth asking to find out what their process is, esp. now with the use of the online booking, but I think in the majority of cases people are not going to be happy with the response they get from their TA.

Yes, but now if you use a TA you will be forced to either call or let them book online dining for you 90+10. It is not okay with me that I can not do online booking 90+10 because I used a TA!

Yeah, but if that's the case then now everybody has that "advantage." We won't know for sure until tonight but I would think that the dates would roll over at the same time for everybody.

Which goes back to my original complaint that DVC reservation numbers don't work in the system...

Disney obviously has a lot of work to do with this system. They shouldn't have released anything until it was fully tested for ALL of their customers.

I am SOOO excited! I booked my ADRs last week and was happy, but I am finding some better times online than what I got. Are we positive everything will work okay if I book new ones online? I am SO scared I'll book new times, cancel my old ones, and find out something went wrong. As long as I have the confirmation #s I should be okay, right?
