    Hi Doug, A.K.A. Planning Guru! Staying @ B.C. 4/26-5/3 2010 W/ P.H & DDP. Res.can be made 10/28, which is faster on-line or phone?When will park schedule be available for my travel dates? Will I have better luck res. CRT toward end of stay w/ + 10 day


    Thanks for the title!

    We have no official word of when they are going to start posting 180 days/6 months worth of advance park schedules, but it is assumed that they are going to be posted in time for you to be able to review them before your Advanced Dining Reservation window opens.

    As for what is faster, phone or online, the phone is faster, but I like to use both. For my trip recently I did a bit of both. Here is what I did (and I think you should do);

    On the day that you can start making ADRs, before the 7am East Coast Time Zone phone call start time, go ahead and try to make some online reservations for the harder-to-get meals. Then call at 7 and make all of the ones you need.

    Finally, yes, you are going to have a better chance of getting an ideal reservation time for Cinderella's Royal Table if you put it to later in your vacation, and take advantage of the +10 reservation benefit.

    Please send me more questions as we get closer to the big day!

    Have a magical (and delicious) vacation!
