View Full Version : CP Dinner Package Update thread - 8/20- THEY ARE AVAILALBE!

08-14-2002, 10:02 AM
8/14 - 7:15am CDT. Not available yet
8/16 - nothing yet. CM says should be out in the next 2 weeks
8/17 - nothing yet. CM put me on hold today to talk with someone - who I don't know - and came back and said, "Ma'am, unfortunately we don't have those ready yet, but we expect them to be available anytime." I asked, "Anytime today?" She said, " No, in the next few days." So we'll see...
8/18 - not available yet. This CM had no idea when but just put me on hold to see when it might be available...she's back and she said she called the Dining Help Line and these people have no clue either. Amazing at the lack of information Disney shares.
8/19 - not yet. CM says no release date available yet either. (sigh)
8/20 - packages are out, but no speaker lists are available yet.. yeah!

08-14-2002, 07:25 PM

just got off the phone w/dining(thursday morn early) and still no packages:p

08-15-2002, 09:27 AM

I called also, this CM said mid- September.

Um, ok.

08-15-2002, 08:12 PM
Called and CM said not available yet. Supposedly they are trying to nail down narrators. CM said should be available soon. Mid-September seems odd.

08-16-2002, 06:56 AM
I cannot wait for CP. We'll be at Disney from 12-6 to the 15th. I'm hoping we'll have a couple of choices for narrators.


08-16-2002, 08:43 AM
8/16 - nothing yet. Today's CM said should be out in the next 2 weeks.

08-16-2002, 09:24 AM
Thankd z,
I was going to call this morning but thought I would check the boards first. You called already and it is only 8am here! Keep checking!


08-16-2002, 09:30 AM
I also called this morning and was told the computer says "pending".

08-17-2002, 08:36 AM
bumping...CM says in the next few days...read updated thread starting post for more info.

08-18-2002, 08:18 AM
bumping - nothing yet

Hi! I just found this thread. I've been calling for CP every morning since 8/13. I've gotten lots of responses depending on CM, but the consensus seems to be that it could be any time now, noone knows when, it'll just appear on their screens one morning. They all agreed that it would be entered in overnight, so if it's not there first thing in the morning it won't be there until the next day. One very kind CM told me they'd been given a handout listing dates but nothing else on 8/13, and they usually get those within a week of event becoming available. Another CM told me the delay was in lining up the guest narrators, which makes sense to me. Anyway, I'll keep trying every morning until it's there. Glad to have some company while I wait!


08-19-2002, 08:12 AM
bumping - nothing yet

08-19-2002, 05:00 PM
I just called to book a different PS and the CM told me to check back "next month" regarding the CP dinner packages. This wait seems to be getting longer and longer!

08-19-2002, 06:45 PM
I sent you a private message. Did you get it??

08-19-2002, 09:11 PM
Thanks for the ongoing updates!

08-19-2002, 11:08 PM
They're out as of 5 pm today. No news on the guest stars yet though.

08-20-2002, 06:48 AM
They're out as in you can book the package?

08-20-2002, 06:59 AM

08-20-2002, 07:28 AM
:D :D :D Thanks for the great timely info!!!! Booked them this morning for Christmas Eve! Will be our first time ever, I am soooo excited!!!!!

08-20-2002, 08:18 AM
Who do I call, CRO or Disney Dining ??

08-20-2002, 08:20 AM
They are out! I can tell you that Restaurant Marrakesh is in Tier 2 and that prices are $32.99 for an adult and $10.99 for kids which I believe is the same as last year.

08-20-2002, 08:34 AM
Thanks to those that kept updating! I got mine for Christmas Day...just what we wanted! One question though. The CM said our dinner time ( Le Cellier ) is tied to our PS time ( 8:15), but couldn't tell me the dining time. Does anyone know what the dining time would be? Thanks! Oh btw..the 3rd tier was $39.99. They charge you at time of reservation but it is refundable up to 48 hrs in advance.

08-20-2002, 08:58 AM
Ok, I couldn't wait because that didn't sound right to me, so I called back and here's my first complaint of the day!! CM's that don't know what they're doing! So, it cost me another long distance call to straighten it out. Heads up....if you don't get 2 confirmation numbers you don't have dinner reservations. Apparently my first CM didn't know what she was doing and yes you do book your dinner time at the same time. It is "tied" to the package in that there are certain blocks of time that you have to choose from, but the exact time is not pre-determined. Oh well, at least it's straight now, but it sure is awful early here to be getting angry!

