I usually "TWEAK" here and there--- just booked our Thanksgiving trip
11/28-12/7, and had booked "Le Cellier" one day----

As soon as I mentioned seeing Remy to our DD7, I had to change to "Chefs De France" !!!

(However, I did switch the "Le Cellier" to Sunday, when Remy "doesnt work")

I constantly change ADR's too! I'm always looking for something better - better reviewed restaurant or better time - and sometimes our schedule changes. You are definitely not alone! And I agree, it does extend the planning which is half the fun for me

I don't think I will. I got every ADR except BOG at the perfect times. I am still looking for BOG but not sure I want to skip the ADR I have for that particular day.

OMG, I am terrible about changing ADR's!!! I am constantly wanting to make my next Disney vacation the best ever, so I'm always looking at different websites and reviews of restaurants. One day one place sounds really good, the next day something different. My terrible sadness right now is that Kona changed their dinner menu and none of the food is appealing to me right now. Dessert, that's another story!!!

I do - am always changing my mind. When you had to call your ADRs in I would make plans and stick with them, but, now it is so easy to change. So many great places - sometimes it's tough to get everything at the ideal times or if I change my mind and decide on a different plan for the day I added a breakfast at CP last night - not because of the character breakfast but to be in MK when it is quiet and deserted.

The thing is, who can really be certain exactly where they'll want to eat in six month? Not only where, but at what time?
It's hard. When I start, I just make sure I get down, basically, our favorites and guess the rest, knowing it will be fine regardless. Sometimes I remind myself that being there is so special that eating the marvelous counter service for our whole stay would never make me not want to be there, and then I relax more about the whole thing.

I change mine multiple times. I do keep the ones that are hard to get. I always have trouble deciding on Epcot dinners so those tend to change multiple times!

You're not alone! That's why I like making them online. It's easy and I don't feel paranoid that a CM is thinking, "She's changing AGAIN?!"

I just double book or dinner TS ADR's-1 in the park and 1 in our resort area-and then cancel 1 a day or two before (or same day if no CC ressie) once we know our defintive plans.

So no need to rearrange.

Oh yeah! I'm always looking for something better! I book, cancel and then end up rebooking the same restaurant I cancelled!

Me to!! the more I plan the more things change.

As soon as I booked the vacation I made reservations. Booked about 65 days out so was worried, but really there is only 2 I cant get, BOG and california grill but that one is closed for remodel.

But I call often checking for BOG, and when i do I always check for earlier times. I started with 7/13 dinners after 7 pm. I am down to only 2 now.

But i do still have 1900 Park fare twice. And as I was looking over my list While I was writing this I noticed we had 5 Epcot Dinner reservations. We DO NOT have hopper passes so i am going to have to change that. Epcot we can "do" in one day. So spending 5 days there will be a problem. hadnt even thought of that.

Since they track cancellations, do you get bad "marks" for making changes and canceling ADR's

I'm a changer too! I thought I had the perfect adr plan...then I got to thinking, maybe we would like to do 'Ohana again this trip....low and behold an ADR pops up at the perfect time for a yummy meal (and Lapu Lapu) before our MNSSHP night! Everything is perfect! Until...I decided wouldn't it be fun to have a pre-park opening breakfast at Tusker house? So I search and snag an 8:20 on our day! Perfect! Except then I think we may be a bit rushed to get thru the meal before 9, so I check again a few days later and find 8:10 which was SO much better (an extra 10 minutes, I know) so I snapped it up! This is what I do....all of the time! There's got to be a 12 step program somewhere out there for me right? LOL!

Lapu lapu is amazing! It is a fruity drink with a rum base served inside of a real pineapple! You can get them at the Tambu lounge inside the Pily by Ohana!
