    Well lets see here I called them this morning to look for some dining options without the dining plan and some early times before we head to the parks for breakfast and well lets see most of the famous ones well they are just full or out of the time slot. Most of them either are full for breakfast or have like a 10:30 time which is late for us!

    going from June 8-14!

    One option is to try places that dont take the dining plan, like the Rainforest Cafe (I believe). I dont remember even having a problem getting a reservation for a restaurant (except of course the castle) until the dining plan was started.

    breakfast is that a lot of park restaurants don't serve it. In the MK only CP and CRT do. I don't think a TS restaurant in Epcot serves breakfast. The resort restaurants do generally serve breakfast. People wanting to start out with breakfast in the parks (or on the monorail loop) grab the ADRs quickly.

    Recently we have been doing light breakfasts at the room or the food court in the resort with a lunch in the parks. ADRs seem to be easier to get that way.

    Did you try Cape May Cafe over at the Beach Club? Or 1900 Park Fare? I was able to get into Park Fare for the end of June just last week.

    i made my ADR on the 180 day mark for August, but i hadnt booked Ohana back in Feb and wished i had,

    so i finally rang WDW yesterday, and they had some reseverations left for Ohana in August, i was well suprised, the lady was like oh i only have 8:15pm, that was the time we want, we always eat late on holiday more time in the parks, don't have to rush around to get ready, we also got another ADR for the 50's

    i was thinking of ringing to see if i could get Le Cellier but that will mostly likely be full wont it?

    I tried to get LeCellier a couple months ago, for June 2-5... all they had was lunch. But it doesn't hurt to give it a try.

    We just had lunch a couple of weeks ago at Le Ceiller, and it was phenominal! Don't be so quick to turn it down. The day of our reservation, they were taking absolutely no walk-ins, not even at lunch.

    BTW--Norway in Epcot has a great character breakfast!:thumbsup2

    I agree with the PP, lunch at Le Cellier is quite good, and you can still get a number of the signature dishes.

    And you never know what you'll get when you call Disney Dining. We were down there in April and in the middle of our trip we decided to try and add another character breakfast for the last full day of our trip. We called, and we were able to get into Tusker House for 9:10, in the only open spot all morning. You just never know when someone will cancel.

    I'm at WDW right now and I've never seen the restaurants so packed. We stopped in at Guest Relations in Epcot yesterday morning to check in for our tour and they had the board out that said there was only limited spots available at San Angel in Mexico and that was the only TS in the entire park that wasn't already fully booked for the day. And the crowds seem fairly light except in the restaurants.

    We have all of our ADR's but I sure miss the days of eating when we got hungry rather than planning our days around the meals.

    Well I called today again in the afternoon and it changed like night and day.

    Chef Mickey dose not have any openings for breakfast all week long!
    CP- Dose not have any breakfast openings all week long!
    1900 Park and Fare- Only a few limited times late though!

    The reason why we are doing breakfast is because we want to spend max amount of times in each park. Really lunch is just stands and such sort. Also dinner is the same due to the time for the shows and such. Last year I went with a different family it was like this and it worked out well. Our fault for waiting so long with the plans so now its too late. I will call everyday to see if there is an opening!