08-20-2002, 09:01 AM
I just got my package for Le Cellier and the 8:15 show. They have pre-determined times for dining based on the show you select. My time is 4:50 pm because we have 14 in our party. You should get the exact time for dinner.

08-20-2002, 09:32 AM
First call: CM said that the dining confirmation number was the same as the CP package confirmation number. I called back to have another CM verify this and he said that was correct and checked and said that yes, my dining reservation was in the computer. So, is there only one confirmation number this year ?

08-20-2002, 09:42 AM
Have they indicated whether or not the "after 4:00 admission package" will be available this year?

08-20-2002, 09:44 AM
Called and CM advised that Garden Grille was open for bookings for the 11/29 6:45 show. Can't explain why (since it is available for the early and late shows) but suggested I call back in a few days when the glitch will surely be worked out. In the interim, made reservations at Biergarten so I could at least hold the show (though there's not a thing there that our kids will eat).

CM said there are 2 reservation numbers, but system says to only give us one of them since they are tied together.

08-20-2002, 09:54 AM
So, is there only one confirmation number this year ?

Yikes! Does Disney ever give anyone the same story twice? As I said in my earlier post, my first cm thought she didn't have to even book a time for dinner. This CM took my charge card and even gave me the total charge. My 2nd call corrected this, but I definitely have 2 confirmation numbers and was told I had to have 2, one for dinner and one for the CP. The 2nd CM even took a look at my reservation and said, "No, she didn't book a reservation for dinner. I sure am glad you called back because you would not have had a place to eat on Christmas Day! You did have priority seating for the CP though." So, were they going to charge me $127.00 for priority seating??? I have no idea what is really right, I may well have 2 ressies now for the CP package:confused: Anyone have a definitive answer? Please tell me my 2nd CM was right, I'm going to have to take out a loan just to pay the phone bill!

Debby7...are you saying that last year you did need 2 confirmation numbers?

08-20-2002, 09:55 AM
The After 4 package is not being offered I was told.

08-20-2002, 10:06 AM
In the past six years, I have always had separate confirmation numbers , one for the package , one for the dining ps. I do believe what Piglette was told, there are probably two numbers in the computer, we are being given the package number, which is linked to the dinner reservation number. As I said, I called back to check and the 2nd Cm said that my dinner reservation was in the system.

08-20-2002, 10:09 AM
Here's what I got:

No after 4 admission option

No mention of shopping discount--I asked and CM said it didn't say anything about that on her info

Got one confirmation number which hopefully is for 5 pm dinner at Chefs de France for 815 CP on 12/9---CM said no later times available. I had asked for 645 show first and was told dinner time would be something like 830--too late for us.

08-20-2002, 10:25 AM
We have 5:30 @ Marrekesh, 8:15 show for December 8th. One confirmation number.CM didn't really offer much information , didn't know if we could pick them up at our resort or if it was only at the location in EPCOT., He didn't mention shopping discount either. Hopefully as they book more of these ressies, they will be more sure of what they are doing.

08-20-2002, 10:27 AM
When I called for info this morning, I was told it does include the 15% merchandise discount at Epcot. :D

08-20-2002, 10:31 AM
Debby 7,
I was told you could pick up tickets 7 day prior at any property resort or at Epcot.

08-20-2002, 10:34 AM
Well I wanted LeCellier - but it's all booked!!! So we got Japan for Christmas Eve -

08-20-2002, 10:38 AM
I was told I could pick what time I wanted to have dinner and then they would let me know which CP showing I would go to. I got to PS numbers. And I was told I could pick tickets up 7 days in advance, at Epcot or my hotel guest relations, I was told nothing about the 15%(but I didn't ask)

I am very happy as it turned out I got exactly what I wanted 6:45 CP...8:15 Dinner at Teppanyaki, 12/21/02, 6 adults.

Thanks zulaya for keeping the post updated!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


08-20-2002, 11:01 AM
Got 12/24 8:15 and 5:30 PS at alfredo's. She said that they were getting lots of calls and reading all the info on it yesterday. She couldn't find the 15% discount noted anywhere in her paperwork though????

