ADR question

At the risk of sounding like a total Newb, I can make ADR's even if I am not staying at a resort correct? I just made three ADRs but was surprised when I didn't have to leave a CC number or anything. Do they really just trust you or am I doing it totally wrong

1. Correct.
2. Not all restaurants require a CC number.
3. No they don't really just trust you. That's why some restaurants require a CC hold. But no, you're not doing anything wrong. If a CC is required, you can't complete your ADR without it.

With a confirmed Disney Resort reservation, you can make up to 10 days of ADRs starting 180 days before date of check-in. Without a confirmed Disney Resort reservation, you may make ADRs up to 180 days before date of dining. The actual reservation confirmation does not matter here, and ADRs are not tied to that reservation. It's only used to check for dining plan stuff (for prepaid events) and qualification for the +10 perk.

As far as CC-held ADRs, they're limited in number and only apply at the Signatures, any restaurant with a character meal (even if the meal the ADR for is not a character meal), Be Our Guest, and some other special meal events (Fantasmic Package, CP Package, etc). For normal ADRs at non-character restaurants, no CC is needed.
