    My family is checking in for a week in Nov, then leaving Disney property for 2 days for a wedding, and then returning for an additional 2 days. Can I book all of my ADRs 180 days before the first check in? Or does a new reservation = new ADR start date?

    Dear Lynsey,

    Thanks for reaching out to us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your great question about planning your Advanced Dining Reservations!

    My family also has a split stay coming up and I can let you know that you are only able to book the Advanced Dining Reservations starting on the two check-in dates. You cannot book through to the end of the second reservation. I was bummed about that too, but of course I understand why they want everyone to have a fair chance. 

    My recommendation would be to schedule some of the most popular reservations towards the end of the dates, to give yourself the best chance of booking exactly what you want. I know that no matter what reservations you end up with, you will have an absolutely magical time!

    Hope that helps!