I also received 1 confirmation #. She said we would get badges at the restaurant for the show.

08-20-2002, 11:33 AM
Just got off the phone. Thank goodness I was on the DC 800 number line because I was on the phone for over 30 minutes!! Poor CM had no idea what he was doing. At first he gave me only one reservation number for the CP seating, didn't seem to think I needed a separate PS for San Angel. I politely persisted, he put me on hold at least 3 times, maybe 4, I'm not sure.

I finally ended up with 5:00 showing on Dec 23 (what I wanted) and dinner at 8pm. I wanted 7:30 dinner, but earliest was 8pm. Which tells me this thing is really selling out, because we aren't within the 120 day PS time frame yet. So all those other ressies are for CP people! Already!!

I had thought that my 11 y/o would fall under the child's ressie, but CM said it was 3-9. I know that's true for park tickets but I thought for dining he'd still be considered a child until he turns 12. Does anyone know?

According to the info on WDWIG, last year the ages for children's dinner packages was 3 -11. I'd call back and check. It's hard to believe that they changed the ages for this. Everything else seems pretty much the same as last year to me, including the prices.


08-20-2002, 11:56 AM
Thanks, Carol. I called back, and the first CM was wrong, my son should've been charged the child rate. Now get this...they couldn't change it for me, all CP changes have to go through WDW group dining. And WDW group dining was so busy the CM had to take my number and said they'd call me back. That's okay, I've got my ressies, I have 4 months to get the charges straightened out.

Like I said, thank goodness for the DC 800 line. I think I've paid for the card just today in long distance savings! ;)


08-20-2002, 11:57 AM
I was told that child's dining prices were for under 12. Call back and get it fixed.

I had to call back and get mine fixed because although they have the PS time and place correct - I booked Marrakesh (Tier 2 pricing) - they charged me for Alfredo's which is Tier 3 pricing. So everyone double check your totals. Prices are plus 15% gratuity. My bill was $30+ less after the correction.

08-20-2002, 12:04 PM
The prices should include the gratuity, but NOT the 6% tax.

08-20-2002, 12:17 PM
I got my ressies for Dec24 at Le Cellier this morning. My total charges to credit card included 6% tax. I was given 1 conf. # and told I could pick tickets up 7 days in advance at redort guest services or at Epcot.

08-20-2002, 12:26 PM
I just got off the phone with Dining and was able to secure a ressie for Christmas Eve - 8:15 show with dinner at Le Cellier at 5:00. I am so excited - we've done the CP before but we've never been to the 'World' for Christmas and I just know seeing the CP on Christmas Eve will be so special.

Thanks to everyone for keeping all of us posted on the availibility, etc.

Good luck to all!!!

08-20-2002, 12:29 PM
Thanks everyone for your help! Just got off the phone with Disney (again!) and they fixed it so that my 11 y/o now has a child ressie.


08-20-2002, 12:38 PM
Got my ressies for Dec. 2nd at 8:15, with a 5:30 PS at Alfredo's. I only got 1 conf. #. CM couldn't find anything about 15% discount.

Gosh, what a SLOW process! I must have been on the phone with her for atleast 20 mins. She kept putting me on hold. I couldn't tell if she was new or if it was the computers.

Anyhow, it's done. Now, we just wait for the narrators. The 1st CM told me that the list usually doesn't come out unitl October or November? Is this true???

08-20-2002, 12:41 PM
yay. i got mine this morning. 5:30 dinner at Teppanyaki. 8:15 CP show. for 6 people. only got one confirmation number though. was charged the full amount plus 6% on my credit card. hope we only need that one confirm #!!!

08-20-2002, 12:52 PM
Just made my call to Disney Dining. The prices quoted: $26.99/$32.99/$39.99 - are before the 6% tax is added, but you will be charged the full amount when you make your PS. I specifically asked about free parking and merchandise discount, and the CM had to look for that info. He confirmed that those are included this year. :D I was given ONE confirmation number, so I asked about a number for the show and one for dinner. He said their computers show 2 numbers - but they are supposed to give out only one number so as not to confuse the person who issues the badges!

