Booking on a Sunday will be fine. I think you'll only need the Disney reservation number if you're hoping to use the 180 + 10 that those staying on site benefit from. Good luck booking

I'd recommend Crystal Palace for a character meal - but then my favourite character is Pooh so I'm biased. . Garden Grill is very good also as Chip & Dale are quite playful with 'older' guests & you'd meet the main man (or mouse) himsellf too.

Thanks for the good luck wishes, its my first time booking ADRs and I will admit to being quite nervous!And yes staying on site so have the 180+10
Ahhhh yes........Crystal Palace been toying with this for AGES, will i wont I...hehe I think im going to have to add this one in as a breakfast choice OOP i totally heart the 100 acre gang and i just needed and excuse to do so hehe
Hopefully I get all the slots I want would be a pity not too.
Should I be ready for let down with getting some of those even at the 180 day mark?

I've always managed to book exactly what I've wanted at the 180 day mark - I do as soon as it opens (Noon our time for on-line). Sometimes have to compromise on time I wanted - couldn't get Crystal Palace for 12 people at 8:05am, had to settle for 8:20 - but then booking for 12 was a challenge!!

The only one you may struggle with is CRT - very popular - if doing online have it all set up ready to go on the dot of noon.

Also remember to give them a ring if there's a reservation you can't get online!

I only say that because I tried reserving tea at the tea room in the GF, but kept getting a big fat 'unavailable' when I tried to reserve it online. I left it for a couple of days after resigning myself to not getting it when someone on here suggested ringing them up and enquiring. Well, it worked!

Can't believe I made my ADRs 50 days ago now!!! Time really does fly!
