    Hi Erin.TYfor the last response. If im not mistaken ADRs were 90 days in advance. I know its now 180.Ive seen something about 180+10?Im confused.Arrive8/21when can i make ADRs.Best way/time to hopefully get CRT/HDDR/LUAU?Phone/online?

    Disney has tinkered with the reservation window several times in the past few years. The current window is 180 days in advance. However, guests staying at the Disney resort hotels can take advantage of the 180 + 10 rule. You can read all about this in the posts found HERE, HERE, and HERE.

    For an arrival date of August 21, 2011, you can begin making your reservations on February 22, 2011. Guest can find their reservation window start date by consulting the independent website at (The "ps" in that name stands for "priority seating" -- which is what they used to call "advanced dining reservations".)

    I've become a big fan lately of making my dining reservations online. Recent system improvements allow you see what all your options are for each meal. VERY helpful. You should know that the Disney Dining phone operators come active at 7:00 am EST, while the online system rolls over to taking reservations for the next available day at 6:00 am. This gives folks reserving online a bit of a head start over those reserving by phone. To make sure you get the reservations you want, I would be at the computer at 6:00 am on the first day of your reservations window. I must confess that at times when very specific reservations were of critical importance to me, I've had several family members lined up side by side at computers at the appointed hour, giving us the maximum opportunity for success.

    Good luck!
