    It's not totally uncommon. When are you traveling? Are you just now at 180 days?

    My 180 day mark was a week and a half ago, and I've not been able to make ADRs for Ohana or Garden Grill. It seems that's just the way it is at the moment. I've been calling each day, and I suggest you just do the same. It'll open up eventually.

    I was also excited at my 180 day mark only to find I can't book most restaurants, and still can't even now. Why do they advertise booking 180 days in advance if you really can't? :(

    I got very frustrated about that ... waited so long for my 180 day mark to know that I couldn´t book the most desired ADR´s, sniff! :sad2:

    so I've had a really slow morning at work so far, and been playing around on the dining reservation site...

    Chef Mickey & Ohana are book-able up to the 16th of March. So apparently they're about 10 days behind the other restaurants.

    I don't know about Cape May/1900.

    This makes no sense to me whatosever. If you're going to have this ridiculous 180-day ploicy (sorry, had to throw that in there :p )....you should have ALL the restaurants loaded into the system and ready to go at that 180-day mark. If that's not possible for any reason, then they should reconsider the whole 180 days altogether.

    I was able to make a reservation for 1900 Park Fare for Feb 8, 2013. I did this back in August using their website reservation system. Maybe it is a temporary glitch. :confused3

    Well, I'm glad it's not just me! Today is my 180 day mark and I couldn't get Cape May, Ohana, 1900 Park Fare or the tea at the Grand Floridian.

    Stinks, doesn't it? Now I guess we have to wait and wonder when the restaurants will be loaded in the system. I wonder if we call and ask if there is a certain pattern they follow for those certain restaurants (since it isn't 180 days as advertised). Like do they release them one week at a time or one month at a time, etc. Right now it looks like they are loaded through March 16.

    Yes, it's frustrating. Now I'm debating whether to go ahead and make backup reservations (esp for Easter) or wait. Guess I will have to be patient for a little while longer.

    I went ahead and made backup reservations. I can always cancel them when CM and Garden Grill open up.

    This does happen occasionally, particularly around holidays or other special events. For example, I was trying to make Garden Grill reservations for early December at the 180 day mark, but some EP restaurants were not loaded into the system yet as they were still trying to figure out the Candlelight Processional dining program and seating times. I did ask the CM when the restaurants would be in the system and was able to get a date. I went back online on the date given and was able to get the reservation. If you haven't asked already, I would call Disney dining and ask them when they think the restaurants will be loaded into the system. Hopefully they can give you a date so you don't have to check every single day.
