I just read on the disboards that the latest.....

The conversion will start on July 21, 2008 and is expected to be functioning on October 24. While this is taking place, the latest dining reservation date which can be booked in advance is January 25, 2009. Once the new system is operating, it will revert to the 180 day Advance Dining Reservation window.

We will be there at Disney from Jan 24-30. So will I only be able to make ADR's through Jan 25? or can I do it for the remainder of my trip?

There is going to be an influx of people making reservations that didn't get to from July 21-October 24....ugggg!

I think what they are doing is, beginning July 21, you can only make your ADR's for travel within the next 90 days. If you've already made all yours, you are fine. They are 'temporarily' switching from the 180+10 day rule to 90 days. So, if you book a trip for Jan. 15, 2009 on Sept. 1, you won't be able to make your ADR's until 90 prior to Jan. 15. It is now, 180 days prior to that date.

Actually, if I read it correctly, starting on July 21, you can make ADRs for dates up til January 25. Then starting on October 24 or 25 they'll go back to the 180 day rule.

OK, just got off the phone with WDW-DINE. We are planning on a January 30-February 7th trip, so obviously these changes concerned me. I am one of those odd duck that plan our vacations as EARLY as possible, and know exactly what we will be doing each day of our trip:rolleyes1

At first, the CM had no idea what I was talking about, and I had to read to her the info I found on the web...After 5 minutes of her clicking away on her keyboard, she told me that the system she was working knew nothing about any potential changes, and told me I could start making reservations at my usual 180 day window. So, the confusion continues. :confused3

I'm confused too. My trip is April 6-13. At my 6 month window the system will be at 90 days, but will be back to 180 10 days later. So on October 24 I'll be one of tons of people making ADRs for Feb., March and April! And that's a Friday, so I'll be working too.
Darn, I thought I'd have 3 more months with the info we had been getting--guess I have to put my plan together by the end of October!

I want to make ADRs for Feb. also. I'm still going to call at 180+10 and try it. If the computer won't let them, I'll then know to come back at the 90 day mark. But, if it goes through, all the better for me!:woohoo:
