Need some dining help

My dining window opens on Sunday. I am going to try and do it online. I have never done the online reservations before and have a few questions:
1) If my window opens on Sunday, am I able to log on at midnight?
2) Do I just go to the main Disney site and follow the links for dining reservations, or is there a special process for a DVC member?

2) Do I just go to the main Disney site and follow the links for dining reservations, or is there a special process for a DVC member? Online ADRs

You have to go to a restaurant and then retrieve your reservation from there, on the screen with the date.

It is still a 90 day booking window, right? My 90 day window opens tomorrow, yet I just made all of my reservations for the week online now. I just tried to make a reservation in March just to see if I could, and it let me. Did they change the policy?

They changed it back to a 180 day window on October 27th.

My trip begins on May 22nd,and I get to make my ADRs next Sunday.

They have increased the booking window to 180 days. I believe it was just in the past two weeks. Hopefully you got everything you wanted?

Ugh....I didn't get that 180 day memo. If this was a year ago, I would have been all over that. But after spending two weeks in Disney in August, I kind of needed a disboards break. I think I over-obsessed on that trip, and I figured I could wait until the 90 day window to start obsessing over this trip. Oh well...

Actually, I don't think I was the only one who didn't get the memo. I was able to get every reservation that I wanted aside from the Coral Reef...Never had a problem with that one before.

I can vouch for the 3am start. I made ADRs 90 days out at 3am EST for our party of 10.

Thanks for the information! A couple of minutes, let alone hours, makes all the difference when trying to secure CRT at MK dining ressies.

In retrospect, I thought I would have had a hard time since my window opened a few weeks ago when they switched back over to 180 days, but we got almost every single reservation within an hour of when we wanted it.

I am not sure how I like the 180 day window. I have a hard timie figuring out what I want to eat tonight, let alone 180 days from now.
