Any information about unavailability for 180+10 day Dining Reservation for the four popular Epcot Restuarants from November 23, 2012 to present day?
I have always loved the Epcot Le Cellier Steakhouse dining experience. I have recently found that to save a little money, I was to dine for lunch at Le Cellier Steakhouse and still order the Filet Mignon with a slightly lower cost.
But I am very disappointed that with a paid resort reservation, I am unable to make an 180 plus 10 day advance dining reservation this year for dates December 4-12, 2012 for any times of the day whether lunch nor dinner times.
My understanding is this started for anyone making a dining reservation starting on November 23, 2012.
As of December 13, 2012, whether by phone or online, no reservations are available for the Epcot Le Cellier Steakhouse, The Garden Grill, Coral Reef, or Rose and Garden Pub and Dining Restaurants.
There has been no explanation for this, only rumor that regular 180 dining reservations for these four Epcot restaurants may be allowed when the Epcot Candlelight Packages go on sale. Last year, this was on July 26th.
Many Disney enthusiasts will make a dining reservations using Disney's 180 day advance dining reservation by phone or online.
Now it seems that all those Guests that called on for November 23, 2012, and everyday until present day have had to call or go online every day to check to see if they can capture their difficult to get, and favorite restaurant.
I have noticed that the phone wait has gotten longer every day. And online there has been no availability.
I guess that I will try some different sitdown restuarants this December and maybe switch over when the Le Cellier Steakhouse reservations are made available.
