    visiting DW for our 33rd anniversary. How do we plan our DDP ressies for Sat Nov 28 and M-F Nov 30-Dec4 the 90 days out? the calendar will not come out until Sept. Will it be too late for Calif Grill during the wk? itinerary? want 2 in MK, 2 in Epcot

    Janet,

    Don't worry so much about planning park days based on Extra Magic Hours. At that time of year it will be busy in all four parks. Plan your days based on what order you want to see the parks, and how much time you want at each park. For me, starting off the first day at the Magic Kingdom is a must. I also like to have my last evening in Epcot, ending with a nice dinner and IllumiNations to put a big exclamation point on the vacation!

    As for making Advanced Dining Reservations, on the day that you are 90 days out from your arrival day, call to make ALL your reservations. That's right, ALL OF THEM. Many Disney resort guests don't know that they can make up to ten days worth of reservations on that first call-in day. So if you are calling 90 days out from November 28th, you can also make reservations for November 29-30, as well as December 1-7. To improve your chances of getting difficult reservations, leave them to later in your vacation, thus reducing the "competition" that could have called in.

    Please send me any follow-up questions!

    Have a magical vacation!
