WDW News Today is reporting a BOG ADR freeze

Here's what WDW News Today just tweeted:

Quote:
There is currently a freeze on dining reservations past a certain date for Be Our Guest Restaurant. No details have been provided.

You wish they would at least say frozen past what date. And give some sort of hint of when it might be lifted. If I have no hope of getting a BOG reservation for the end of August, I would like to know that now, so I don't waste any more time calling in.

I bet it's because they're still arranging the MNSSHP and MVMCP schedules, and trying to decide if the restaurant will remain open for the parties.

I just spoke with a CM at Dining Reservations and was told that they were accepting reservations as normal... but they were now fully booked?

She said there was an issue, but this was fixed a "couple of days ago". She said that any dates which were previously unable to be booked due to the error were now fully booked...

We've been calling/checking online since Sunday as our stay is from the 23rd of August until the 3rd of September and there's "no availability" for any of our +10 days, regardless of whether I check online at 6am or on the phone at 7am!

People had been reporting the restaurant being fully booked for the entire 180+10 for a couple of days now. That hardly seems likely, even with the increased interest in the restaurant.

Phone CMs likely wouldn't have been told if ADRs were frozen, it would just likely show as "unavailable" or booked for those dates.

I just called in about 5 minutes ago and was told that the dates haven't been released yet. I really wish we could get one answer to this!

I'm going to go out on a limb here and suggest that because of the current popularity of BOG that they're considering it or even testing it as a FastPass+ attraction and that's why it's unavailable for ADRs. I booked my ADRs on Monday and had the same issue of unavailability. Anyway, just putting 2 and 2 together and speculating on the result.

So how many of you would swap a ride on Space Mountain for dinner at BOG?

This is getting nutty. Booking ADR's at 180+10 is supposed to be a perk of staying onsite. Now that it appears to be as popular as many thought it might be, they want to wring a little blood out of all of us turnips.

This just makes me more determined than ever to head west on our trip this year.

Thanks for the tip, it must have just opened because I called this morning and no. Called 2 seconds ago and got it. Thanks again.
