What's the latest on BOG standby

I have friends going to WDW this weekend with plans to be in MK on Friday and they also have party tix that night. They were not able to secure a FPP for BOG at lunch nor an ADR for dinner. SO, how should I advise them to try and get a table through standby line? I had read that things were fluid with BOG dining these days. Something about limited standby windows or no standy by at all. Does anyone know what they can expect this Friday and what they should try? Thanks!

I would say have them show up early at 10:30 in case they are handing out cards with return times. They should also be able to find out at that point if there are no walkup’s at that point so they can make other plans.
