    Starting to plan Sept22-Sept30 trip for my son's 4th Bday!! I want it to be extra special!! I understand that I can make ADR up to 6months ahead. Will the reservation system open March22 at midnight for ADR on Sept22?

    Bonjour Viviane, 

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for asking us another question. Our boys are about the same age, so I totally understand being excited for your little man’s birthday!

    You can start booking you dining reservations for your family’s upcoming vacation to Walt Disney World Resort up to 180 days in advance. You’ll actually be able to make all of your reservations for the length of your stay if you’ve chosen to stay in a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel. 

    If I understand your question correctly, you’ll be arriving on September 22 of this year. By my calculations, you should be able to start making your dining reservations as of 6:00 am (online) or 7:00 am (by phone) March 26 of this year. That being said, I’m notoriously terrible at math so PLEASE double-check my calculation! There are several online calculators that you can use in order to do so; a quick Google search of “ADR Calculators” should do the trick. You can also start logging in to your My Disney Experience account as of March 22 in order to see whether your reservation window has opened yet, but don’t be surprised if it only happens on the 26th. 

    I hope my answer helps you plan your son’s amazing birthday adventure in Walt Disney World Resort. Please don’t hesitate to come back and see us if you have any other questions!

    Have a Magical Day,
