    Here's the deal.

    CG was not available for booking on 11/16 - 180 days out from today. I was able to find a decent time for 11/23, though, for a party of ten.

    I got the email that ADRs were being taken as of 11/16 at 1:30pm today.

    The 1st booking I could do tonight was 11/23. Again, for a party of ten.

    I hope that helps some of you! Good luck and get on that phone EARLY!

    There is no official word about September/October. I think there is still a good chance for late September onward, maybe earlier. Fingers crossed for good news soon!

    We need to keep on this. This has a disney-drama feel to it, but dinner w/ DH while were down for F&W is worth a little drama.

    Glad folks are getting their November ressies. I called an hour ago and was again told its opening late Summer with no further info available. So much for mid-Sept. ;-(

    Oct 23 is our 19th anniversary (dating, not wedding, but we always celebrate it because we both have big work deadlines around our wedding anniversary so can never do anything then), and we were hoping to get a reservation for that night.

    We're staying CL at AKL and have a message in with the IPO to book us at cali grill for dinner on the 23rd as soon as reservations for that date open (assuming they'll be open in mid-Oct.). Once they've made the ressie, IPO will email us with the confirmation number. So, I should find out that way, and hopefully I'll remember to post about it on here. :)

    Congrats on the big anniversary! I hope you get to celebrate it in style!

    There are reports of ressies made for 11/18th on another thread. Still hopeful for October!

    IIRC the podcast team mentioned August 31st as the opening date during the 7-in-7 Contemporary Review they released yesterday.... Not sure where they heard this but I sure hope they're right! :confused3

    as they dont have an official opening date announced yet they cant open any earlier reservations. My guess is that they will open mid-late sept as planned but are nailing down a date. I dont see why we wouldnt be able to book from that date as soon as its available.

    Im hoping for october 16th which is my last night.

    I was told by IPO that CG should be open by early Sept., but won't be taking ressies until right before it opens. I guess they don't want to take ressies without the restaurant being actually ready to open. I hope she was right on the dates.

    It's the concierge on the club level of the resorts that makes ressies for the people that are staying club level.

    They're taking reservations for Nov 18th and later. Before then they aren't accepting yet.
