    Another question.... I made our family's room reservations and was given my 180 days-out date for ARD's, May 19th. I'm going to be on the phone first thing that day to be sure I get my 3yo DS her CRT ARD... what time can I start calling?

    Hi Lisa,

    I always have such a mixed feeling of excitement and anxiety when I am approaching my 180 mark for reservations. I love that it is time to continue with our Disney planning, but have such a fear of not getting my call through in time to get that list of must have reservations.

    Disney's reservation line 407-939-3463 begins taking reservations each morning at 7:00 am EST. Reservations can also be made online at but I prefer to call and speak to someone. I like to start calling a little early (just in case I get a Cast Member with a fast watch) and I make sure to cross all my fingers and keep my lucky penny nearby.

    Good luck!
