I was unable to book Kouzzina online, you have to call. I got ADR for date I want after some time on the line w/ cm talking to supv. CM said hours were not showing up in system b/c not on DP. However other DISers have been able to book and confirm that it is 1TS credit on DP. Since I called early Sun am I am going to call back Mon am.

Made adr's online this morning for party of 5. Got everywhere I wanted at almost the exact times I wanted. Going to keep checking to see if those times become available. I didn't make any adr's for nov 7. We arrive in the early afternoon and figure we'll eat at f&w or try to get a last minute adr somewhere if necessary :laughing:

Nov 8 Boma breakfast & Ohana dinner
Nov 9 The Wave breakfast & Jiko dinner
Nov 10 Kona Cafe dinner
Nov 11 CRT breakfast (just for me & youngest daughter, the rest are going to the beach that day)
Nov 12 Kona Cafe breakfast & The Wave dinner
Nov 13 Chef Mickey's breakfast & Le Cellier dinner

I had to end up calling in for CRT cause it wouldn't let me apply my credit card to the adr for some reason.

Does anyone know what the first seating for Jiko is? I was hoping for 5:00 but the earliest I could find on a couple of different dates was 6:05.

Went online at 5 AM CDT at 90 day mark for 11-1 to 11-6

11-1 no adr, Epcot counter service/food booths, or Tokyo dining
11-2 Jiko dinner - 5:30
11-3 Wolfgang Puck Cafe lunch 12:00
11-4 LeCellier lunch 12:15
11-5 The Wave lunch 12:00
11-6 Perhaps a Kouzzina breakfast before ME to airport

Prefer lunch to dinner during F&W, so we can enjoy all of the music around World Showcase each night. Dinners during F&G, since they eliminated the weekday Flower Power concerts.

Nov. 5---Artist Point
Nov. 8---Fulton's (lunch)
Nov. 9---Le Cellier
Nov. 10--Bistro de Paris (my birthday)

Making the online dining ressies were easy, but for whatever reason, one of the confirmations did not print out, so I didn't have the confirmation number. When I went back to the online site to try to find my ressies, I got a message that said there weren't any reservations with the reservation number. Maybe it had something to do with being a DVC number. Anyway, I called MS and they were able to find my ressies using my phone number. I think there are still a few bugs in the online system.

DD & I are doing a Mom & Me trip and will be arriving Nov 20! We're staying at AKL for the first time and can't wait!!!! Just so happens that tomorrow is our "Double Digit Dance" day!!! We can't make ADRs til next Saturday!

It won't be a fancy trip - we just need a few ADRs, and we're eating at Beaches & Cream a few times since that is one of DD's favorite places to eat!

We're hoping for Yachtsman Steakhouse, Plaza, and LeCellier!

I still need to buy our MVMCP tickets!!!

My window opens Friday morning. I'm so glad it's going back to 180 days, but for now....
I've been trying to familiarize myself w/ the Disney site to book them there BUT, honestly, I'm confused. Something not all that easy to do. I usually figure stuff out quickly.
OKAY, the system rolls over at 6AM eastern right?
Do you have to click on the left for the resorts or parks you are looking to make ADRs for and then choose from a list on teh right to book? is that how it goes? Or am I bot looking at the correct booking page?
And what's the explination for the 404 (or someything like that) error code?

I'm assuming it's easy for the DIS board would have a primmer on it. :laughing:

I'm worrying about that error and hosing it up myself. I'm wondering if I should call. I'm usually really competent on this stuff, got everything I wanted last week for our cruise following our short stay at WDW, but this? Hmmmmm

Hi booking buddy! LOL :rotfl: No worries, you and I only overlap on 2 meals.
Just because you said you've never been and we're both booking on the same day...You'll LOVE Kona Cafe dinner! MASSIVELY GOOD! Cape May dinner is awesome too.
Good luck!

To ppony :

Each dining venue has its own page and there will be a reservations link on that page, on the left. I have my favorites bookmarked in the browser instead of using the Favorites button on the WDW website, I found those more difficult to use. You can also type the name of the restaurant you want in the search box at the top of the page and suggestions will come up beneath that box as you type. Click the link it gives you and it should take you directly to the page.

Also, I usually use Google Chrome browser but it does not work properly with the Disney Dining pages when you're booking reservations, so you should use Firefox or Internet Explorer.

Before 6am the date will not have a link if it's before the 90-day mark. I opened the reservation page for Cinderella before 6am and used the REFRESH button at the top of the page (also CTRL-R) to reload the page so the date I needed would be available.

Just keep practicing beforehand to get a feel for the site. When I booked CRT for breakfast I was completely done and checked out by 6:06 am!

Hope that helps ...

THANKS RAE! GOOD info. That helped a lot. I think I was in the right place anyway.

I'll spend tomorrow exercising my fingers. :lmao: I usually use Safari as my browser (Mac) but of course, sometimes some sites don't like it. Maybe I'll have Firefox ready and loaded. :thumbsup2

Another thing I did ... I had a separate notepad document open where I had already typed my Visa card info -- number, exp date, any other info I would need so I could just copy and paste into the proper places during the checkout process.

You can do several reservations in the same session, you do not have to check out after each restaurant. But if you're looking for something that's hard to get, search that reservation first. Once you put it in your cart, it's my understanding that it's yours until you check out as long as your cart doesn't sit idle for more than 20 minutes. So if you want to book CRT and several other reservations, you don't have to do CRT just by itself. We're staying off property so we have to book ours day-by-day, so CRT was the only thing I could get that day.

