    I'm panicked! Planning to call for ADR on Tues, 27th. Are the park calendars out for March? Don't have park hoppers so want ADRs on the days when parks are open early/late, as that's when we'll be at those parks. Also, suggest online or phone to make ADRs?

    Hi Amy,

    Park hours for March (and April) 2010 have, in fact, been posted.  You can find them by clicking HERE.  In my experience, on busy "dining line" days, the key to getting your reservations is to start calling early, and be persistent.  I find that I will generally get through with little problem, even if I need to wait on hold for a bit.  Another tip is to be as organized as possible.  I have a list of my reservation "wishes" by date and time, and a backup (or two) in the even that my first choice is not available.  In addition, I have a credit card ready for any reservations that require a guarantee and a pen for jotting down reservation numbers.  I have used both the dining telephone line (407-WDW-DINE) and the online reservation system, and think both are great.  However, on super busy days, I find calling works better.  I have seen the online system operate a bit slowly when many users are accessing it at the same time.

    Good luck getting your top picks for your March vacation!  Have a wonderful trip!
