    We are planning a surprise christmas morning trip for our kids (8 and 6) and it's our first time visiting.. We have the DxDP and ADRs open for our trip on 6/28. Do ADR's open at 1201 on the 28th or at another time? Thanks so much!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Kristina!

    Hooray for such a magical surprise! What a wonderful way to celebrate an already exciting time. The endless magic of a Walt Disney World Resort vacation will definitely add a little extra pixie dust to the Most Magical Time of the Year.

    You are able to begin making your Advance Dining Reservations up to 180 days in advance online beginning at 6:00 AM EST or by phone beginning at 7:00 AM EST. I usually start online and begin with my most desired reservations first. You may also have an easier time finding coveted reservations for the days later in your trip rather than the first few because of the "+10 day" ability. If I'm not able to get a reservation, I'll try calling at 7:00 AM and if still no availability, I'll keep checking back often as you never know when someone will cancel. 

    Happy planning, Kristina! I'm sending some Advance Dining Reservation pixie dust your way! Please let us know should you have any other questions or concerns.

    Magical Wishes,

Hi-ya, Pals! I'm Lauren, a wife and mother of three who's enjoyed many special occasions at Walt Disney World Resort with my family and friends.

I now have pre-teens who check wait times in the My Disney Experience App just for fun, so I look for any excuse to return "home" often and would love to help you plan a little extra Pixie Dust for your next magical adventure.