Did anyone here book their Disney package through Dreams Unlimited? I'd like to use the Disney online ADR system, but not sure if how it's gonna work since I booked our package with Dreams Unlimited. Do I need my confirmation number from them? Will the online ADR system accept it or must the booking of all my ADRs be made through the travel agent? Also, can I book 10 days out or only at the 90day mark for every ADR?? If anyone can offer some insight to this, it'll be most helpful. Thanks.

And for those of you using a Mac, Safari wouldn't work for me. However, as Rae said, Firefox works fine.

To ppony :

Each dining venue has its own page and there will be a reservations link on that page, on the left. I have my favorites bookmarked in the browser instead of using the Favorites button on the WDW website, I found those more difficult to use. You can also type the name of the restaurant you want in the search box at the top of the page and suggestions will come up beneath that box as you type. Click the link it gives you and it should take you directly to the page.

Also, I usually use Google Chrome browser but it does not work properly with the Disney Dining pages when you're booking reservations, so you should use Firefox or Internet Explorer.

Before 6am the date will not have a link if it's before the 90-day mark. I opened the reservation page for Cinderella before 6am and used the REFRESH button at the top of the page (also CTRL-R) to reload the page so the date I needed would be available.

Just keep practicing beforehand to get a feel for the site. When I booked CRT for breakfast I was completely done and checked out by 6:06 am!

Hope that helps ...
Right now, whether I use Firefox or Safari, I'm getting a 404 error. Now, could that be because I don't have a conf. # put in yet? I've been looking around for where to put one but don't see a place. I didn't book through Disney directly but through AAA. I have that conf # which is suppose dto work.
I'm going to bookmark all 3 places we want to get ADRs so I'll be set there. I started a text page that has numbers on it and will have a CC on hand in case. Oh and a pad of paper to write stuff down on. I got things royally hosed when I was making my cruise reservations for dinner and brunch. I coudln't keep my days straight so I know better to write them down! At least for that I had the ship's concierge to help me. No such luck on land. :headache: THANKS!!!!

I apologize for taking up precious thread space w/ my non-productive chatter. I'm trying to shut up. :rolleyes1

I stayed up until online opened (3am west coast time! thank you very much***) I got the important ones first and then the site started having problems. I could NOT pull up LTT or Y&Y pages AT ALL. (I found a round about way to get LTT but no luck with Y&Y.) Kept trying. was afraid I would lose the ones I'd already made.

Finally called when the phone lines opened. CM was able to get me Y&Y AND change a few ADR's to better times for me. But it took another hour! So I got to bed at 5am my time. I HATE free dining! (We aren't using it and I have never had to worry so much about getting reservations in slower season.)

But, it's all done now and I have my confirmation numbers...Yeah!!!


Nov. 11-20

Yak and Yeti - twice for dinner
Hollywood Brown Derby - twice for lunch
Ohana - dinner
LTT - lunch
Boma's - dinner
Marrakesh - dinner
Plaza Restaurant - dinner before Wishes

We've done the signature restaurants in the past so tried to keep it more simple this time.

Oh, and I used Firefox. I did have my sister make sure we had all the computer updates that the disney tech site recommends a few days before I needed to book our ADR's. I made her update Internet Explorer too just in case.

we have two separate reservations, one using AP rate for 2 nights at POR, and then using DVC points for the rest of the time. So I have the privilege of getting up at 2:45 AM twice to make my ressies. :scared1:

The first round I want to get:
'Ohana 11/21 (D)
le Cellier 11/22 (L or D)

Second round I want to get
Narcoossee's 11/23
50s PTC (L) 11/24
Crystal Palace (L or D) 11/25
Cape May Cafe (B AND D- LOL- what can I say- it's a water park day for us and Cape May got the best reviews for a resort character breakkie and we KNEW we wanted dinner there) 11/27
Whispering Canyon Cafe (DS12's birthday dinner!) 11/28

I'm really only 'worried' about le Cellier. That, and it's Thanksgiving week. popcorn::

Made my ADR's this morning for our trip Nov 12-20... Got 6 out of 9 restaurants we wanted. Wasn't able to get Yak and Yeti, San Angel Inn or Teppan Edo, instead I got Boma, LeCellier(go figure), and Coral Reef. Others I got at exact time I wanted were:

Rose and Crown
Sci Fi
Biergarten
Ohana
50's Prime Time
and Chef Mickeys

I'll keep trying for the ones I couldn't get, but at least we have a backup plan. A little dissapointed, as my son loves Teppan Edo, but hopefully it'll work out.

after getting up @ 5am- since I needed to wake-up b4 getting on the computer (just to function enough to type) my 10 day window didn't open up:scared1::surfweb: I tried EVERYTHING- I waited till phones opened @ 7a- got everything that we wanted plus!!

I was going back & forth about T-Rex (they book 6 months in advance with them) so I have an extra TS, will pay out of pocket for that & CRT-- so I don't have to use 2 on that lunch

T-Rex, Biergarten, CRT, Cape May Cafe (clambake), Le Cellier, 1900 park Fare, Chef Mickey's, Ohana (dinner), Mama Melrose (fant.pkg), Ohana (breakfast), Crystal Palace.. I think that was it-and my MVMCP tickets, and Pirates League...after 1 hr and 15 minutes on the phone!:banana:

up at o-dark-thirty here too and got everything I wanted. YAY The online worked just fine for me and Safari worked as well though it did go buggy at times and I'm not sure if that was the browser or the system.

We're arriving the 13th
Chef Mickey dinner
Ohana breakfast
Kona cafe dinner

it's a short visit before a cruise so we didn't need many. YAY!!!
Back to bed! :surfweb:

o-dark-thirty here too :rotfl: but I am totally loving that online booking system! I was convinced it wasn't going to work for me, but it worked perfectly!

