Thank you so much for taking the time to put all these wonderful tips on here for everyone to use. I woke up this morning at 3:50am Colorado time with credit card in hand made not one but 2 Be Our Guest adrs for dinner. We are going to be staying at BCV for 13 days so I did one adr early in week one and one adr at about 10 day mark of second week. I was so happy I couldn't get back to sleep. This afternoon when I got home from work at 2:30 Colorado time - so 4:30pm florida, I just had to check and wouldn't you know it both dates with almost exact times were still coming up to book. I know that I didn't want to risk it but wanted to let everyone know that it is possible to get in !!!

Again, thank you so much for the tips- I followed everything exactally and it was perfect !

I am so upset!! LOL I had to book through Jetblue Getaways (long sad story) and the reservation number I have for the resort isnt valid for dining reservation purposes...its only 6 digits long...


Arg....going to try without a resort reservation....maybe I will get lucky!

Thank you for this- I would still be waiting on the "new" site for it to update- but instead I was able to get what I wanted!

Thanks! This really works! I got everything including BOG!

This system works perfectly! (Although being in Canada there's no new/old site issues to worry about.)
This morning was 180+10 and I got all my ADRs, including BOG and Ohana at pretty much the exact times I wanted. And I was even able to go back to sleep for another couple of hours afterwards... :grin:

My adr experience was successful, but definitely not smooth sailing! I used the UK site right at 6 am, associated my dining plan and booked my first adr no problem (CRT 8:05 on day 6 of our stay). After that, it all went downhill! I'd find my desired restaurant, plug in my info and when I'd try to book it I'd get an error message. This happened several times. I'd start over and notice that my dining plan kept "disassociating" itself from my search? I logged into My Disney app on my phone and low and behold two of the adrs that had come back with error messages actually went through!! I was making little headway by the time 7 am rolled around so I called, got a cm right away and was able to book everything I wanted.
Via Napoli 7pm
Crystal palace 6:30 pm
Kona 8:20 am
Boma 6 pm
Kouzzina 6:30 pm
Mama Melrose fantasmic 12 pm
Chef Mickey 7 pm
San Angel Inn 7 pm
CRT 8:05 am
The bottom line is, if you get errors upon booking with the UK site, check your app...it may have gone through! Great luck to all!

I am trying the UK site as everyone suggests but still getting the new system once I click on make dining reservations. How is everyone getting the old site through that link?

Okay, I admit it. I was a know-it-all. I thought I knew all the tricks. Besides, when I had to book our 180+10 in October for the now-cancelled April trip, I went online at 6am and got all of our ADRs with no problem at all....so I should've had no problem today with ADRs for our October trip, right?

WRONG!!!!

I glanced at this thread, and saw this post, but didn't take the time to read it. BIG mistake! I had all my windows open. I linked everything to our ressie. I was ready to go with my ADRs in the order that I needed to book them, Be Our Guest 1st, CRT 2nd, etc...

...and then the "new" dining site wouldn't book past 180 days. It would pop up 180+10 on the main calendar, but whenever I tried to make an ADR, I got an error message.

I not-so-patiently kept trying the site to no avail. At 7am on the nose I connected to Disney Dining by phone and did all the tricks to skip the prompts but still was placed on hold.

In the meantime, I came back here and started reading this post. ((smacks self on forehead)) As soon as I opened the "old" site I was able to make ADRs, but unfortunately, BoG showed no availability for our chosen night, one of only two nights we'd be at MK. Grrrrr....Probably because it was our first full day and therefore only 181 days out so others have been able to book it for 9 days or so. I was able to score a not-so-great 4:55pm on our last night in the parks, but that meant lots of shuffling of other plans and missing out on a family favorite. *sigh* The good news is, although a lot of our ADRs had to be reorgnaized or even lost because of the BoG switch, I did manage to get all of the rest within 15 or 20 minutes of my desired time, including CRT.

So you may have noticed how I said earlier that I started to read this post? Well I missed the tip about if you have an odd number in your party and there's no availability, that you should try for an even number - 4 instead of 3. ((smacks self in forehead again)) I read that part at around 4pm and raced back to the site, but by then there was nothing for a party of 4...or 6 for that matter!

So the lesson, boys and girls, is never let yourself think you know it all. Sometimes you can teach an old dog new tricks! And always, ALWAYS say thank you to the people who helped teach you those tricks.

So thank you. Even if though we missed BoG, we'd probably have missed out on a lot more if it weren't for you all!

Now off to try to figure out how to restructure things around MNSSHP!

Thank you for posting these instructions!

I can make our ADRs on 4/22 and was concerned since I don't know much about the new Disney website and how the 180+10 would work. So glad to know I can use the old website!
