    Do we stand a chance at getting ressies at some good places if we're leaving in just over a month and haven't even decided for sure where all we wanna eat yet?? Any time I've been there in the past we always kinda winged it and ate on the run. This time we wanna slow down a bit more and try some good food. We're pretty sure we wanna try Mama Melroses, Hollywood & Vine, Brown Derby, Garden Grill, Chef Mickeys, Crystal Palace, Ohanas, Kona Cafe, etc but we're not sure what day, what time, etc. I've been researching various posts here to get info on some of the restaurants and was already able to eliminate some of the ones we were thinking of.

    Not to worry, call and see what's available. It's better to do it before you go rather than get to a park on a particular day and not be able to get into the restaurant you want. I just made these ressies last week and I call back every once in a while and have added a few more and checked ones which were "sold" out. I'm still working on moving CRT to the day I really wanted it.

    I haven't made many lunch ressies because we've loaded up on dinner places. So we usually wing them by calling on the day we are headed to a particular park and we see what's available. I like the balance between fixed and flexible.

    So where would a solo traveler choose to eat during a planned trip to WDW at Holiday time?

    Dinner reservations: Confirmed so far: Le Cellier, Tony's Town Square, San Angel Inn, and the Brown Derby.

    Lunch reservations: Confirmed so far: Coral Reef, and the Liberty Tree Tavern.

    To be reserved soon: Epcot restaurant with Candlelight dinner ticket.

    The OP also asked why these spots? That's easy. Because I've enjoyed all of them before (with the exception of LeCellier and the Liberty Tree Tavern, both of which I am looking forward to because of all the excellent reviews on this site).

    I made some reservations 6 days in advance, some 2 months in advance. I really do not think you will have a problem if you call now to make your reservations. Our friend made the ones 2 months ago, and she couldn't get us into a few of the restaurants at the times we wanted (they have kids and didn't want to eat past 6:30). When she made the reservation for hollywood and vine the ONLY time they had was like 4:40 or something, but we are also a bigger party.

    Whew. Thanks. I printed out a bunch of menus at perspective restaurants and made notes on them (I'm a vegetarian) now I have the DF going over them so he can decide which ones have things he'd eat ... I'll probably make some calls this weekend. There's no penalties for having to cancel or change times (if possible) is there?

    I do not think there is a penalty at all. People on here always talk about "just cancel". Since I have never made an ADR personally, I really have no idea!
