    Can I make ADR before I have purchased park tickets or made my resort reservations? We don't want to miss out on the character dining!


    Thanks for visiting the Moms Panel!

    Yes, you can make a dining reservation without purchasing park tickets or having a resort reservation. In fact, you can make them up to 180 days in advance online at under Things to Do. There, you can choose your restaurant, date and time. Last October, Disney began requiring a credit card for some table-service reservations, so be prepared to give one if asked.

    Enjoy your Character Meal!

My family of 6 appreciates Disney's value! Although Ft. Wilderness is our second home, we've enjoyed the resorts for business, reunions and romantic getaways. For me, Disney also means dining: last count, I'd eaten at 55 restaurants around the World! Learn More About Whitney
