Alright, I said I wasn't going to be online and making changes to get into the Cali Grill.... But my DW made me do it.


I ended up cancelling my Artist Point ADR and switched my Citricos ADR in it's place and ended up getting the Cali Grill on Dec. 3rd for 5:00 PM. This is perfect because it is a 1/2 hour earlier than my prior ADR and making it easier to get to MVMCP that evening on time.

So glad I got up early to book our ADR's!!!! Reserved for 12/4/13, 2/9/14, and 2/14/14!! I'm so excited! I wish I could go next month! It would be lovely if the lucky posters going next month could come back to this forum and post photos and a review.

Thanks for the updates during the wait! I hope everyone gets their ADR's! Hopefully as everyone books in to CG, I can finally get into 'Ohana during our December trip as well! I'll try later on today for that one!

-April

If we are waiting to be seated and Wishes is starting, will they let us watch from outside? We just want dessert and I thought a 7:40 was a little early for just dessert so I booked the 8:45.

Are you on the full site or using the MDE Smartphone app? I had the same problem with the app so switched to the full pc site and got in.

Got mine!

Kinda surprised I really got it that easy. 6:18 am and it only took 2 tries
I have 7:25 reservations on Sept 9th - Official opening day. I consider myself lucky because we are only in WDW until the morning of the 11th

I think that it getting pushed until the crush of summer was over as a good thing. congrats to everyone else on getting their ressies

Woohoo!! Was able to get our Oct 5th reservation! Plus got my dad and his wife a Cal Grill reservation later in our vacation without loosing my BOG for the rest of the family. Tricky business!

Thanks to everyone who contributed to this thread. Especially those who shouted out when the site opened early. I would have trusted the red sign saying it was still closed if it wasn't for you generous folk.

I just got 12/4. Try clicking on the CG, going to the page that lists the restaurant and booking it in the small blue box on the right side of the page. The page still says in red that dates aren't available, but it will show times you can book for your date in the blue box. Maybe see you there!!

Can you switch AP to another night? It saw I was double-booked with AP for Christmas Eve so I chose a later time for CA Grill and POOF! It didn't notice my double-booking anymore, so I have both right now. I can work out the details with DD and DH later when they're, ummm, more receptive. I tried to share my excitement with DH around 0600 and he looked a bit like he thought he was having a nightmare - yeesh, I've been obsessed with this since 0530
