YIKES - I'm so nervous for it to be 7am! But I am here waiting with my finger on redial (hoping I have the right telephone number and praying I get one of the first CM's). Heres to everyone crazy enough to be up at 6:30am like me (or even earlierfor you West Coasters) on a Saturday to make dinner reservations 3 months in advance! :lmao: I hope we all get what we are looking for!

Easy as pie!

Had to hold for 5 minutes (then had to get my CC out of my car or MNSSHP tix)

Got everything I wanted except Le Cellier had to book lunch instead of dinner, but got the same day which was important since its a birthday dinner. Lunch actually works better.

Here is my list:

Chef Mickey 9/12 7:40 am
Tony's 9/12 6:30 pm
Cape May 9/13 7:45 am
Tusker House 9/14 8 am
OHana 9/15 7:30 am
Le Cellier 9/15 2:20 pm

Are those times too early for breakast? Now Im second guessting !!!:eek: Last time we went was New Years where I needed to allow or a few sleep in mornings, but this trip, all of the parks are closing earlier and with less emh that I felt we needed to be up and at em early in order to have enough time to do everything we want to do.

Yay, I'm done! Well, for the first half anyway...

9/13: Hollywood & Vine Fantasmic Package 3.30pm (I wanted Mama Melrose but it wasn't available- I've been to H&V before and enjoyed it, despite the bad reviews on here!)
9/14: Boma 6.30pm
9/15: Yak & Yeti 12.00pm
9/18: Le Cellier 6.55pm
9/20: Cinderella's Royal Table 7.35pm
9/20: Tutto Italia 12.00pm

Unfortunately I couldn't get Mickey's Backyard BBQ for the 19th. This was DBF's choice so I'll have to find a suitable alternative!

So, after making all my resevations and then having the computer crash, she went back in and thankfully, I got everything within 5 minutes of the original reservation. So here's what I got!

9/11 - Whispering Canyon Cafe, 5:25 p.m.
9/12 - Teppan Endo - 5 p.m.
9/13 - Cinderella's table, 10:10 a.m. (wanted earlier but oh well)
9/13 - Fantasmic! package - Hollywood & Vine - 4 p.m. (wanted Mama Melrose but those were all gone)
9/14 - Tutto Italia - 5:45 p.m.
9/15 - Fulton's Crab House - 6 p.m.
9/16 - Le Cellier LUNCH - 12:10 p.m.
9/17 - Ohana - 5 p.m.
9/18 - Chef Mickey's - 10:05 a.m. (goodbye brunch)

Whew! The only thing I'm scared about is that when she pulled up my intial reservation, it showed my name but had my address and telephone number as someone who lived in Virgina. Um, I live in Missouri. But they had the right hotel, number of people in the party, dates of stay, etc. so hopefully this isn't going to cause issues! Will have the TA check on that on Monday.

Congrats everyone for getting everything they wanted. My day to call is tomorrow so wish me luck (actually my TA is doing it for me but I am still nervous).

We are also doing more lunches this time. If I were paying for the dining plan I would stick with more dinners but with free dining we are trying other options.

I too was on hold at 7:00 am this morning! I got everything I wanted but the Fantasmic package so it's OK if we don't see this time around. I think the crowd for that night will be crazy.

9/12 Boma's
9/13 Mama Melrose (no Fantasmic package)
9/15 Chefs de France
9/16 Tony's

We hated the Backyard BBQ.

Hoop Dee Doo is a sooooooo much better dinner show , if you are looking for Mickey, Chef Mickey's for dinner might be a suitable alternative.

Hi,
I have a split reservation. I got a wonderful CM this morning. Fortunately,
I got right though with virtually no wait. She did allow me to make my 1st night ADR and B,L,D for the next day (ck out for 1st Reservation). I have to call tomorrow for the rest of our vacation under 2nd Reservation number. This is what I got so far.
Kona - B 8:05
California Grill - D 7:55(said she could not reserve window seat had to ask when we ck in)
Raglan Rd. L - 11:45 (tried Wolfgang Puck Cafe but nothing available)
1900 Park Fare Cinderellas Gala Feast - D 6:40

I did ask her about any CM's lunch times for any weeks in Sept. and she said she did not know anything about lunch for CM's? She also explained how the Tusker/Nemo pkg. worked but only had times for lunch (1-1:40) attached to the 3:15 show. I thought I had read that they were going to open up times for a different show???

