That's what I'm afraid of. That they will move my location that I booked on first day available. They still have tables available on 9/8 now. I'm just gonna have to take that chance. Thanks for your opinion.

Seems to me they would just modify the existing ADR to reflect party of 2 rather than 3 since they can not book a new ADR as there is no availability for a
Party of 2.
Thanks for the reply. That's what I'm hoping for, that they'll just take away the chair and leave us where we are. LOL

I know that the website says that the reservations open 60 days out, but I was told when making my other ADRs that dessert party for Dec would open 90 days out. Whether it will or won't, I will personally start checking 1st of Sept (maybe sooner :-)

It's not going to open before October or November, so save yourself some time and don't start obsessively looking until November opens Definitely keep an eye on this thread too since we are all so obsessive. Not much gets past us

Can someone walk me through how to book on line.
When I go to Where to Eat=Make Dining Reservations= Dining Event , I get only Dine With An Imagineer? as my option.
It's for my sisters birthday trip in October (I know it isn't available yet but want to be ready)
Thanks in advance (usually I'm good at this stuff)

Hi what I did is go to the wdw site and typed in tomorrowland terrace. Then it gives a link to look up dates for the wished dessert party. On the small calendar pick the date, change location drop down box to tomorrowland terrace and then click ok. Hope that helps

Bummer...

So I've been trying to get an ADR for the TTFDP since March for my trip in September.. First I was told call 90 days before your trip then I was told 60 days before my trip. Lo and behold today I find out they opened the September calendar and are booked the entire week I am at WDW. If anyone has reservations for 9/8 and decides to give them up, pretty please let me know! I only have two in my party and we have been trying to do this since our second trip in 2010.

Thanks!

Your best bet is to search online for a party 3 then book 2 Adults and 1 child under 3 (no charge) either show up with just 2 or cancel the phantom child beforehand

Tables for a party of 2 are very limited and book up very fast

Good Luck!

Maybe someone here can help me with this. My mother,son and I will be going to wdw in November with the hopes of getting an adr for the dessert party on 11/10. My sis and her husband will be there the week before us and want to surprise my mom by showing up at the dessert party to celebrate my mom's 70th birthday. How can I surprise her if I make the ress for five people? I don't want her to know my sister will be there. Should I make two separate ress and is there anyway of letting someone know if we can have our tables near each other or make it for five people but let someone know to not mention the other two people on the ress. Do all people on the ress need to show up at the same time? Or can they come in a little later?

Does your mom have access to your MDE? If not, she won't really know how many people are on the reservation....have your son distract her when you check in (if son is too young to let in on the secret, suggest mom and son stand aside while you go to check in) so they don't say "party of 5" or something....and when they seat you at a 6top table, just shrug your shoulders if she asks why you have such a large table, lol. Or....time it so that your sister walks up in line just behind you and surprises mom in line! Texting would be a big help in that timing....sis could stand inside the building next to TLT and just come up behind you as you walk into line. I seriously doubt there is a way to assure that two reservations would be sitting together......I know they place them in the order received, but if by the time you finish reservation #1 (online or on phone) there could have been a half dozen others finishing their reservation before you're done with #2.

What great kids mom has to celebrate her big birthday with her at WDW! I just turned 50 earlier this month and I hope someone does the planning for a big trip for my 70th!
