    Having a hard time making ADRs for 5 people. Can always get the times I want for 4 or 6 people (I tried when everything I wanted was unavailable). Would it be wrong to make the ADR for 6 even though I only need space for 5? Would calling be better? Help!

    Hi Jennifer:

    I'm glad you are planning in advance. It never hurts to call the dining line, perhaps the reservationist can help or there have been cancellations resulting in more openings. While frustrating, Disney World needs the correct number of people in your party to seat you at the appropriate table, properly allocate tables for others, and to have the proper count of individuals inside the restaraunt to comply with fire codes. I'm not sure if anything will come of it (and likely nothing will) if you book a table for six but only have a party of five, but you should always let your conscience be your guide.

    Enjoy your vacation.
