    I have a question about ADR. When making reservations, I took a later dinner at Ohana because it was the only one available. Should I keep calling the reservation hotline to see if something earlier becomes available or should I try when I get to Orlando?

    Hi Gretchen!

    I know that it can sometimes be frustrating when it comes time to book those ADRs. A lot of the more popular restaurants book up very quickly so it helps to be flexible with the time you wish to eat and sometimes even the day.

    The good news is that you were able to secure a reservation, so if all else fails at least you have something booked at Ohana. I would recommend calling Disney dining as often as is convenient for you. Many times people will change their dining plans and cancel existing reservations so you never know when you may luck out and an earlier ADR may open up for you. If you haven't had success in finding a new reservation before you leave for your vacation, you can keep trying up until the day of your meal. I know it can be a hassle to call over and over again, but your persistence just may pay off!

    Good luck and enjoy your upcoming vacation!
