how are you getting theme park music? I have some bad static music from Disney musicals I think. I'd much rather have attraction music if I have to wait this long!!

Those of you who are done already, did you call CRO or disney dining line? Seems like there is a backup @ the disney dining line first?

gingerfeathers
06-14-2009, 06:25 AM
Wow, I got everything I wanted, and at good times too! I don't know what I'm going to do with myself now that I won't have a need to stalk the ADR wanted/exchanged/cancelled thread and call everyday! (not that I'm complaining)

I got:

Sat. 9/12 - Crystal Palace 6:50 PM
Sun. 9/13 - Coral Reef 6:55 PM
Mon. 9/14 - 50's Prime Time 6:35 PM
Tue. 9/15 - Chef Mickey's 5:20 PM
Wed. 9/16 - Le Cellier 8:10 PM
Thu. 9/17 - Wolfgang Puck's 7:00 PM

:banana: I was so nervous about this, but I called at 7 on the dot (okay, 6 my time!), and got through with only a 5-ish minute wait. So for everyone whose window is coming up soon, have faith if you're willing to get up early! Even my dog is still passed out on my bed! :lmao: And speaking of... I'm heading back there now!

DoodlesBow
06-14-2009, 06:26 AM
I called right at 7am and was told 30 min or more wait. :scared:

Tapping fingers here... ugh!!! Why do we stress about this. LOLLL:worship:

disnemimi
06-14-2009, 06:27 AM
still on hold...tring to refigure my dining places and times since I'm on hold so long.:confused:

DoodlesBow
06-14-2009, 06:27 AM
Me to I am sooooo nervous!~!!

gingerfeathers
06-14-2009, 06:28 AM
That's strange that I got in after about 5 minutes after calling right at 7, but some of you are stuck with such a long wait! And I called the Disney Dining line (it's the only one I have saved in my cell phone, so thus the one I was going to call). I did call the line saying I wanted to book Chef Mickey's during my trip. Maybe that made a difference...? :confused3

Good luck all! I think I'm heading back to bed.

Hi! Just wondered if you called CRO or disney dining phone No. Too llate now but wondering if I should have tried CRO since 7am on the dot & already 30 min hold on dining line. Thanks!

Looking at your reservations looks like we will be in Epcot and HS on the same day!

I called the grand gathering number (but was probably rerouted to the dining line since she said dining when she picked up) right at 7. Was on hold for 3 minutes before I got through. Took 27 minutes total for my ressies for 12 people:

9/12 @ 6:50 PM Chef Mickey
9/14 @ 10:45 AM Akerhaus (for 9)
9/14 @ 11:30 AM Crystal Palace (for 3)
9/15 @ 12:15 PM CRT
9/18 @ 3:50 Mama Melrose Fantasmic
We already have the safari grand gathering booked.

Good luck everyone! I didn't have any trouble at all getting the places/times I wanted.

Oh one more thing, the CM that booked my dining said she actually works for recreation reservations but since Disney Dining was so busy she was taking some overflow calls which may explain the extra long wait today.

MarkinNM,

DHS closes on the 17th at 7p and there isn't a fantasmic scheduled according to the Disney website. Maybe they are adding one? How did you know to ask for this?

I called at 8:20 and was on hold for 30 mins. Got everything I wanted.. but had already decided to be highly flexible with my times long before I called. All my times ended up being in the ballpark for me...

Oherwise I got everything I wanted including CRT breakfast and dinner at Le Cellier. Now I just ahve to wait 10 more days to call back for the second leg of my trip since it's on a new reservation.

We will be arriving on August 22 and currently have most dinners booked from 7:30 to 8:30pm. Our original thoughts are too stay at the pool in the mornings (as it will be hot) until after lunch (at foodcourt), then had to a park at 2pm or so. Break for dinner at 7ish....Then head back to park until closing (only for EMH). If there are no EMH that night, I fear eating a later dinner we'd have no extra park time in the later evening. So I wanted to get others ideas....Thanks! P.S. We've been to Disney many times (just went this past April) :love:

I made mine this AM also, on hold 45 min but the process was fast. The CM kept saying "next, next". Just cruised thru them all and gave summary and confirmation numbers at the end.
Smooth process, although I was prepared. I had a list with date restaurant and time in order of prioity (to me).
I recommend having a very clear list with what you want date and time with pen ready to record confirmation numbers.
Overall very happy, I can breath easy now. :yay:

Called in at 7:00 on the dot and was on hold for 32 minutes. Got everything I wanted except for Beaches & Cream! Who would have thought that B&C would be the hard one to get. Here is what we have: (party of 8 - 5 adults, 3 kids)

9/12 - 1900 Park Fare @4:30 for DD's 1st birthday
9/13 - Yak & Yeti @11:30
9/14 - Boma @ 5:00 (this is where we wanted B&C, Boma was a back up)
9/15 - Kona breakfast @8:30
9/16 - Teppan Edo @ 5:30
9/17 - Ohana @ 5:00 for my mom's birthday
9/18 - LeCellier @ 4:05 for our 8 year anniversary

These are all new restaurants to us. We decided to try new things this year. I am ok with Boma (I think), but I still really want B&C. We have never eaten there, but I just really wanted to try it. What do you think? Stick with Boma or keep calling back to try to get B&C?

