    I am so frustrated! I can't seem to get a straight answer from Disney about Dessert Party. I am really hoping to get reservations during the last night of our stay as a Mother's Day present for my sister in law and myself. The Disney Mom's panel said ressies could be make 180 days out, I called they said no 90 days. So today's 90 days and I tried to book online, big shock the system is down. Called the WDW ressie number three times this morning only to be told that there are only slots available for booking in Febraury. I ask the CSM if there was any way to know when slots would be opened for May - she had no idea. I was put on hold several times and after an hour longs distane phone call I am no further ahead getting a reservation booked than I was yesterday. I know it's not the CSM's fault, and I'm not blaming her it's just frustrtaing to not know when I can book. I would feel bad if I missed it because I didn't know that ressies had opened and I missed them. Vent over....thanks for listening.

    Reservations for the dessert party open about 2 months before. Go to the reservation board and there is a dessert party reservation thread, you can find the best info there. (Sorry I can't link to it from the app)

    I am not an expert, but I believe that for the past few months, reservations have been opening about a month prior. Right now, they are only taking reservations through February. It is expected (hoped) that the March reservations will open in early February, maybe even tomorrow. So I'd start really looking and paying attention mid to late March with the hope of an April 1st booking day for the May dates. After I re-read this, it sounds clear as mud. Let me know if you still have questions. There is also a bigger thread on the Disney Dining Reservations sub-forum if that helps too.

    There is a thread here somewhere that you can subscribe to so that you will know when May opens up. The window has gotten smaller and smaller each month. I think Jan and Feb didn't get released until close to almost 30 days. You haven't missed anything for May.

    March is not even open yet! I too am stalking the thread to see when May/June open up! Here is the link to the thread. As each month opens up, they will change the title. Just subscribe, and stalk! :) http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=3003279

    They were wrong, it's not 180 days for the dessert party. It's more like 30 to 60 when the reservations open and it's not consistent. The Mom's Panel is wrong a lot.

    See the thread quoted above, they really keep track of when reservations open. Of course you do have to keep checking back because Disney won't announce before they open.
