    I am at the 180 day mark today and I have tried unsuccessfully to find ANYTHING for Minnie's Dine at H&V. Is it really that popular that everything would be booked already? Or is something going on?

    Really wanted the F! dinner package; nothing there.
    Tried booking it separately; nothing there.

    I was up at 6am ET booking so I'm finding it really hard to believe that there is nothing available. There's not even anything for a super early / super late time.......

    Does anyone know what is up?

    (Is it too much to hope for that they are bringing back the Star Wars meals for next June? and that's why nothing is available. LOL)

    I believe they aren't loading them. No, there won't be SW meals.

    Nope.

    Think of a dining reservation like inventory. So, say, it's a t-shirt. It has to be put on a shelf for you to buy it.

    Only, in this case, it's not even that they have a box in back and if you ask a staffer they can get one out for you. The box is somewhere in the Pacific Ocean and everyone is waiting.

    Until the hours and availability grid is loaded to the database, no one can book it. Not you online, in app, or a CM when you call. There is nothing in the database for them to work with.

    Here it is 2 weeks later and still no Fantasmic packages available to book. Anybody starting to wonder if something else is going on?

    When we went to WDW in June of 2015 a similar thing happened. We wanted to book the Pirate and Pals Fireworks voyage. I just checked the dates and it wasn't loaded into the system for booking for a full month after the 180 day window. I would just keep checking.

    We are looking for the first week of June, too. Our ADR date was 12/5, and nothing. The weird part is, I can get a Fantasmic ADR for Mama Melrose on the same day I'm looking for H&V. Why release some and not all? Still waiting......

    There seem to be no bookings available at all for H&V from May 15 onwards.

    Has anyone been able to get a lunch for June? I see breakfast times available but not lunch.

    Yeh, after doing more research I'm thinking only breakfast times got loaded. That was what I wanted and I had a notification from touring plans alert me, so I'd suggest using that service as it worked great!

    Thanks! I set up the alert. Hopefully lunch will load soon. We always go to lunch at H&V after Beauty and the Beast.

    How do I set up an alert in touring plans? I use that website all the time, but have never set up an alert for dining openings.
