Update (7:22 AM) -
Holy technology he!!. Website (via chrome and safari, started with chrome) and app had EVERY issue imaginable until about 6:08 AM. Website would find a time and then have an error when I clicked, happened 5-10 times, then I got an error message when trying to search times, got a few characters showing up saying “blah blah blah - you are a failure” (what i was interpreting they were saying). Then, I switched over to app which appeared much faster but every time I clicked on a time it would have “error loading page” message. Happened 5-10 times.
The other issue I had was, it wasn’t letting me book the second half of my stay. Split stay b/w Riviera and GF (5/21-5/25, 5/25-5/28). I was able to book 5/25 but not 5/26, 5/27, or 5/28 (although I wouldn’t be booking 5/28).
I got my first confirmed reservation at 6:08 AM and it was my #3 on my list (tried for Oga’s Canteen on both HS days). Got a good time on HS Day 2, but 10:15 AM on HS Day 1. I was hoping for closer to lunch, but on HS Day 1, we’ll have my brother in law with us (will have DAS pass), so I won’t be as concerned about eating into that valuable morning ride time.
I wasn’t able to get Homecomin on Friday 5/21 for dinner, but I did get Morimoto’s Asia at 5:30PM. We may keep or just hang at hotel. I am currently waiting on hold to see if I can book Thursday 5/27 for Homecomin (AK day, park closes at 5PM).
I tried to stay calm during all the technology issues, b/c they did continue past 6:08 AM. I felt like I hit a good stretch b/w 6:08 AM and 6:20 AM, when my son came downstairs, I got distracted and it seemed website noticed and started acting up again.
The biggest disappointment was Topolino’s Terrace for breakfast on Monday 5/24. It is our Epcot day, so I was hoping for anytime b/w 8:00 - 10:00 AM. Part of those early issues were w/ TT. I saw 9:05, clicked and error, 9:10, clicked and error, and then saw 9:20, clicked and error. I ended up booking 10:30 AM. This was at around 6:10 AM. However, at around 7AM, I called Disney to just try and beg for something w/ TT and to ask about the split stay being an issue. While on hold, for only 25 minutes, I tried to modify TT and got 9:15 AM which is great.
I’ll update you later on what Disney CM was able to do about split stay. Also, this may be rambling as CM picked up here at the end.
