    Advanced Dining Reservations likely to return to 180 days starting October 27th

    I've heard from a couple CMs now that they are being told that advanced dining reservations are going to return to 180 days starting October 27th. Im conjunction they are also supposed to release park hours 180 days out as well, but those have been pretty fluid even up to the day in question...

    Personally, I don't care. I tend to make my trip plans within 90 days anyway. But I just wish Disney would stop messing with it and make up their minds!

    Hey look! I started a blog! Disney updates 11/16!

    Stopping in the middle is distinctly unpatriotic.

    I've updated my ADR calculator to handle the 180 days and the change date - if anyone wants to test it and make sure I've got all the finer issues about the change handled, feel free:

    I also fixed the typo in the subject, but for some reason it hasn't updated.

    I'm fine with that. I don't know what I want to eat 90 or 180 days from now, anyway!

    I'd say 80% of the time I don't make reservations to go to WDW more than 90 days out. So the shorter time frame worked in my favor.
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    If WDW is setting hours and ADRs 180 days out, then they must be comfortable with attendance numbers.

    Now that Disney has successfully revamped their dining booking engines, they are reverting back to 180 days. I think it will take the panic off of some people when trying to make reservations. But the early bird will get the Le Cellier, Chef Mickey's and Cinderella Castle ressies!
