Disneyworld Quick Tips – Advanced Dining Reservation Backup Plan

With the new Advanced Dining Reservation up and running. There is bound to be some glitches in the system. If you look closely at the picture above you can see a 24 hour outage window. Brenda yesterday was nice enough to point out a glitch in the system here.

I myself in the past have used a travel agent to make my reservations but with the new online system when I book my next years vacation I believe I will be trying the online route.

That being said I know it can be frustrating to get to a restaurant only to find out you don’t have a ADR. This has happened to me one time and luckily the hostess was able to seat us with a minimal wait.

Way back when, had I actually done today’s quick tip I wouldn’t have been in the predicament I was in. My quick tip for today is an easy one.

Call Disney before you leave to confirm your Advance Dining Reservation.

I like to do this atleast 3 weeks out just to make sure I have all my t’s crossed and my i’s dotted. The number is 407-WDW-DINE, the cast members on there are great and unlike the online system can offer up suggestions and recommendations.

Calls take about 5-10 minutes most times and the Disney Cast Members have no problems going over all your reservations with you.I will say every person I have ever spoken to there have been great and very knowledgeable!

So do yourself a favor use this quick tip/backup plan to help make your vacation much more enjoyable and less stressful.
