Okay, maybe my theory is wrong, but we are two weeks out from our vacation and I seriously believe Disney “releases” more available reservations as the dates get closer.
Last night at 11pm I searched for Cinderella’s Royal Table, but absolutely no luck on the day we needed it. This morning? If I searched for “dinner”, one reservation came up, 8:10pm. I went ahead and made the reservation but we really needed 9pm and nothing at all showed available. So, I sat there for a few minutes more and instead of searching for “dinner”, I then searched for “9pm”. Immediately, 8:15pm and 9:00pm showed up. If it were any other restaurant, I could see multiple being available. But in 12 hours to go from zero available to 3 in a few minute period? Very odd.
I may be onto you Disney!
