I know they are beginning reservations for the CP dinner pkgs on July 2. We are looking at Thurs Nov. 29th, how hard will it be to get a ressie? Is this like CRT, do I need to be poised by the phone at 6:59a on Monday? I'm hoping not as it will be 5:59a here and I'm so not a morning person especially on summer vacation but I'll do what I have to.

I was wondering the same thing. Our date is Christmas Day though so I am going to be on the phone at 6:30 am, just in case.

I'm wondering if it's worth the price. I'm not really into the actual show but was wondering if it was a better deal than getting food from the regular menus and paying the regular price. We're AP so not on the DDP. Any thoughts?

IMHO, I think it my be cheaper buying the food individually. If you don't normally eat an appetizer or a dessert then I think OOP will be cheaper. It also depends on where you want to eat too. I think the package is only worth it if you really want to see the show and are afraid it will be full due to a popular narrator or busy day (like Christmas Eve/Day).

Yes, you really should book it ASAP since you want Christmas Day. Gary Sinese is very popular and it's a holiday.

It's also important to call early/ASAP if you want a popular restaurant like Le Cellier and especially if you are a party of 2. They don't have very many tables for two.

We're planning on attending the 8:15 P.M. show on November 29. Maybe we'll see you there. Try to book the CP as soon as you can, but you don't have to call in right at 7:00 A.M. Right now, the reader for that evening has not been scheduled. Hopefully, we'll have someone very good. Good luck!

It really depends on the place you want to eat at and the guest speaker is.Except of course Christmas Eve and Day. For these you need to book ASAP. I see prices have really jumped up from last year.

We had no problem getting CP for christmas eve last year. I did not call the first day I could, but very soon after(2 days, maybe).The only thing that I don't like is that you have to eat before the show becasue they give you your pass at the restaurant. We had to eat at 4:00pm for the 6:45pm show. We ate at Teppanyaki and it was fine because it was our arrival day and we had late breakfast and this was a late lunch/early dinner. Liked it better when you could eat after the show, IMHO.

By the way, Gary Sinese is wonderful..it really made the holiday for us. We have done CP 3 times and don't know if we are taking the time this year, although we do have adr for Le Cellier now for christmas eve and may try to change to have CP.

I plan on being up and ready to get my CP ADR for Le Cellier as soon as their phone lines open. I really want my CP package for Le Cellier and am willing to give up my sleep to get it. I am not sure if the other restaurants get booked up as quick but Le Cellier is hard to get even without it being a CP package,especially for only one person like myself:)
