just booked today for free dining DEC but i know ADR's have been out for 2 weeks and i can't get kids choices for character meals. How often do you recheck for availability, daily, weekly, closer to dates? We could not get any of the requests we wanted , but we did get Garden Grill (was not fond of in the past-hopefully better), Coral Reef although none of us are fish/sea food eaters.Biegardent Germany, and Mama Melrose. Trying for CM, CRT, 1900 park fare, Tusker house, Crystal Palace. Is there a chance these might open up? We like to plan what parks on what day, but we had to book around our ADR's and some of the parks are not recommended on the day we need to go.
