I have one day left until ADR day :mental: Then only 180 days until WDW :bounce:

Is it easier to make them online, or do you have a better chance of getting what you want on the phone? We are not booking anything crazy like the castle, but really want certain places :D Thanks!

If the online system is working correctly then it is very easy to use

Ok..then I have decided I feel cautiously optimistic about using the online system :unsure:

We used it for the first time this year Shelly and it worked so much better and it was so much quicker than the times I have spent an hour + on the phone in the past booking the first 10 days!

I will be sitting here just waiting for the clock to change so I can book my meals :mental: Not because I think I'm going to miss out on something, but just because it is one more step closer to WDW :bounce:

Online is the way that we do it now.

If you can't get any that you want, try again nearer to your trip. They get cancelled a lot. Also try again as soon as you arrive, if there are still any that you don't have. :thumbsup:

Online is soooo much easier than phoning. :yes:

do you have to pay to use the online system or put in a reservation number? or can I just use it?

You can just use it. But you will need your reservation number if you are trying to use the Plus 10 feature.

Well I did get most of it done. We have Crystal Palace, 50's Prime Time, Liberty Tree Tavern, T-Rex, and Chef Mickey's. I tried to get Garden Grill, but couldn't. I've even tried to get it another day thinking I could switch parks, but still couldn't get it. I didn't think it was one of our more popular options, but I guess it is :unsure: So now we are without a place for our anniversary day, so I am back to the drawing board looking at menus :wiggle:

My friend had trouble getting Garden Grill for August - very strange as I didn't think it was one of the more popular/well known places either!

I wonder if you called if there would be availability. It's strange to me that GG is full. I had issues last year with no availability at a place and then called and they had lots of openings.

I did think about doing that. I have the Captain's Grille at the Y&BC now, but I didn't really look into any reviews on it :unsure: I'm sure I will end up changing everything around 100 times by our trip :lol:
