On your mark, get set, BOOK!

If you're planning a Walt Disney World trip in the next 180 days, you need to get on the phone or online right away. Today, Disney extended the ADR booking window back to 180 days. The ADR reservation system is going to be quite busy today, so be patient. In fact, I was trying to get some ADR's at 6 a.m. this morning and the online system was overloaded.

If you're unable to get into the online system, call 407-WDW-DINE.

Good luck!

UPDATE (5pm):

Disney apparently has experiences such a high volume of requests that the online system has shut down. I've been checking all day and it's appears to have been down since around 6 a.m. and still isn't up (as of 5 p.m.). Likewise, the phone lines have been overwhelmed all day. I've tried calling dozens of times throughout the day and can't get through.

Disney probably should have considered some staggered system for switching to a 180-day ADR window. Having 90 days worth of bookings all become available on the same day has been an apparent recipe for disaster.

What have your experiences been like? Have you been able to book ADR's today? Post a comment!

I got through this morning for next April but the total process took over an hour and a half. It was worth it to get an ADR for Chef Mickey's for my little girl's first birthday.
