    Hi, Erin. Is the time frame for making ADRs still 90 days out, or is it now back to 180 days?Also, if I make ADRs online, what time can I begin making them on the day that I am eligible? If I am staying onsite, can I make a CRT ADR within the 10day window?

    Hi Rebecca,

    Currently the reservation window for dining, tours, and recreation is 90 days. This will be changing to 180 days on October 27, 2009.

    If you are making your dining reservations online, you can begin at 6:00 a.m. If you're making your dining reservations over the phone, the lines open at 7:00 a.m. at 407-WDW-DINE. Either method works 7 days a week.

    If you are staying at a WDW hotel, you can take advantage of the 180 +10 rule, which will give you a bit of an advantage when making reservations at popular meals such as Cinderella's Royal Table.

    For those who are wondering - the 180 + 10 rule means that guests staying at Disney-owned resorts can make the meal reservations for their entire trip (up to 10 days) on the first day of their 180 day window. So instead of having to call back multiple times, a Disney resort guest can call at the 180-day mark to make reservations for not only meals on the first day of their trip, but also for meals on the following nine days. In reality this means that Disney guests who are staying for 10 days can make the reservations for the last day of their trip 190 days in advance, rather than just 180. This gives them a boost in their ability to get reservations for hard to come by meals.

    Good luck with your planning!
