I just tell them I am staying at the Dolphin, whether I am or not. If I tell them I'm staying onsite they want reservation numbers and linkage and all that and I have three different trips and five different reservations.

For once I was lucky! Started calling at 6:58 and just kept hitting redial. Got in at 7 and after one "autobot" question had a CM. Got WineView Lounge at PFTS which was all I wanted.

I would like to book a Tequila lunch, but... worried about my schedule and the "non refundable' part. I debated long and hard on Parisian Breakfast but decided that was really my only BCV pool day so...skipped it tool

She was very nice and did tell me that (a) she had been told that there were "limited' spots open today, which I assume means more will open tomorrow and (b) I had to pay with a Disney Visa.

Good Luck to everyone else giving it a shot!

Seems like you got the same CM I spoke with! I really thought I was going to lose it when she started reviewing all of the info on my resort reservations.

Finely! Just off the phone - 2/3 first choices - but we had a back up plan.
Frunch on Oct 11
Tequila Lunch on Oct 4
We were told the Hibachi experience was sold out, so we booked
Tokyo food and wine pairing on Oct 3
Good luck! Off to work.

Does it open at 6AM online tomorrow??

After holding for 25 min and being told that they were only booking Disney VISA card holders for a handful of events, I am now back on hold, for 35min and counting.

Think I'll bail out in the next few min if I can just try online tomorrow early.

Frustrating that they can't get all CMs on the same page!!!

Just hit the one hour mark. I'm hopeful that sold out just means the limited spots they opened for Disney Chase card holders are sold out, but I really don't want to have to go through this again tomorrow.

Same here. 55 minutes so I am behind many of you who have been on hold longer.

I haven't even seen what I want to book mentioned yet. So hopefully it will be available after I get through. We are going for a long weekend so there were only a few things that fit our schedule.

65 min on hold (called at 7:01) to find that Kitchen Memories on 10/25 with the Voltaggios is sold out. Agent checked for me and did find that there were only limited tickets released today and advised me to try again tomorrow when more are released. Can't wait.

Good question. I wish I had a good answer!

Everyone on the DIS is complaining about MDE, FP+. Magicbands, RFID and complaining about how they'll NEVER go back to WDW because of this. Guess what. The response Disney is getting for reservations to F&W events tells them that more people than ever will be going. They are getting more popular by the minute!

BTW - has anyone that was able to book received a confirmation e-mail yet? I wrote down the confirmation #'s the CM gave me, so not that worried. Just would feel a little better if I got the e-mail
