Talking Incredibly (Un)Important Dining News!

Why didn't anybody tell me?!
Just started doing ADR's for my May trip.
Reservation numbers have hit a milestone -- they now start with a 5!!
My first reservation number is 5000616xxxxx.

Is that the cost per person or the whole party?

That IS big news! Just curious, where are you dining that you have to reserve four months out? Or do you have a large dining party?

Just being OCD. (Thanks Mindy for correction. What was I thinking? Don't want to know.)
There's no penalty for booking early, and I may as well take care of it now. Some of the places I want to eat will fill up at some point.

Because we all know that people like us cannot be OCD. That’s just not in alphabetical order!

Somebody did advise to keep checking because of before midnight cancellations. It worked for me this week securing NYE Liberty Tree mid afternoon break, I did not realize it had changed to dinner family style but they were kind enough to give me a discount. We had fun inside waiting for our name to be called because they have a checkerboard and my granddaughter challenged a young boy with Winner gets this balloon. I was hoping he would win cause I did not want to carry it around anymore but his family name was called. So we roped it into one of those coat hooks and somehow walked out forgetting it til much later.

So, did you get everything you wanted? We are 32 days out, and have only made 2 ADR’s.

Yeah. I really wanted to try Story Book dining this time, so that one was important. I don’t think we actually have another “must do”. Any “off the beaten path” suggestions?

Check often in days leading up to and during your trip. Stuff always opens up day before and day of. If looking for an odd number of people, add one to make it even (you won’t be charged as long as someone shows up).

Text me and I’ll help look...