08-20-2002, 01:23 PM
Okay, according to my calculations a 32.99 dinner with the 15% gratuity is supposed to be a total of 37.94 per person. 10.99 child's dinneri s supposed to be 12.64. With 4 adults and 2 children, I should have been charged 177.03. I was charged 160 something. I wonder if they did charge me the tax and not the gratuity now? Weird. $163.18 is what they charged me and that's with the 6% tax NOT the gratuity. I think someone messed up the software program on this one.

08-20-2002, 01:33 PM
The gratuity is included in the price of $32.99, and has been in previous years, also. The tax of 6% is added to that.

08-20-2002, 01:34 PM

I was charged $138.99 the first time for 4 adults, and $116.56 the second time for 3 adults and 1 child. When I calculated this, it was the ticket price plus 6% tax, no 15% gratuity. I'm just wondering what exactly is going to show up on my credit card bill!:confused:


08-20-2002, 01:36 PM
I don't know why Disney Dining doesn't just quote the all-inclusive price!

08-20-2002, 01:39 PM
Hi! Thanks everyone for posting. I was able to secure the CP at 8:15 and dinner at Chef de France at 5:00pm. CM was going to give me the 5:50 PS but I asked for the earliest. Wanted earlier dinner so we do not have to rush through it. It sounded like they are not fully booked at Chef's yet.

I was given 2 confirmations numbers. There will be free parking and 15% discount. We can pick up tickets/badges 7 days in advance in Epcot Guest Relations.

08-20-2002, 01:39 PM
I see one person did this but that's all. I thought the 6:45 show (or whatever it is, I'm all flustered now) and then dinner after would be nice. Any opinions?

08-20-2002, 01:40 PM

Amen to that one!

08-20-2002, 01:46 PM
I was told the prices quoted include 15% gratuity but no taxes.
Taxes is added on and is included in the final total charged to your credit card.

For us, our final total was $108.

For 2 adults and 2 children, our bill came out to be
$39.99 + $39.99 + $10.99 + $10.99 = 101.96.
Add 6% tax = $108 and this is the total price that will be
charged to my credit card.

08-20-2002, 01:49 PM
Montessori - I just reserved the 6:45 show with dinner at Marrakesh at 8:00. Last year we ate first, then went to the last show. All I care about this year is that it is DARK when the show starts, and it will be for the 6:45 show.

The advantage to eating afterwards is that you won't be rushed. I read accounts from last year of people practically gulping their food to make it to the show on time.

08-20-2002, 02:05 PM
I'm glad to hear you feel that way. I feel the same. I just called and got the 6:45 show and 8:00 at Le Cellier, Christmas Day. They act like there is not really enough time to get over to Canada by 8:00 but I think there is.
I think it's discouraging that everyone is getting a different story from the CM's. For me it was...8:00 reservations at Le Cellier. What tier is that? The TOTAL price, including tax and tip was $39.99 per person. I asked if she was positive that was the total and she said yes.
I got one confirmation number.
I don't like all this scurrying about to get a reservation! If I didn't have other people to worry about, my husband and I would just wing it. Next year.
Is there an official site explaining what the deal is supposed to be with this package?

08-20-2002, 02:08 PM
Just FYI, just becasue you make the Ps for after the show, doesn't mean you can get there in time nor does it mean you get seated. In 2000, we did the 5pm show and had 6:30 PS for Le Cellier. We made it to the check in stand at 6:25. It is a long walk around the showcase from where the CP is and the crowds are what make it difficult. We also had to wait over 30 minutes to even get seated! So just don't think it's going to be a walk in the park becasue you are eating after.

08-20-2002, 02:16 PM
Thanks for the warning. http://www.uniquehardware.co.uk/server-smilies/otn/confused/shrug03.gif

08-20-2002, 02:23 PM
The fact that you often have to wait for your PS time is why I think eating AFTER the show is a good idea. Le Cellier is Tier 3 - $39.99 plus 6% tax. You'll probably get charged the correct amount on your credit card bill!

08-20-2002, 02:30 PM
THANK YOU--THANK YOU to everyone who kept updating this thread!! I got our "ressies" at LeCellier for 4:40pm on Christmas Eve with seating for the 8:15 show. I was told that the $39.99 price included the gratuity and that tax would then be added on for the credit card. Like most of you, I only received one reservation number. I was also told we could pick up the tickets 7 days in advance at our resort. There was no mention of the 15% discount and I forgot to ask.

