    You need your Disney reservation number IF you are staying at a Disney resort and want to tie it up with your reservation. The usual reason for people doing this is that they want to take advantage of the 180 + 10 priviledge which comes with a Disney resort booking. You don't have to use it though as the online and telephone reservation system are for anyone wanting to make ADR's, not just for Disney guests. I do recommend however, that you take a bit of time to play around on the website to familiarize yourself with it beforehand. I hope you get every single ADR you want! :thumbsup2

    The benifits of having your Disney US reservation number are that:
    1. You can take advantage of the +10 days for onsite guests
    2. If you have the dining plan you won't have to pay upfront for any meals that would otherwise require prepayment in full

    Now that the reservations are back to 180 days the plus 10 is less important unless you want either Le Cellier or CRT (and maybe Ohana)

    Yes you can. It is the "+10" that requires the ressie no. as this is the proof that you have a Disney Hotel reservation which entitles you to the 190 days.

    I had a go at 'dummy' booking on-line and personally didn't like it. I think it was more not trusting myself than anything.

    I got my reservation number (US one) from Thomas Cook and used the good old regular method of calling up Disney Dining...can't beat hearing those lovely CM's voices anyway...I'm a sucker for a Floridian accent! :yay:
