Many believe that at least the Nov/Dec ADRs that are dropped are not being added back into the system, possibly because they overbooked in the first place. Nobody knows for sure. But I've heard countless examples where they have been dropped with the other person ready at the keyboard to catch it only to have it just not show up. I did this with an Ohana ADR for someone and it showed up no problem and they got it.

booked it TODAY--TWICE!


we are going for 11 days in MAy. Today was our 180 days out. I think you need to book ASAP when your date comes up. I think for the first year you will not be able to get near it without booking 180 in advance.
I got online at 6:40AM today and booked it for dinner for 2 of our nights. Now we have to wait...

I also got Le Cellier!!

I think the OP was asking if anyone had been able to book an ADR that someone else held during a booked up period and cancelled, particularly during November or December.

Congrats on your ADRs though!

I had been frequently checking for an upcoming visit, but with no luck. I was content when I snagged a Chef Mickeys instead and plan on making a BOG reservation for a visit early next year instead. Also, we may hit up BOG for lunch soon, if its not too crazy. Anyhow, good luck! Hope some times open up!

Congrats! Sounds like a great trip with some great dining!

In my case reservations for Be Our Guest were not being accepted at my 180-day mark... They only started taking reservations at the end of August, and they were gone before I knew they were available! Probably true for many of us going in the next month or so.

I was successful in modifying a reservation at BOG from 3 to 4 people in mid-January. The Castmember said it was based on total headcount for the restaurant rather then actual table count, but she was just as surprised as I was when she WAS able to modify our reservation

I tried coordinating with another diser and it didn't work. They cancelled and I tried for over an hour online and even called and talked to a cast member. They said that if something is cancelled it does go right back into the system. I don't know why it didn't work, but I'm still checking for one for our trip.
