I'm so excited, I just had to share with someone! I've been wanting to get in at Hoop De Do Review for our first night at Disney (which is also our 5th anniversary), and today I scored a reservation!!! :boogie: Now if I can just get in for the character breakfast at Tusker House, I'll be a happy woman.

If you haven't gotten the ADR's you want, don't give up- keep on calling!

oooh congratulations!!!! Have a wonderful time!!!

That happened to us last year ~ we had a last minute opportunity for Billy and I to go to WDW while DH had a class down there. I ended up being able to get every ADR I wanted ~ even breakfast at the castle. Just keep calling!!!

That's great!! I haven't been able to get the two ADRs that we wanted (Garden Grill and Tusker House breakfast) for our trip next month so send some ADR luck our way!! (Yes, I'll admit that I probably waited too long to call!)

Thanks guys, and Lori, here's the closest smily I can find to pixie dust for ya! LOL :cheerleader1: What's with that darn Tusker House?!? I'm going to keep calling every day, and hope for the best. Not that we don't have like 4 other character meals already, but DS really loves the classic characters.

Did you ever decide on a resort?

This is totally OT but how funny we're all Lori's :)

Can't accuse our parents of creativity, can ya?

We decided on the Swan because we were at the 45 day mark for our WL reservation and I needed to make a decision. The WL rate wasn't that amazing (it is cheaper during value season), I didn't really want to shell out the money for 1-day tickets, and the Swan has such an awesome location, so the Swan it is. I'd love to stay at WL some day, but maybe when the kids are a little older and can sleep in the bunk beds vs. tripping over a pack n play.

Word must be out on Tusker House and Garden Grill - those were relatively unknown and unpopular last year! I wonder if a lot of people are traveling on the free dining bounceback promotion, keeping sit-down restaurants a little busier than usual this time? Oh, well. We currently have ADRs for lunch at Crystal Palace, which we know is good eats but crazy, and Hollywood & Vine for lunch, which we've never been to. DS2 loves the Little Einsteins, so that one is for him!

And we all spell it right, to boot!

You can be an honorary Lori if you want - the more, the merrier!

:ROTFLMAO: over the Lori's!!! That is too funny!!! Especially with the spelling- I hardly ever meet anyone who spells it that way. We may catch up to all of the Beths at this rate!

I feel like we should assign numbers or last initials like we used in grade school.

Momof3Labs Lori, ;) I just had a thought- we could join forces on the ADR's. I'm going to keep calling for TH pretty much every day, and I'd be happy to ask for yours as well. I'm guessing you need a table for 4, but I don't know your date requirements. Let me know if that sounds good to you. Also, have you checked disboards dining thread? People post the ADR's they cancel so that other dis'ers can snap them up.

Congrats on finally deciding! I heard there are some pins going around for free dining in December too, and I keep hoping one will pop up in my email.
