Good luck getting all of the ADRs you want! Are you trying to get Le Cellier for lunch or dinner? I would think dinner would be the only one you might not get, but fingers crossed for you!

Thanks Jackie! I have made about 3 different lists! I can't believed how stressed I have been about this!

LeCellier was available just don't think you can get the time you want the first day probably. I would know what parks you want and fit the meals in, I think you will be on the phone making the resies for a while, but will get what you want too!
That is great to know about the breakfast ressies! I have been stalking the ADR threads! Thanks for your help!

I don't think you will have a problem getting your ADR's, even Le Cellier was not a problem. I even called back 3 weeks later and was able to get Le Cellier on a Sunday during F&G for and early dinner. The weather has been great here too in the 70's, glad to hear you are enjoying it. Usually it warms up here in April and by May we can swim. Looking forward to hearing about your park plans and ADR's .

Hi there! I just made my call yesterday, it wasn't SO bad, but well, it was more challenging than I expected... I put a play-by-play and a few strategies from my experience on my PTR, the last post... take a look? I did get what I wanted Mostly, dinner ADRs are definitely the hardest... I discovered that San Angels will NOT be open the time we are there in June, I must have missed that b/c it was my back up in one case and the CM told me that.
Anyway, I stressed the past three days, now that it is over I don't wish that on anyone!! but I agree with all the PP on your PTR, wishing you pixie dust and good luck on the call!!!

Big Day Tommorow!

Tommorow is the big day.......ADR'S! !

It has already been an eventful weekend! Matthew celebrated his birthday yesterday with some friends at the movies! We saw Race to Witch Mountain. The boys LOVED it but Bryan and I thought it was just OK! I threw my back out this morning..... I am in alot of pain BUT Bryan took the boys out for the day, I just popped some Advil and made my lunch and now I am on the couch with my laptop, my lunch and the heating pad just making my final list for tomorrow!!

I will be sure to post once I get off the phone with Disney Dining!

The ressie wish list includes...

6 breakfast ADR'S
7 lunch ADR'S and
10 dinner ADR'S

after the first 10 days are made I will have to call back each of the next 5 mornings to add ressies for the final days of our trip!!!!

Have a GREAT weekend!

Diane

Diane, I hope all goes well with your ADR's, I will be paying extra special attention now because just one hour ago, I booked,

9 DAYS AND 8 NIGHTS IN JULY!!!!!!


I can't believe I just did it but I took advantage of the buy 4 get 3 deal and it was super cheap to stay in a value.. food, tickets room, transfers,etc.. $2400 with insurance.. (just in case.) My daughter was going down with a friend for a diabetic convention that week and I wanted to take my son so I booked it. After last summers trip when Jenna hurt her knee I felt guilty not taking Lucas since I feel he kinda missed out on some stuff pushing her around in that wheelchair! My husband gave me the thumbs up so (without him of course! )

Can't wait to hear how you do with the new system. Good Luck!
Dana
