Going to WDW 9/24-9/29 booked at the last minute and have only been able to get ADR to Hoop de doo revue. Want to get ADR for CRT and have been told to keep calling back. Any advice on best time to call to increase chances? Why does WDW not have wait list?
- Asked by Michael from NJ on 8/19/2008
Hi Michael! Yes, that's the best advice. I have personally called and not gotten reservations, but have called or walked-up the day of and been able to get in. Folks cancel every minute of every day. I'm sure that you have figured out already that reservations for Cinderella's Royal Table
are very hard to get. I actually called once on exactly the 180th day at 7:00 am and it was sold out by the time a cast member got on the line at 7:04.
I have wondered why they don't keep a waiting list too, but I think the answer is obvious. There really is no incentive. That restaurant will always be full with little to no effort. If you cancel, within seconds, someone else is usually on the line taking that slot.
So yes, keep calling and in the meantime, I would reserve a Princess meal at Akershus Royal Table
at Epcot.Those reservations are easier to get and I think that meal is equally fun. You get swarmed by Princessi and the gothic architecture of the building is very regal as well! Have a great time planning and a magical trip!
