No Akershus lunch in December?

Lunch spots are not showing up in December (I called to make sure it wasn't a wonky online issue, CM confirmed there were no lunch reservations for Akershus in December at this time) so I wanted to start this thread in case anyone knew why, and in case anyone else was interested in keeping a look out to see if lunch spots open up.
Thanks!

Epcot in December means places are using lunch reservation as part of the Candlelight Processional Packages, that would be my guess. So, they will release them when the CP is available for booking.

Not sure if that is the case, but assume someone will come along who knows for sure!

I heard this theory and I like it Guess that means I should find a thread for when CP dates are released...

I've been going with this theory as well as I've noticed the same thing for all of the Epcot restaurants we've been trying to get... Akershus, Coral Reef, Biergarten and Rose & Crown. Given that it is all of those, I think that there must be something to this theory.

Yup, this happened to me last year. Ended up eating at Via Napoli--Yummmm!

We were trying to get in at Coral Reef, and so after DISing, I realized it was a happy thing that CR was blocked off for CP.

Yup, they hold the lunch and early evening reservations until the finalize the plans for the CP packages. Once those are set, you'll see some lunch reservations come open (though a good number are held for CP packages).

Last year, every restaurant except Akershus, Marrakesh, Monsieur Paul, Le Cellier (dinner), and Coral Reef participated. So maybe this year Akershus is going to or (more likely) the ADRs for all Epcot restaurants are being limited while planning is occurring.

I called yesterday and have a 11:00 at Akersus on the 24th and got in to CRT at BBB on the 22nd (if I remember my days right).

Now I just have to convince my husband we need to go to Disney for Christmas ... I kind of forgot to do that part first.