Someone in another thread said to have a tab open for the login window, and a tab open for each restaurant you want, get logged in and hit refresh on all of them, book each one, and check out after booking your last restaurant. Well that was awesome advice because I was done in 12 minutes and got everything I wanted! :thumbsup2

Nov 13-18

Le Cellier
Chef Mickey's
Ohana (twice because that's what DS12 wants ;))
Kona Cafe (breakfast)

I agree. I slept so poorly for the few hours of sleep I got worrying about all of it. DH thinks I'm nuts.

Mac users, their site says Safari works...and it does...BUT it gets wonky at times. When I had trouble with it loading, I would go over to FireFox and it would load fine. BUt then on FF, when I tried to book something else an hour later, I got through the whole proces but the conf. page never came up though I did check and it was in my reservation line-up...SO... both have their issues. Just wanted to give a heads up for Mac users.

That's always been my m.o. when I book anything. Makes it easier! Have as much ready to go in advance as possible. When I have to buy sculptures sometimes, I can be waiting for one certain e-mail to come and I know it will sell out in minutes so in those cases I prepare an order e-mail in advance so all I have to do is click "send" and I'm done. It's a dog eat dog world eh? :laughing:

We are arriving November 14 and departing November 21. We are a party of five, three adults and two kids.

I made the following reservations online this morning at 6:00 EDT. All were within 20 minutes of what I wanted.

11/14 Garden Grill @ 4:30
11/15 Captain's Galley @ 5:50
11/18 Whispering Canyon Cafe @ 5:10
11/19 Sci-fi Dine-in @ 2:30
11/20 Narcoossee's @ 5:35 (for two adults... a night without the kids!)

I called at 7:00 a.m. for...

11/19 Hoop Dee Doo @ 9:30 (20% with TIW card)

I also tried to get a Fantasmic! package (I hate that line!) on 11/16 at Mama Melrose. I was told MM was sold out. OK. Brown Derby and Hollywood & Vine were still available. I really didn't want to spend the BD money, and DW hates buffets, so I passed.

After DW woke up, she said, "let's just go to the Brown Derby. I've always wanted to eat there, anyway." So I called WDW-DINE back at about 10:00 a.m. Of course, BD is gone. So I ended up with...

11/16 Hollywood & Vine @ 4:15

So, aside from the last one, I got everything I wanted, which is great. I guess the food at HV is nothing special, but not bad. We'll find out.

I made our ADRs this morning.

When I first log on to the ADR system, I linked our resort reservation so I could do the +10 - that worked without a hitch. So I first went to CRT, but it didn't show "0" due, but rather showed $159.00. So I got out and started over. . same problem. I pulled up my resort reservation and found the dining plan not listed. GRRRR. It does show up on my hardcopy they mailed me though.

So I logged back into the online system and booked the following:

Breakfast:
Askerhush
Tusker House
Trails End (twice as we are staying at FW this year)
Ohana
1900 Park Fare

Lunch:
50s Prime Time
Tony's

Dinner:
Bierngarten
1900 Park Fare


Then I waited for the phone line to open up. They verified they showed the dining plan, and I booked these verbally:

CRT (lunch)
Hoop Dee Doo (5:00-category 2)
Mickey's Backyard BBQ
BBB prior to CRT

I got everything I was hoping for - at the time I wanted except CRT. I had hoped for a lunch time closer to 3:00 pm, but I got 2:05 - which I'm happy about. My DDs are going to be tickled.

11/15 Le Cellier....really late for us 8:25, but you get what you get

11/16 Biergarten


11/17 Chefs de France

After a few interesting days of online booking not allowing me to open my 10 day window and having to call (and restart over twice after CM was kicked off system and we were disconnected) The ADR's I made were pretty close to what I wanted with the exception of my last ADR. It's a little later then I would like but I will keep trying :)

Woke up at 2:45am pacific time this morning to get ready for our ADR's - it was worth it! We got everything we wanted within 5 minutes of the times we were hoping for! The 10 day window popped up as soon as I entered our reservation number - it was actually a few minutes before 3:01am. The dining plan must not have been attached because I had to pay in full for CRT and Hoop-De-Do, we'll just get a refund when we dine - that's how it works right? Staying November 14-21 at Beach Club Villas - our first trip to Disneyworld and we're celebrating our 9th Anniversary. Our kids 6 and 7 are very excited, so am I!

This is what we got:

14th - no reservations Beaches N Cream after check in
15th Sci Fi Dine 3pm / Hoop-De-Do Cat 1 at 9:30pm
16th Liberty Tree 1pm / Le Cellier 8:05pm
17th Tutto Italia 1pm / Chef Mickeys 8pm
18th CRT 12:55pm / Narcosee 745pm - our Anniversary!
19th Yak N Yet 1pm / 50's Prime Time 8:05pm
20th San Angel Inn 1pm / Rose N Crown 7:55pm

On deluxe dining plan so we're doing room service for breakfast first full day and last day with snacks for breakfast the other mornings. We're going to try to stay on pacific time so we'll be waking up late and staying up late! I've been lurking on the boards for a few months while planning our trip and wanted to thank everyone for all of the great information! Looking forward to ordering an anniversary cake and goodie baskets for my kids!:)

I haven't read the complete thread, so please excuse me if this has been asked and answered. What time, eastern time, can you make ADR's online? I have been to WDW many times, but never made ADR's until I got to the resort, at guest services. With the free dining, it seems things have changed.
If you phone for ADR's is 7:00 am the earliest time to call?

Thank you for any information.

Gary,
I got online this morning at 5:00am Central, so that would mean 6:00 am for you. The earliest time to call is 7:00 am eastern. As you can see, online opens one hour earlier than the phone line.
Hope this helps you.

