    When I call to try for a reservation at Cindy's Castle should I try for the last day of my trip (180 + 6) or one of my first days? I want to have the best opportunity for my two princesses to dine in the castle! Thanks!

    I would absolutely call right away in the morning (7:00 eastern) when you are 180 days away from your first full day at WDW.  In fact, when we tried for those highly sought after reservations, my husband and I would both call on our cell phones to increase our chances.  When we didn't get in on our first try, we'd try again the 2nd day and so on.  With those repeated attempts, we were always lucky!

    Also, when we neared the 180 days mark, I usually called 407-WDW-DINE to double check the first day I could call just to be safe in case I had miscalculated the date.  

    Good luck!  And you may want to make a back-up reservation for the Princess Storybook meal at Norway's Akershus Royal Banquet Hall in Epcot.  While it isn't quite the same as the castle, it is still a wonderful and equally magical chance to dine with princesses.
