Since someone mentioned booking ADRs, please correct me if I am wrong: We can book our ADRs at 180 days out if we have an existing reservation on a Disney property. We can book ADRs for our *length of stay* right?

So, I plan to arrive at Disney on September 13th. 180 days before September 13th is March 17th. On March 17th I can book dining reservations for September 13th-21st, yes? Or do I have to call back on March 18th to book September 14th, March 19th to book September 15th, etc?

You will be allowed to book your arrival days plus the 10 upcoming days. In the past this worked directly in the online system - for the moment the system does not know the 10 day rule.. So in this case you have to call at your 180 day mark and can book your whole length of stay (provided it is shorter than 11 days :-) ).
We just did that last week, called directly 10 seconds before 7 am and were moved directly to an agent - so not even a minute on hold - and got all ADR's that we wanted!

I know some people had luck trying it on different apps (I tried it on my ipad vs. the laptop but it still didn't work, so ended up having to call). Good luck!
That's got to be it. Ugh. Thanks for the heads up

why arent they releasing park hours yet for sept.

I guess Im just impatient. I will feel much better if FD is announced too.
The online booking isn't recognizing 180+10, but the automated phone system is up and running, plus I had a really helpful CM the other day.
Here's an ADR booking calculator for anyone that needs it.

It's telling me I can't book til the 10th. I can't call. Have to go to work. I will call when I have some extra time. I am worried about Ohana. Everything else no biggie.

Dates are off on new site for the 180 days.
People that use the old site are having luck with the 180 + 10
That's what did !

Log into your account on the new website, then go to My Disney Experience, then click on Customized maps. It will take you to the old website. It works on a desktop or a laptop.

Usually free dining in the US follows UK dining offers.

For summer of 2013 here I. The UK we have had three offers. Back in August we had free dining offered with QS for the moderate hotels and full dining for the luxury resorts with $200 dollar gift card, we had to book by Nov 13.

The we had another offer. QS only for moderators and luxury resorts plus $100 and then this was offered again.

So it looks like you may only get offered QS for all types of resort if it follows usual UK patterns. We will see, but it looks like Disney is reeling in the benefits of free dining no matter what level of resort you book at.

The only difference I ever see, is that those who wait to book the US offers can book the value resorts and get QS, those of us I. The UK have never been offered free dining with value resorts, unless we book with Disney USA in the spring .

I'm about to book our package!
I was waiting for the promotions but I missed one "minor" detail. September is off season for Disney but that week is school break here in Panama. I started calling about my plane tickets and had to buy what was left. Which meant moving my dates and DD is going to miss school on Friday right before the break.
Now my mom is freaking out that we won't get a room in Disney and won't have a place to stay LOL.
I'll call this afternoon when I finish working
I'm still hoping for FD and will try to add it to the package if it's ever released
