This just in from my email inbox: "The most recent information we have suggests they will be closed from
November 3rd, 2012 through November 21st, 2012. Please be advised this
is subject to change without notice."

I would assume they will be calling those who have reservations in this time frame to notify them.

Big bummer! I won't get my pommes frites fix this time.

You don't *have* to, but you can if you want to guarantee a spot.

Our last trip we ate there about 3 times without reservations, but we're a party of 2 willing to eat at off-times and sit outside or in. We'd wait a few minutes but usually not too long. They really get you in and out quick. We'd feel like we took our time in there and be out in 45 mins. or so.

I spoke with someone at Disney dining yesterday and they stated right now they are taking no reservations for Nov 3-21 but that they are not cancelling ones made yet as they do not have the offical start date for the refurb. Lady I spoke to stated originally it was to be closed the 9-21 but then the manage of the place said they may close as early as the 3rd so disney dining decided to close reservations for the whole period till they get official dates. She kept my reservations for the 5th and stated should it need to be changed I will get a call.

This just in my inbox:

"The refurbishment of Cafe Orleans has been postponed until further
notice. They do not have any scheduled closures in November at this
time."

I am doing a happy dance!

I think I might cry if its actually closed 11/3-11/18. There are so many things there I wanted to try because I've never eaten there before and its got so many good reviews! Do they normally post the restaurant refubs somewhere on the DL website or is calling them the best way to keep up with that stuff?

I would just call Disney Dining and request a reservation. If they allow you to make a reservation, then no refurbishment is scheduled for that day!

They let me make a reservation for the 7th just two days ago. I think you are safe.
