    Hi Andi, Going on 7 night Disney Cruise followed by 5 nights @ Beach Club. Do I make ADR 180 days from beginning of cruise OR from beginning of Beach Club stay? 9 people (ages 4 and up)- can I get help as a grand gathering?

    Hi, Jana!

    That sure sounds like a dream vacation to me! You'll feel pampered onboard Disney Cruise Line (DCL) and then you'll be right in the center of the action at the Beach Club at Walt Disney World (WDW). My very favorite pool on WDW property is Stormalong Bay.

    You can start making Advanced Dining Reservations (ADR) 180 days in advance of your WDW vacation from your resort check-in day -- and for up to 10 days afterward. You can call 407-WDW-DINE once your  180-day window commences, but you may want to call the Grand Gatherings line at 407-939-7526 ahead of time to get a number and to hear of your special Grand Gatherings options. I hope this helps you plan.

    Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation. Bon voyage!
