I have some ADR's to cancel during the week of 11/9 - 11/15. I know that some wish families don't have the option of choosing reservations 180 days out, so I want to offer them to any wish families first. I don't have any 'Ohana, Akershus, Cinderella's Royal Table, or Be Our Guest to release, but I do have a couple Chef Mickey's and 1900 Park Fare (both character meals) plus a few others. Please PM me if you are interested in what I might have, otherwise I will offer them on the November cancellation thread. I would like to clear these reservations out this weekend. Thanks!

They have a microwave, small stove, dishwasher, I do not believe an oven. I'm Pretty sure a toaster. Honestly we never used any of it except the microwave.

I have a video on my fb of the villa, it's under Mindy Carpenter and was posted Sept 29, 2013 if you wanna check it out. I just went and watched it. We did have a toaster and a blender. No oven, and stove is like a 2 burner, counter top

Awesome - thanks! We're just trying to think through breakfast ideas for days we want to leave earlier than they have food available.

LOL, DH just suggested ordering pizza and having it for breakfast, too. Never would have thought of snagging breakfast cart items for next day, though. Thanks for the idea.

Not a problem!!! See, great minds think alike!!! That's what's great!! If you can have ice cream for breakfast, why not pizza? Lol

If you haven't see this already, here is a FAQ link, tells what all the villa has!!!

Question for everyone....we are going Nov 17th to Nov 21st and haven't been able to get a reservation for one place. Is this normal? Will cancellations pop up?

We were looking for the following:
Hollywood and Vine @ Hollywood Studio for 11-21
Be Our Guest for dinner for 11/19 or 11/21 or would even take lunch on 11/19.

Would love any suggestions.

Cancellations do pop up. Keep trying, and make sure you let them know your a wish family. I know people that couldn't get res. so they went and asked, and GOT IN!!!! So, don't give up!!! People do start booking at midnight the day they can!

I think be our guest for lunch is counter service and you don't need a reservation?

And people book reservations 180 days out (farthest you can) which kind of makes it a pain when you don't get your wish dates until a few months before you leave.

I tried 180 days out from our trip dates and by 11am there was nothing. I'm thinking of calling Disney and seeing if they can put us on a wait list or something:

Thank you everyone! I was getting nervous. This is all so new and exciting. I will keep trying and if not I will ask them while we are there.

I thought I heard Lunch at Be Our Guest is no reservations. I have been reading all these amazing posts are so informative. The only catch to that the Beast is only there at dinner. Which is ok.

I am so thankful for this board and everyone. Planning away!

BOG for dinner is one of the hardest-to-get ADRs. The best advice I've seen is to keep trying, even once you arrive.
