    DD discovered the bon voyage breakfast only after i'd finished booking all our ADRs...

    when i tried to get us the breakfast, it was completely booked for every one of our 21 days at WDW...

    so i registered at touring plans for their ADR search alert.

    It just now popped up in my email - it had found an ADR for our group of 8.

    I immediately went into the system and voila!! we now have an ADR for the bon voyage breakfast (making several in our group VERY very happy!!!)..

    so if there's an ADR that you haven't had success snagging, try the touring plan alerts (it was free!!)..

    I really like the service too.

    I managed to get V&A two weeks before our last trip at the exact time we wanted! It's brilliant.

    that's fantastic!!
    yes, this is also 2 weeks before our trip...
    i didn't expect that i'd actually get the ADR, but i figured i might as well sign up for the alert..
    after all, we're a group of 8...i was sure it was a lost cause!

    You have given me hope - I have just realised that both of our MK meals (CP and BOG) that I booked so we could enjoy the new fireworks, fall on stupid Halloween party nights. I could cry! Cue urgent rearranging needed! I shall register now!

    I'm so flipping annoyed. There's barely any nights when there's no Halloween party whilst there. Really cuts down on your freedom and choices!

    It's a good feature!

    I'd also say keep an eye on things throughout your stay, we've picked up some gems same day or day before in the past!

    Me too! Got the one I was desperate for thank goodness, but got two more that I need to tweak that I'm currently not having much luck with!

    yes, i'm trying to tweak one....we have it, but way too early for lunch...so i'm trying to move it to a more normal lunchtime..

    and the other one we don't have at all....
    we have something else, but i think the toddlers would prefer the one i'm trying to get...

    it will all be fine even if i don't succeed...it's not a dealbreaker...just a deal enhancer! :)
