Yay!! I got Be Our Guest ressies!

My family will be in Orlando for a conference during spring break. We didn't think there would be any chance to get a reservation during such a busy time. But we got it. Now it's @ 8:40 pm. But that's ok. My kids are all older so it shouldn't be a problem.

I have had 4pm ressies since opening booking day for this December. I keep trying to change to another date / time, but so far - nothing. I don't think I've seen a restaurant book up like this before - even Le Cellier. Hope its worth it.

I had no trouble booking for a Saturday night during my spring break! I was very surprised.

Congrats!

Still trying

Been trying to make reservations for only 2 of us any night 2/12 - 2/15. This is the week *before* Pres week, a pretty slow week, but nothing

Please!!... If anyone is holding multiple reservations because you are having a hard time making up your mind. Please, be so kind as to release them downsizing to holding just one.

Here's the link to the February cancellation thread; maybe someone will cancel a reservation that you can then try to get:

Been trying 4-5 times a day for the last month with no luck. Still hopeful, though!

We looked for available ADRs at BOG before planning our trip! So basically, we planned the entire trip based on when we could get an ADR!!

Kathy, much the way I do it. So, like me, do you love planning the trip almost as much as taking it?

This is partially the reason we pushed back our trip to September or October. I got a new job (but was willing to work around that), but I will not work around not being able to get ressies for BOG. I actually started trying a few weeks after the 180 days out. They were already all booked. I didn't think it would be that bad since it's not that busy in February.

Talking I was able to book mine for May....

Most of the days I checked I had no problem ,but the week after memorial day a few days had no availability!! Glad I grabbed the ones that I wanted

I am sure there will be people that cxl some as summer approaches...

I got us a 6:15pm dinner for two the Thursday before Memorial day weekend.

Hoping for a light winter so I don't have too move my dates...I am allowing for 6 snow days!!! So I made a second ADR for BOG for the next week in case I need it...I do plan to cancel one of them after February...We will know by then for sure.
