ADR for Split Stays

Hi all! I am coming up my 60 day mark for our weeklong trip and i am trying to get an ADR (or two) everyday- which i know is a big ask. Complicating things, we have a triple split stay (three DVC reservations) . I will try to ask this as clearly as i can.

We arrive Sunday 04/24. We are staying at our first hotel (Riv) for two nights (04/24 and 4/25). We leave on 04/26 and go to our second hotel (BLT). We stay at BLT for three nights- 04/26, 04/27, and 04/28. We leave BLT on 04/29 and go to our final hotel (Poly). We are at the Poly for two nights 4/29 and 4/30.

Is this correct-

I can make ADRs for 4/24, 4/25 on 02/23
I can make ADRs for 4/26, 4/27 and 4/28 on 02/25
I can make ADRs for 04/29 and 04/30 on 02/28

Aside- what is a leading reservation and should I get one? Is there a cost?

Guidance appreciated! -W


I won’t comment on the leading res question

A leading reservation is booking a stay that starts 10 days before your actual check-in date and covers the full length of your stay. In your case you would book something from 4/14 until 4/30. This means you have to book ADRs day by day, but you’re booking them at arrival day+10 which means you should have little to no problem getting everything you want. However it means your booking window would have actually opened Sunday, so if you decide to do this you should do it soon.

There is no cost, except that you have to pay a deposit of one night when you make the booking. This is refunded when you cancel the booking.


In your dates you’ve forgotten that you can make ADRs for your checkout day too. So that means:

You can make ADRs for 4/24, 4/25 and 4/26 on 02/23
You can make ADRs for 4/27, 4/28 and 4/29 on 02/25
You can make ADRs for 4/30 and 5/1 on 02/28


yes that’s correct!