When you check in, request that you want to be seated close to the tank. I've done this before, I just had to wait a longer for it.

I made my ADR's online this morning, and I got everything I wanted!!! :woohoo:

well i got up at 6:30, had my coffee and dialed the phone at 7:01. Got a fantastic cast member and away we wwnt with reservations here what i got:

16th Tony Town Square 6:05pm
17th Chefs de France 4:30 pm
18th Yak & Yeti 7:00pm
19th Sci Fi 4:30 pm
20th Crystal Palace 8:05 am

the only one i will try to chage is Sci Fi, no Brown Derby available. It would only let CM book a 2 top. Nothing available under Fantasmic package either. So i will just try again. We got our dining times we wanted too so i am very happy with these.
BTW, i messed around with the online system a few days ahead to practice and decided that i would phone in my resvations rather than doing them on-line.

Total time on the phone with the cast member was: 8 minutes! She was great too!
Have a great day all

Is Tuttio Italia (what ever it is) on the dining plan? Also is it just one table service if it is?

Yes, Tutto Italia (in Epcot) is on the dining plan and it is one TS credit.:goodvibes

Hope that helps!

I was up around 4:45am my time to be on the puter by 5 to make my ADR's. There is still a problem on the website with CRT requiring a full payment by credit card instead of a card to hold the ressie. We have the meal plan with one QS and one sit down a day. We decided not to go with CRT because they don't have the princesses for dinner. We can see Cinderella on our cruise anyway.

My ressies for the week of November 16th are:

Nov 16th: Sanaa(showed up unavailable but we got it when I called) 6:30pm
November 17th Chef Mickey's 9am MVMCP QS dinner probably Noodle Station
November 18th Akershus 9:20am
November 18th Le Cellier 2pm probably will give up
November 18th Teppan Edo 5:30pm

So I have to decide which dinner to give up *most likely Le Cellier because I thought I have 4 credits but I was told I only get one for each nite we are staying. We are there from the 16th-leaving 19th. Is that right?

You can look here to get a start date.
http://pscalculator.net/pscalc.php
They are getting them in advance because they are staying at WDW resorts and beginning at 90 days out from your arrival, you can start booking from your arrival date plus 10 days out. You can't back up 10 days from your arrival and start then, ONLY from your arrival date forward.

Yes, 90 days +10. Check in date and then 10 days after that so you don't have to go online every day to make each day's ADRs from your arrival date. It's easy. That covers most people's plans. Good luck! :thumbsup2

I was up from 3-5AM on 8/10 to make our first week's ADRs, so here's what we have so far:

Kouzinna - dinner
CRT - Dinner
Planet Hollywood - dinner
LeCellier - dinner
House of Blues - dinner
Brown Derby - dinner
Tutto Italia - lunch

I'll need to call again on Friday to try and get Liberty Tree Tavern for 11/19.

The hardest to get were LeCellier and Kouzinna. On-line didn't recognize us as being on the DDP so it charged us for CRT, which then took another call to get that one cancelled and rebooked.

To get to the Disney site use this link http://disneyworld.disney.go.com/ then select my disney vacation at the upper right. At the bottom of the page there are different options. Select dining, and begin your search. You just have to select make dinner reservation on the page usually on the left side and enter your resort confirmation number and phone number on the ressie:)

Was up bright and early on 8/17 at 6:00 a.m. and made the following ADR's online for my stay Nov. 15th to the 21st:

- 'Ohana (Dinner)
- Hoop Dee Doo Review
- Sci-Fi Dine-In (Lunch)
- Boma (Dinner)
- Chef Mickey's (Dinner)

Other than an issue with the system charging my credit card for the HDDR even though I will be on the dining plan (had to call at 7:00 a.m. to have this corrected), everything went very smoothly and I am a big fan of the online reservation system.

I made our reservations for our trip's original dates (last week of October) and got everything, including preferred Fantasmic seating, then it had to be switched (to the first week of November) and was on the WDW dining line for over 45 minutes trying to get everything switched! :lmao: I got everything except the preferred seating with our DHS res. I've been calling every day for that and CRT (which we weren't going to get because of having to pay for TWO meals up front, but decided our DD would LOVE it)

I think I'm most excited about the luau - DH and I paid for it on our honeymoon and it was rained out. :( We were refunded, of course, but what a let-down!

Nov. 3 - Akershus (Princess Dinner 5:05pm)
Nov. 4 - Tony's Town Sq. (6pm .. trying for CRT breakfast or lunch though!)
Nov. 5 - Chef Mickey's (7:55pm)
Nov. 6 - Yak & Yeti's (3pm)
Nov. 7 - Spirit of Aloha (category 2, 5:15pm)
Nov. 8 - Hollywood & Vine (5:15pm .. still trying to get preferred seating at ANY rest.!!)
Nov. 9 - Cape May Cafe (9:10am)

You know, I was getting worried watching this thread and seeing everyone else get their ressies. As I said in my other post, I wanted a 6:00 time and my choice was either 5:15 or 6:40. The CM said that Ohana was the hardest one to get recently. Sorry to worry you, but I'm sure you are already considering a back-up plan. My DS13 wanted to do Teppan Edo and we thought that would be fun and different. Good luck!

You can go online at 6:00 am eastern time or call at 7:00 am. I'd do the online just to get a jump on anyone calling. However, my 90+10 didn't pull up, only the 90 day so I needed to call for the +10. Good luck!

