    How difficult will it be to get an ADR at Le Cellier. We will be in WDW 11/28 - 12/5 would like a reservation on 12/3 either lunch or dinner. Should I try the on-line booking or call first thing in the morning?

    The fabulous folks at touringplans.com (the same people that write the Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World) did a study which they published just a few weeks ago. Their team tried to get reservations at about 30 different restaurants, trying to come up with a scientific evaluation of how far in advance you really have to call to get a reservation. Their research found that Le Cellier is currently the #1 most difficult reservation to get at Walt Disney World. In order to dine there, you have to reserve the full 90 days in advance.

    To make sure you get the reservation you want, you absolutely need to make your reservation at the first possible opportunity. The online reservations open each day at 6:00 a.m. EST, while the Disney Dining phone reservation line opens daily at 7:00 a.m. EST. This being the case, I would get up early and start by trying to reserve online. If you are making several reservations, do the Le Cellier reservation first.

    Good luck!
