Raglan Road
Portobello
Chef Mickey's
Ohana
BOG
Coral Reef
Shula's

And we told the kids this morning that we were going....November can't get here fast enough

Check every day and something will be sure to come up! Book Akershus for the mean time so you have a back up plan. Check everyday online for an ADR at CRT, and likely you will get one if you are persistent. This has worked numerous times for us

For the record, Akershus is wonderful! So you can't go wrong with either!

Has anybody gotten a reservation for BOG on a MVMCP night or are they closing it up for the party like they did late year?

I had a reservation for 2 to bog on Friday, nov 22 but then I realized it was a mvmcp and I changed it. I didn't want to pay twice to get into the event since I picked a different day. So yes they have reservations open

It is a 1.1 out of 10 crowd, BUT this is where it confuses me...it is a neutral park day..yet the following night..the 15th is also a 1.1 day but a best park day I would think Friday would be an avoid day because it's Friday

Thank you so much! I thought the Friday would be busy too that's why I chose the Thursday.

Usually the crowds at MK are lighter during the day when there is a MVMCP that evening since people do not want to use a park ticket on a day that MK closes early at 7 PM for the party.

The projected crowd levels for the day has nothing to do with how busy the MVMCP will be on a particular night, only the daytime crowds.

I think we're destined to stay at POR, lol!!

DH and I went to Disney for our honeymoon 14 yrs ago and stayed there (was Dixie Landings at that time).. that was both our first times ever to Disney. Then 9 yrs later when we decided to take dd's for the first time, we loved it so much we ended up going back there.

Fast forward 5 yrs, and we thought we might never afford to get back to Disney, Then I ended up getting a free dining pin, and made tentative plans to stay at POP. But then got to thinking that my mom had never been to Disney and would love to go.. brought the idea up to her which she LOVED, so switched to POR to be able to stay in 1 room. And best part is, she's insisting on paying for the difference in price plus some, so we'll be getting a better dining plan and even saving money.

Can't wait,

Thinking we might never venture from there, lol!

I know the first Party, this year Friday Nov8th is very busy if not a sell out as it falls this year on Veterans Day weekend plus is on a Friday which tend to be busier due to "locals" attending. Thursday nights are normally a better day as are Tuesdays and Sundays.

I got up yesterday morning at 5:00 (we were camping and we didn't have very good phone/internet service) to make sure I was ready to go when the window opened for my ADRs. I was able to get most of the reservations I wanted via the computer at 6am. Then at 6:55 I dialed the reservation number and was placed on hold. I held the phone for 32 min when a CM answered the phone and said "Mama I can't get you to the survey line at this time I am having phone problems." I responded by saying I was not holding for the survey line and she must have lost the previous caller but I needed to make a reservation. She said "Ok" and hung up the phone. I was so upset. By now it was 7:38 so I dialed the number again. I held for 20 min when my phone said "CALL FAILED" and I lost the call. By now I was almost in tears. I called one more time using both my phone and my DH's. This way I figure if one cuts off at least I have a backup. So at 8:32 I hear a CM on my phone asking how she can help. I told her I needed to make a few ADRs and she was able to help me book all of the ones I wanted except 1900 Park Fare. She said the November dates for 1900 had not been realized yet and for me to check back tomorrow. She was also able to book our BBB and Pirate Make Over too. I was off the phone at 9:45.

I checked back a few times via the computer last night and made two more phone calls during the day still trying to get 1900 but I didn't have any luck.

I'm so excited!!!! I just booked 1900 Park Fare via the computer so now I have all the ADRs that my family wanted. We were also able to get the times we wanted except BOG. The only time available was 8:55 for dinner. I don't really like to eat that late, however, the kids said they couldn't go to MK without eating with the Beast.

Here is our schedule:

11/24 Hollywood Studios Day
9:25 B - Hollywood and Vine (at the request of my DS(9) who says it is for my DD(1)
2:50 L - Mama Melrose (for my DH)

11/25 Animal Kingdom Day with Dinner at Epcot
9:10 B - Tusker House (Whole Family Loves)
6:35 D - Garden Grill (kids)

11/26 Non-Park Day (we plan to stay around the Fort)
9:35 B - 1900 Park Fare
6:15 D - Hoop Dee Do Review

11/27 Magic Kingdom
8:05 B - Crystal Palace
12:20 L - Cinderella's Royal Table (my niece - this is the first time I have been able to get a reservation on any of our trips to CRT. She is so happy.)
8:55 D - Be Our Guest (Kids must do)

11/28 Magic Kingdom
9:15 B - Ohana (this is all ME)
6:55 D - Liberty Tree Tavern (DH request for a real Thanksgiving Dinner)

11/29 Epcot
8:00 B - Cape May Cafe (this is all ME)
6:25 D - Coral Reef (hoping to change this to the Candlelight Procession Dinner when it becomes avilable)

11/30 NON-Park Day (my Mom, Sister and two nieces go home on this day)
9:30 B - Chef Mickey's
5:30 D - Mickey's Backyard BBQ (my DS wanted to do this and since it will just be the four of us we said yes)

12/1 Epcot (World Showcase Only)
9:35 B - Akershus Royal Banquet
1:10 L - Chefs de France
7:00 D - Le Cellier Steakhouse

12/2 Hollywood Studios
1:25 L - Mama Melrose (yes my DH said we had to eat there twice)
6:30 D - Sci Fi

12/3 Magic Kingdom
8:50 B - Crystal Palace
4:40 D - Tony's Town Square

12/4 Universal Studios (Harry Potter)

12/5, 12/6, 12/7 and 12/8
Still working on these dates. I am waiting to see if my niece is going to dance in the Christmas Parade again. If she does dance then I will spend most of these days at MK with her. If she doesn't dance then I want to go back to Epcot and Animal Kingdom with a day at Downtown Disney.
