Disney Help!!!

I am planning a Disney trip for June. And I'm confused, panicy and have almost decided to bribe the children into not going!!

If you have any helps, pointers, ideas, charts, maps, logs or journals you could loan me I would SO VERY MUCH appreciate it.

I was looking at making a reservation at Cinderella's Royal Table for breakfast and it says you have to make them 180 days out. AAAAHHHHH, I'm 154 days out! Have I missed the window for reservations? See what I mean? I need HELP!!!!

If you don't want to comment, you can email me at cooljules143 at or message me on facebook.

Please help a girl out!

Use the fast passes. They are great for not having to stand in long lines. Also, get there when the park opens. Go to the back of the parks and work your way to the front riding rides. This will help a lot. Your kids will love Disney.

I've been to Disney so many times, I've lost count! For the Cinderella's Royal Table, go ahead and try to call... the key is to be extremely flexible. You may have to have a very early or very late lunch/dinner. If you are unable to get ressies, then check at the desk at the castle on the days you're at Magic Kingdom. They will occasionally have walk-in spaces available. That restaurant is actually very small, so the reservations go quickly. Just remember- flexibility!

A couple of great websites for Disney are and WDWmagic has some wonderful webboards that can give you some inside info about things. We've found that the Birnbaum's guidebook tends to be the most comprehensive, without so much personal opinion written into the text.

Fast Passes are definitely a key thing. They go quickly for rides like Toy Story Midway Mania (at the studios), all the "mountain" rides (at Magic Kingdom), Expedition Everest (Animal Kingdom), and Test Track and Soarin' (Epcot). So, if those are must-do rides, go to those places first and get your fastpass.

Hope you have a great time!

btw... you don't know me- I know your sister Abby... I was working at GABC when you got married there.
