    Tried to get a BOG res on our 180+10 day first online right at 6am and then via phone right at 7am and there were no reservations for our entire week. I'm dissapointed and surprised that our whole week is already booked up but I guess I shouldn't be. Oh well, maybe next trip!

    This morning I went on line and got BOG for 10/24, which is the 4th day of our trip. (today was our 180 mark) There were also openings for 10/21, 10/22 and 10/23. The only day without an opening was 10/20, which is exactly 180 days.

    The old site nor the new site would work for me. So at 7AM, after being on hold for 20 minutes, I managed to get BOG at 5:30 on 10/27.

    Thanks, I looked again and it does seem that there is some availability for a party of 2 that week. Unfortunately, we are a party of 5. I'm thinking maybe because we arrive on a Sunday that is working against us (others probably hit their 180 day mark yesterday?)

    I had no luck with BoG either. I made an ADR for the Grand Floridian Cafe instead, which we all really like. Got everything else I wanted, so I guess I can't complain too much.

    If you tried on your 180+10, make sure to try again at exactly 180. They do not open up all the tables in the restaurant to the 180+10 crowd, only a portion of them.

    Did you try a party of 6? I've heard that BOG has trouble looking for tables for an odd number. You can always call later and make a change to the ADR. I'd keep trying, especially later in your trip.

    We were able to get a 5 pm on 10/27 online (old site) right at 6 am ET on Sunday (it was our +9 day).

    I was able to get BOG yesterday for our +4 and +7 days. Try an even number of guests when searching for a table, and use the UK site to search online.

    Huh, is this true? Why wouldn't they tell you that if you call? Today's my 180 and I couldn't get BOG the entire week for anything bigger than a party of 2. It doesn't thrill me to get up at 4:45am again on Thursday, but I will if it would really make a difference. When I asked the CM if I should keep trying, she said "No, it's full up that week."

    It seems like I can no longer access the old site on my iPad and my laptop is not working and on top of that we are only at WDW for 6 days so I need lots of pixie dust I think since I can only book 180 + 4 as our last day we will be on ME at dinner time. I wish my ADR day would get here so I could try to book BOG. The anxiety of will I get it or not is terrible.:scared:

    For some reason I kept getting a message stating they could not link my room reservation with dining reservation.

    It was so weird.

    Yeah, the 'My Experience' site is being really weird, but on the positive, I was able to book a later time for the Fantasmic! Dining Pacakge at Mama Melrose's today than what was found when I called on Sunday and asked the agent for the latest possible time. :confused3 I also found a CRT opening for one of our MK dates that I was consindering for a bit, but sadly I think DS will enjoy Cosmic Ray's more so I passed. :rolleyes:

    Just strange juju on the 'My Experience' site.

    Now if only they would open the SSR spa dates for October... but thinking I'll have to wait until later this summer when refrubs are done.