08-20-2002, 02:31 PM
My goodness Disney is certainly making this as complicated as possible, or maybe I'm just really dense! I understand this is the first day for making reservations, but you can't wait for them to work the kinks out, they'll be booked up. I have reservations for 3 adults so let me see if I have this right yet. When the CM quoted me $39.99 per person that was including the tip and not including the tax, correct? Then when she quoted me $127.17 as a total to be charged to my card, she was including the tax? I hope that's right, it'll be less than I thought. I thought the tax was going to be added on to the $127.17, but when I actually did the math it didn't add up. I was given 2 numbers. One number during the first call when the CM didn't think she was supposed to actually assign me a dining time and a 2nd number when I called back to straighten it out. It's reasonable to assume that ordinarily you would only be given one number but perhaps because of the mess up I was just given both.

08-20-2002, 02:33 PM
I just made my package ressie for Marrakesh at 5:30 on December 13th, for the show at 8:15pm. I was also given just one confirmation number. In another example of CM's telling different people, different things, I was told the price included both gratuity and tax. In addition, she told me that it included a 15% discount on merchandise that day. Oh well, guess we will just have to wait and see.

Good luck to everyone getting the times they would like! :)


Barb A.
08-20-2002, 02:34 PM
Just an FYI, when I figured out my total it includes the price plus 6% tax. No gratuity was added.

08-20-2002, 02:41 PM
Got my ressie this am at 7am! Christmas Eve, 5:10 dinner, LeCellier and 8:15 show. Looks like there will be lots of us eating at LeCellier at the same time. We should wear our green ribbons! My cm was great; has been doing this for 15 years. She told me that yes, 15% off merch., need Epcot admission, even after 4, gave me two confirmation numbers, asked which place I wanted to pick up my ticket, hotel or entrance, re-checked her computer to make sure she hadn't missed anything, then after we hung up she called back to verify my cc again. She also said that they had NO narrators lined up yet. That's ok, I am sure we will enjoy whomever. (PS, her name was Lynn)


08-20-2002, 02:56 PM
If I were you, I would call CRO back and have them double check your ressie. Here is what just happenend to me: As I was quite excited regarding going to Disney for the first time in December, I really didn't pay close attention to the total CRO gave me for my CP package. Once I started trying to figure if gratuity and taxes were indeed included, it just wasn't adding up. I called CRO back, and they brought up my reservation for Alfredo's, when I had originally booked Marrakesh!!! The CM apologized, and said she knows what happenend. Without getting too technical, the CM has to book your restaurant choice on two screens, well the CM told me that many have been accidentally booking them on only one screen, and the other screen gets left untouched, which just so happens to always default to Alfredo's.

Bottom line, check the math, and if it isn't adding up, call them and double check your reservation!!

Hope no one else has this problem.


08-20-2002, 04:03 PM
My figures also do not include gratuity....we will be adding that separately. Let's make sure the waitstaff is compensated for their work.:D

08-20-2002, 04:13 PM
We got PS for 5:10 at Chefs de France for the 6:45 show on 12/12. Will this give us enough time to eat and make the show? I was told that 5:10 was the first seating for the evening, and my kids would not make it through a late dinner. DD 1.5years would be just too tired.

08-20-2002, 04:17 PM
I would want more time to enjoy the meal, especially in case the retaurant is running a bit behind, which often happens at CP time.

08-20-2002, 04:20 PM
As was recommended on the boards I called back to double check everything. All my PS's were correct. I double checked the prices for everything and this is what I was told. The price you are quoted per person(i.e. Tier 3 = $39.99/person) includes all food and gratuity. The grand total that is charged to your Credit Card when you book includes food, gratuity and tax. When you go to the restaurant you will only have to pay for beverages.:p

I think you will be fine. Since 5:10 is the first seating, the restaurant shouldn't be "running behind". I usually allow about an hour for dinner. Even if it takes 75 miinutes, you'll still have time to walk over to the theater. You won't have time to dawdle along the way, though! I'd recommend you try to get to the theater by 6:30 if you can. They usually start letting in the standby guests about 15 minutes before the scheduled start of the show.

