    When to make ADR? I know it is 180 in advance, however, can I make reservations for my whole trip 180 days from day one, or do I have to wait make Monday's reservation when I reach 180, then wait until the next day to make Tuesdays, then Wedndesdays, etc.

    Hi Mindy,

    The answer to this depends on whether you're staying at a Disney hotel or off site. 

    If you're staying off site, the reservations can be made up to 180 days exactly from when you want the reservation. As you said, make Monday's reservation on day one, make Tuesday's reservation on day two, etc.

    However, if you're staying at a Disney-owned hotel, you can make all your reservations at once - up to ten days worth. So on Monday you could make reservations for your entire trip. This is one of the HUGE advantages of staying on WDW property. You'll need to have your resort confirmation number on hand to take advantage of this benefit. 

    Good luck with your planning. Please let us know if you have additional questions.