Looks like I am not the only one who can't get the system to recognize 90 + 10! I had to call at 7am this morning and got everything I wanted EXCEPT Thanksgiving at Akershus. I booked at Tutto Italia for Thanksgiving, but with 2 princess lovers, I am pretty bummed. Any other suggestions on good places for Thanksgiving (not necessarily princess meals)? I know we could do 1900 Park Fare (not a huge fan of buffet on Thanksgiving) or CRT (don't want to use 2 TS credits), but those options aren't what we are looking for... Thanks!

Did you upgrade to the regular dining plan to go to all those table services?

I was thinking that too! I upgraded because the difference was about $240 and we had 2 places we wanted to go to that would have cost us just about that for us.

I'm excited too, people are getting sick of me. November seems SO far away, especially since we originally planned for the last week of October!

Yay! Glad to see this post on here! I'm so excited about our ADR's and my DH and DD really could care less. So I'm thrilled to get to share my excitement with someone who understands!!! :cool1:

Oct 31 Ohana 6:10pm
Nov 1 Mama Melrose 5:30pm
Nov 2 Kouzinna 5pm
Nov 3 LeCellier 4:55pm

:thumbsup2 Online ADR was super easy, all times I got was within 10 mins of the time requested. Called in to get Kouzinna and had no problem booking. :wizard:


So all it took to get my family intrested in making plans was to post on here. :rotfl2: Since I posted this DH said he would really like to try Biergarten, so I gave up our coveted LeCellier ressie so we can try it.

Then DD heard about Sci-Fi, so I changed Mama Melrose for it. I know from reading reviews, that might not have been the best choice food wise, but I'm just happy they took an interest and the place looks fun. :yay:

If you are donig that many TS meals you may want to crunch the numbers on upgrading to the regular DDP. I would think that $10 per person per day would be cheaper than paying OOP for them. You would also get several more credits essentially for free, even it the price difference is close!

Then DD heard about Sci-Fi, so I changed Mama Melrose for it. I know from reading reviews, that might not have been the best choice food wise, but I'm just happy they took an interest and the place looks fun. :yay:

I think that's more important, going somewhere you're really excited about.

Thank you, it gives me hope :cool1:

as soon as I find out for sure I will post back here...I even tried calling the rest. itself and left a message not sure if they will get back to me or not. I have tried almost every day in Nov. online and it says not available, so we will see what happens :confused3

If you are donig that many TS meals you may want to crunch the numbers on upgrading to the regular DDP. I would think that $10 per person per day would be cheaper than paying OOP for them. You would also get several more credits essentially for free, even it the price difference is close!

REALLY? I am going to check into this! The total of our 3 TS meals is 375.50 + tip, and adding the $10/pp/x7 days is $280. I am going to call right now. Thanks! I need to find out if we can use a sit down meal credit for a CS meal if we choose. We don't like to have a big, long dinner every day, and I've heard it's hard to get in these days due to free dining. Something for us to think about..., but thanks for the tip!! Calling right now!

Ok Cape May Cafe actually called me back and said they are not closed and they had alot of open reservations so she was going to look into the problem but in the meantime she gave me a reservation right over the phone for whatever I wanted...we are very excited so those that are having problems I would call the disney dine and if they say they are closed tell them otherwise and if they still give you a problem call the rest. yourself! Thank you Cape May Cafe for calling me back :cool1:

you might consider using some of those TS credits for lunches as well. They don't take as long, and are more casual food. We did that last trip b/c we didn't want to burn a lot of time. 4 more TS credits would mean a lot of nice lunches inside out of the weather, whatever it may be in Nov., or you could do a couple of signature restaurants for 2TS if you wanted.

Thanks for the update - that's great they called you back! When I called they said there wasn't anything available so I went back to the online ADR and found that if I needed a table for 2, 5, or 6 there were lots of times available, but nothing for 3 or 4 on the days I checked. We booked 2 tables for 2 (we don't care if we're split-up at this one meal) and will keep checking for a table for 4.

Looks like I am not the only one who can't get the system to recognize 90 + 10! I had to call at 7am this morning and got everything I wanted EXCEPT Thanksgiving at Akershus. I booked at Tutto Italia for Thanksgiving, but with 2 princess lovers, I am pretty bummed. Any other suggestions on good places for Thanksgiving (not necessarily princess meals)? I know we could do 1900 Park Fare (not a huge fan of buffet on Thanksgiving) or CRT (don't want to use 2 TS credits), but those options aren't what we are looking for... Thanks!

Were you trying to get the Princess Storybook Breakfast or anytime at Akershus on Thanksgiving Day? We were hoping to go there as well and I don't make ADRs until Thursday. Oh well, Tutto's sounds like a great plan B to me as well.

12/1 Probably just counter service all day. This is our last day at WDW.

Only problem I had was Thanksgiving dinner, I had to call and make that reservation, everything else went as planned online.

I wanted to try Teppan Edo, Restaurant Marakesh and The Wave, but would have to trade for a reservation that I already have. Would anybody trade one of these current reservations for one of those 3 restaurants.

You have to also understand that we use the TS times as other people would go back to their hotels. We go do stuff then we get to take a break, eat, talk about what we did already and what we still want to do. This way we can actually spend all day in the park and we aren't that tired or grumpy.

What can I say it works for me and Bayou and the kids.popcorn::

I cannot pull up my Thanksgiving Day ADR for Chef Mickey's on My Vacation either. I made all of the other ADRs online this morning at 6:00 am (and those all show up online), but the system would not let me book anything I tried for Thanksgiving Day. I called at 7:00 am and got what I wanted. Reassures me a little to know I am not the only one that has this issue.


On to the ADRs for our party of 3:

I got up at 4:45 am and stumbled to the computer for these babies, but WOW was I happy with what I got and I love the online ADR system!!!


