I'm at 179 days+ and not getting availability????

Is anyone else having problems? I arrive 3/22 and cannot get a Boma dinner 3/22 or 3/23, a CM or 1900 Park Fare breakfast for 3/28 or 3/30. I can't get ANY--not just the time I want. I know it is Spring Break, but really???????????

I don't know if this is the same situation but on our 180 day window (arriving 2/1/13) there were several restaurants that were unavailable because they didn't have them in the system yet. Hope that is your situation!!

I am having the same issue trying to get ressies for Cape May. It shows no availability for breakfast from 3/22 - 3/30. I'm hoping it is because they haven't released dates as I'd really like to have a character breakfast at our resort.

Do you know how long until they were available?

So glad to see your post because I just tried to book Ohana dinner at my 180 day mark today and it says no availability there but yet lots of availability at Kona. I was VERY upset until I saw your post....now I'm hoping some restaurants are just not in the system yet, but I don't understand why they wouldn't be

I am at 178 days and still unable to book CM, 1900 PF, Ohana and Y&Y. I am checking morning and night but still no luck! My CM preferred date and time is for a birthday celebration for a child so I really, really want to get it nailed down ASAP. Just checked this morning and still no availability.

Same issue here - I am checking for Chef Mickey, 1900 Park Fare or Ohana for April 2nd, 2013 (it is is in the 180 + 10 window) and nothing! I could book Cinderella's or Crystal Palace or Hollywood and Vine or even Tusker House BUT I won't have tickets for the park that day - Our year pass ends April 1st.

I checked every day of our vacation from 3/30 to 4/2 and nothing for anything of those restaurants for the whole 10 days in the morning. Really?? That seems nuts, or since it is Spring Break are people getting all the reservations early??

Any thoughts? Are we all SOL?

Frustrated.

Dave

I was just going to post asking what time the computer rolls over to 180 days out. I was gonna stay up til midnight so I get my first picks but now I'm wondering if I should even bother. I can't believe Disney doesn't have it up 180 days out. Don't they know that people are waiting to make plans?

We tried booking online two days ago which was our 180 days.... When after a few hours nothing would come up as available, we called Disney dining on the phone and the rep told us they were having system problems. We booked over the phone and got ALL of our restaurants and times that we wanted. I suggest not waiting much longer and calling the Dining number.

I called tonight to check availability for the 4 restaurants I wasn't able to book Monday and the CM told me to call back as often as I can because they could load at any time. The CM who made my ressies Monday told me they may load once or twice a day but the one tonight seemed to suggest it is much more random. Now I am much more nervous that I will miss out on what I have not been able to book yet. Here's hoping that 177 is my lucky number and I get ADR's finished tomorrow!

When I tried to book our reservations online at 180+, it only took my first one for our first day. I called and the CM was not surprised. He was able to make the rest of my reservations for me, so I guess that is not uncommon. It attached the one I made to my reservation, so I know my reservation was hooked up to what I was trying to do. I get the impression it is not an uncommon problem, and was able to get everything I wanted.

I'm having the same problem this morning trying to get a Chef Mickey's ressie for March 30. It's showing availability for Akershus Royal Banquet Hall and Cinderella's Royal Table, though, so I think I'll be calling this morning...
