What is an ADR and how do I make it?

Where to Eat in Orlando - Tony's Town Square Restaurant

First-time visitors to the Walt Disney World Resort will want to familiarize themselves with a new term, the Advance Dining Reservation, or ADR for short. Guests can begin making dining reservations for the table service restaurants at the Walt Disney World Resort up to 180 days in advance of their visit. Some of the Disney World restaurants as so popular, such as Cinderella's Royal Table at Magic Kingdom Park, that you absolutely MUST make reservations the full 180 days in advance just to have a chance of snagging a reservation. Even if you don't snag a coveted table at Cinderella's Castle, there are plenty of other fabulous dining experiences (check out our post on 10 Advance Dining Reservations Worth Making for Your Family).

Listed below are helpful resources for choosing where to eat in Orlando.

A long time ago, we brought a cooler with food and drinks in it and stored it in locked guest lockers. At lunchtime, we went to locker got our lunch and enjoyed it then went back to the rides. Do they still allow that?
