I would have a few scenarios worked out, just in case, but that is me. I just have tied things to specific days, so I don't want to move park days if I can avoid it... When I called Disney Dining the CM was helpful. She said start with the most popular dining selections... Otherwise known as "Le Cellier" and "Chefs" and "Cali" and "Ohana" She listened to my selections and kept saying "yes" to popular and "oh, yes -- be sure to ask for those first" and other not at all reassuring type comments... She said start with most popular, give prefered time (they look up and down) and then go to the next one. I am going to ask for the restaurant for the right day, and see the times, then go to the back up day, before I go to the next restaurant... I think most people go day by day. who know what will work. I still have some time to get this right in my head!

The ADR VIGIL



Okay, if my grandmother was here she would say "Don't worry dear, I'll light a candle for you"...

I hope I make it through this evening without totally changing everything because I finally signed up for TGM, and the first thing I see is that my special June 18th Bday fun is a "STOP -- do not pass go, do not collect $200" day, which translates to a "STOP -- do not pass through the Magic Kingdom Gate, do not collect fastpasses, turn and run away as fast as you can because the crowds will eat you" kind of day...

Of course, I exaggerate. But STILL!

I really freaked myself out with TGM when I signed up a few weeks before my September trip. Take what he says with a grain of salt and be prepared for crowds. You will enjoy your Birthday fun, I am sure of it!

Now you have me wondering if I should sign up for TGM -- I looked at his website today and it seems right up my alley with all sorts of compulsive planning...

Happy ADR day!

Just want to send

your way!

I hope you get everything you want at the times you want! We go camping Thursday, so don't know if I'll get to see the results before we leave...I wouldn't freak out about the TGM crowd stuff. Even the UG will say that a well thought out touring plan is more important than which park on which day. You have good plans. I wouldn't worry about it.

I hope you sleep well tonight and that your hold time is very very small.

Adr Day Arrives!

So today was ADR day. This post is just a play-by-play on what the call was like, and how it turned out… I will post my list and itinerary tonight.

So I was up with coffee and two phones in hand well before 7:00 am. I started dialing both my cell and home line seconds before 7:00, immediately made it into the system, and was on the phone with a CM seconds into the call… This was a good first start, I thought, it boded well for a short call… THEN the CM asked me for my Confirmation # (resort confirmation #) WOULD you believe that I didn’t have it with the ADR worksheet?!! I RAN upstairs grabbed the # out of my binder, and then she cleared me to started my ADR requests. I started with Le Cellier and Chefs de France for dinner on the 17th. “NO availability,” was her reply. Okay, I didn’t fret, and I asked her to check the 20th for both as well, “NO availability,” was her response. I started to get this knot in my stomach about now… I changed tactics, dropped these choices, and went to the 18th. If you have read along you may know that the 18th is my big Birthday extravaganza day for DH. I asked for Cali Grill. “NO availability” I asked for Narcoossee’s as my back up and they had it. So I took it and we moved on… From there things started to look a little better. Had to flip a few restaurants but I already had two days for each “choice” So I was prepared for that. I then went and asked her for LUNCH ADRs for Chefs on the 17th…. they had 1:30. I went ahead and took it, remembering that Remy was now visiting Chefs de France from 12 - 6 (Thanks Lady Lallie! ) I asked her for any openings for Le Cellier on the 20th and 17th, and there was still “NO availability.” So though I was a little disappointed, I turned to Tutto Italia and was able to get that on the 17th. San Angels was closed for renovation for these dates, which I didn’t know, so we could not choose it. At this time I was scanning AllEars to remind me of the other restaurants, they had Nine Dragons, but I was not sure about taking it, and I just happened to say “I wish Tokyo Dining had ADRs” to which the CM said, “oh, actually they do ADRs.” I sat up quick and asked for availability b/c everywhere I had read prior told me that they didn’t. This is a choice we would all like, so fortunately there was availability on the 20th. I was ready to move on to other reservations, and I then asked her about “saving the ADR’s”. She said the system hadn’t been kicking people off, so she wasn’t worried about that. I probably should have listened to that voice in my head, because as soon as she turned to reserve our Pirate Cruise, the system locked up and the ADRs were “gone.” NOW, I am pretty good at holding myself together. But after 40 minutes, it took a lot for me to calmly ask her “what do we do, now? She asked me if I had the times and dates that she had given me, and I said yes, so she proceeded to write them all down, and them enter them all back into the system… I asked her if other people would be able to book them and she said “No” -- this surprised me, but I believed her, and yes it happened that she was able to “recovered” everything. I asked her to check one last time for Cali Grill on the 18th. Amazing as it is, she found it. So I was very happy, we got it after all. She was able to make my Pirate Adventure ressie and the ressie for the Neverland Club. This initial call took 1 hour and 14 minutes.

