Bog?

Has anyone eaten at BOG yet? How hard was it to get reservations? I'm almost at my 180 mark and I've goen in everyday for the last week just to check out what the reservaton situation was and I have yet actually seen a spot. I figured it would be busy buy we are going the last week of August and this is the beginning of value season and so far no free dinning! I'm hoping that by Monday when I can make my reservations something will show up. I have two possible days one near the beginning and our last day so fingers crossed. Do have a back up plan just in case but I would be so disapointed if I didn't get to eat here as I love Beauty and the Beast.

We were at our 180 mark today and BOG was booked for the last ten days of August. I couldn't get anything. I have sent our request to the Concierge Level planners at the Polynesian to keep an eye out for a reservation. I am going to keep trying though. Here's to hoping!

Today was my ADR day, and I wasn't able to get a BOG spot (for three) anywhere in the ADR 180 plus 10 period. I was about 90 minutes late to the 6 a.m. online opening time.

It looks like you really need to aim for your last day, which is hopefully 190 days in the future. Good luck!

Last August I made my ADR's at the 180+10 park for this February trip that we are leaving on tomorrow. I checked at about 7:30 a.m. and it was spotty for times. I got a decent dinner time but it seemed there were a lot of either early or late reservations.

I think a 7 or 7:30 would work for us if we had to, we'd just eat and then do Wishes which would be fine!
Sounds like lots of us are in the same boat. Is everyone just checking online for tables or are you calling and doing it in person?

I think you'll be o.k. There were still reservations for 6:45 and later. Plus I imagine people are booking hoping for free dining and will cancel if it doesn't come or they change their plans.

I booked BOG about 2 weeks past the 180 day mark. It was one I couldn't decide on, but decide to book it. I was able to get two reservations...wasn't 100% on which day we will go b/c we still have to try to get the dessert terrace. I had no issues, but we go in June so maybe not as crowded. I bet one opens up.

BOG just opened up for late August and September

There are a couple of threads about BOG not being available -- people assumed that it was full but we began to realize that the restaurant had not released any tables for late August.

For anyone trying to book BOG for August 24 and later, they just opened everything up. If you try now you should probably be able to get a reservation. It is working both online and by phone. GOOD LUCK!

we were 180 out on Feb. 20. We're using Dreams Unlimited this time and Stacey managed to get us BOG for the evening we wanted, but it is quite late. I was so excited!!! Can't wait to try the grey stuff since we're celebrating our 37 anniversary there.

Awesome that you got the reservation for your Anniversary!

If you don't mind me asking, where are you guys staying. We must be arriving on the same day as we were at 180 on Feb 20 as well.

I heard dinner is hard to get. Lunch is nuts as well, friends told us that during their recent trip in January people would line up at park opening for lunch!

I have heard that reservations are now being accepted for late August. You may want to try now if you've been unsuccessful in booking a dinner reservation recently.

We're staying at AOA in the suites since there are 5 adults going. We'll be there Aug 19-25. How about you?

Just got back. Had lunch there. Had someone wait in line while we did UTS ride. Filled up the 25 minute easily. Kids didn't really enjoy meals (limited choice) but ambience was nice.

Try to go right after the lunch rush (say 12:30). By that time the early line rush has gone through and the line moves quickly!
