Ya know, with all the money Disney makes, you would think that their IT dept is up to par. UGH.

Oh I see, some of the pages have a section to check for availability. The Parisian breakfast does not. When I look at the 3D dessert there is a wonky check availability thing-ey that does not work.

Thanks Disney, for another great customer service experience.

Yes, actually. I've been fortunate enough that I can be ready to dial right at 7:00:00. I get dispensation to use our company phone system, which, I'll admit, usually gave me some advantages with where it dials out, and so forth (TL;DR, really). I usually have a whole list of events and I get whatever I wanted with no issue. I know something about phone systems and getting this fast busy is actually kind of bad. If there is an issue with making reservations, it's not all that hard to have a recorded message advising people of this. Then maybe idiots like me wouldn't keep whanging away...

I don't have one either - Is it a signature event? If so - I think those you can *only* book over the phone, so there probably isn't an online option.

For the record:
Phone 1: On hold 28 minutes.
Phone 2: Busy signal for 27 minutes.
The CM said that she could book regular dining reservations, just nothing for the F&W festival. I had her check a Kitchen Memories event & a deminar. She told me, "I was able to book the seminars yesterday for Chase Disney Visa holders, so I don't know why it isn't working today." Everyone is reporting problems.

Somehow I was lucky enough to get through exactly as the lines opened at 7 am. I didn't get an estimated wait time nor did it play any music. I was on silent hold as were some yesterday. However at 6:17 am a CM came on line. I was only looking for one luncheon which didn't have any "Chase" spots left by the time I got through yesterday but they DID have availability today

So I am all booked for the Italian Food and Wine Pairing on 10/10 and everything shows correctly on MDE.

Good luck to everyone!!

The breakfast is probably one of the events that you can only book over the phone.

I didn't even look at the 3D desserts, because I'm probably not going if I can't get Sweet Seats, and cant book SS online either.

Yeah, I gotta say, I hope the onsite experience is a lot better than the experiences I've had trying to book stuff in advance. NONE of those have gone well.

https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/di.../3-d-desserts/

but it does not work.

Really hoping they fix the IT problem people are reporting before I get to the CM's.

The signature dinners page does not have any check availability links (at least when I log in). Is anyone else seeing them?

Skipped last year or two

No French Regional Lunches. Got on at 07:05. No hold time estimate. Getting ready to drop. Can only take so much of this music!
