    Need some clarification. My 180 day mark is the 29th. When exactly can I start making ADR's. I thought 6am online and 7am by phone. But the person that booked my package said that I could start making online ADR's at 12:01am. Then when by phone?

    Hi Kris!

    Disney Dining Reservation Day, affectionately referred to as DDR, is a big deal in my household!  It's the best way to ensure those hard to secure reservations such as Be Our Guest and Cinderella's Royal's Table.  In my opinion it is almost essential if you will be visiting during a busy time of year such as Thanksgiving, Christmas or a holiday weekend.

    Disney's online dining reservation for your 180 day mark will open at 6:00 am EST and at 7:00 am EST. If you are a guest staying on property, you can take advantage of the 180 +10.  This means instead of calling or going online 180 days out from each date that you wish to dine, you can make your reservations all at one time.  Currently the new online system is not set up to recognize the 180+10 rule and you will need to call (407) WDW-DINE to make reservations for any days after your 180 out date.  

    I will typically do a trial run call to familiarize myself with all the prompts in order to speak directly with a cast member as quickly as possible.  Also, make sure to book your harder to get reservations first, a few seconds can be the difference to getting that elusive breakfast reservation at Cinderella's Royal Table or dinner reservation at Be Our Guest.

    Thank you for visiting us at Disney Parks Moms Panel! If you need any more help with your planning or have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask!

    Bon Appetit!