Arrival Day Nov 20: No ADRS. Doing MVMCP.

Sat Nov 21: T-Rex (L) 11:00a
HoopDeeDoo (D) 5:00p

Sun Nov 22: Cali Grill (D) 8:55p (Wishes at 10:00)

Mon Nov 23: Ohana (D) 6:30p

Tues Nov 24: Les Chefs (L) 12:00p
Le Cellier (D) 7:15p

Wed Nov 25: Sci Fi (L) 11:30
(Fantasmic at 6:30p)
50's Prime Time (D) 7:45p

Nov 26: Thanksgiving Dinner at Chef Mickey's (D) 6:45p

Fri Nov 27: Princess Storybook Breakfast 9:25a
Teppan Edo (D) 7:10p

Sat Nov 28: Tusker House (BF) 8:05a
Yak n Yeti (D) 6:15p

I am seriously sooooo excited about some of these ressies that I have tried to get in the past and never could!!!! Le Cellier dinner and a pre-opening Tusker House breakfast especially!!! I even got the times or close to the times I wanted. I have been so happy about this all day :yay:.

The only ADRS I wanted that I did not get were a Mama Melrose Fantasmic Package (all gone by the time I called at 7:00 am), could not get anything at T-Rex for lunch on our departure day Nov 30 (so I made an ADR for lunch on the 21st but hoping to change that to the 30th), and I really wanted to do Ohana on Sunday Nov 22 about 6:30 ish to 7:30ish and then head over to MK evening extra magic hours, but since Ohana wasn't available I decided to do Cali Grill that night and just watch Wishes from Cali Grill instead and then head on over to MK for a few hours of EMH.

I have a few questions for you guys:

This is my first time at Cali Grill. I was trying to time it so we could see Wishes, which is listed at 10:00 on Nov 22. The two choices I had were 7:40 or 8:55pm. I was clueless as to which would be best if we want to watch the fireworks and then still make it to MK sometime shortly thereafter (giving the non-resort guest a bit of time to thin out after Wishes ends). I picked the 8:55 because I was afraid if we ate earlier and then had to wait around for the observation deck viewing, my 8 year old would get restless and tired of waiting. Any thoughts as to which ADR times are best for a 10:00 pm Wishes (should I have gone with 7:40?) and also any estimates on how long we will be there from checkin to end of meal?


Love love love this thread. Now that I've made my ADR's I can't wait til November 20th!!!!!!!

I Got EXACTLY what I wanted!!!!! It wasn't fun being up at 0300, but we will be eating well!

**Saturday Nov 21- 'Ohana for 6:40 dinner
**Sunday Nov 22- le Cellier for noon lunch
**Monday Nov 23- Narcoossee's for 6:35 dinner
**Tuesday Nov 24- 50s PTC for 11:15 lunch
**Wednesday Nov 25- Crystal Palace for 11:45 lunch
(Thursday Nov 26- Beaches and Cream! Not an ADR, but it's where we'll be)
**Friday Nov 27- Cape May Breakfast 9:05 (BB afterwards!)
Cape May Cafe dinner 6:25 (we're gonna be Cape May happy- I tried doing most of our resort meals on our non-park days- it worked out well)
**Saturday Nov 28- Whispering Canyon dinner 6:10. This is DS's 12th birthday! I am hoping for a really fun experience for him. We've eaten here many times, and love it.

We'll still be in the World for a couple more days, but no more ADRs. Which is fine! There are plenty of counter service places we love too.

I did just what you suggested! I didn't realize that option! Thanks so much! Originally, I was concerned about being at a certain part of the park at a certain time, but we are going to give it a try this trip, and see how it goes. We are in all of the parks 2 days, excl DS, but we usually do a TS in that park anyway. I think it will be a nice break for our weary legs each day! DH was thrilled! He didn't like my fuzzy math in trying to justify -- we are saving a little, but need to take in account the 3 missed meals. I was paying for the three TS meals, so we would have had 14 CS meals, and are now having 11 meals besides those three that were already planned, and we will have to take in account tips on the extra 4 sit downs we didn't have planned. I was already taking into account the tips on the 3 dinners, and also the entire Planet Hollywood meal on the first day at DD. We are also losing 28 snacks and our resort mugs.:rotfl: But, all in all, I am convinced it is a good idea for us. Thanks again!:flower3:

So, now I have:

Thurs, Nov 19 - Planet Hollywood / 6:45 dinner (had already)

Nov. 3 - Akershus (Princess Dinner 5:05pm)
Nov. 4 - Tony's Town Sq. (6pm)
Nov. 5 - Chef Mickey's (7:55pm)
Nov. 6 - Yak & Yeti's (3pm)
Nov. 7 - Spirit of Aloha (category 2, 5:15pm)
Nov. 8 - Hollywood & Vine (4:55 pm)
Nov. 9 - Cape May Cafe (9:10am)

I just switched a few times on mine - there was a 6:50pm opening at Akershus, so I grabbed that. Gives us time to do stuff we want, go around the WS, maybe see the concert and then AFTER dinner, grab a seat somewhere for Illuminations.

Also, my H&V res was from when I thought I had the F! preferred seating. Since I don't have it after moving our trip week, I changed the time to 2:20pm so that we can go to the character lunch (my DD loves Little Einsteins).

Then I switched Yak & Yeti to 5pm, this way we can see the parade! I hadn't even thought of that before!

