We are going in September for 5 days (4 MK and 1 Epcot)... Got two BOG ressies at 180 +10. Dropped one and was able to change it to later in the week as well! No problem which shocked me. But I did notice that my original reservation that I dropped was snatched up in about 11 seconds.

Hope it is worth all the hype!

We are going at the very end of Sept and i was able to get my ressie no problem. But I was up at my 180 +10 day at 5:00 am my time, and did BOG as the very first reservation I made. (We are going to BOG on our 7th day) There were several time slots available! But, when I decided to check on a different time later in the day they were all gone - so I guess I'm sticking with what I have!

Our window opens tomorrow, and y'all are totally freakin' me out.

If the Disney Channel didn't pimp out BOG so much, my kids wouldn't know the difference, but right now it's all they talk about!

If it helps, at least for ressies of 4, I am still seeing reservations open up to Oct 11th. So get online first thing in the morning and there is probably a decent chance.
Counting the days until our happy return!

Our window opened this morning, and I was only able to get a table for 4 for one night during our 6-night stay. (We are a family of five.) My kids want to go so badly that I will just send them with DH if I can't find a ressie for 5 between now and then.

We got two ressies for BOG on our 180+10 day three weeks back. We're at Disney World from 09/14 to 09/28. Admittedly, we used our YC CL concierge to book our ADRs so that made it easier.
I'd definitely phone up rather than use the website and aim for a date towards the end of the +10 period if you can.

I have been trying since our 180 day mark for Late Aug/ Early September, and I finally got one this morning for 5:15 on labor day! So, there is definitely hope!

We are doing 2 MK days on our Sept. trip. Planned on doing BOG on our first MK day but there were no openings at our 180 day mark. We were able to get a 5:15 reservation on our second MK day.

I was able to get reservations for 2 ppl for mid September. I made them on the first possible day (last month) - BUT I had to call in to the reservations line. The website would not let me make them at 180+10. No problem at all when I called though.

Good luck to everyone.

Is anyone getting in? I'll probably just stalk the website every day just in case but in my 8 years of going to WDW, I've never been shut out of a restaurant. Even Le Cellier.

Anyone having luck?
We got our first pick time at BOG in February right at 180 days. Got our first pick time again for our upcoming Sept trip. Each time, I was right on it early in the morning. Totally doable.

We've gotten Le Cellier and CRT every trip as well. I think it's still just a matter of really being on top of it first thing on that first morning if it's really important to you.
FP+, you ask?

If for some very strange reason you do not get a reservation there when your window opens, you could probably just walk up and eat there when your trip comes around. Good luck!
I wouldn't count on this. When we were there, there were a lot of people being turned away that were trying for a walk up. My DD also tried for a walk up a few days later and was turned away.

I'd keep checking every day, especially as your date gets closer. Some people make multiple reservations and then cancel the ones they don't need once they firm up all their plans. You could also see if your hotel concierge can help a day or two in advance. If someone is going to cancel, they need to do it 24 hrs. in advance or pay a fee.

Don't give up! I was really discouraged and didn't expect to find any BOG times for our August trip (which was finalized after 180). However, I was randomly checking about 3 weeks ago and found a 9:20 on one of our MK nights. Now, for our trip it works as there's no little kids accompanying us, but I would absolutely keep checking, even after 180.
