Messed up on an ADR, should I try calling?
 
We're going March 1 - 9 and we had our schedule all set. Only a few TS meals, one of which is Le Cellier. I was pleased to be able to get it for dinner when I did it online a month or so ago. Then I realized that Flower and Garden starts on March 6th and both of our planned Epcot days are before that. So I want to switch one of our Epcot days but I can't get an ADR at Le Cellier on either of the days we'd like to be at Epcot.:( Do you think I'd have a better chance if I called?

Honestly no, you dont have a better chance at calling. In fact, i'd suggest you keep looking online for that hard to get ADR. by checking several times a day, i've always gotten ADRs I wanted, even the hard-to-get ones! Good luck! :)

Second this.

I checked every day, once in the morning and once at night for Ohanna and finally snagged one.

You've still got over a month for someone to cancel. Do you have hoppers?

Yes, we do have hoppers so if I can't get the ADR we'll possibly just hop over to Epcot on one of the Flower and Garden days instead.

That's easy for me to do too. ;) Calling has to wait until I get home.

As others have said, there does not seem to be an advantage to calling over online (i.e., the call center does not have access to additional ADR times). I would just keep checking several times a day online to see if something comes up. I've had pretty good luck snagging semi-last minute ADRs for most venues (including Le Cellier). You just have to be willing to be flexible (i.e., eat at an odd time).

Yes, I would keep checking online multiple times a day. Also because Le Cellier now has the same menu all day long and is a signature all day you might have a better chance trying for lunch res. Some people will cancel lunch when they discover the lunch menu is now the same as the sig dinner menu.

You could always go to the park when it first opens that day also. You may be able to get them that way as a walk up.

Le Cellier is not so difficult to get anymore. Keep watching for a cancellation.
