    I have a hard time booking dining with the Princess-preferably with Cinderella at the Castle on week of Oct-1 to October 5, 2012 and it's my daughter's wish on her 7th birthday. Any tips on how I can make her dream come true?

    Hi, Minerva! !  Since your trip is quickly approaching, I would check the website everyday for cancellations.  As Guests' plans change, so do their dining reservations.  You never know when an opening might occur.  I would be especially vigilant in the days right before your trip.  With the new credit card guarantee, there will probably be some openings in the day or two before the day you want to dine.  Let me explain.  To ensure consistent Guest service, a one-day cancellation policy—the credit card guarantee policy—applies to reservations at many of the dining venues. If Guests' plans change, there will be cancellations to avoid this fee. If you're still needing reservations when you arrive, seek help from the Guest Services at your resort.  If all else fails, you can always try to get a walk-up reservation, too.  I'm sending pixie-dusted wishes that you get the reservations you want.  Happy planning and have a Magical vacation!
