Sister has attempted ADRs -> NADA for dinner at basically anyplace we asked!
Does anybody have the magic word(s) or are we just stuck? I'm pretty shocked that at 89 days out (monday) there's nothing!
Should we say we are 8 people, make ADRs for groups of 4/3, 2/2/3, 1/1/1/1/1/2 and wave at each other across the place?

Try different group sizes...if you asked for 7, try 10 or even 12.
Try different restaurants. Which restaurant did you try?
Keep trying back...cancellations are made all the time.
Also ask if 2 tables of 4 are available...not ideal but better than nothing.

We've traveled with large groups and had a lot of luck with getting 2 tables. If you are willing to be split up, try it. Once you get to the restaurant, they are usually great about either getting you 1 table together or atleast 2 tables close to each other.
You also should be flexible with times. If you are trying for the most popular times, it will be harder. Try for the earliest times available or later if you are flexible. And silly as it sounds, if you ask for 5:30 there may be nothing available, try 5:35 and there is. (Most of the CM's will check that for you, but some won't unless you ask)
Try calling again and getting a different CM. Sometimes you can get a more helpful CM on the line to offer suggestions. Most CM's will try their hardest to get you something.

Some restaurants to try: Whispering Canyon Cafe, Tusker House, Trail's End, Turf Club, Restaurant Marrakesh, The Plaza. I'm sure others can suggest more locations.

In the parks, we have had little trouble getting Crystal Palace, Biergarten, or Mama Melrose reservations.
