Southwest Standard Awards - do flights eventually open up?

So, I had a leftover standard award that I renewed and wanted to use towards our trip in June. Our dates opened up today, but when I go to cash in my reward, there is ONE flight available to Orlando and NO flights available on the way back. Will these flights open up eventually as award flights, or am I stuck with this useless free flight? :D I tried looking at days before and after but saw that they similarly weren't available. Didn't have this kind of trouble around the same time a year or two ago.

Keep checking, others will open up. I had the same problem with flights to mco and eventually they became available. Is there another airport you can fly out of, that would work? You could book that and then change when the other opens up?

Well, problem is I already booked four of the five of us already. I actually used recently gained points on the first two tickets. So I was kind of surprised that I couldn't use the award flight for the same flight. Ah well, I'll give it a little while and then if worse comes to worse I'll just have to pay.