06-14-2009, 10:24 AM
So why the long waits on the phone this morning? Any guesses? I make my ADR's a week from today and am getting nervous!

Do they have less staff on Sunday AM???? Are people more willing to get up early since they're leaving for church and won't be back for a while????

So what are you all going to do with your free time now that this hurdle is over?????

06-14-2009, 10:24 AM

Hi again!! Here's what I got this AM, called exactly @ 7 AM, 32 mins on hold.

Sat 9/12 : Chefs of France 7:30 Pm

Sun. 9/13: lunch: Grand Floridian Cafe @ 12:35
dinner: California Grill @7:40

Mon. 9/14: lunch: Tony's Town Square@12:25
dinner:Brown Derby@6:45

Tues 9/15: pool day in AM, lunch probably Beaches & Cream
dinner: 1900 Park Faire @ 5:50, then on to MNSSHP

Wed. 9/16: dinner: Narcoosee's @ 7:30

Thurs. 9/17: lunch: Sci Fi @ 12:10
dinner: LE CELLIER @ 7:50:yay:

Fri. 9/18:lunch: LTT @12:20
dinner: Yachtsman's @ 7:15 ( a last night tradition for us!)


Sat. 9/19: lunch: Tutto Italia@1:00

Still a few lunches to get figured out. Most breakfasts we'll probably split @ Captain's Grill, not big breakfast eaters! All my times were really close to what I wanted except 1900 Park Faire, asked for 5:15, he originally gor 4:45, but offered to look for something else. I was happier with the 5:50 that we got. All ressies for 2 adults, by the way.

GREAT Cm: Greg. Fast, efficient; he saved my ressies half way thru. Said he didn't want the computer to crash if he put in too many @ once. Also only read the info to me once & gave me the first 6 nos. on all the ressies only once, then just told me the last nos. individually.Thanked me for calling 90 days out, said what a difference it makes & have much they love guests who are prepared with all their choices ready to book!

Only problem, I was so happy after talking to Greg, I forgot to do the survey after the call. I know I took it on line once but don't remember how. Anyone know?
Good luck to those of you still to call, hope you all get what you want too!!:wizard:

I'm really curious as to why some of us had a less than 10 minute wait, while others who called in at the exact same time had an hour wait! That really doesn't make sense to me. I didn't even have very fast fingers getting through all the prompts before I was put on hold.. :confused3 strange.

Either way, I'm glad it seems that for the most part everyone was getting what they wanted this morning! That makes me happy. :)

Hi! Just wondered if you called CRO or disney dining phone No. Too llate now but wondering if I should have tried CRO since 7am on the dot & already 30 min hold on dining line. Thanks!

I called the Disney Dining line, and then when it asked if I was wanting to book either CRT or CM's, I said yes. I wonder if it was that which made it go faster..? Really not sure!

Thought I was going to have absolutely no luck with the way it started! :confused: I was on hold for 27 minutes, happily listening to ride music, when the music stopped and I thought I was being transferred. Nope! Just cut off. So, I called back and said No to V&A and was immediately transferred to them. They can't put you back, so....call for the third time!!! After being on hold for 37 minutes, I finally got a CM :thumbsup2

All worked out though :cool1:

Got:

9/12 RR 7pm

You know, it wouldn't take so long on the phone if they didn't give you the smoking policy, etc after EVERY reservation you ask for.

How about just once at the end of the call?


I didn't hear any policies at all!
In fact, she didn't offer to review anything either, so at the end I repeated everything back to her with dates, times, etc. And she just was saying yes. I think I will call back and just reconfirm!

She also didn't confirm my name, address, etc. when she first picked up. :confused3

Hi! Good Luck on Thursday! I had the greatest CM yesterday. I did have a 30 min. hold after calling right @ 7 but still got every ressie I wanted within about 20 mins of what I asked for. Made 13 ressies in 20 mins. Ask for your most important ones first, then just go day by day after you get those. Fingers crossed for you!:)
