I can't believe you booked LTT! Balderdash, I really should just book it. Maybe if you give it a glowing review then I will book it for May. Congrats on the June ADRs.
I can't wait to have that lunch at LTT, I'll let you know how it is, I've heard it's very good. Not a big risk taker here when it comes to dining.....

I have to go to work in the middle of the night at times and can totally relate to the creepiness of it all.
Isn't it amazing that you can call different CMs at Disney and get totally different answers. Thank goodness for these boards and the chat! I would be lost if I relied on Disney for information - lol!

Fenway and Paco are soo cute!
Thanks for the well wishes! I think the main difference was calling member services at DVC (who wouldn't make the ressies) and calling Disney Dining
We love our chat, don't we? Lots of good information and some entertainment thrown in

I hope you feel better soon! I understand only too well how hard it is to turn over your classroom to a stranger!

This is true! After all, who else, except DISers, would plan their WDW snacks six months in advance???

I can't think of any other group of people who would do that.

I'm a little nervous about making adrs without park hours, so I will probably make some changes accordingly, but who know? They may work
Kidani in November? I can't wait to hear all about it since we are there right after you in December. Are you doing a pre-trippie?
WOW state testing already??? when do you guys get out?? OUrs is not until May. I don't know about a pre-trippie...I may now that i am thinking about it. will let you all know....glad to hear you got yourself some meds..you will be back in the classroom in no time...teachers are an interesting bread of people that way..rest up...big week for you.

It seems according to the CMs at Disney Dining taking a bus to an early ADR prior to park opening is not a good plan. While Marc and I were skyping yesterday I mentioned that we might need to take a taxi to our CP breakfast and he told me that he was looking at car rental! Those of you who know us from dis chat know how we have gone round and round about car rental, me begging and him saying nooooo Honestly I would be happy with a taxi at this point.....


Day number 2 on the sofa......but back to school tomorrow I'm feeling much better
But......while on the sofa I managed to dial the number for Disney Dining and after making ADRs through June 4th yesterday I thought I would be able to book one for June 5th today! Welllll..........no go on call number 1 the CM told me that I needed to call back on March 2. Hmmmmm, I didn't argue, well not much, but I was ever so pleasant about it. So I decided to end the call and try again. Next call they ask for my conformation number on our reservations and bingo I get an ADR for June 5th!
Here are our ADRs so far:
May 30 we arrive no flight purchase yet so no ressie yet....
May 31 4:35 LTT this is an EMH late night at MK but when we were there last year over the same weekend it was deserted walked on to the rides
June 1 Cape May 5:35 (we move to bcv today)
June 2 CP bfast 8:55 (not as early as I wanted so may try for another day)
June 3 Le Cellier 5:25
June 4 1900 Park Fare 4:50
June 5 Ohana 6:40 (wanted a later time but nothing available , was hoping for wishes viewing from the beach) we'll see if this one get switched.....

What I really don't understand is the ADR rules some CMs are doing the 100 day rolling and some are enforcing the 90 days from the day of arrival. I don't get it

I don't know why the CMs aren't on the same page either. I think that is why I had a hard time getting Le Cellier, it doesn't seem fair for some people able to book 90 days out and others 100 out. Oh well.

We had an 8:30 ADR for Crystal Palace last trip and there was a bus that left Pop Century at a little after 7AM and we were able to get to MK before they let people in for the 8AM ADRs. The bus stopped at each resort that guests on the bus had breakfast ADRs for. We stopped at Poly, WL, Grand Floridian, Contemporary and then finally MK. It worked very well for us.

Do you think we will be able to make an 8:10 ressie at CP taking the bus?
