180 days and can't make dining reservations

Okay, My Disney Experience on the disney website says I'm at 180 days. Why am I not able to make any ADRs?

Are you trying to do 180+10? I've heard that people have had a hard time doing that online, and have had to call.

For online check-in it didn't actually become available to me until 59 days, even though they advertise 60.

Either way....I'd call.

I called, lLooks like the website's countdown is not accurate. They are only accepting reservations for those onsite through 8/29. We arrive on 8/31.

You've made an important discovery.

The Disney website is unreliable.
I don't expect that to change for a very long time.

I would not rely on it for anything IMPORTANT.

Heaven help us when FastPass+ comes on line.

(I am dead serious.)

I've had definite reservations (no pun intended) while using the new site. Yesterday I was trying to price out a trip for a friend at the same time ours is with a few modifications and it threw me into a never ending "check availability" loop when trying to look at packages. Even after logging off I couldn't get it to work.

Very very frustrating. So between the website saying I'm at 180 days. The CMs on the phone saying anyone with check in prior to 8/29 and my travel agent saying she can make reservations tomorrow I'm completely confused.

Why can't they make vacationing at WDW easy?

It was far simpler before they decided to "enhance the experience."

Hi-
I'm at 180 days today, arriving August 30th. So you should be at 180 tomorrow for an arrival on 8/31.

Hope you didn't get up too early to make them, only to be frustrated.

Good luck getting them.

The only reservation I'm concerned about is BoG at this point. The others we want I'm sure won't be an issue at such a slow time of the year.

Mine is off by one... according to the app & website. App tells me I should be able to make ADR on 3/11. I called to ask a CM a ? about something unrelated to ADR and she reminded me at the end of the call that I can make ADRs on 3/17. Um... no? That's like a week after my 180 mark. I asked her where was getting that date from and she said that's what the computer prompted her. I said no, according to the app and website it says March 11. She said, oh wait, I think it's March 12. Good heavens!!! I am going to try on March 11 but heads will roll if I can't get anything done on the 12! I am super aggravated and I'm not even trying to make them yet!

Seems insane that the website can't handle a simple calculation of subtracting 180!!
