    BOG is a must do for us because we haven't been yet. We'll be in MK 3 evenings counting the party evening, but also want to do CG & Narcoossee's on nights we won't be either at EP or Cirque. I'd love to get an early 5:00 or so ADR and do BOG on party night and finish up in time for the 7pm start to the party. (we've been to MNSSHP a couple times before and I know you can get in with tix at 4, or has that changed?) So I guess my questions are:

    What do you think my chances are at getting that early ADR if I call (or reserve online) at 6am on 180 day?


    Is it feasible we'd be finished by 7pm if we do?


    Am I correct in thinking it would take less time at BOG than our CG & Narcoossee dinners?



    Thanks in advance. I've had lots of luck getting CRT ressies several times over the years, but this BOG is new!

    I think this is doable, but be forewarned, you may want to stay there longer than 2 hours, it is absolutely beautiful.

    I definitely think that you should have no problems calling at the 180 day mark (if you are staying on property, call at the 180+10 mark that they allow you to call at for a better shot at it though)

    Thanks! So call at 190 days from the date of the party? It's been a long time since I've made ADRs, but it was my understanding you can only call 180 days from the date of your check-in? But I guess that doesn't make sense because what about the people who aren't checking in. lol :eek:

    You call 180 days from checkin and can book for the next 10 days.

    Offsite guests can call at 180 days from the date of the reservation; they don't get the +10 benefit.

    Just so you know, we had a 4:50 ADR and barely made it to the 7:00 Dessert Party. We are not slow eaters, and the meal was actually really enjoyable, but I was just shocked that it took so long. I wouldn't have changed a thing about the meal, but I am not planning anything for after our meal the next time we go back. I just don't want to feel rushed.

    Thanks for the info! I don't think I'd mind being a few minutes late getting out, but just don't want it to run too long. I'm going to try my best to get the earliest seating possible.
