    Waking up at 6am was totally worth it! We did online ADRs for the first time, and it was seamless. We got EVERY SINGLE ADR we wanted! Thought I'd share:

    10/3 6:15 dinner Tutta Italia
    10/4 7:05 dinner at Ohana
    10/5 7:00 dinner at Cape May
    10/6 7:15 dinner at Coral Reef
    10/7 9:25 breakfast at Chef Mickey, 7:00 dinner at Chef de France
    10/8 6:05 dinner at Boma
    10/9 6:40 dinner at Le Cellier
    10/10 6:00 dinner at San Angel

    We are a party of 5, so I was nervous we wouldn't get anything, but we did!

    Share your good news too!!

    We did (and have every trip since we started making ADRs in 2007).

    8/9 - Boma (10:30AM)
    8/10 - Sanaa (5PM)
    8/11 - Yak and Yeti (5:45PM) - actually wanted 6PM, but I'm not sure what time their last dinner seating is on that day.
    8/13 - Whispering Canyon (5PM)
    8/15 - Crystal Palace (8:10 AM) - actually wanted 8:05, but 5 min. won't kill us
    8/16 - Tusker House w/ priority seating for Nemo (1:05PM)
    8/17 - Plaza (12:15PM)
    8/18 - Chef Mickey's (7:35AM)
    8/19 - 'Ohana (5:30PM)
    8/22 - Plaza (6:10PM)

    We also got Le Cellier for the 12th and a Fantasmic Dinner Package that we cancelled. I can't justify paying Le Cellier prices when paying out of pocket, even w/ the TIW discount - it's not worth it. On the DDP, I love eating there. And with the changes to the Fantasmic Package entrance, we didn't feel it was worth it.

    I generally what I ask for... that's without getting up early to book on the first day.

    The only exception seems to be Le Cellier, which has exploded in popularity in the last few years. I've been told "no" on that one about 3 times.

    Got everything I wanted within 30 minutes of my desired time! I even got Le Cellier on the day and exact time I wanted. I am so excited. I was very flexible with a couple days, since we will be in MK on at least three days, those adrs were interchangable, thank God. I almost freaked when I could only get Tony's at lunch time on Sunday, but just switched it for Kona on Thursday and now have both for dinner. (I really wanted to eat at Kona earlier in the trip anyway). My adr's are listed on the October ADR thread.

    Congrats to everyone who got their ADRs!

    I made my ADRs last Monday, and was totally freaking out about it. But the BF set it straight and told me that it was FREE dining, and I should just enjoy being able to eat anywhere! I got most of what I wanted on day one, kept trying every day afterward, and now I'm super-duper pleased with everything!

    Now we just have to plan what we're eating....YUM! :woohoo:

    :wizard: pixie dust!! pixie dust!! Looks like we will be there the same time!

    Good luck with your ADRs tomorrow. One piece of advice...when you are ready to check out, MAKE SURE you click the box that says "I accept these terms blah blah blah". I didn't do that the first time, and I had to hit the back button, and a lost ALL my ADRs!!! My cart was empty!! I had to start over, but luckily I still got what I wanted.

    Just thought I'd share, so that doesn't happen to anyone else!! Good luck!

    We got everything we wanted as well. I have been so worried about not finding ADRs for our trip, especially during the beginning, due to free dining. Let me just say this though - online ADRs are so dangerous! I had my restaurants booked, and then an hour later was playing around and found CRT for MNSSHP and switched things around. :rotfl:

    10/2 Spirit of Aloha @ 8pm - 1st tier. Hoped to use credits, but 2nd and 3rd tiers are sold out
    10/3 Planet Hollywood @ 12pm, California Grill @ 545pm
    10/6 CRT @ 510pm
    10/7 Coral Reef @ 415pm
    10/8 Tutto Italia @ 430pm
    10/9 Chef Mickey's @ 8am

    We're going during free dining in September. We have deluxe dining and I just knew it was going to be bad getting all the adr's we wanted. Well, we are going for 10 days and on the first call we got every single adr at the exact time we wanted. I couldnt believe it. I thought I'd be calling back for months trying to get changes done. But nope, it went so smooth!

    I'm so happy to see all of the success stories! I'm have a mini anxiety attack every time I think about making my ADRs. My 90 day mark is tomorrow morning, I'll all set to be at my computer at 5:45 waiting for the 6am start time. I'm just scared I'll get nothing I want, which I know won't happen, but still I'll be so much happier once it's all over and done with.

    We did too. Very relieved about that. I was mostly worried about 'Ohana because many people have been saying that they aren't finding it, but we got the time we wanted for that and everything else. :)
