Are reservations easier to make now at 180?

We are going to WDW June 6-13 with the deluxe dining plan, so I have a bunch of ressies to make. I was wondering if it will be easier to make them now that they are taking them at 180 days versus 90, because some people don't plan that far in advane or dis to know you should make them, What do you think?

We are going to end of April/beginning of May and I have had no trouble getting what I wanted and even was offered a few I did not want. Think that you are correct that alot of people do not plan that far in advance. I really liked the online system and I called also.

It has been really easy and our dates were more like 130 days or so when we could make the ADRs, so I'm sure the 180 days would make it all that much more easier. I've looked up the really hard ones to get for my dates and there does seem to be some to chose from still.

My 180 window openned on 10/27 (yea, my bad luck). Yesterday I decided to add LeCellier for dinner one night and had no problem getting the day and time I wanted and it's been a week since my window openned. So I would say, yes it was easy getting an hard to get ADR.

Today was my 180 days. I got everything that I wanted. It offered me the hard to get ones as alternatives too! If you do it that first day, you should be looking pretty good.

I am about 30 minutes later than I wanted on one lunch. I'll keep trying for a better time on that one. Otherwise, I was very pleased. (got CM's, CP, Cellier, OHana dinner and breakfast)

Good luck!

Yes they are. We got everything we wanted within 5 minutes except for Le Cellier (we wanted 6pm for 2 and took a 530pm for 2) and Narcoossee's (we wanted 8pm for 2 and we took a 7:35pm for 2).

My 180 day mark was this past Monday. I was easily able to get every thing I wanted at the times I wanted, except the Fantasmic Pkg at Mama Melrose and of all things the Plaza Restaurant. They had Fantasmic pkgs for both nights at Hollywood & Vine and Brown Derby, but none at Mama Melrose. Le Cellier was available for every night May 1st-9th. I have no idea what was going on with the Plaza. It was not available until 1:30pm on my sixth day, but on each of the other days things like CRT, Chef Mickey's, Crystal Palace, and 1900 Park Fare were popping up as alternatives. Yeah, I could eat in the castle with the princesses, but couldn't get a hamburger and shake at the Plaza.

Oh yeah, I also couldn't get dinner at the Rose & Crown until later in the week (wanted it the first night, but not available, so took Le Cellier instead). Since when did the Rose & Crown become more popular than Le Cellier? lol
