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.
