Love online ADRs

I used the online system for the first time this morning. Love it! Started as soon as the date switched and got everything I wanted for almost the exact time I wanted including Coral Reef and Le Cellier. Took about 15 minutes and I have an email record of all reservations! What an improvement.

Weird...I just tried making another ADR online and when I inputed my reservation information for the vacation, the system unlocked up until October 9th. My reservation is only until Oct 3rd.

Has this happened to anyone else?

Also, just found this great tip regarding getting a blank screen when you click to confirm your ADRs! Mods, you might want to put this in the FAQ so people don't freak out as much...

If you are lucky enough to get the blank white screen when you click to confirm your ADRs... DON'T PANIC!!

The ADR was probably still made... to find this out and to get the confirmation numbers...

click on the suitcase at the top of the screen and then click on 'Dining Reservations'. When that screen shows up...scroll all the way down and your most recently made ADRs (for that session) show up.

It just happened to me TWICE and I was able to go and retrieve them and write down the ADRs #s

** edited to add... sadly though you will NOT get an email automatically sent to you. You can pull up the ADR though and then fill out the information and click 'email reservation'

When do you check in? Maybe the system opened up the 10 day window as well???

I check in the Sept 26th...so my 10 day window should end on Oct 6th. I checked again and I'm still allowed to book up until Oct 9th in the system. Strange!

Does anyone know if cancellations are made if they go back into the ADR availablity online? I want a different time for 'Ohana's then I have but I don't know if I have to call to see if any cancellations have been made or if I can just check online.

TIA

So happy the TA issues have been worked out but what happens if your conf # changes? Because I made my res through a TA everytime I change something on it the Disney Conf # changes. If I put a res number in my profile before I make ADRs can I change that number?

When you make your ADR online how do you know whether it falls under lunch or dinner? I don't see anything telling me which is which.

Since the October hours are out, I went and played around with the online booking system a little since I can make our ADRs on Saturday. I almost wish I hadn't! I tried to make ADRS for my restaurants for the times I wanted, but one week earlier (since my window doesn't open 'til Saturday). I didn't like what I was seeing - I could get hardly anything. I know this does not mean I won't get what I want during my week, but it is a little discouraging. I'm not nearly as excited as I was . . .

Sorry if this has been asked and answered before, I searched but I couldn't find it. If am checking everyday for a certain reservation that I couldn't get when I initially booked, how often is the online system updated? Such as if I check at 10AM and nothing is available, and someone cancels later that day will it show up in the afternoon as available or do I have to wait until 6AM the next day for the cancellation to be available? Hope this makes sense! Thanks!

i believe the online system is the same exact system the CMs use so no need to call the dining line...just look online. I also would think that a canceled ADR would be back in the system no later than 15 mins later, if not immediately.

Okay good. I didn't know if checking every so often during the day was just in vain. Good news though...I did manage to snag 1900 PF for the 9/24 when the system told me it was booked earlier today!
Now if someone would just tell me "step away from the computer"...

I think the ADR gods are telling you to extend your vacation.
