Hi all - we're a family of four now (DD is just 8 weeks old) and we will be at the World in September during the free dining plan offer. We don't personally care for Chef Mickey's, but recently our neighbors were able to book their trip to go with us. They are family of four also (DD's are 5 and 11) and are newbies to WDW. Being that I want to provide them with an exceptional trip to remember, I was thinking that we should have dinner at Chef Mickey's on our first Saturday there (this is check-in day for us and we are travelling so dinner is the only option). I think they would love the dining experience and it would kick off our week of adventure in the perfect WDW magical way. I keep calling to try to get an ADR (we would take a split table) but nothing is open. Is it possible for us to get seated if we don't have an ADR (okay, anything is possible - but is it likely?) - I will keep calling every day between now and then of course, but in case nothing opens up, what is your best guess? We have talked about doing Boma for dinner which they are interested in, but I wanted to surprise them with the CM dinner if possible.
(I want to do something extra special for them because I don't want to feel as guilty later in our trip when I score four points with our dear friend "BEVERLY" on our trip to EPCOT.
