    Are any of you having a problem getting reservations for this place even 6 months out? I decided to try at the last day to get them (now 10/28) to get anything, but no tables were available. I have tried this 4 or 5 times now just to see if it is possible. Our vacation is coming up in late fall. Are there any meals that do not require a reservation there?

    If you eat an early lunch (11 am or so) you may be able to walk right in. My family did when we went during Spring Break.

    Having eaten both dinner & lunch there we prefer lunch. You might be able to do lunch without a ADR if you show up early, as mentioned by Speedy1998.

    Good Luck!

    It really does fill up fast!

    Disney hasn't released breakfast dates for fall yet, so you might be able to book a breakfast ADR if you're interested.

    Otherwise, just keep trying! On our last trip, I couldn't get an ADR, but I just kept checking. People change their plans all the time, and you might be able to nab one.

    Otherwise, it never hurts to check, especially at the start of meal times, but they may only be serving those with ADRs.

    We would actually prefer lunch, but will take anything. I will keep trying, but if all else fails, show up early for lunch.
    Thanks

    Do keep trying. I made a lunch reservation for BOG just last week (for our October trip)...then cancelled it yesterday after deciding that we will do more eating in EPCOT during the Food & Wine Festival. So spots do open up as people shift their plans around. That may be even truer around the 60 day mark as people start to make their FastPass+ reservations and encounter conflicts with dining reservations.

    Keep trying especially for lunch. We were within the 180 day mark when they first started ADR for lunch. I tried for every day we were there and couldnt get anything. I couldnt believe that many people even knew about it. Sure enough tried everyday and one day there was all this availability. I dont know why but it seems like they waited to within 90 days to open up lunch.

    20 days and counting!!!!!

    I was there in front of my computer at 5 am my time for 7 days straight a couple of weeks ago setting up all our reservations for October. The one reservation I had trouble with was Be Our Guest. I tried for several days for either lunch or dinner, and was told it was filled up, usually within 7 seconds of that day's reservations opening.

    I was getting pretty disappointed but karma stepped in and I got a lunch reservation on the very last day. Great Hunter status restored!
