This is one of the mysteries of the universe....ha ha ha

No one knows when, how, or why they open reservations the way they do. Seems pretty crazy!!

It used to be that they would open reservations about 90 out. However, in the last several months, it's been closer to 30 days out. Take a look at he first few notes in this thread for lots of great info!

So, June may not open until end of April or early May...

No one can say for sure when the ADRs for a particular month will open.

Recently. ADR's have been opening one month before the first of each month, but keep watching this thread or checking yourself because there really is no telling. They could even open up the whole summer tomorrow.

Challenge: Is there a genius obsessed fan out there that fit the past ADR windows to a pattern of some kind? The less logical the better!!

Right now there isn't enough info available to figure out a pattern with the new way they have been doing it.

January 2013 opened on November 23, 2012. 38 days out.
February 2013 opened January 3, 2013. 28 days out.
March 2013 opened February 6, 2013. 22 days out.

Other than the amount of days slowly dwindling down, I can't see any kind of a reasonable pattern developing. Considering all the given info, I am giving an educated guess that April will open on March 11th. By educated guess, I mean that I closed my eyes and put my finger on the calendar. That's about as close to accurate as you can get at this point. Random guess!

For those who HAVE eaten there, do you think there will be time after our 8:40 reservation to eat (and enjoy the experience) and get out to see the parade and fireworks by 10? The park is open until 1AM, but I know the three of us "mature" ladies will not be able to stay that long and have any chance of getting up to hit an early morning entry the next day....
I like it's cutting it a bit too close! At least for me, I know I would feel a little stressed and rushed at dinner and I definitely don't like that. We just ate there this past weekend - now keep in mind this was a very busy, holiday weekend, but I think BOG is pretty much always booked so it may not be very different. We had an 8:00 reservation, were seated around 8:15. By the time we finished dinner, got the check, quickly checked out the other room, and got our picture taken with the Beast and got outside, it was 9:45. Dinner there was absolutely amazing though.

If you can I would try to do the dessert party a different night. Too close for comfort in my opinion! Plus the dessert party pretty much ends as soon as the fireworks are over, so even if you made it in time for Wishes you wouldn't have much time to eat any desserts or really get your money's worth.

Thanks everyone, for your thoughts about BOG and Dessert Party.

I guess the thing is that I LOVE the MK fireworks, and we traditionally spend the last night in MK so we have that "magical" feeling of Disney at night as a big finale. So, it's a really hard decision for me.

So, I'm thinking that if I can't score a canceled BOG ressie earlier in the week, I'll have to do the Dessert Party another night. I know based on the experiences of those who have eaten there that dinner at BOG would be also a great evening - and who knows, maybe we'll start a new tradition and a fitting way to end the Girls Only wild and crazy trip!!!

In the meantime, I'm going to keep my fingers crossed that a cancelation comes through!

Waiting for May. I guess I will wait awhile.

I need to book for like 15 people. Will it be possible to do that online or will I need to call?

I just went to check and it would let me choose up to 14 people so I think that you may have to call. Good Luck

They told us 30 days on the phone this week when we called again for our family trip. I feel like it is a big secret...why is this one such a mystery I just keep calling every couple of weeks. I really want this reservation bad, but I think it is only because it has become such a challenge

You have to take anything the CMs at the calling center say with a grain of salt. They have as much info as we have concerning the dessert party...People who call have been told a wide range of things, from "March would open on Feb. 1st." to "March, April and May are all going to open on Feb 15." Neither of which was accurate.

That's so funny...that's the same date we have the ressie for, that I would love to trade in for one earlier in the week!

Just shows how everyone's trip is different!

If we see you there, we'll say hi...we'll be three "mature" ladies, resv time is 8:50...
