We do this every year, and you usually get at least a few days notice, if not more. Unless they're trying something different, they won't just start taking reservations one morning, without giving notice. I don't think you'll miss it.

Can CP be booked online? Or do you have to call?
It can be done online.

I've been calling every day this week and have consistantly been told that they most likely won't be released until at least mid-July, as they are still trying to coordinate the speakers and still releasing items for the Food & Wine Festival.
That's a shocker! CMs being consistent about CP information? LOL The only "consistency" I've ever come across is the CMs inconsistencies when it comes to booking the CP. I don't know why.

Haven't seen any information yet today.

Just a warning about online booking. I had issues, and still had to call. So you might want to start the online booking, while on the phone. That's what I'll be doing whenever they release the info

We've made ADRs for CP weeks after it has been announced.....but there were restaurants that were "sold out" and of course the very popular speakers will sell out very very quickly.....like Neil Patrick Harris....I believe he holds the record for selling out.

If you will be there a few days and can be flexible about who you see and where you eat, then you can usually even find reservations a week or two before the event. But if you have your heart set on a popular restaurant and a specific speaker, then the sooner you get that done the happier you will be, lol.

We're going to do at least 2 CPs and possibly 3 depending on who the speakers are during our visit (we'll be there for 3 1/2 weeks, 2 of which are during CP)....and we're actually looking to book some of the "less" popular restaurants this time, so we shouldn't have much trouble....but the reason I am so anxious is that I just want to know!!!! and I want to be able to tweak and finalize the rest of our TS ADRs....I have several made that will have to be undone if CP needs to fit in there instead. I am one of those that would like to get this settled early and not have to do the mad scramble to change things around to fit things in.

Hi- for a previous poster concerned about Dec. 18 to 21- last year they had Trace Adkins during that time. I am not a country music fan, so I was a little disappointed that he was our narrator. What a wonderful surprise- he did an amazing job, and his deep voice is just right for this. You could also tell he took it seriously. He said he was humbled to be there. The whole thing moved me to tears, and I am hoping he will be there again. An advance list I saw on another board says he is there Dec. 19-21. Just want you to know you will not be disappointed with him as the narrator.

This! I just booked my Christmas Day dining ressie today. It was a waste of time to go online- the screen kept freezing and when I finally got to the list of available places, Whispering Canyon was not there. We needed a hotel dining ressie because a couple people in our party do not have Disney passes.

Ended up calling at 7 am, and having no trouble getting the ressie for the the time and place we wanted.

Where was the advance list? I googled and could only find LAST year's list ...

That list is not the 2013 list. It is the list from the Orlando Sentinel posted in Oct, 2010.

Subscribing and trying to be patient.

I just talked to Disney Dining and was told they have no idea when reservations for CP dinner packages will open.

Seems like every time someone calls, there is a different (non) answer. It will happen when it happens. No choice but to be patient and hope for the best.

First christmas time visit and so excited! CP is definitely a must do and appreciate all the info from this thread. Any suggestions on what restaurant to try to book? Does it help to be close to the pavilion in order to get in line faster? Do they allow plenty of time for transit between dinner and the CP? Thanks!

There is plenty of time to get from the restaurant to the theater. The reservations are grouped according to the show you are seeing, this info is from 2011:

Show 1 (5:00pm): Dining reservation between 1:45pm-2:45pm

Show 2 (6:45pm): Dining reservation between 3:30pm-4:30pm

Show 3 (8:15pm): Dining reservation between 5:00pm-6:00pm

This is a general idea, last year I think my reservation was around 12:45.

As for what restaurant, I say pick the one you will enjoy the most!

Agreed, plenty of time to get there. I thought I would hate it but I actually love La Hacienda de San Angel Inn. I was so disappointed one year because that's all I could get, but it turned out to be really good.
