Would the CM's allow my family to go in and look around, but not eat? We are going in Nov. and if the lunch lines are really long, I wouldn't want to wait in them, but it might be fun to just look around the restaurant.

Also, does anyone have recent experience with the lunch lines? At what time do they start to build? If we get there at 11am for lunch will there already be a long line?

I called exactly 180 days out at 6am central time, and got reservations for the exact day and time I wanted. I hope it was totally worth getting up at the crack of dawn for...Keeping my fingers crossed.

I had several times to choose from when I just did my adrs this week, and around that date there are still times when I search. I think if you book on or around your 180 date you should be fine.

Get a FP for lunch if you can. We had one and got there at 1105. We were able to go right in and order and had our food within 5 minutes. The line at that time was an hour wait. We finished our lunch at 1145 and by that time, the CMs were telling people at the end of the line that it was an hour and a half wait.

I was able to snag a dinner reservation early this past January, but I booked the second reservations opened up (which I think was like 5 AM pacific time ). I would just keep checking because you never know when something will pop up. It was one of the highlights of my trip for me.

The only way to see inside the castle is to eat there.