I hope I am so lucky again tomorrow to get right in with no wait. I wish I could have done all of them today under 1st Reservation number, but I still very happy with these ADR's(this was my 1st time doing this):yay: Godd luck everyone making yours this weekend.

Today is my 90 day mark and I have been really stressing about ADRs. Called at 7:00 this morning, got through with no wait time, and got all my reservations within a few minutes of when I wanted them except 3, and those are still at doable times. Here's what I got for a party of 6:

1. 9/11 Ohana dinner 7:05 (was really worried about this one)
2. 9/12 1900 Park Fare 4:30
3. 9/13 T-Rex 4:30 (already had this one-made with rest. last wk)
4. 9/14 Sci-Fi 11:10
5. 9/14 50s Prime Time 4:15 (wanted 5:30, but this is ok)
6. 9/15 Crystal Palace 3:25 (wanted 4:30 or 5:00 before MNSSHP, but I'll keep trying for a later time)
7. 9/16 Tusker House breakfast 9:20 (this one I think is a little too early after MNSSHP til 12:00 the night before, wanted 10:30)
8. 9/17 Chef Mickeys 5:05
9. 9/16 Boma 8:30
10. 9/18 Biergarten 5:05
11. 9/19 Ohana breakfast 8:10 (yay, this was DS6's only request)
12: 9/19 Rainforest Cafe DTD 4:30 (got this one last week direct through restaurant)

All in all, I'm thrilled!!! Can't believe I got Ohana on our arrival night so close to the time I asked for (I asked for 7, so 7:05 is awesome). Chef Mickey's was a little tough to get, had to look for it several different dates and times before I could get it, but in the end I'm happy with that ressie.

See now, I didn't call until 7:00am Western time, so it was something like 10:00am out where the calls are taken. I got right through and booked my three first choices and times for Sept. 11th. I have to get ressies one day at a time since I haven't booked the actual vacation yet (can't afford it until July 1st), but it still worked out. I got the Crystal Palace at 9am, Tony's Town Square at 1pm, and Liberty Tree Tavern at 6pm. This was my first time making ressies, so I was very happy. YAY!

Have a great time at Discovery Cove! It is one place I've always wanted to try!
Our favorite CS at DTD are Wolfgang Puck Express and Earl of Sandwich, both located in the Marketplace section of DTD.
Have a great trip! :)

Congratulations!!! I also see that your girls are about the same age as mine. My 11 year old wants to do BBB this time because her friends will be there and they are doing it. I hope she enjoys it.

Here are our choices in order:

11th Chef Mickeys
12th 1900 Park Fare
13th Crystal Palace
14th Le Cellier
15th Kona Cafe
16th 'Ohana
17th Coral Reef
18th 50's Prime Time Cafe
19th Chef Mickeys again/DH requested it. :rotfl2:

I was excited too. I called right at 7:00 and got straight through. I also made ADR's for my friend for the same week, and I booked BBB for the girls plus added a day for BF. All in all it took 53 minutes. :wizard:

Just a reminder that this is FL and to expect an afternoon shower and the humidity. The more hairspray they use the more it might not look right the next day.

This was a great tip. Yesterday (9/13) I called in for my AD however couldn't book Rainforest Cafe for 9/12 because they have a strick 90 day rule. So, I got up this morning and call at 8:10 (had a wedding last night so didn't set an alarm) and got a recording of 30 min wait! I hung up and and remembered this tip and called directly to RFC and bingo! I got right in (no wait) and the time I wanted. Thank you for this tip!

I was one of the lucky ones who called on Friday and not only got right through, but was able to make reservations for most of my stay, even though we are doing a split stay. I was ready to stop and the CM said I could continue going - I did give him my second reservation number at some point.

But got everything we wanted, on the days we wanted, most within 15 minutes of the requested time. :yay: CRT for dinner on our second day was the only one we had to move by about two hours. Our others include Ohana, LeCellier (made for our 10th day and they actually had a number of times to choose from), and CP breakfast.

Then after thinking about it yesterday, we decided to try Chef Mickeys for dinner on our arrival night since we are staying at the CR for two nights before moving to AKV. Didn't think I'd have a shot, but was able to get it for about 7:30 - I had asked for 8:00, but was just happy to get close to the time. Thought there would be no chance at this one!

Now I can get ready for DH to start changing his mind and I have to start trying to move things :rotfl:

last time she got the princess style with the bun on top and it stayed up for about 5 days. I'm not sure what she wants this time but I can do a touch up the morning of the crt. hopefully it will be okay if not we'll try something else that morning. it's Disney everything will be fine
