Official Be Our Guest August ADR thread...ADRs are available!!!

Since there seems to be a growing number of majorly frustrated DIS'ers trying to grab a BOG August (or anytime) ADR with no luck, I figured it would be helpful to have a dedicated thread for people to check periodically. If anyone has success getting a new BOG ADR, please post here. Any ADR that was obtained after Thurs of last week would be helpful to hear about. That way, we'll all know 1) the restaurant is probably not filled up for August, and 2) when to retry again...and again..and again for our dates. Good Luck, everyone!

thanks

I too was trying to get an ADR for August and hoped to find some info here on when they'd release the dates. I'll keep trying too and update when/if I get an August ADR. I was told by a CM on the line that they were not taking ADR for August yet.

I don't know if this could have anything to do with the reason why we can't get reservations but I just noticed something new when trying to look for times to book Be our Guest online. If you search on the BoG page for dining times you can only select dinner from the dropdown you can no longer select a time like say 4:30pm. On top of that it only searches for times between 5pm and 10pm. This is only a speculation but maybe they are planning on getting rid of earlier dining times because they think that during the busier seasons it will be too hard to clear the restaurant after lunch and have it ready for dinner at 4:00pm.

I was trying today too since I am at 180 days. I find it ironic that I had no problems getting breakfast at CRT but Sanaa times for dinner were few.

Subscribing! We have our 180 day mark coming up Friday or Saturday (depends on which website version we believe ;-) ) and we urgently want to have a BOG ADR - I would even say it's the most important ADR of them all... So any succesful information would be helpful!
I talked to a CM today and was informed that August was completely full and they don't take ressies anymore but for September if I would try it in the early morning of my 180 day mark I should be succesful - actually I don't trust these words...

I had trouble getting Saana too, and I was booking it for the 9th day past my 180. I did get a BOG ADR (before 2/21). Now I'm paranoid that when they open the system back up mine will disappear!

Thank you for starting this support group thread

I was so disappointed when I called to make my ADRs 180 days out at 7 am and couldn't get BOG. My daughter's only dinner request. We'll keep trying though.

BOG -- Still not working as of 7:50 pm

Having been trying everyday since Feb 22. No success. I am absolutely certain though that BOG is not full because at 6am on Feb 22 I tried booking for August 31 (which is 190 days out) and it told me there was no availability which is impossible as I would have been one of the first people trying to book that restaurant for that date.

I have already booked something else in its place and my family has agreed that we will just do lunch at BOG so why do I keep trying? (at least three times a day???)

Yep, I also tried to get BoG at 6AM 190 days out. It's impossible that the entire restaurant was booked at that time. So frustrating! Thanks for the official thread.

My theory is that reservations will open up the morning of March 1st after the FP+ test is over on Feb 28th. Only time will tell! But I'll be up early to check!

I'm wondering if they are holding back the BOG reservations while they are testing the FP+ for BOG. Could they possibly consider adding FP+ for dinner reservations there?

Yesterday the website was letting me check by the hour, but this morning I can only select dinner in the drop down. Still no availability today.
