    It looks like these cannot be booked online past the end of March right now. :confused3

    Is this a glitch? Is it different if you call in, or are the booking windows different for these?

    Thx! :goodvibes

    Right now they are only booking until the end of December even though the calendar shows later months.

    Oh. :( Do the Fantasmic Dining packages and Dessert Parties always book only 3 months out these days? I'm confused... I'm pretty sure I booked both at the 180 day mark for our trip last May... :confused:

    Just found this info... I could swear this is a change from last year...

    "You can book the Fantasmic Dining Package by calling 1-407-WDW-DINE up to 90 days in advance." (http://www.wdwinfo.com/wdwinfo/dining/fantasmic.htm)

    Still haven't seen anything about the dessert party only booking through Dec on the sites I checked. And DIS's search feature isn't returning ANYTHING newer for me than threads in Jan 11. :confused3 :headache:

    Actually a couple of days ago I booked our F! package at the 180 day mark. It did not show up online but when I called there was no problem booking it :thumbsup2

    The dessert party is a completely different beast - you have to wait until a month or two before the date you want to book.

    Sorry about that, I missed the Fantasmic part. I believe you can book this 180 days in advance.

    Check the following thread under Disney Dining Reservations: Wishes Dessert Party ADR Watch Thread - See Post 1 for Past Release Dates/Price Info

    Sorry, I don't know how to put a link to another thread but you should be able to search on it.

    Thanks everyone for your responses!! :)

    Seems like there's a fair amount of conflicting info out there. Such a strain on 180-day-mark-planners such as myself... ... :rolleyes1

    Is it just me, or was the dessert party booking not at all crazy last year?? I can't remember having any issue or having the dates for booking being any different than any other ADR. Do I just have amnesia?!?! :confused:

    The 180 day mark for our April trip was the past Monday. As the OP noted, the Fantasmic package isn't loaded into the online system for April yet. I made all of our other ressies online and called for the F! dinner package. I had no problem booking it for April 17th at Mama Melrose.
