    Hi Jo! Arrive at WDW 25/9/09 for 14nights. Calling to make ADRs on 27/6/09 for first 10 days (up to & inc 4/10/09 i think?) Do you think it will be possible to get ADR for CRT on 29/9/09? What about remaining 4days - do I need to call daily

    Ooh Emma not long till you can call for your dining reservations. We tend to go to Disney for a fortnight too and the way I make my reservations for the whole 14 days is to call when I am exactly 90 days from my check in date and book the first 10 days. I then call back 4 days later and make the final 4, this way I only need to make 2 calls.(if you happen to get a Cast Member that says that's not possible hang up and dial again)  I may have told you in a previous question but to get cheap international calls you can call 08448-610-610 and then when prompted dial in the US dining number 001-407-939-3463, this will cost roughly 1p a minute and is much cheaper than standard international calls. Or find a friend who, like me, is with talktalk and gets free international calls ;-)

    If you follow a few simple steps you should be able to get a reservation at Cinderella's Royal Table, I always have. Firstly phone at exactly 7am EST, midday for us, when you are 90 days away. Once through to the Cast Member ask for the CRT reservation first, try and be flexible with your time, for example if you would like a lunch time ask for any reservation between 1pm and 2pm. Also have a back up day. As you're going for 2 weeks I expect you'll go to Magic Kingdom more than once so be ready to be flexible. If that all fails call again when you are exactly 90 days from the day you want to dine at CRT as I've heard that they then open more reservation times, so worth a try!

    Can I also suggest something for you, on your first day in Disney you and your family will be up very early due to jet lag. How about booking a very early breakfast reservation at somewhere like the Crystal Palace in the Magic Kingdom so you can enter the park before everyone else. It's great walking through an empty park and a great way to start your holiday. This only works for parks that are not having early extra magic hours though!

    If there's anything else I can help with please ask again,
