    I went to the site and experimented for you with Mythos . It lets me book right up to October. So six months in advance.

    by location. I looked at June for Margaritaville and found no openings for a couple of days, but had no problem with weekends in April and May.

    Just had to deal with this on Monday. I was able to book Lombard's for our party of 9 for June 22. Tried to book Margaritaville, NBA City, Nascar, and Bubba Gump's on Open Table with no luck. Called each restaurant and Margaritaville told me they only take priority seating requests 30 days out. NBA City is 30 days out, Nascar is 7 days out, and Bubba Gump's doesn't take any type of reservation.

    Just remember...this isn't Disney where you have to make dining reservations nine years in advance. ;)

    The park and some hotel restaurants let you book way in advance.

    The Citywalk and other hotel restaurants are different.

    I'm trying to sort out our HHN day. If we're in the park that day I *think* we can stay in a holding area until HHN starts?(Stay and Scream?) Would Finnegans be the place to make reservations to have someplace to sit and relax to wait out the time? If so, in what rough time frame should the reservations be ?

    Finnegans is effectively part of the holding area so does get quite busy - can't think of timings off the top of my head, but someone will know what's best, I'm sure...

    Yes...you can hang out in the holding area once the park is closed with your valid HHN ticket for that night. Finnegan's would be the place to eat/drink and be merry before HHN starts. I would suggest no later than 4:30PM...maybe a little earlier. Finnegan's will fill up very quickly around that time of day.
