Don't give up on BOG!

I just got a 4:10pm ADR for 5/11! So don't give up, keep checking!

Thank you! That's encouraging. Did you call or make the ADR on-line?

Yes, don't give up...I'm trying to finalize a few thing for our trip in a few weeks...and have at least one or two 6:30 BOG ADRs to release... I'm sure others will do the same.

Good for you! I've had this happen so many times with CRT, CM's & BBB. Now, here I am at 176 days until when I needed a reservation at BOG and it's full. So, I'll be stalking the system until I get one! Persistence always pays off.

Sweet. I booked a fairly last minute trip last month for May. I was able to coordinate with a Dis'r who was cancelling their BOG ADR. Their old time popped up on the computer and I snagged it. Ate there is Dec and had a lovely meal. So excited to take my friend there for the first time!

That and just the hoards of people who want it in general. (I've also been stalking to no avail).

I got into BOG with my boyfriend yesterday on my birthday without a reservation. It was just the two of us so we have no problem with eating at obscure meal times (like a 4pm "dinner"). I had no reservations and tried so hard to get them but had zero luck. We got there around 3:15 and just hung out around outside in the blazing heat until they opened for dinner. Don't let the staff make you feel there is little hope. First they don't consider the walk-in line just that. To them it is a "cancellation" line and if you do get in, it is because someone cancelled. So it's more of a privilege than a courtesy. I highly doubt that i got in due to cancellations because there were tons of extra tables during the first hour of service. In beasts room alone, it was about 80% empty! They all have to say the same things: "we are booked for months through", "we won't know until we open at 4 if there are any cancellations" etc. but just ignore them and wait in the line outside on the left.

I got on around 3:40 and was first in line and they took my name, party number and gave me a pager when they opened. It was super easy and I was seated at around 4:15! I'm so glad I read about a similar experience on here and didnt completely rule out a chance to eat here because it was a wonderful dining experience..we even got to meet Beast in a room where there was only a tiny line of people because everyone was still eating!
