Just to let everyone know, I received this email today:
[B][B]The reservation system used at Walt Disney World Resort for booking dining, recreation and tours will be undergoing an “extreme makeover”. This new reservation system will provide Guests opportunities to book multiple reservations during one booking session and Guests will also be able to make dining reservations online at disneyworld.com as early as December 2008 So as you can see, this enhancement will be very exciting and beneficial for Guests.
During this system upgrade, some changes will be made to the current booking horizons. The normal 180 day booking window will be reduced starting July 31, 2008. Reservations for dining, recreation and tours will only be accepted through January 25, 2009 for a short amount of time. The good news is on October 24, 2008, the anticipated upgrade completion date, reservations will again be accepted for the normal 180 day window or April 21, 2009.
It is important to note that reservations for Victoria & Albert’s, Cinderella’s Royal Table, and Chef Mickey’s will not be impacted by these changes. These three venues will continue to observe normal booking windows.
