7. Restaurant Bookings
As you probably know, Walt Disney World allows Advance Dining Reservations (ADRs) to be made up to 180 days in advance. That’s six months! While that’s great for the planner, it means that the most popular restaurants fill up fast, and many of the best and most popular restaurants at WDW are in the World Showcase in EPCOT. For example, I tried to make a reservation for my husband’s birthday at Le Cellier and at 5 months out it was already booked solid. So if you snooze, you lose! But there is hope if you missed out on a must-have dinner; ADRs are often cancelled, so be sure to keep checking back, even the same day. You might get lucky and get a cancellation!
