I thought that too, but when I called to make mine in Dec, I had planned on calling everyday but the CM I talked to made them all for me at once. That saved me 8 mornings of calling. So I think just call on your first day, then ask. the worst they can say is NO and then you just have to call daily.

heres some pixie dust hoping you can get lucky!

TIA
I made all of mine at the 180+10 day mark. I think it just depends on the CM you talk to. Mine was really really helpful in my selection process.

I agree. Sometimes it may depend on the CM...I guess I got lucky the first time, too. I have heard that you can make all your ADR's at the 180 mark. It all depends on your first day of arrival. Good luck

WooHoo Monday is the day. We're making more ADR's than we ever have in the past. Usually we make 2 ADR's for an entire week but this time we're going for 5.

I'll report back either way. Thanks.

I agree. When I called my first day to make ADRs for our upcoming trip, the CM would only allow me to make reservations for 180 days out. The next day when I called, I had intended to only make the one ADR again. When the CM asked if there was anything else, I said "not today, I will have to call again tomorrow". She offered to check on the reservations for me. She said that the system was allowing her to make the ADRs for further out so she would be happy to make the rest of them for me.
So, again, I have had CMs tell me No and others who made the reservations 180+10 for me. Just ask, the worse they can do is say No.

Somebody correct me if I am wrong. Our son slept on this pull out and I believe it is a twin since the standard rooms sleep five.

Mangino's

Does anyone know if you can order room service from this restaurant?
How are the desserts?

There is a special room service menu. I don't have a copy, because the menu was on the resort tv channel. I remember various sandwiches, pizza, chicken, seafood and beef entrees, pasta, salads, and breakfast items. You could ask if room service will deliver something from Mangino's menu. The worst that can happen is they'll say no.

Sorry, I didn't try any of the desserts, except the ice cream my kids got with their meals. It was good.

Price: $6-7 plus $2.50 per lunch for them to pack it up for you.

Choices of sandwiches: ham and cheese, italian, liverwurst, roast beef, roasted chicken breast, pb and j (only costs $3.50 I believe). They may have more types of sandwiches but these were the ones listed to me.

They provide lettuce, tomato, mustard, mayo, etc.

It's better to order the night before but they can pack them in the morning though the wait might be longer.

I thought you could not take food inside Disney?

Apparently its quite common for people to pack their own picnic lunches in backpacks and take them inside all of the time. The security at the gate usually looks the other way. This leads me to believe that even the CM's realize that the food is way to expensive there!

The only thing I have seen security dispose of was beer. Not allowed to bring that in but food was not a problem.
