    My ADR date is March 1st. Can I make ADR's for my dates before booking the vacation? Holding out for possible free dining which usually isn't offered until April/May and would like to get all of my choices locked down.

    Hi Jaynee!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    You can book your dining reservations before any resort package is purchased.  Anyone can book a dining reservation 180 days out, regardless to whether they are staying on property or not.  

    I think it would be very smart to get your dining reservations locked in.  They can fill up quickly, but you can modify or cancel if you change your plans later.  (you can cancel up to 24 hours in advance of your reservation)

    Keep in mind that discounts can often be applied to existing reservations (if they are valid for your travel dates), so you may want to lock in your resort as well.  I have made my package reservation and added a special offer to it when it became available several times.  

    I hope this helps!  Please let me know if you have any other questions.
