    We are expecting one terrific family vaca June 26, 2008! However, I'm getting nervous that I won't get reservations at many of the places we wanted to dine. How difficult is it to dine somewhere (park, resort, etc) if I couldn't get an ADR? Impossible?

    Hi there Linda,

    Never say never!!!!!!  I don't want to put a damper on your day, but I will tell you that it will be very difficult to maybe get the reservations that you would like.  It is very close to your arrival date at "the Happiest Place...ever!!" and most of the popular dining experiences do fill up (up to 180 days prior to your reservation date).  On one of my recent trips I was on the dining plan and could not get any of the reservations that I wanted...I was quite disappointed, but I called and called and called some more and when I was in my room at the resort called yet again!  From my resort room I was lucky to secure almost all of the reservations I was looking for due to cancelations.  While this is probably not typical, it does happen and if you keep trying from now until your arrival and during your stay, you may find some luck like I did!  Maybe I received a special sprinkling of Pixie Dust while there...who knows!?!?!?!  Don't give up and no matter what, I am sure you will experience a terrific family vacation...look at where you are going, how can you go wrong?

    Good luck, Have a magical day!