08-20-2002, 04:52 PM
Thanks for keeping this thread updated every day. We only have one chance to see the show on 11/29 and I got the 5:00 pm show with 6:40 seating at Le Cellier.:D

08-20-2002, 05:07 PM
I just called to double check about the gratuity being included and was told that tax was included but not gratuity. This doesn't sound right. I am glad I did confirm my reservation because they had dinner at 6:00 instead of 6:40 after the 5:00 show but she quickly corrected this.

Brave Little Tailor
08-20-2002, 05:28 PM
I called this morning. We are going to eat at Le Cellier at 5 and see the show at 8:15 on Dec. 9. The CM did give me two numbers - one for dinner and one for the show. This is our first time to go during the Christmas season! Yipee!!:Pinkbounc

I think I will call just to confirm everything in the morning:) Ami

Is this a little scary or what? :eek:

Sound like so many people have had problems. I've already made 2 calls today and it looks like I'll be making a 3rd just to make sure everything is the way I expect it to be. Hopefully this isn't a bad sign!

Jiminy Christmas...I just spent an hour on the phone trying to make the CP ressie. :rolleyes: After 30 minutes with the first cm, I think she gave up and hung up on me. She knew NOTHING. She tried to tell me the ressies could not be booked yet, she told me wrong info about the restaurants, she couldn't answer ANY question without putting me on hold for several minutes. I called back and got a more personable CM the 2nd time, but not much more help. I got the ressies but gee whiz wasn't there a memo on this?

I called this morning and got a good CM but she didn't explain everything like they have in the past. I got 4:30 dinner at Alfredos for the 6:45 show. This is what we did in 2000 and it worked out fine. I did get 2 PS #s at first she charged me for my DS11 as a child but I had her switch it to an adult because I know he's going to order off of the Adult menu and I don't want any problems once I am there. My total came to $138.80 for 3 Adults and 1 child

My DH booked our CP today for December 3. We were given two confirmation numbers, one for the dinner and one for the show.

One thing we were told that I haven't seen mentioned is that the CP is not offered on December 1 at all and the 5:00 show on December 2nd was also not offered. It figures since 12/1 was the day we actually wanted...:(

For the price questions... The 39.99 (LeCellier) includes gratuity, but not tax. The overall price they quoted does include tax. Ours came to 2*39.99*1.06 = $84.78.

However, I definitely will confirm everything again after hearing about all of the confusion.

Thanks to everyone for keeping us informed!

We called this evening...the CM didn't know much about how to book the CP package...but she sought help and everything took 10min. We did get 2 confirmation #s...one for the CP and one for our PS at Restaurant Marrakesh...dinner at 5:30, show at 8:15 Dec. 11. We were told to pick up our tickets at our resort (AKL) Guest Services. Our price=$69.94 for 2 adults...includes 15% gratuity, does not include tax. Considering the CM admitted that she hadn't booked a CP package before...she was great...she put us on hold to confirm everything with someone else.

When I booked mine for 12/6, 8:15 show w/5:20 dinner at LeCellier I got cm right away, but he told me that it was all new way for them to book this year. I think that's what's taking them so long. I have not called back to verify, but he re-confirmed the ressie twice and really took his time (15-20 min) because he told me he didn't want to make error. He was really great! He went through all info regarding pick up of pkg, what price included, and that cc was being charged now, & cancellation policy. After hearing all the errors made, I think I'll call later and double check.

I am so excited and relieved. I really wanted to do this show on Xmas Eve and was worried that I would not be able to get my ps at the time/restaurant/show I wanted. I just booked the 8:15pm show w/dinner at Chefs de France at 5pm. One less thing to worry about now!! I can't wait. This is our first ever trip during the holidays. I too was only given one confirmation number, and the person I spoke with seemed to know what they were doing. Only took a little more than 5 min and I got through on the phone right away at 9am.

I just confirmed our 12/16 package....it's exactly the way that we wanted it to be. Dinner at LaCellier at 5 p.m. and CP at 8:15. I specifically asked about the 2 confirmation number and the CM said we don't really need the one for the dinner but offered to give it to me. Of course, I took it. I'd rather have too much information that not enough!:)
