    Default No Epcot ADRs right now end of Nov./first week of December

    We reached our 180 day mark today... I was all set at 4:45 for the 5am start online (central time)... And I am sitting here with no dining reservations 4 hours later. I called at 6 when that became available and was told the basically all restaurants in Epcot that participate in the Candlelight Processional dining... You know basically all of them... Are all not taking reservations until CP dining booking starts.

    Has this happened before? I don't remember it. If so or if anybody can shed some light on when I should try again that would be amazing.

    Thanks!

    We hit 180 days today as well, and I ran into the same problem! I was a little confused at first as well. From what I see, the CP went on sale last year in early to mid July (looks like July 8th or 9th). I guess we need to wait until about that time.

    I understand how difficult this for you, but I can also see Disney's view point. I know a lot of people make an ADR at this time and then when CP opens get that reservation and then cancel the first ADR. Seems like Disney is finally sick and tried of that.
    Remember there are also some really good places to eat just out the back gate of Epcot.

    I am just irritated that most of the EPCOT restaurants are blocked, obviously for the Christmas Candlelight Processional dinner packages, for lunches and dinners. If you are on the dining plan, they will count as 2 entitlements. The prices last year were not cheap. So, you have to book a package to eat lunch or dinner at your favorite EPCOT restaurants, even if you don't want to attend the show. This is very frustrating.

    The Flying Fish is a very nice restaurant on the Boardwalk, just a boat ride away.
    There's also Beaches N Cream that has the famous Kitchen Sink.
    That Yachtsman Steakhouse is also delicious.

    We had the same problem today, and got the same explanation as well. Although, the very nice CM I spoke with said she thought they would open up in another week or two. So basically, who knows? I'll just keep trying every day from now on.

    This is a first... we've NEVER encountered this for ANY of our early/mid December WDW vacations.

    I was able to make our Biergarten and La Hacienda ADR's at 6am on 6/4/15. Looks like everything is back to normal.

    I guess this then leads to the question, When will Candlelight Processional Packages and the Candlelight Processional Schedule for that matter, be released?

    My booking was a few days before yours. I too was disappointed in the selection, even at 6am. I'm having the worst time with HS! I check 4-5 times daily and no change yet. But I'm hopeful.
