That is very misleading on the hour and half wait for lunch unless it was a holiday. The line would have had to be stretched way down the walkway! We have gone on two 10 day trips since they opened and have never seen it beyond a 30-45 min. wait, and that's extending a ways beyond the bridge! That CM was definitely 'off'!

Were there on April 16 and walked right in at 10:45 (about a 30min. wait, line was there at 10am, then was gone a little later). When we came out at 12noon it looked to be about 30min tops. We have been there 3 times and never waited beyond 25 min. (that wait was end of Nov.).

If you pick your times and don't eat right at lunch hour, it is usually no problem during the week days. We cancelled our dinner ressie after enjoying lunch so much!

The line had crossed the bridge leading out of BOG, turned the corner heading towards the rest of Fantasyland..,maybe 3/4 of the way to Gaston's. it wasn't a holiday but MK was strangely crowded that day. I have no idea if it was misleading or not as we headed to Pinocchio's...though even that was a 15 minute wait.

Wasn't talking about your take on the time, 'but' the CM's We saw the line out nearly that far along the stone wall also, but it tends to be 'stragly' there whereas on the bridge they 'tighten' it up a little better. The day we waited for 25 min. we were just barely on the bridge so I 'know' the wait could not have been more than half of what the CM told you.

They're just 'eye balling' it and some are not good about 'eye balling' Week ends and holidays do tend to be much worse though, and I would never even try to get in for lunch then (in fact, we have never, will never, go to the parks on holidays).

It's tough

I booked at our 180+10 date, at 7am, and could only get one time for the entire week in October, and that was at 4:30. Didn't like it, but took it. I've checked back every day since to see if I could find a later time and have had no luck.

I just booked this morning for our 180+2 day (A Monday). Was trying for 7pm, but had to take 7:25. That was the only time it offered me.

I'm just throwing this out there and I have no solid evidence to back this up. But maybe I had better success because I booked the reservation through the old website..via this link....

I had a reservation the night of Princess Half Marathon this February (booked on my 180 + 10 date at 7 am, I think) and there were two groups who were able to get a walk-up. They were told there would be a 20-25 minute wait, but that's about the wait I had - with my reservation. So never hurts to try!

I don't know, but for me I'll be booking at the 180 day mark. Not only do I want a very specific night, but we'll be NINETEEN PEOPLE! 7:00am 180 days out for me.

We had dinner there the 2nd night it was opened. Was very pleased that ADR's seemed to be running on time and we enjoyed a nice dinner without feeling rushed at all. Have ADR's for our upcoming Oct. trip. My entire family enjoyed it. We were in the Rose Room.

Another thing....we are a party of 10, so they had to break us up into tables of 4/4/2 for this trip. That was ok with us. Go out back to the garden and see the statues after your meal.
