What you’re quoting is linked with the “through July 10th” part of the info though.

It seems so odd to me that Disney is forcing you to have to call to make reservations when they are OVERWHELMED with phone calls already!

Isn’t that the ONLY thing they are referring to in the article, though?

Don’t plan on making a reservation for Oga’s

Although with the current Florida rules, they couldn’t sell much anyway

Sorry–I meant for reservations after July 10th.

I think it might be online, they really don’t want lines jammed with calls do they? But if it is they haven’t loaded the resort and park locations yet. So :woman_shrugging:

The online system is live and has been working well for Disney Springs for two or three weeks now, could be longer. I’ve lost track of time.

True. We booked our Disney Springs Homecomin’ reservations a few weeks ago.

Although, it doesn’t work through the App. We had to do it from the website itself, which still seems to be the case.

Good news! Its my ADR day anyway tomorrow.

Bad news, its my ADR day tomorrow along with everyone else from Aug 29 back through July 11 that I will be competing with on the phone lines…

Is it selfish of me to wish they had done this today instead of tomorrow?:face_with_hand_over_mouth::joy:

I don’t understand why the existing online ADR system cannot be used? Like why does it have to be new for 60 days in advance instead of 180?

I haven’t received that email yet. Guess I will get up early tomorrow and attempt to call.

Just received my email. I don’t see where you got that phone number though? Mine doesn’t have that.

EDITED to say I clicked the link and saw it.

I think it’ll be because of the cancelled ADR part.

The existing ADR booking system is already re-set to 60 days ahead. Apart from that, it hasn’t changed. You still get length of stay up to 10 days etc. And anyone can book at 60 days out, I booked something a while back - and then cancelled it.
