Disney dining still not taking adr's


#1

I just called to make our adr’s for may/june, and the automated system said they are not taking adr’s after march 22nd right now. i called yesterday to make the CRT adr, and the gal said she had no idea when they’d start taking them for further out for other dining spots. :dry: i really want to make the adr’s! I only need 2!!


#2

Hmm, I hope it’s working soon. I wanted to start brainstorming with my husband about ADRs for June. Keep us updated if you hear anything. I hope you get your ADRs soon.


#3

Same here!! I have to make them for our May trip!!


#4

June’s a complete wash. They don’t even have daily schedules up right now.


#5

there aren’t daily schedules up for may yet either, unless it’s come up since 7 this morning. i am getting frustrated - don’t they know there are OCD planners out there???!!!:ninja::tongue:


#6

I am frustrated too. I have all of our ADRs for June ready and waiting…waiting…waiting…:glare:

OCDers do not wait patiently!:ninja::laugh:


#7

Same story here. I had to call DVC member services this week, and they also had no idea when the ADRs would be back up.


#8

i just tried again - not yet…also, trex isn’t taking reservations until after january 5th she said. you can make them then by calling trex directly. i am not meant to make any adr’s this week!!!


#9

I was really hoping by the time our 6 month slot rolled around, everything would be working. I’m so bummed, I’ve already been waiting for 3 months and now I have to wait till March!! :dry: I’ve been checking the schedules too, because I want to tailor our reservations according to which days we’ll be at which park, but no such luck :sad: Whats taking so long?


#10

You know, I am both bummed and relieved. This gives me more time to think about where we are going to be and what we want to eat!


#11

i don’t think you have to wait until march to make them, they just are not accepting any for any dates after march 22 right now. i think they will start taking them for farther out after the 1st of the year. just my guess, based on wishful thinking. :dry:

90 day booking window for dining, tours and reservations to become standard
Dec 23, 2008

Beginning today, there will be a 90 day advance booking window for dining, tours and reservations. This replaces the previous 180 day window.

Any existing reservations made with a longer timeframe will be honored.

Resort bookings continue to be at 500 days, and La Nouba remains at 180 days.

hmmmm…there was a rumor a while ago about the adr’s only being allowed for up to 90 days, but i had thought that was just through the new updating process. wonder if this is the permanent thing now, or if it’s still just being updated. thanks for the info!!


#14

Apparently it’s permanent.

The official line is that guests are making preparations later, and booking less far forward in advance.

I would imagine that’s due to the uncertain economic times.


#15

I have to say that I prefer the 90 day window compared to the 180 day window. Yes, I am a freak planner like the rest of you, but many of our trip are booked closer to the actual vacation! I feel it will make getting ADR’s easier for my family.


#16

Has anyone tried making ADRs for April yet? I called the WDW-DINE number, and the recorded message about no reservations after March 22nd was gone. Anyone found the rumored “online ADR system” yet?


#17

I haven’t yet, but our next visit is probably around April 8 and I’ve still got a few days before I can book.


#18

They changed the booking window, you will have to wait until you are 90 days out. I know they are accepting adrs after March 22, since I was able to make all of mine for our March trip.:happy:


#19

When I booked our room this morning, the lady told me that the new policy for booking dining reservations was 90 days out. She even gave me the date that I could call back to book all my ADR’s. Disneyland does this and I personally like it better. We usually book 6 months out or less, so it gives me more time to plan our days before deciding on dining.


#20

Has anyone else seen that Chef Mickeys is still 180 days?
