    Hi...from someone who enjoys this panel so much...with my upcoming trip in just 24 DAYS !...still trying to get a few more DR of my choice...the only character one I can get on our first night is Garden Grove, I dont hear much talk about is it?


    I am willing to be the bad guy here. All I can say is keep trying to get other reservations, or consider trying to get a table by walking up to a restaurant like Chef Mickey's or Restaurant Akershus.

    While I have heard that they have put efforts in recently to improve this, I have never been a fan. I was really disappointed with my dinner experience there more than once, and don't plan on returning anytime soon.

    Again, I have heard that positive changes are underfoot, and the other restaurants in the Swan Resort have been really improved over the last few years. Il Mulino is the best example, where really fantastic Abbruzzi region Italian fare is available, replacing what was already a pretty good traditional Italian restaurant. So don't cancel. Try it out. But if you can get another Advanced Dining Reservation, that is great.

    Also, make sure you try to get a reservation, even once you are well into the actual vacation. Cancellations happen often, so you do stand a chance of getting lucky.

    Have a magical (and delicious) vacation!
