In case anyone is interested (and maybe everyone already knew this), it appears that if your TA made your earlier ADRs online, you can access them online now yourself. That's what I'm doing now. You jsut need your confirmation # and phone #.

I think no one should panic yet! I have emailed my TA to see what the procedure is for guests booked through TA's and she has contacted Disney.
In typical Disney Fashion, they have not notified TAs yet!

My Guess is...that Guests booked through TAs will have a link to use similar to the link they use for Online Check in...or that the "computer ghuru's at Disney" simply didn't program it correctly. Either way, Disney is not going to leave a good percentage of their booked Guests without booking ability.

Seeing that this just went public today, I am not going to flip out! Nothing ever works properly when Disney first rolls it out!

Threatening to cancel reservations is just silly...it's like "no one wants to play my game so I am taking my toys and going home!" This thing has only been operational for a few hours and the TA's on this site are even saying they have no information yet! Put a little faith in your TA and let them find out what you need to do!

Everyone...take a deep breath and just let the bugs get worked out!

Or is there some other place you need to enter your resort reservation?
No, when you go to make your first reservation there is an option to link your reservations to your vacation package, and you enter your reservation number there. It's in the same part of the screen that you would enter the date/time for the restaurant.

Thanks! I was wondering since it would show me logged in and tell me I had 92 days until my vacation, but wouldn't appear to link up to the ADR system. Now that you pointed that out, its totally obvious and I can't believe I missed it!

I agree, thank you for words of wisdom! I am planning on calling Friday morning because who knows with this online system....I enjoy talking to a live person anyway!

Like I said, there are probably not that many TAs who would be waking up extra early to book ADRs for their clients - I think ones who are also DIS-ers would be the exception.

However, I think that now there will be MANY more people willing to wake up early or stay up late to book ADRs for themselves. So we really are at much more of a disadvantage than people were while online booking was only available to TAs.

Question - How early can you book for the 90-day reservation? Like, if my 90 day was tomorrow, when should I get up....or should I stay up late? Does the window open at 12:01 am that day or not until later?


And if anyone has booked really early in the am....please let us know.

It's awesome that we can view our ADR's online now. I can make sure everything's right plus add our engagement celebration to every ADR. : I only wish I could book GF Tea through here because I want an earlier time and I hate having to call back so much. Oh well.

Now I'm freaked out! I went on to check my dining reservations (which I made on Sunday, 6/7 - 90 days from our arrival date). I'm a little OCD, so when I realized that these could be retrieved, I had to see them

Only, they're not correct We are a party of 5 - 2 adults and 3 children. One of my reservations is listed as 1 adult and 3 children, and the rest were 2 adults, 2 children. Should I be concerned about this? I don't know how strict they are about party size. I guess I should call, or I'll be nervous...

I just redid most of my ADR's online and got way better times than I origioally had through a CM. As soon as I am sure that that these are comfirmed I will call to cancell my origionals

I would call WDW Dine and ask them to pull up the ADRs you made online. If she recites them correctly, go cancel your old ADRs

You can cancel online too. I was able to get 'Ohana a little bit later than originally (5:25 instead of 5:00) and was able to cancel the old reservation. Just pull it up, using the res #, then hit the cancel button, on the right hand side.
