Default Tiffins - Festival of the Lion King

Has anyone done this experience? I tried to book it @ my 180 day mark, but no luck. I called in, and the Dining Rez line couldn't help me. They suspected it "just wasn't available to book yet".
I'm trying again @ MDE, but it's telling me there isn't availability.

Is there something I'm missing?

In 2017 we booked Tiffin's, which is a great place to eat, for The River's of Light. But we were not able to make a reservation until around the 100 day mark. So be patient and keep looking on Disney's Web Site.

Awesome, thanks for the response! We're still around 150 days, so that's great to know.

Did you have any problems with availability at the 100 day mark?

I was surprised that Tiffins Rivers of Light seating was not available for our late January trip. I've booked that package 2-3 days out in the past, so it can't be full. Just keep trying. They should release something for the packages soon.

I'm not sure how FotLK works, but RoL pkg at Tiffins is a great deal - the package price is the price of their surf and turf entree, so your appetizer, dessert, and non-alcoholic beverage are free. It was truly an awesome meal!! Best mussels I ever had for the appetizer.

I see it, but can't book. I select it, then pick the date & time, and hit "Find". No matter what dates & times I select, it comes back "nothing available".

Are you seeing results?
