    One thing I noticed today. :peekaboo:

    I did manage to tie our reservation number to the ADR's. So, when I was trying to find the time slots for our dining plans, the popup calendar they give you to choose a date with had the dates from the 90 day mark out through our entire stay (7 days) enabled. Beyond the 7 days of our stay, the dates were disabled on the calendar.

    Tom :)macwave:... keep playing with it, we'll get it figured out!)

    Hmmmm...I can't get the site to work. I'm sure it's because I don't know how to use it, but then there are no really good directions (and heaven knows I need clear directions for things like this). When I make any sort of selection the entire site "grays out" and nothing happens.

    I'm wondering if it's something to do with the site and my computer? :unsure:

    Good for you!

    I'm sorry. (I've got one of those too for my work.)

    Now, after you entered your desired date, time and number of people in your party, did you get the little popup type window that says "Please wait while we process your request" and has the little spinning thing around a mouse head icon?

    Tom :)macwave:... working on it.)

    I thought the on-line system was supposed to be available 24/7

    I can't get that far Tom. Any "click" results in the graying out and inability to proceed. So when I choose the resort, or the restaurant, it goes no further. As I said, I'm sure it's my lack of understanding how the system works.

    Tink,

    Have you tried it with Internet Explorer? You might want to give that a shot. Although I think Firefox is a better browser.

    Tom :)macwave:... sigh)

    Well, I was concerned about getting what we wanted. So, when I was talking to the main reservations number the other day (I was making a payment), the CM I was talking with was giving me hints on what to try to get first (Le Cellier, Coral Reef, etc) and when to get them. She mentioned that the online system would let me make ADR's at 6 AM on the 90 day mark rather than the call in system which didn't even open till 7 AM.

    So, in the interests of "being there first", I was on my computer at 5:30 AM, 90 days before the start of our vacation. Sure enough, when I tried to make an ADR at that time, the little calendar popup they give you only went out as far as the day BEFORE our arrival. Waited till 6 AM and tried again and bingo... now the calendar popup shows my whole trip dates as being available. So evidently, the CM told me right. Our trip dates became available at 6 AM on the 90 day before mark.

    Tom :)macwave:... precision dates... what a concept)

    Still glitches in the system. You can make your bookings 24/7. Right now though, if it after midnight on the 90 day mark you are going to have to wait a few hours. Now if your 90 day mark was a day or so ago and you want to go on at 2am tonight and make ADR's you should be ok.
