    I'm curious to know if anyone was able to book Akershus anytime from December 10-16? I'm just wondering if there is no availability because it is all booked or because of the CP.
    I've seen where some people have ressies after my dates for it, so I am just curious what your experience has been? I wonder if maybe they have some dates figured out for CP but not all??
    I already have TP reservation finder set as well as *********** for alerts. Plus, I'll keep checking myself. This is the one reservation my princess obsessed 3 year old would love!

    Thanks!

    I was able to book it for lunch on December 11th, but not for my preferred time. Booked it back on June 9th a few minutes after my 180 day window opened. That's day 180 +5 for us. They are obviously releasing some reservations, but I do think they are holding quite a few back for CP packages.

    Hmmm, it's crazy they booked out so fast! Thanks for your replies. I'll just have to keep checking to see if one opens. There was literally nothing for my whole trip when I checked. And I was up before 5am (I'm central time). :confused3

    We will be there the same time you will. Not a single one available. We also have a 3 year old who would love it so I'm just really keeping my eyes open and obsessively checking for openings :rolleyes1

    Are you staying on or off Disney property? We are off property at Westgate which gives us a disadvantage. Apparently there is a free dining promotion going for resort stayers also?

    We are on property. And yes, the week we are going is part of free dining.
    I've been before in December during free dining around the same time and never had this much trouble. So, I'm sure free dining has something to do with it but I didn't think it made it this bad. I'm really not sure what the deal is. Maybe it's going to be a very busy week! I hope not.

    I'm arriving November 25th during free dining and started attempting to book it at 6AM on Memorial Day which was 182 days out. I have yet to find lunch or dinner despite checking the MDE App several times a day and having three reservation finders active on Touringplans without receiving a single notification. I called at 7AM on Memorial Day on another issue and ask about this too. The CM told me if I check back in about a week tables should open up (presumably due to CP), but have yet to find anything. They've had a couple days since when reservations were completely down so I'm hoping systems trouble created the delay. I thought BOG, Cinderella's Royal Table, and 'Ohana would be tough, but I immediately got three, two, and two of those respectively. Ironically, the MDE app says there are three reservations available for tomorrow (a heavier week) as I write this. Next day reservations have been consistently available for the past couple weeks so I intend to keep trying right up until 11:59 PM the night before when I have to keep or cancel my backup reservation, but I am hoping and expecting tables will open up long before then. I watched a flood of Biergarten Restaurant tables randomly open up this week for that same day which leads me to believe something similar will happen for Akershus.

    Similar to you, I did ADR's on 5/28 and I got everything I wanted with no problem, even BOG dinner and PPO breakfast, but I could not get Akershus and I was trying for the 8th day of the trip as my choice. Nothing for the entire week of 27th-2nd for breakfast.

    I am going in the beginning of September and had a problem with my previously scheduled ADR. When I called they said Akershus was going through some rearranging so the tables that up until a month ago were plentifully are now non-existent. A manager couldn't even fix my reservation because the restraunt has reservations frozen. I have no idea how long the changes will take and if that is what is affecting your dates as well, but it could be.

    Really? That is the first I hear of this! I mean there has to be something happening because I have gotten everything else. I've never had this much trouble getting Akershus. I hope they open up soon.

    While only one manager of the three I spoke to helped me solve the problem, all of the CM managers I spoke with confirmed they were "rearranging" things and were limiting reservations. With a little pixie dust one manager was able to email the restaurant and the restaurant themselves had to reinstate my original reservation that got canceled when MDE frozen on me while trying to modify. Hopefully, they just aren't sure yet when they will be done and eventually open up some reservations for you guys! Good luck!

    I had no trouble at all getting a reservation for 6:30pm on the 12th. I booked around 6:00am on the 11th for a trip 12/8-12/15

    I was told not available right now today & yesterday, certain restaurants at EP. I am going 12/16-12/27. Akershus nor GG wasn't available for any of those dates B/L. But I was able to make reservations @ BoG for all 3 dates that I wanted except for the MVMCP dates.

    Same boat as you all. We should all just take our boat and ride the Frozen ride until we get a Ressie for our trip window in December.

    Thanks. Seems like some people had luck and some didn't. I'm sure something will pop up.
