I know there is a lot of anxiety for people making ADRs for January and February because of the uncertainty of the participating restaurants, but my suggestion is just stay calm and make ADRs where you really want to eat. I think it's a good time to remember three essential facts about ADRs and the DDP: Some ADRs are very difficult to get, and they're all hard to get if you wait too long. With rare exceptions, you cancel an ADR with no penalty You can add DDP right at the last minute if you choose, so there is absolutely no need to make a DDP purchase decision now. So make your ADRs now, and take your sweet time making the DDP decision. Chances are, the final lineup for the DDP will look a lot different than it looks today. If you don't like what you see when you need to make a DDP decision, don't buy it. You'll still have your ADRs, and you can evaluate each of them and keep the ones you want. Don't panic...all is not lost...yet. Happpy planning!
