    I just can't get a grip on ADRs........ :unsure: :sigh:

    If you can only make an ADR 90 days out, does that mean that you have to then ring back each day to make bookings for the following days? :confused:

    You can make an ADR for 90 days before you visit that particular restaurant.
    Therefore if you work back 90 days from the LAST ADR that you intend to make, and phone at that stage, then you can make them all in one fowl swoop!
    Hope that makes sense.

    However, if there is a popular ADR that you want at the beginning of your holiday (such as CRT) I wouldn't wait, I'd book at the 90 day mark....then ring back for the others.

    If you are staying on site you can make ADRs at the 90 day mark for the first 10 days of your stay.

    Yes, we are indeed. :yes:
    So, is this correct? - I could make the first 10 days worth at 90 days from the first one. Then would they tell me when I could call back for the remaining 4 days worth?

    Is it just me or does it get more complicated every time the system changes?

    :wiggle: Thank you all so much for helping. :hug2:
    I know it's completely ridiculous, but I was getting myself in a bit of a state about these bloomin' ADRs. We usually never book meals so this is all new to me. Thanks again. :hug2:

    Just to complicate things either more .... :lol:

    Yes you book at 90 days from your check in date + the next 10 days.

    Then the fun starts :rolleyes:

    Some CM's will let you call the next day for day 12 etc etc, others will say after booking the first lot you then have to wait until 90 days from each extra day you want to book.

    Some days I ended up calling back 2 or 3 times until I would get someone who was able to book them daily for me.

    Hope this makes sense!
