No, don't worry. The table is assigned. I am waiting for December opening too!

I have another question about timing. Mine is pretty streight forward, 9 res and Wishes at 10. But when wishes at 9 on other nights, like October, why do they show reservations for 7 when wishes is at 9?
Just wondering.

Nov

HOLY COW!!! This process about gave me a heart attack! I just looked on here to see Nov was opened and immediately went online to book for 11/13. Here's the process I went through:

1. Online - no reservations available for 2 adults
2. Called travel agent WDW # (I'm a travel agent) - no reservations for 2 adults (full)
3. Called regular dining line - initially told this date wasn't available yet. I then nearly flipped out stating people on DisBoards reported bookings and that I was a travel agent so this was very confusing. The agent realized she had a crazy person on the line and went to check elsewhere. Yes, the date was available (surprise). But no reservation for 2 was available. I then stated we might have 3 people and went ahead and booked for 3. (Meanwhile seeing online a ressie for 3 was available.)
4. Called regular line again and was able to immediately adjust ressie from 3 people down to 2 with a refund back to our rewards card.

Going to try to catch my breath now. This is quite important as my 68 year old mother cannot stand long enough to hold a viewing space for Wishes - both of our favorite offering!

How can you invest so much money on a vacation and be so clueless?
If we keep going to Disney we will be like Peter Pan and never grow up!

I've been looking everyday for reservations and got busy this weekend. Really thought that it was going to open up tomorrow. Boy was I shocked tonight that people have been booking already. Tried to make my reservation No openings - oh wait, I put in for 3 quests and presto the spot is open. LOL
I've made my reservation for 3 and made the 3rd person a baby so I don't have to adjust my charge card when I call tomorrow. Whew one more thing done off my list.

Now if they would only tell us when they plan on doing the FL DVC previews and I can have a life back again/ LOl

what are these previews you guys are speaking of?

I did see that through the end of the year ALL DVC members can take advantage of the BLT viewing terrace for Wishes.

So I got 9:00 for a 10pm Wishes, would there have been earlier times then that. There are choices of 7, 8, and 9 on the dropdown menu on the site, but just curious.

I just got Nov 14 for 7:05 pm. I haven't checked when Wishes is that day yet ....

Thank you DIS for alerting me about the availability... I'm on the Magic right now and we docked in Halifax this morning and I was able to get internet from my phone (Canadian mobile phone).... and booked the ressies just now. :D
