    Same for me, it was like something just told me to check on that night. I'll be there 11/27-11/29 and was able to get the reservations I wanted so I'm pretty jazzed. Still trying to get Trader Sams though.

    I also have 11/30 for the parks , unable to find any reservations. 10/6: I was up later than usual with other activities. Checked restaurant availability….so many were available! Blue Bayou, and it’s cafe, Carnation Cafe , Cathay Circle and it’s cafe. Didn’t know what Lamp Lounge was. So didn’t reserve there. Must try it later. Picked Carnation cafe lunch and Cathay Circle dinner. (as beginning of alphabet) One poster noted to check between 10pm-MN, and might find reservations opened up.

So this morning I logged into the website instead and was able to book a Carnation breakfast, and a Carthay and Lamplight lunch! Very excited!!
    Good for YOU !

    While you can select a date 60 days from now in the app or website, it is up to the restaurants to set the availability of tables. And with schedules of the parks and restaurants not determined that far in advance, along with capacity of the restaurant because of staffing, the restaurants are not setting reservation availability that far out. Also the restaurants seem to add availability in batches. DCA restaurants seem to be the worst and often you can only book 30-35 days in the future. You basically just have to check daily, grabbing what you can when you see something that would be acceptable and cancel if your first choice suddenly becomes available.

    We've been to the parks 5 times since they reopened. 3 on the SoCal tickets. 2 on our Dream Key. We've been to Carthay 4 of those 5 times. The first 3 reservations while holding the SoCal tix were ez to make, mid-day, on the 60th day. Nothing available on the 4th day (key). Nothing for the 5th day (key). Used an outside service. They came up with MULTIPLE available reservations, which we snagged. Used an outside service for Nov. 22nd. Nothing available on the DLR site, but they found multiple reservations.
    My conspiracy antennae are vibrating!
    This right here is exactly what I’m concerned about. The reservations I found were for Carthay, and every time I selected it I got the below message. Keep in mind that I was attempting early in the week - Monday or Tuesday. This never happened when we bought regular tickets - ever. I’m going to be really upset if it turns out that’s the case. We thought that Disney valued the AP program (and Magic Key) because it would be used on food and merch.

    Is anyone here willing to help me track how hard or easy it is for those with a Magic Key to get a reservation by responding to this thread as they attempt to?

    I tried making reservations for Thanksgiving and the day after and there is nothing from 11/24 onward. And I agree that it is completely blank, no downtown Disney options and no minor restaurants in the park. It just says that there are no reservations available for lunch/dinner on the date/time/party size and to try a different time or date.

    Restaurant Reservations Down in App?

    Has anyone successfully made sit down reservations lately (through the app without a third party notifier)? I was poking around at 7am this morning to see what I could book for upcoming trip, and locations would show up fine. The issue was securing the spot. I would go through the process and when I would try to confirm the reservation it would say there was an error and to try again. When I refreshed they would no longer be available. I tried this for multiple days across two months and even restarted the app. Has anyone else been experiencing this? Do we know what’s causing it?
