What I did - now this was in 09 so things could have changed. I booked my entire trip without adding dining about a year in advance. That way I was able to book my ADR's. Once they released the free dining, I added it to my package and it was easy. I think it's kind of kept secret that you can do it this way because they want you to hear of free dining, call and make a res with dining, and then they hope you'll forget to call back to make it free Good luck!! FREE DINING is the greatest - at least it was for us!!
