Many of the restaurants use OpenTable

The Disney Dining reservations fill up at 60 days because of Facebook groups and bots locking up reservations that are then used as "trade". It's annoying.

You can combat it one of two ways:

A. Use OpenTable for many reservations at either Disney Springs or the hotels. Disney holds back a significant number via OpenTable.

B. Don't sweat early planning and just wait until 48-72 hours before your targeted date. Disney charges a $10/person late cancellation fee if you cancel after the 24 hour mark, so you will see tons of availability open up 2-3 days beforehand.
