    Hello again Panel! I need a special tip. Since our arrival is on Thanksgiving, my goal is to reserve CMickey dinner, I know will be hard to get because the 10 days prior reservations, any tips? should I stay up until 12:01am? Any backup if I cant get in?

    Hello, Glorian!  Welcome to the Moms Panel!

    I simply LOVE Chef Mickey's and I can certainly understand how anxious you are to secure a reservation. There is nothing better than dining with Mickey and the Gang!  

    All you can do is to be prepared to begin your reservation requests as soon as your 180 day mark begins. Please do not keep yourself up until 12:01 a.m.  Online reservations begin at 6:00 a.m. while phone reservations begin at 7:00 a.m.  Set your alarm and make sure to be ready to go.  You will want to input various times in order for the system to search out all dinner openings.  If you are not able to secure a spot, don't give up.  Keep calling daily.  Guests are now being charged for not showing up for their reservation times, so many guests are making sure to call in to cancel in order to avoid fees.  I will send some pixie dust your way in hopes that you will be able to enjoy this dining experience.

    ~ Have a MAGICAL day and "SEE YOU REAL SOON"! ~
