    Our 180 day window for making ADR is on April 20th. What time can I start making ADRs online that day? And is it true it's 180 days +10 for on site guests so I can try for a BOG ADR for any day of our stay? Thanks!

    Hi Kelsey,

    I like the way you think. I just made Advanced Dining Reservations for our fall trip last week and now I am even more excited for our upcoming vacation!

    You will be able to make your reservations 180 days in advance of your arrival date plus up to 10 days after that if you are staying in a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel.

    Make your reservations online starting at 6:00 a.m. Eastern Time or by telephone beginning at 7:00 a.m. Eastern Time using the phone number listed at the bottom of the page I linked. You will need your Resort Confirmation number to make reservations by phone.

    I suggest starting at the end of your dates and working backwards to make sure you get any popular dining options you hope for, such as Be Our Guest Restaurant. If for some reason you can't find what you are looking for online, I suggest calling and speaking with a Cast Member who will be able to help you.

    Finally, if you don't get everything you want right away, all is not lost! I have been able to snag some great reservations on short notice. You never know when someone will make a cancellation!

    Sending lots of dining pixie dust your way, Kelsey. Good luck and feel free to let us know if we can help you in any other way!

    Happy planning,

    Andrea U.
