Oh well! We'll keep trying I suppose!

I don't believe that BOG is full. I am pretty sure nobody has been able to book this restaurant since February 22 for any dates at the end of August. On February 20 I know people were able to book up until August 29 and then on February 21 it stopped.

If anyone has been able to book BOG after February 21 for the end of August let us know and then we can believe that it is booked but I bet you nobody has a reservation.

I personally have told my family that we will do Quick Service for lunch and have already made a reservation for another restaurant as this is driving me crazy. Tell me why I keep trying online at least three times a day for BOG

I'm going with frustrated myself.

I also tried booking Tutto Italia and was told I couldn't because that restaurant had not yet submitted their 180 + 10 schedule to Disney dining to allow for it. They only have Tutto's schedule up to 180 days.

I gave up and booked Chefs de France instead. Wanted to make sure I at least had something lined up for that one day.

I checked again at 7am (eastern) online today, there was availability for 70 restaurants but not BOG for September 5th. I also checked for any party size (1 to 14 people). There is no way all tables can go immediately 190 days out in a restaurant that big.

Interestingly the calendar on the website is also only showing dates up to August 20 for both Hoop Dee Do & Spirit of Aloha dinner shows, which is the latest date I have seen anyone confirm they had a BOG reservation for.

I'm trying to not be annoyed - we tried online dead on 6am, and then over the phone at 7am on the dot and were told there wasn't any availability. To now be told that there were plenty of available slots, it was just they couldn't be booked, and these are now gone is.... frustrating.

Blah!
Ooooh you just gave me a little Disney heart attack...so of course I called dining to find out the most current story. There are still no ADRs being booked for late August thru Sept. It is not booked up at all. The CMs are still being advised to encourage people to keep checking, so I will.

I hadn't seen this thread before I started mine, but WDW News Today is reporting there is an official freeze on BOG ADRs. No other details have been given.

So the good news is, the CMs are wrong -- the restaurant is not fully booked for the entire month of August. Bad news is no one knows when they will open for ADRs.

What frustrates me is that they don't even give a specific time that it's going to be open. So they just expect us to keep calling or checking everyday, every 5 mins????

The whole thing is stressing me out...I was really excited for my visit (Aug 25-31) but now it's like a dark cloud is overhead.......

Maybe they are so happy with how things went when they opened up on 8/20 for ADRs last year, they want to re-enact it. NOT. I'd be beyond furious.

Good luck to all hoping for ADRs!

I was just finally able to get a reservation for BOG online for 8/24; it's at 8:45pm but I'll take it. I was taking a late lunch at work and figured I'd check. (I've been checking several times a day since last Thurs)

Good luck all!

The one weird thing I noticed was that I could get much better times for a table of 2 or 4 than a table of 3; do they really have a different size table for parties of 3?

I am in the same position, I called yesterday when I was 180 days out and the cast member put me on hold and said she thought it might be a technical glitch but then came back and said it was fully booked but couldn't explain to me how when it only came available today, she was very apologetic but I find it very frustrating that clearly something is going on and we are the guests that suffer and won't be able to visit the restaurant during our stay
