Same thing happened to me last week. Then the next day I found the availability again and was able to do it myself online. When I called a little while later to cancel my original reservation, the CM scolded me and said I should have called to change the reservation. He had no answer when I told him I tried to do that only to have the availability disappear while on hold!

Thanks... Do you know what page that was on ( the people who emailed?). Just want to make sure I send it in the same way

We ate there our last trip (2008) and have ADR again for our December trip. We all liked it and I had very picky eaters when we went before

My kids a picky eater but loves pizza so after looking at there menu I noticed they have a flatbread pizza, my mother loves steak and I like chicken parm so this seemed to work out the best. I want to see the Osborne Christmas lights go on at six.

We ate there (Mama Melrose) a couple of years ago. It was good, but not great to us. Nothing overtly "wrong" with it, just wasn't outstanding.

We're doing something different this time around, but not purposely avoiding it.

Is that a vague enough recommendation??? :-)

I still love it when I see a post on Facebook that says they just broke the news on something we've discussed here for days or even weeks. Haha

Hi Guys
I need help. I called the Dining reservations for information, but didn't hear what I wanted to so thought I would check here too.

I have tickets for the MVMCP which starts at 7pm. I also have reservations for Crystal Palace at 4pm. I thought I had heard that w/the MVMCP tickets you could get in the part at 4:30pm. I wanted to confirm this, so I called.

The CM I spoke with said I would have to have a regular park admission tickets for the 4:30 reservation and that entry for the MVMCP won't begin until 7:00. I do know she was looking this up off the "web" site as she was reading the information to me.

Since I don't want to use one of my regular admissions should I just cancel the Crystal Palace reservation?

Thanks for your knowledge and advice.

I know with MNSSHP I can enter park at 4 pm, so I would think MVMCP would the same??? 3 hours prior to party start time.

You won't have any problem getting to your ADR with just the party ticket- CMs start admitting party guests at 4pm. For some reason, even though the 4pm admittance policy has been in place for YEARS, the CMs on the phone tell people that they won't get in until 7, which is NOT TRUE. Don't worry and have a great dinner at Crystal Palace.

I called and asked the same thing except my reservation was at 3:50 so before the 4:00 time I read they would let you in and the cm I spoke to said it was ok. I bet if we called a third one would give us a different answer.

Thanks for your input. It's so hard to figure which adr would work best. We're at ak that day and do not usually stay till closing. Just not sure what to pick that's on the way to hs.

I've been doing that on these same boards. I'm scrolling through Community or Resorts and someone comes out with "hey ......" either an announcement or question about FD or RO or even F&W and I'm like um yeah if you'd been on the Discounts and code board and following our thread you'd already know that.
