That's right, Walt Disney World has finally opened up online Advance Dining Reservations (ADRs) to the general public following a successful trial with travel agents. Go to http://disneyworld.disney.go.com/restaurants/ to view all restaurants and make your reservations.
While this is now available, don't expect to grab a prime dinner seating for Le Cellier less than 90 days out (or 90 + 10). The busy restaurants still book up quickly. We're uncertain as of yet what time the booking clock ticks over, whether it's midnight ET or 7 a.m. ET (when the phone lines open up). If anybody knows, please pass it along.
When you try to book a reservation, you will be able to search for up to 5 consecutive days at a time, and also select the preferred time of day for the reservation. You'll indicate the number of diners and the system will do the rest.
For those who don't want to pay for long-distance calls to Walt Disney World, or who prefer doing research without dealing with cast members, this will be a welcome change.
