Got my reservations this morning with no problems

We are going Dec 20-27 free dining and Christmas week. I was afraid I would not be able to get times, dates and restaurants for the days I wanted.

I tried at 5:59 and was not able to get through. At 6am, I started making reservations and was through in 15 minutes with the times, dates, and places I wanted

Very happy now..

Congrats, we are leaving as you are arriving, and we also were able to get everything we wanted...I actually got them twice as we were going two weeks earlier then shifted our dates after I had made our ressies at 180...I just knew I wasn't going to get to have the same luck, but actually had some better times for most of them.

We have similar travel dates but paying OOP for dining. We got everything we wanted with a little time shifting, day shifting, and two phone calls for what I couldn't get on-line.
Happy Christmas to us!

Yay! We had the same luck. With free dining, I thought it would be a lot worse than it was. We just adjusted times a little but got everything, too!

Congrats!

Me too!

I was able to get everything I wanted on the days I wanted them with almost the exact times that I wanted. Wow! It only took me about 10 minutes online. I was super excited and almost shouted out loud but remembered that my whole family was still asleep. My family doesn't get too excited with all the pre-planning of our trips like I do. They save all their excitement for the actual trip. 180 days to go!!

We're there December 21st-27th (cruising on the 27th ) and were able to get everything we wanted as well. There were several times available for the Tomorrowland Terrace Dessert Party on Christmas night and Be Our Guest on the 26th when we snagged ours online this morning.

Hope everyone else has a similar experience!

Are you staying at a Disney resort? If so, that's how you make all your ADR's at the 180 day mark.