Up at 4:45 this morning to makes these: :surfweb:

11/22 - Kona (breakfast)
Ohana (dinner) (it's never too much Polynesian!) :banana:

11/23 - Teappan Edo (lunch)
Le Cellier (dinner)

11/24 - Hollywood & Vine (breakfast)
Prime Time (lunch)

11/25 - CP (breakfast)
Ohana (dinner)


The only one I'm not happy with is my 8:25 Hollywood & Vine. We're only doing it for the extra boost it gives you at rope drop (so I've heard), so I'd like an earlier one. May actually drop this one if we can't get an earlier one. May also eventually drop our 8:05 CP too, as I hate to spend that much OOP for a breakfast! (and don't want the extra DDP to do it either).

One more early morning to make a Wishes cruise ressie and then I'm done!

I decided just not to go to bed until after I made my adr's at 3:00am this morning. But then, when I couldn't get my TG adr's I had to stay up until 4:00am to speak to someone, and I had my cell phone speaker on while I was on hold and I fell asleep. So the cm that picked up must have heard my sawing logs!!:rotfl:

I woke up at 7:30am, called back and got the rest of my adr's. I'm very happy I got everything I wanted. It's almost 5pm here and I'm dragging now :faint:, but no longer worried!!! It's over with and worth it.

I did just what you suggested! I didn't realize that option! Thanks so much! Originally, I was concerned about being at a certain part of the park at a certain time, but we are going to give it a try this trip, and see how it goes. We are in all of the parks 2 days, excl DS, but we usually do a TS in that park anyway. I think it will be a nice break for our weary legs each day! DH was thrilled! He didn't like my fuzzy math in trying to justify -- we are saving a little, but need to take in account the 3 missed meals. I was paying for the three TS meals, so we would have had 14 CS meals, and are now having 11 meals besides those three that were already planned, and we will have to take in account tips on the extra 4 sit downs we didn't have planned. I was already taking into account the tips on the 3 dinners, and also the entire Planet Hollywood meal on the first day at DD. We are also losing 28 snacks and our resort mugs.:rotfl: But, all in all, I am convinced it is a good idea for us. Thanks again!:flower3:

So, now I have:

Thurs, Nov 19 - Planet Hollywood / 6:45 dinner (had already)
Fri, Nov 20 - Chef Mickey / 6:30 dinner (had already)
Sat, Nov 21 - Coral Reef / 4:05 linner
Sun, Nov 22 - Mama Melrose / 3:50 linner, FDP (had already)
Mon, Nov 23 - Rose & Crown / 3:50 linner
Tues, Nov 24 - Tony's / 6:30 dinner
Wed, Nov 25 - Crystal Palace / 10:30 late breakfast (had already)
Thurs, Nov 26 - Tusker House / 11:30 lunch

I am soo glad that I could help you out!!! Makes me happy:cool1::cool1:

Are you using your 90+10 option for staying onsite?

princessmom29
08-25-2009, 02:01 PM
Are you using your 90+10 option for staying onsite?

Mnie is thursday as well. The 90+10 means that 90 days from your arrival date you can make ressies for that day plus the next ten. It doesn't mean that you get to make ressies 100 days from checkin. It would not change your first day to make ADR's. it would only mean you would have to call back daily after that if you are not staying onsite.

tsmack78
08-25-2009, 02:13 PM
Are you using your 90+10 option for staying onsite?

Yes that means that I check in on the 25th of Nov. so I can call Thursday and book starting the 25th plus 10 day from that date. Is that correct? I was wondering about hers b/c her ADR's start on the 27th of Nov. and run thorugh Dec. just wondering how she got them so soon. Thanks!

At 6am, :surfweb:I was on the computer and got almost everything we wanted as 1st choice, however...
Thanksgiving resies can't be booked at all online (had an idea of that thanks to the Dis!)

At 7am, when I called, the CM said they have to go through a different system to book holiday resies themselves. Also, I couldn't get 1900 Park Fare dinner with Cindy, Prince, step-sis/mom. DD was a little sad.

I tried to for that dinner 11/22-28, but no luck. I'll try back closer to our trip. The funny think was, Cindy's Royal Table was available! :laughing: I just put it in the computer as an after thought thinking it was a total shot in the dark. I don't know how many trips I spent trying to get into that place. The last time we were there during the 1st week in Dec (not even a popular time) and still only got in for lunch. That was our first time and the food was yucky. :sad2:

We'll give it another try this time. We hear breakfast is a little better. Who am I kidding though, when you've got a DD who's 5, she doesn't care what she's eating as long as its in the castle. princess:

We love the Candlelight Processional and usually book the dining package to ensure we get a seat at a performance. Beware, when I called yesterday, they told me it was going to cost 2 table services! I decided not to do it. Today I noticed DIS posted some info on this. I noticed that the cost for those dinners went up significantly too.

I'll just have to stand in line with all the other cheap-o's like myself. :)

Any decent ideas about where to try for thanksgiving. Need lunch and dinner. :(

Is Olivia's any good? Saw on last year's menu that they have Thanksgiving food there and not too many people have mentioned it.

HELP! :)

Ha! My DD11 cracks us all up by constantly asking - "What meal is this, lunch or dinner?" when we throw her off and don't eat 3 meals/day at the usual timeframes. That's when we started saying it, and it stuck.

I am soo glad that I could help you out!!! Makes me happy:cool1::cool1:

We are a GG of 15 people and I made all of our reservations this morning. Here's what we got:

Wed 11/25-Crystal Palace 10:25am breakfast
Thurs 11/26-Boma 5:25 dinner (wanted Ohanas...but nothing available:sad2:)
Fri 11/27-50's Prime Time 11:20 lunch
Sat 11/28-Chef Mickey's 5:20 dinner

Pretty happy with everything, considering how many people we have. I'm going to keep trying for Ohanas. We ate at Boma 2 years ago at Thanksgiving and it was great, but just wanted to try someplace different. I will say that I am pleasantly surprised that we were able to get CM after reading that so many others couldn't. Good luck to everyone!

