I have not been to the party before either. We are going for the first time. It will be our first family vacation in 15 years although my husband isnt going.

I made my ADRs at 3am my time!!! But it went smoothly, and no sitting on hold!
Online booking opens up at 6am, 1 hr before the phone lines open. So it's a good jump on those that are calling.

Glad you got what you wanted. I think online Adrs makes us more obsessed than usual! I keep playing with it hoping that something else will jump out at me!

1 ADR down, 2 to go!

I got my CRT ADR today! I barely slept a wink last night, afraid I would oversleep! I finally got out of bed at 5:30 and sat at the computer so I could press the reservations button at 6:01 precisely! So we have a CRT ADR at 8:25 on 10/17.

I'll be trying for California Grill on Wednesday, and Chef Mickey's on Friday.

Good Luck on getting you ressies! I was pretty happy with my outcome. I had to switch dates and times for Chef Mickey's but I got them for a nice dinner.

Smile Another October traveller

I am also new to the boards, and enjoying sharing in everyone's excitement and trip planning madness. I am rather relieved to find that I am not alone in my obsessive-compulsive ADR planning & adjustment. My hubby thinks I have lost my marbles.

We are going Sept 30 - Oct 7, staying at the BLT, MK-view 1 BR villa. Have been to DW one time previously, in 2007. I'm really looking forward to the convenience of being so close to MK & Epcot. We are going to MNSSHP on Oct. 6th -- thought it would be a fitting grande finale to our week!

Last night mananged to tweak my last ADR to the time I wanted, and now am completely happy with all my ressies, so I hope to resist temptation and stay away from the online booking now.

Thanks for all the great advice and insight from those who know the "Mouse House" (as my 4-year old calls it) so well!

Happy 90 Day Day


Ok, so I am just back from camping. I didn't have to stand on top of my car to make my ADR's, but I did have to get my big ol' butt on my daughters bicycle (do you know how long it's been???) and ride uphill to the playground. There I am, at 6:55am on a bench, with all my DIS stuff laid out around me making my ressies. I start with my first one - Akersush Princess Breakfast, and the lady says "you have to secure that with a credit card" WTH...I totally forgot that part. So, I make all of them except that one. Ride all they way (down hill this time) back to our campsite, get the credit card, and ride all the way back (uphill) to get that one and also the Segway Tour scheduled. Way too much exercise for making ADRS.

First of all,returning you to shore was never part of our agreement. Second, you are not a pirate, so the Pirate's Code does not apply. And third, the Pirate's Code is more of a set of what you'd call 'guidelines' than actual rules. Welcome aboard the Black Pearl.
