Site down this morning? Also has anyone gotten Easter dinner?

Got up at 6am to try online ressies. Site was down. Called at 7. Got everything I wanted including a Be Our Guest ressie the night before Easter for a big party so I was happy with that!

Did not get Easter dinner. Wanted 1900 Park Fare but they had nothing. CM said that nothing showing loaded in for Easter night. He said keep calling everyday.

Anyone get any luck with Easter dinner?

I didn't get to book some of the places I wanted this morning either. I made back-up ressies in case I don't ever get them. For Easter, I wanted CA Grill but not in system yet so I reserved Yachtsman just in case. Congrats on getting something you wanted!

I think Cali Grill is closed for an extensive refurb and I don't think will be open at Easter. The rest of the restaurants, who knows what is going on? I can't believe they still don't have them loaded into the system.

I got Easter dinner at Boma and really want Chef Mickeys for dinner on 3/30. It seems like CM is not loaded into the system, or so I thought, because there's been nothing available on 3/30 and I've been checking since the first day my 180 day window opened.

I tried again today for CM on 3/30 and there was nothing. The odd thing was that I tried CM for 3/31 and there was availability for dinner. Wouldn't they load the dates into the system in order? Or could CM really be totally full? The CM's I've spoken to during the week didn't think it was full - they said it wasn't into the system yet.

I had the same issue this morning with the site being down. Very frustrating...I could have slept for another hour I was able to get everything that we wanted when I caled at 7 AM, but I didn't need to make ADRs for the 3/30 or 3/31. We are doing counter service on those days or going to Kimonos at the Swolphin. On 3/30, we will be at AK and prefer counter service there because we never know how long we will stay. On 3/31, we plan to go to MK early but leave when it gets crowded and we don't know where we will end up later in the day. We may just swim at AoA or go to TL or BB after 3 pm (when it gets less crowded).

I was able to book:
4/1 Sci Fi lunch at 12:30
4/2 Plaza dinner at 6:30
4/3 Biergarten dinner at 6:30
4/4 We are going off site to Medieval Times
4/5 BOG dinner at 6:30

Just glad I was able to book BOG and have it checked off the list

I've tried to book today for Easter Sunday at chef mickey the CM told me it wasn't loaded yet but it had been for dinner lasted in the week, she told me to try again as often as I could 1900 Park Fare wasn't loaded either. Apart from that we got everything we wanted so pretty pleased. I'll keep trying for CM and 1900 Park Fare though. Hope everyone gets what they want in the end xx

No. Still not able to get Easter dinner. Also can't get Ohana and 1900 Park Fare or the tea at the Grand Floridian.

Frustrating....I wish they would let us know what the time frame is for booking ADR's at these hard-to-get restaurants. Lots of us plan with detail and it takes away the fun when there are holes in the planning.

I got everything from 03/29 -04/09 that I wanted except Cape May still not loaded..

Breakfast at Norway with princesses and an easter picture.

I am second thinking Garden Grill for Easter dinner, but I dont know where else to go, and would love a suggestion.

It will be DH, DD8 and DD just turned 1, and me. (I thought we would be with family there, but looks like I need a back up plan as they may be going outta town. HA HA! I am so lucky to have a back up plan of Easter day at Epcot.

Please send me suggestions.

Try Cape May again - I just got that one this morning. It was my last one to load in the system, got Ohana and Chef Mickeys a couple days ago. Now I just pray my plans/dates don't change cause for the first time in a very long time I have every single ADR that I want.

As far as Easter meal, I had a hard time figuring that one out too. In the end, I decided to book a meal at the park where we will be and that's Epcot. I booked LeCellier.

You got Cape May? I just tried again to get it for Easter dinner and couldn't. Still can't get tea at the GF that week either.

Hmmm, I wonder if Cape May is doing something special for Easter dinner and that's the reason for the delay. I booked it for March 30, the day before Easter.

Called to see if they would take a reservation over the phone. No dice. I asked if Cape May was loaded into the system for Easter because there is plenty of availability for other nights that week. She checked and said it is loaded in and is full. I find that really hard to believe. I've never had a problem walking into Cape May for dinner even without a reservation. I know it was one of the restaurants that had something for Easter this year, but I can't believe it's full since we know they didn't even load the other dates until yesterday.

When I searched on Easter yesterday, I noticed that several of the "full" ones were buffets. I was wondering if they were planning something special so not in the system yet. I had been searching for Chef Mickey and it seemed it never came up, but shows full. I was able to get O'hana and now that shows full, so maybe they are just filling up so quick you don't see it unless you check every hour.
