We just booked our trip today for the beginning of November..so I am trying to get reservations now. I can get mama melrose's for the day we are at mgm. This is great because this is where my dh and I ate on our honeymoon..so we are happy to go there.. The only place that we really wanted to get was Cinderella's castle. My kids want that in the worst way. I cannot get dinner ressies for my entire week(party of 5). Is there still a chance? Should I call ? Is that more likely? Or just keep checking the reservation system on Disney's site? Also..if I put in one time..is that they only time they check? Do I need to keep going back and changing times? We are also going to AK ..we do not have hopper passes...Is Tusker house ok? I kind of want to try to make everyone happy. So I am thinking of a character meal...Which is better food wise..Chef Mickey's or Crystal Palace(for dinner)? We are going to Seaworld one day and the park is only open until 6pm ..so plan on making a res at T rex..I know it isn't on the DDP..but we are using two credits<hopefully> For C castle. Thanks guys!
