    Try also not just putting in "breakfast" or "lunch" but specific times. I set finders for 7:00, 7:30, 8:00, and 8:30.
    I also had it send me a text so I got like 5 texts all at once. You can do up to 10.

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this feature! :love::love::love:

    Added a search for 'Ohana in late September a couple weeks ago and received a notice of availability yesterday.

    Just Amazing!

    No. Just click "Basic Access" at the account sign-up screen, & you'll get a free account.

    This is what I want to know. I can only get 2. I've had little to no success with it but still hopeful. It's a free service so no complaints.

    Oh yes same here. But if I could get 10 I'd take it! I know another website (don't think it's allowed to say)does 6 for free. I Wonder if that one does 10 with a paid subscription? I do have a paid subscription with TP and I still only get 2.

    Nope. You do have to register with the site, but it is a free service. Go get 'em!

    I'm not sure how folks are getting 10. I have a paid subscription (have had for 8 years now - love it - worth every penny) but I only get 2 at a time.

    Note that this is a human not a bot doing the searches. I think having that many as one person is a little much, but that's just my opinion.

    Oh definitely. That's good to know. I wasn't sure how it worked but people seem to have good luck with it.

    If you have a large party, will the reservation finder split the party for you if necessary (like CRT)?

    I don't think so. I think they search based on what you put in for parameters.

    No. You would have to split your party yourself. Let's say you have 9. Request a party of 4 and if they find that, then put in an additional request for a party of 5 for the same dining time or close to it. I believe you can only have one dining request in their system at a time.

    I just went into Touring plans and attempted to put more than two finder requests out there. I was able to put in two requests, but after attempting to save the third request I received a message I had reached my limit. Only allowed two requests at a time.

    I just saw all the questions about this and I have no idea.
    Maybe some random glitch. I did this back in 2016 for our trip that July.

    This year when we went again in May I could only do two.

    I've finally had some luck with this too. I was getting notifications in the middle of the night when I was sleeping, but I just make a new request the next day and keep trying and it works eventually! I have a paid subscription and I love it. I love that they have all those room views as well. We put in a room request with them, I hope it works out as well as the reservation finder.

    Love this feature on TP. We were able to get BOG and Ohana. The funny thing is that you can get a text at anytime of the day. I got my Ohana text at 2:00am. Thankfully I heard it and immediately booked using the Disneyworld mobile app.

    I am so happy I used this feature for our trip at the beginning of the month. I ended up getting a BOG reservation for a party of 7 at lunchtime four days before we arrived! I was very happy and think that alone was worth the $10.
