    I know that when calling, reservations open at 7am; but if you're booking online how early in the morning can you make an ADR (for the 180 day window)?

    For instance, for our trip in Sept/Oct, we can start making dining reservations on April 2. If I were calling, it would be April 2 @ 7:00am. If I'm making the reservation online, is it a different time?

    I would assume you could start making the reservations online as soon as it became 12:00 am (eastern standard time) in Florida on April 2nd.

    That's the assumption I had as well, but I've not been able to confirm it. I guess I'll be setting an alarm!

    Maybe I'll do a test run...At midnight, I'll try and book a reservation for whatever day 180 days out from tomorrow would be.

    LOL, C'mon up, Dan! Yes, we're already making plans for our annual Food & Wine Festival Trip :) This is the one we've rented DVC points for at The Boardwalk.

    Becca I was able to make reservations online at 8am here which would have been 3am over there, so I would think DF is right and they become available at 12am :)

    A quick update...

    I decided to do a trial run this morning...just to see how early I could book. Tried at 12:00am, 3:00am, and now 5:00am - each time receiving an error message. In researching, I DID read several places that online reservations open at 6:00am, so I'll try then and see what happens.

    Unfortunately no, we don't arrive until 10/12. Any chance we'll see you at Lobster Fest on 17 May?

    Wouldn't miss it :) Thanks for the reminder though, we were on the cruise when your original message came, and it sort of slipped off my radar!

    At 6:03 (my computer was loading slowly this morning) I tried again, got right in - only to learn that there was no availability by 6:05 for 9/28. Does it REALLY sell out that fast? Perhaps, if I don't have any luck on the computer tomorrow at 6am, I'll call directly at 7am.

    :thud: Shut out. Three days in mind, and shut out of all three. And that was with the 180+10 rule for onsite guests.

    Online at 3am and 5am - each time with a message saying they could not complete the request at that time to check back later. Kept trying from 530am until spot on 6 when I finally got a response at 6am saying there were no tables available (when they'd JUST opened them? REALLY?). Called at 7am on the dot - all three dates were booked solid. Even the CM was shocked. She said they "may not have all the dates loaded just yet" and that I should "try calling back throughout the day."

    MEH.
