A Disneyholic's brain works in mysterious ways. I mean, who in their right mind would get excited about making dining reservations at 4am (PST)???
The Disney World reservation system allows people to make what's known as Advanced Dining Reservations 90 days before their desired dining date. Members of the Disney Vacation Club, of which I am one, are allowed to make dining reservations 90 days +10, meaning we can make reservations for the first 10 days of our trip at the 90 day mark of our arrival date, instead of calling daily.
So the plan is for me to try and call when the phone lines open (7am EST, 4am PST) and try to get reservations to:
San Angel Inn
50s Prime Time Diner
Donald's Safari Breakfast at Tusker House
Chefs de France
Tea @ the Gardenview Lounge (Grand Floridian)
I also need to call the T-Rex restaurant in Downtown Disney. This is not a Disney-owned restaurant, so reservations are separate.
(My son, being silly at T-Rex, 2008)
We'll be there from 8/17-29, and I'm actually being light on the sit-down restaurants this time. But like all other true Disney World Disneyholics, just the act of making these reservations is enough to get me VERY excited!
