Disney World Dining Booking Window Moves to 180 Days
 
Disney World Dining Booking Window Moves to 180 Days

Posted: 07 Aug 2009 05:05 PM PDT

Starting October 27, 2009, Walt Disney World will move the booking window for Advanced Dining Reservations to 180 days, from the current 90 days. Walt Disney World resort guests will be able to book all dining reservations 180 days in advance of the day they check in, up to 10 days at a time. Non-Disney World Resort guest can make dining reservations 180 days in advance of their dining date.

Currently, some popular restaurants such as Le Cellier and Cinderella’s Royal Table are nearly impossible to find, even calling first thing 90 days in advance. This move should allow those who plan well in advance plenty of opportunity to book the reservations they want.

Starting on October 27, 2009, guests will be able to book dining reservations up until April 25, 2010.

Rumor is that at the time of the change, all dining reservations will require a credit card guarantee. No official announcement has been made, I will update this post if/when that change is announced.

I guess that's good for people who love advance planning, but I don't see it being that helpful unless they combine it with releasing the park hours further in advance too. It's very frustrating to try to plan ADR's when they either haven't put out hours or they keep changing them!

it comes from some site called mousemisers.com. some site that 'blogs' discounts. the whois is blocked but the main commenter appears to be named Keith, the same guy who registered all of the 'sponsors' and 'friends' of the site, such as mymickeycard.com and another travel agency.

when i did a search earlier on this, they seemed to be the only one talking about it.

Around & around we go.

I know the move back to 180 days have been floating around the 'net the past few weeks, but I'm not so sure about the credit card required reservations. Can you imagine having to pay for every meal in advance--6 months in advance? Especially when you could add the dining plan 72 hours in advance or get a TiW card that will give you 20% off. I know I don't get our TiW card until the last minute. It's a pain when you need to have your meal price refigured.

Any other word on this?

If you think they change things after being posted 90 days out, you should experience the joy of the 6-months-in-advance calendars.

;)


Many of us here "remember the moments."

Shut up lol. Well I hope it is true. I used to be a person who calls on the 180 day mark LOL!!! But I do not have any problems with the 90 day mark. I was able to get what I wanted when I used the 90 day window.

Lynn5700 08-08-2009 04:07 PM

HAHA does this mean park hours will go back to 180 days? lol

Your cc wouldn't be charged unless you didn't show... like they already do with Akershus, the dinner shows, etc.

I wish they'd do that, it would free up a lot of the double adrs people book & the no shows. Maybe some of us would be able to get our adrs we want.

Ok, this is bogus since my 90 day window starts 09/27/09, and I am ready to go now with the reservations!

That is, of course, the biggest "tell" that this may be a BOGUS announcement.

They'd need to post 3-4 months on the calendar, (basically) all at once
near the late October/early November newly announced ADR date.

They can't seem to get the one month posted on time to hit the 90 day mark NOW.

Stay tuned.

Also, what if you have the Dining Plan? Do you still need to give a credit card?
