    Planning for Dec 16 - 22. I've read that you should make dinner reservations 6 MONTHS in advance! Is it too late to get decent dinner reservations? HELP!

    Hi, Lisa! Yes, it's true.  Guests have been making reservations for December Advanced Dining Reservations since June, but you may not be totally out of luck.  I would start making reservations today.  Be willing to eat at non-peak times.  For those restaurants that are already full, I would check the website everyday for cancellations.  As Guests' plans change, so do their dining reservations.  You never know when an opening might occur.  I would be especially vigilant in the days right before your trip.  Since some reservations are pre-paid and others require a credit card guarantee, there may be some openings in the day or two before the day you want to dine.  A cancellation policy applies and will result in charges if the Guest cancels with insufficient notice. If Guests' plans change, there will be cancellations to avoid paying for a meal they aren't attending. If you're still needing reservations when you arrive, seek help from the Guest Services at your resort.  If all else fails, you can always try to get a walk-up reservation, too.  I'm sending pixie-dusted wishes that you get the reservations you want.  Happy planning and have a Magical vacation!
