Question about getting a dinner ressie at Ohana ?

I have been searching the WDW site every day several times a day trying to get a reservation for dinner for Sept 8th. So far all I have managed to grab is a 9:20 pm. Do you still think it may be possible to get one at least 8:00 pm ? Do you think I will have any luck on that if I check online or call close to our arrival date ?

Unless it has changed recently, they give silk-flower leis now.

Anything is possible...

I would recommend simply being persistent. There are numerous posts on the boards of individuals trying desperately to secure an ADR months before their trip, and finally snagging the elusive ADR a couple of weeks, or even a week, before their trip. You will also find posts from folks that called to try to get an difficult ADR and were successful, but conversely others have posted that they tried to call and were unsuccessful. There are no set rules about trying to book these ADRs, and sometimes it simply comes down to being at the right place at the right time.

Good luck!

I would keep checking ... you never know when something will become available. How many people will the ressie be for?

Keep doing what you are doing...I recently had 'Ohana success

Due to family issues I completely forgot to book any of my ADRs at the 180 mark...only missed it by 100 days

We are DVC members and are staying at BCV in just 2 weeks..after that we are headed for the Poly for three nights and really wanted to try 'Ohana, but never had any luck. I tired many times a day since June, and nothing was available. A few days ago I tried and assumed, like always, no availability. I watched the August cancellation thread...nothing worked for me I almost fell off my chair a few days ago when a 6:40 ressie was available...so I grabbed it, quickly . I was like .

I had been playing with different ressies and number of guests and I thought I made the ressie for 2 instead of 5...slight panic attack but after viewing my ressies on line everything was fine

Just keep checking! Hope everything works out for you...sending you tons of

No hook. We used an over-the-door shoe organizer, but the door wouldn't shut all the way. Someone on this thread recommended those 3M Command sticky hooks so you can hang an organizer - GENIUS!

Has anyone been at the Poly since 8/1? Wondering how transportation is leaving MK after late EMH? Does the large paddle wheel ferry boat run to the TTC? Are there special buses for the deluxe resorts? Reports on Liners have not been good. I'm in an ECV and am worried about our upcoming trip...in 46 days!!

Ah OK ... was just curious if it was for a larger group and maybe that's why you couldn't get an earlier ADR

I totally agree with this! Just keep checking. There are always cancellations from people switching. You never know what you can get.
