I even called yesterday evening and the CM looked and told me everything was sold out for my date (08/04). Since I didn't believe this and thought that his system was the same I was trying to use, I searched again here and I found your post
I was able to book my F! package for my date by doing exactly what you said : enter the date manually!
Thanks again!

I have a quick question about the Fantasmic dinner package... I've seen the Fantasmic show at Disneyland and it was gorgeous, but is was pitch dark as well. When I went to book our reservation at WDW for June, the only times were for noon and 330pm to eat. What are the actual show times? It's going to be light out 'til 8pm in mid-June! (and thank you! I've been lurking here a while, soaking up the knowledge!)

Actually, the F! Package gets you tickets to bypass the line and gets you into a reserved section of the theater (although not the best ones, I do believe these are still pretty good and it still beats waiting on that horrendous line!). So even if you get the lunch package, the show will still be in the dark as you'll get your tickets at the end of your meal but will have to wait for the evening to use them at the show. On our date (08/04), we'll eat at Mama Melrose at 1:30pm but the show is at 9pm, so we'll come back around 8pm

Yes

I used these same tips this morning. Today is my 180 day mark, and logged in a 5:55, and by 6:20 had every ADR i wanted: BOG, CRT, 1900PF, CM, CP (8:05 on a 9 am opening!!), and Ohana.

I was really stressing about getting any of them, but everything went well!

Thanks so much Lisa! Followed your plan this morning and it worked great. Was able to get everything I wanted including BoG, Le Cellier, Artist Point and Ohana. The only thing that stinks is that I live in NM so I had to be up uber early to get this done. Totally worth it though. One tip I would add is that when you are searching for reservations, look for specific times, don't choose the "breakfast, lunch, dinner" option from the pull down menu. It may give you times you aren't interested in when in fact there are times available. This way I was able to get an earlier time for BoG than 6:20. Don't want to miss the parade! Thanks again for posting this. This method really works folks!

I am so in awe that so many of you can plan that far in advance. Wow.

With two in college and one in elementary, me working and ex husband never answering, I thought I was doing well this year to book the hotel out six months early, but as usual, it had to be changed three months forward, leaving me less than two months to make all the ADRs. Just like every other time, actually a little better, usually I only have three weeks or less.

I felt great, I in the last month got all my ADRs, leaving in 24 days, this weekend finished them up with all the times I want. I have CRT, ttfdp, ohana, chef Mickey, BBB, tusker and the princesses at Epcot, 1900, three for bog and all at the times we wanted for our two weeks there.

Just wanted to let others know it can be done if you are not this organized, I have to change dates and times, sometimes but really this is the first time I have had them all within 3 weeks of going. Last two times we went I only got the hotel a month early

Thank you so much for posting this! I followed your tips last night and I was ready to go first thing this morning. I only needed to make 1 reservation... BOG of course! I was a little worried since the day I wanted is 7 or 8 days into our trip but... I got it! We will be at BOG on the 19th of October to celebrate my 31st birthday!!!

Thank you so much for this post. I was able to get all of the reservations I wanted, including BoG, for our upcoming trip. I had two possible days that I was hoping to get a BoG reservation for and was only able to get the one that was towards the end of our trip. The earlier date was not available. This was for a party of 6 and my ideal time was not available but I was happy to get an ADR.

The new/US site is sooooo slow with so many extra steps that I would have gone crazy trying to get all my ADRs, so thanks again.

Thank you so much for these tips. My ADR day is Tuesday. I'm traveling for work so I was already stressed about trying to do this on hotel wifi and bleary eyed from a bad night of sleep in a hotel.

I had my spreadsheet with times, dates, and ordered by priority. I played around in the old site yesterday and noticed I was losing my reservation connection...but I was not following these handy steps.
I'll also try the trick for looking for 4 instead of 3 for BOG since that seems to be one with the problems.

Thanks again! Come on BOG ressie!

I tried a few practice runs since my ADR day is coming soon...when I click this link in the instructions it gives me an error message?? Sometimes it will work and sometimes not. And, when it does work, it gives me the msg when I click on make dining res?? Can someone offer any suggestions as to what I should do?

And, thanks to OP for this info...awesome!!
