Try to go right after the lunch rush (say 12:30). By that time the early line rush has gone through and the line moves quickly!
We were there for lunch today. They were telling people with no dinner reservations to walk up to the castle gate keep at 2:30-2:45 to try for a time (to fill cancellations, etc).

Keep checking online too. We managed to get an ADR inside the Castle 2 weeks beforehand!

Disney requires a deposit for its popular meals now (>$200 for CRT), so more ADRs are becoming available online closer to the dates. People don't want to get stuck paying for an ADR they can't use. Also helps that Disney sends a reminder about an upcoming ADR (I think it was about 36 hours before your time).

We are staying at Port Orleans French Quarter. As I thought from your ADR day of 180, we will be there the same as you guys, August 19-Sept 1. I've read lots of great threads about AOA but haven't been there myself. Looks great. Are you guys driving, flying out of Pearson? We are flying from Buffalo.

I have secured a number of our upcoming dining reservations with a credit card but have not been charged any $$. I understood the only time my CC would be charged as if I did not show up for a reservation (or cancelled within 24 hours) and then a charge of $10/pp on the reservation would be charged.

Has this changed?

We're really limited in where we can stay without having to get 2 rooms since there are 5 adults, so I was thrilled when Disney opened the family suites. We've always driven staight through in the past but this time we'll be flying. We'll be flying out os the States but not sure if it will be Buffalo, Detroit or Sryacus (DS and DDIL live in Ottawa so Syracus is closer to them) It will depend on where we can get the best price.
