    My trip starts 9/14 but I can’t access ADR for my entire trip - when will I have access ?

    Hi, Ann Marie! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    In my opinion, one of the best parts of being on vacation is not having to cook, and on a Walt Disney World Resort vacation, you have so many delicious dining options! Guests are strongly encouraged to make their dining reservations as soon as possible in order to have the best chance of securing tables at their desired times and locations.

    Guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel may make their dining reservations 180 days prior to their arrival, for up to 10 days at a time. If staying elsewhere, you may make your dining reservations 180 days in advance, but only for one day at a time. Ann Marie, if you are not staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel for your upcoming trip, or if the length of your trip exceeds 10 days, perhaps this is why you could not access dining reservations for your entire trip. If that is not the case, and you are still having difficulty with making your reservations, I would recommend calling the dining reservations line to speak with a Cast Member.

    Once you are ready to book those dining reservations, I would highly recommend having a yummy breakfast and a visit with some of your favorite Disney pals at Chef Mickey's. My family has a tradition of starting each of our Walt Disney World Resort vacations with breakfast at Chef Mickey's. Dinner at 'Ohana is another of my family's favorites. Be sure to bring a big appetite and save room for the amazing bread pudding!

    Wishing you a vacation filled with delicious treats! ~Samantha
