Booking Candlelight Dinner Pkg

Can someone give me a quick primer on the first day when I can book the CP pkg? We are thinking of beginning our trip on Dec 3rd and seeing CP the next night, Dec 4th. Sorry to be such a dummy, but lately we've booked dining after the 90 day window, so it didn't matter. And will we be able to book online or still need to call in?

Disney has yet to make any official announcement about how they are handling the dinner packages this year. Very dissapointing

No wonder I couldn't find anything. I spoke to someone in reservations (not dining, though) and he told me all dining was 90 days out. I asked him if that included CP and he said yes. I was hoping I hadn't missed the good reservations!

So, I guess I'll stay tuned!

90 days before the day you want to dine. Same as other ADRs and since the Processional is during some of the free dining it is going to be tough.

It should be 90 days from the first day of your ressie if staying on property plus 10 days . I can get ADRs on Sept 12 and am told I can book CP for Dec 14 then.

So it doesn't matter any more when your reservation starts ?? Everybody will have an equal shot for a particular day - or so it looks!!

This is not true if the 90+10 rule applies.

This is one particular thing where I don't think the 90+10 rule should apply, nor do I think it's very fair. Just my honest opinion. I personally think that they should do 90 days period for this reservation. I would be willing to wait another 2-3 days to give everyone an equal opportunity.

I agree. These are very polpular packages and many locals book these. They may alienate locals since they wouldn't be able to book the 90+10.

They also need to segregate this reservation inventory from that that doesn't include the show. This is easily done ahead of time by segregating out the times and releasing on a single date. I guess it could still be done at the 90 day mark. They will need to announce something soon since the 90 day reservation mark for the first performance is fast approaching.

I have heard 90 days and 90 days +10 for resort guests from CMS. I have called a couple times per week for the last few weeks and have always gotten these 2 answers.