I had to get going so I couldn’t think about it any further. On my drive, however, I called again and I asked if they had Le Cellier for 6/23. They had 4:00… I started to say okay, and she said, “Oh wait, actually it refreshed with 5:40.” OH Boy! So of course I grabbed it, and cancelled the WCC I had already made. In my head I had realized that I could do a little more rearranging and get things to work with my previous park plans. That call took 10 minutes. I called one last time to add my “celebration” details to various ADRs, and confirm all of my ADR #s and times. Another 10 minutes. And now I sit here, exhausted but Happy!

SO, let me recap the + and – of the experience (look, Lady Lallie, a LIST!):

What worked
1. I did get what I wanted, generally speaking, so 90% with some
moving time/date slots.
2. Two of the Three CMs I spoke to were pretty quick in the system.
3. Looking at those later trip dates for harder to book restaurants.
4. Checking a second and third time even in the same call. Things
popped up that hadn’t been there initially.

What didn’t work very well
1. A CM who was painfully slow and lost my ADRs but then found them
again – the call took over an hour (though some of the delay was
possibly my fault too because I was having to make 2nd and 3rd
choice decisions).
2. Having to wait 90 days! I think this is really a drag because it
wasn’t easy getting specific choices on specific days/times
3. The long long long ADR #s!
4. The anxiety when you hear that ADRs are booked up completely.

Alright, so if this is the way it will be from now on, I like the system, but I don’t like the 90 window. It is frustrating to know that a restaurant can be filled before we even have a chance to check, just because someone's arrival date is a few days earlier, and even though they may not have been planning a trip before 90 days… This is no way a jab of negativity to anyone else, we all have the same opportunity eventually, but I just feel that the odds were better with more time to actually call and there was more time to process choices, if something needed to be thought out again. I felt rushed. These are my immediate reflections on the process and my experience. I will post my new ADRs and Itinerary along side my old plans so you can see how much I changed once I actually called. I hope this will help with strategy for some of you. I am excited to digest this all now, and I look forward to sharing it!

Thanks for reading. If you are getting ready to do ADRs, I hope it has given you some ideas. Look for the FUN post tonight!!!

The play by play of your ADR call had me stressing out! My stomach was flip flopping as I read along. Whew. I am so glad that you were able to get most of what you wanted.

I love the list by the way, but I am sure you already knew that.

I can't wait to see all your ADRs and itinerary.

Oh my -- you did have quite the adventure with your ADR call!

I am glad that you were able to get everything you wanted in the end.

Question: when you made your Neverland ressie, what all did they want to know? Do they want approximate times? Do they take a credit card hold or charge any kind of deposit? I think I want to make a ressie at Simba's so Charles and I can have an adult night.

Question: when you made your Neverland ressie, what all did they want to know? Do they want approximate times? Do they take a credit card hold or charge any kind of deposit? I think I want to make a ressie at Simba's so Charles and I can have an adult night.
HI! My toddler has a day off Montessori school today, so I had to stay home...
They gave me an "official" reservation, and for the Neverland Club, no, I don't believe so, I needed it for the Pirate cruise, but I don't think she did it for Neverland Club.... They asked for it at Cali Grill TOO. They just wanted a start time, and an "approximate" end time.. you didn't have to commit to the end time, I gave three hours, that is what I had been planning... you can make that reservation like dining. I got the same long long #!

I did get what I wanted, mostly, it was pretty crazy though!
