Well, I'm glad it's not just me! Today is my 180 day mark and I couldn't get Cape May, Ohana, 1900 Park Fare or the tea at the Grand Floridian.

Stinks, doesn't it? Now I guess we have to wait and wonder when the restaurants will be loaded in the system. I wonder if we call and ask if there is a certain pattern they follow for those certain restaurants (since it isn't 180 days as advertised). Like do they release them one week at a time or one month at a time, etc. Right now it looks like they are loaded through March 16.

Yes, it's frustrating. Now I'm debating whether to go ahead and make backup reservations (esp for Easter) or wait. Guess I will have to be patient for a little while longer.

I went ahead and made backup reservations. I can always cancel them when CM and Garden Grill open up.

This does happen occasionally, particularly around holidays or other special events. For example, I was trying to make Garden Grill reservations for early December at the 180 day mark, but some EP restaurants were not loaded into the system yet as they were still trying to figure out the Candlelight Processional dining program and seating times. I did ask the CM when the restaurants would be in the system and was able to get a date. I went back online on the date given and was able to get the reservation. If you haven't asked already, I would call Disney dining and ask them when they think the restaurants will be loaded into the system. Hopefully they can give you a date so you don't have to check every single day.

I just called disney dining and talked to an agent. She checked my date of March 24 for Ohana and of course no available tables popped up. I explained the whole thing, and she confirmed it's only in the system thru March 16. She went one step further and said she could check the system to see how many tables were booked there for that date and the answer is zero tables booked. So at least we know we should be able to get our ADR's if we check diligently for the system to load. I did ask her if she knew a specific date when that would happen, and she said no.

Snap.

Looks like its going to be daily checking for the forseable future to get ADR's for the end of March 2013.

One odd thing that has cropped up is that the Garden Grill is now showing available, although I cannot seem to get a time after 3.30pm , and apparently is doesn't open until 4pm. From not available to almost no availability had me curious, so I phone DD and over the Easter period it is open from 3pm although I will keep on looking for a later slot as 3.30 is a touch early for an evening meal.

OK, really odd.

CM now has availability for Easter Sunday (31st) for dinner only. Wasn't our original plan but I will take what I can get for now and cancel later if we can get better reservations.

Checked every other day of the trip from 17th March to 3rd April for CM. Nothing apart from the 31st dinner. I guess the rest will be on soon(ish).

As of about 15 minutes ago, I finally got Ohana dinner for during Easter week. Still could not get Cape May dinner. But at least it looks like the system may be loading.

Woo hoo! I finally got my 3/19 Ohana and 3/21 Garden Grill ADRs! I've been trying for two weeks. Finally, I can relax.
