Thanks Rachel. I called IPO and they are going to keep checking for Le Cellier. That has always been our favorite restaurant since we started going to WDW. I will be so bummed if we are unable to get a reservation.

Oh, no. I hope that you are able to get LeCellier for your vacation. Hopefully there will be a cancellation.

We are worried about Cinderella's Royal Table and Ohana's. I know they are difficult to get. I don't care if it's breakfast or lunch for CRT or what time of morning or afternoon, we just really want to experience the Princess meal. Same thing with Ohana's. We are super flexible with times and days (well, except Ds's birthday) the six nights we are on the dining plan.

It's been my experience that if you're that flexible with the date and time, the IPO office should be able to get those two for you. We had to take our 2nd choice date on 'Ohana once, but that really wasn't a big deal. And CRT wasn't so much of a problem (probably because of the price). We prefer lunch over breakfast there, so that may have helped, too.

With Le Cellier, we were able to get a lunch instead of dinner -- and I ended up much happier since I like the lunch menu better anyway.

All of this was for our trip in July & August, and I did not give the IPO office 90 days notice for any of them!

Have you checked for a lunch ADR? That was all we could get in July and we ended up happier to be there at lunch than we would have been at dinner. I've been told by several IPO offices that the one's that give them the most trouble are: Le Cellier, CRT, and 'Ohana.

I hope you get what you want!

I'd never booked a trip with less than 90-days notice before, so I was really stressed about getting everything I wanted. But we were able to get all the restaurants with some day/time compromises, and even book the Sunrise Safari (now that would have been a deal-breaker if it was unavailable).

Let us know how it all turns out!!!

My 90 day mark is today....at what point do you think I'll hear from the IPO with my ADRs? Should I call if I don't hear by a certain point?

I would, some IPOs are better than others about contact.

Jen and Holly,

I'm with you. Trying to wait patiently for an email about my ADRs today (not that I asked for much).

I would hope they're working on everyone's ADRs first and will worry about emailing us all later. But it's still hard to be patient

I'm trying to hold off on calling, but I want to know if I got my ADRs. I didn't ask for much either, but we did want Cinderella's Royal Table and I just tried to book it online and couldn't get the date or time we needed....now I'm worried!
For those who have already passed this mark....how long did it take for you to hear from your IPO?

Holly,

I just noticed that you're at GF this December. I'm at CR. So it's the same IPO office that will be working on our ADRs (GF and CR share).

I'll let you know when I finally get an email.

I hope you all find out soon. It is so hard to be patient, I can relate. I booked the hotel and airfare in January and it has been a very long 9 months.

I have been so nervous about our ressies but I checked my email about 20 minutes ago and there it was!

Here are our ADR's:

Dec 13: Ohana 6:55 pm
Dec 14: 50's Prime Time 4:15 pm
Dec 15: BBB 8:40 am; CRT 10:30 am
Dec 16: 1900 Park Fare 5 pm
Dec 17: Rainforest @ AK 5:15 pm; Pirates and Pals Fireworks Cruise 8:15 pm
Dec 18: T-Rex 5 pm
Dec 19: Crystal Palace: 8:25 am

Everything is within a couple minutes. CRT, Park Fare, and Rainforest are exactly the times we requested. The only thing a little more off is T-Rex, and truthfully the time is actually better than the 6:30 pm we originally asked for.

I also have to say that I am super impressed with the Poly IPO. The email says it was sent at 6:54 this morning. If this is an indication of how our vacation will go, we will definately be wanting to stay there again!

Jenjulia -- I'm so glad that you were able to get what they wanted. I was very pleased with the Poly IPO office and the work they did for our April vacation. Glad that you're getting that level of service as well!
