2. Know When You Can Make Advance Dining Reservations

When planning a table-service meal, reservations are a must. Advance Dining Reservations can be made 180 days in advance of your trip. Additionally, if you’re staying on property, you receive a 10- day head start. (This can be the deal breaker in scoring that elusive ADR!) Keep in mind that while some restaurants accept walk-up diners, it’s pretty rare. (This is especially true during busier seasons.) On a positive note, guests 21 and over can find spots at the bar for applicable restaurants. Otherwise, I’d suggest you play it safe and only dine at sit-down places with a reservation in hand.
