    My 180th was a few days ago. Of course the web site wasn't working with the +10 so I had to call at 7. I called at 7, was taken immediately, and the CM could find NOTHING at BOG for the entire 10 days.

    I tried the next couple of mornings at 7 for the next day, but still nothing.

    So has anyone been able to grab one 180days out in the last few days, or are they just not offering any right now?

    My 180 day mark was this past Monday. I had to call too and I got a reservation at BOG for 9 people in August. I couldn't get it for the day I originally wanted, but the CM checked the whole week and found a 7:00 reservation that worked out. I'd keep trying. Good Luck:)

    Wednesday was my 180 mark. I was able to get an ADR for 9 people on 8/20 (180 days +1) at 8:20 pm. I booked it just to get it. I doubted people would want to eat that late but held it just in case. I was also able to book an ADR for 4 people on 8/24 (180 +5) at 6:00 pm as a back-up.

    Checked with everyone and no one wanted to eat that late so cancelled the 8/20 ADR. Still have the 8/24 ADR.

    Sorry, but currently BOG is reportedly "not in the system" for ressies. No one is sure just what is happening. My ADR day was Tues and although I couldn't get BOG for the 18 my arrival day, I was able to call back Wed night and get it for the 22nd. Thursday morning people started posting that they couldn't get BOG and they were being told "it's not in the system." Many are frustrated. Keep trying as PP suggested. But once those flood gates open be ready with your creditcard to hold the ressie.

    Hmmm . . . is it possible that Wednesday was the last day that were open? I started calling Thursday and there were none.

    I'm in the same boat as you. I called at 7 on my 180 a few days ago and was told that there was nothing available at all. We have DVC so I tried with member services too. I got a great CM on the phone who spent 20 minutes trying to find us anything. Not a single table to be had for the entire 10 days we are there.

    I know the restaurant is popular, but the last week in August is generally a slower time. I can't believe that the whole 180+10 time frame that I was looking for was booked in an hour before the phone lines went live. Especially since it seems like the 180+ isn't working for most people online.

    I have a feeling that there is something else going on here. I wonder if they are holding a bunch of tables because they are planning some sort of Magic Band thing.:headache:

    Thursday was my day, and there was nothing even 10 days out right at 7am. Could it be that Wednesday they were still making them but Thursday they shut them down (or didn't load them)? I guess it's equally possible that I just didn't have good luck.

    I'm calling for one too - my day was Thurs and I need 8/27 for DGrDs birthay dinner. Just got off the phone and am still being told they are not yet in the system. If anyone gets one today please come and post so we all know - I will!

    Oh yeah, the magic band system where everything you do goes through this system - yikes!!! I can't even make a dinner reservation!! :headache:LOL

    :sad2: My180 days was today, but I knew what to expect from checking a few days before. Earlier this week, there were a few ADRs popping up (of course prior to our stay). Starting Thursday, nada..nothing...zippo. Had the CM check if there was anything booked the last week or so of August. She said it did not look filled to her, nor were there any ADRs book for a few days. Too bad there's not a WDW rep or travel agent hanging out on our boards that could enlighten us. I can't help but wonder if it has to do with the Sept hours being in question...but its only this one restaurant... There's no way they'd just neglect to put the ADRs in the system, right? That's just bad business. That's almost like having a new website not work after several months of existence..oh wait...:rolleyes1

    I've been so frustrated because we are leaving in one week and I've been able to coordinate with THREE people on their cancellations at BOG in the past couple of days and even though I was right there when they cancelled (one person at midnight EST) it didn't show up in the system. At first I thought it was that rumor that Disney wasn't releasing cancellations but now I'm thinking it may have to do with this "shut down" of BOG in the system... This is too much! :headache:

    I was able to get a reservation for August 23. I am sure there's plenty of availability, but for some reason it's not in the system. Once they figure out what is going on I'm sure there will be plenty of tables available. If they were holding all tables at the end of August for a special event I don't think I would've been able to get the day I got. My 180 day was August 18.

    I'm noticing some flakiness with BOG as well when trying to find available times online.

    On topic, does BOG book reservations for lunch or is it just dinner?

    I've had several CMs tell me that sometimes they just have to wait for the restuarants themselves to put their available hours into the system. Seems a bit odd, but whatever. I just had a CM insist that even though BOG won't come up for any of the ten days in my ADR window that it is not because it isn't in the system, but because it books out for the full ten days as soon as the window opens - mayb he is just tired of taking a bazillion phone calls for BOG ADRS. I always take everything CMs tell me with a grain a salt - they mean well - and they try for me - that's all that counts.:goodvibes Sure does make me nervous about the new magic band system, though!:scared:

    My 180 was yesterday ( Fri.) for Aug. 21 and the CM searched the whole week and she said it was showing nothing..... She also mentioned alot of people are making multiple BOG ressies trying to eat in each of the dining rooms. I just don't know. With how screwy the website is , it could be anything. Like many other posters I was able to scheduled the first day ( got Chef Mickey's but no BOG ) but had to call to get the rest. On the upside I guess, she said now it's VERY easy to get Cinderella, Ohana, Le Cellier etc.

    We tried booking this morning at 6AM, our 180+10. Checked all 10 days and got nothing. We just called now and checked again and the cast member my husband spoke to said they are all booked. Very frustrating.

    I thought I read somewhere that more spaces will open on the 180 mark. Anyone know if that's true? Maybe we'll have some luck calling 180 days out instead of booking in the 180 + 10 day window??

    Isin't there a free dining pin floating around for the end of August? Maybe that's what has the reservations up? That is if it is true that BOG really is booked!