Did ressises this morning. I got:

Nov 26- Boma Dinner
Nov 27- Le Cellier lunch
Nov 28- Princess breakfast
Les Chefs Dinner
Nov 29- Chef Mickey Lunch
Nov 30- Brown Derby Fantasmic
Dec 1- Ohana Dinner

We wanted Chef Mickey forthanksgiving, but knew the odds were slim. Wanted Mama Melrose fantasmic, but are just glad to have a package. Wanted Le Cellier for dinner but couldn't get one before 9:00 which doesn't work with a 5 year old. All in all I am pretty happy, and got everything else at pretty much the exact time we wanted.

ETA: I just got back online and was able to snag a 3:50 Le Cellier on Nov 28th. I think it will work out better. I was able to move my Les Chefs Dinner to Nov 27th without a problem. YEA!!!

When is your check in date? I see that your ADR's start on 11/27. Just wondering. Also I think if you call, you may get something for Thanksgiving Day. I can book my ADR's this Thursday. I am crossing my fingers for what I want or close to it. Send me some pixie dust! :wizard:

Check in date is 11/23.......I did wind up calling and getting LTT for Thanksgiving! I was so excited.

Also, for another commenter - I was booking based on 90+10 as we're staying on property.

I'm new to this ultra planning WDW-mode and you people are scaring the beejezus out of me about Thanksgiving food. :( We arrive on Thanksgiving, so my ADR day is Friday morning.

Any decent ideas about where to try for thanksgiving. Need lunch and dinner. :(

Is Olivia's any good? Saw on last year's menu that they have Thanksgiving food there and not too many people have mentioned it.

HELP! :)

After what I went through today the only thing I can advise you is to have more than one choice ready for Thanksgiving Dinner - I got my second choice(O'hanas) but I know people who got 3rd and 4th choices. Also it helps to call back - you would be surprised what can happen in a few minutes after you hang up (That's how I got 1900 for breakfast on T-day after I was told it was booked solid until Nov 30!)

I doesn't hurt to check back online either. That's how I picked up the 3:50 Le Cellier we ended up with. It wasn't there at 5:00am, but I got it about 8:00.

So is this going to be like pulling tickets with Ticketmaster??? Don't take the first pair offered to you b/c they are far from the best available, throw them back and keep trying????? I've gotten first row concert tickets doing that an hour into the sale.

Remember when you actually had to wait in line at a Ticketmaster retailer? I remember my brothers camping out all night for concert tickets. Maybe that's what Disney needs to do. Just how bad do you want b'fast in the castle? The campout line starts here.... :rotfl2:

This just greatly amused me. I just had a conversation with my sis about truly getting up at 5:45 am on Monday (the 31st) and were we really willing to sacrifice for our family to eat delish food at the World? I wonder how willing we would be if we had to get up at 5:45 am and stand in a freezing drizzle for the privilage of eating at Crystal Palace. How badly do you want a mickey shaped waffle, eh???? :rotfl:

It's like black Friday. How badly do you want that $59.00 Nintendo DS with two games? That Black & Decker $25.00 drill? That Le Cellier steak that's only 1 TS and is slightly better that Outback. :lmao:

I may smile the rest of the day imaging the line outside Epcot at 3 am.

I booked all online (except CP) this morning ready at 6 a.m. I called right at 7 a.m. to book the CP dinner. The only trouble I ran into was trying to book 1900 PF breakfast kept getting the high volume message so I just checked out the rest of the reservations in my cart and came back to that one and then I was able to book it. Here's the line up:
11/27 1900 PF 5:35 p
11/28 Coral Reef 12:50 p
11/29 CM 10:10 a
11/30 Sci-Fi 12:30 p
12/1 O'hana 5 p MVMCP
12/2 Jiko 5:35 p
12/3 Biergarten 5:45 p CP 8:15 p
12/4 1900 PF 10 a

I think I did pretty good. When I called for the CP package I asked about my Jiko at 5:35 p - I had 5 p in mind, but she said they don't open until 5:30 p so 5:35 p it is. Then we can head over to AK evening EMH afterwards.

Can't believe my 90 days finally arrived! :cool1:

Cape May Cafe b'fast
Crystal Palace dinner
Biergarten CP lunch package :santa:
1900 Park Fare dinner
Ohana Best Friends b'fast
Hoop Dee Doo Revue
Sci Fi dinner
Garden Grill dinner
California Grill dinner

Had to call to book Hoop Dee Doo Revue and Candlelight Processional dinner package. Call lasted more than 30 minutes! I'm really pleased with my dining reservations. Online reservations worked quite well. :yay:

Oh... I couldn't get the CP dinner package at Biergarten for the 2nd performance (NONE LEFT!). So eventually I had to settle for a lunch package and we will be watching the 1st performance.

Nov. 5 - Chef Mickey's (dinner)
Nov. 6 - Yak & Yeti's (lunch)
Nov. 7 - Spirit of Aloha
Nov. 8 - Hollywood & Vine (dinner)
Nov. 9 - Cape May Cafe (breakfast)


We had some changes to our ADRs :) We decided to pay for the luau OOP and have an extra TS credit, so we added Planet Hollywood on Nov. 2 for dinner. We switched Yak & Yeti's to dinner so we'd make the parade. We switched the H&V to lunch so our DD could see the Little Einsteins. AND we called today and extended our vacation by a day, so we got to add a TS. Decided to do Whispering Canyon to Nov. 9 and use a CS credit for breakfast the next morning before we leave.

I'm wondering how difficult it would be to convince DH to add one MORE day ;)
