Thumbs down Go Ahead... Just Shoot Me

Latest innovation in Disney World Dining....
When you go to check online for ADR availability at a selected restaurant, as soon as you choose the date, it immediately says "No time...". This is all of "No times available" that fits in the space where you could have chosen a time, had there been any available.

I suppose some will see this as a step forward, but to me it's just an attempt to crush all hope by instantaneously spitting in your face. I want to shout "You *******! You didn't even check, did you?!"
It could at least pretend to look!

So unless you are looking at V&Aís, or looking for a party of 17, Iím not sure why you are having trouble either. Rude search engine! Donít forget to use the TP reservation finder. Itís been a lifesaver for me! Best of luck!

For me as well, but it can only do so much.
And when you get a text, you check it and think: "Damn! It's just my spouse (or best friend, or whomever), not touring plans".

We have a trip in about 4 months with little by way of food planned too.

Try changing the number of people in your party. We have had luck with that. If it says no to three people, try two or four. Once you get the reservation, you can change the party number.

Good advice in general, but as I'm only going for 2, don't think it will help.
