    I'm thinking of Jan 09, everything I'm reading about ADRs is making me think twice about booking only 2 mths in advance. I'd like to do the Hoop dee revue and at least one character dining-princess but I'm getting putoff reading about ADRS. Should we wait?

    All you need to do is call 407-WDW-DINE and find out what is available during the time you want to travel. 

    You can (and often SHOULD) make Advanced Dining Reservations (ADRs) BEFORE you make resort reservations and/or BEFORE you decide to purchase a Dining Plan.  Simply call to make your ADRs, and if the ones you want are available, then you are set.  ADRs can always be linked later to your resort reservation and/or Dining Plan, once all of your other plans are finalized.

    If there aren't enough available ADRs, and this is very important to you and your family, you'll either will have to call back periodically until something opens up (it might, or might not) or perhaps consider postponing your trip until later, when you can make reservations further in advance (ideally 180 days, but often not absolutely necessary).

    Hope that helps. ºoº
