When my 180+10 rolls around, will I see all available times and days for the ADR I want or will I have to go to every day and search?
every day and each time frame for each one
Yeah, for the online system, you need to search on day and approximate time for either a single restaurant or one filtered by some choices. (You can practice this by looking for reservations for dates before your trip, inside of 180 days, and then canceling instead of actually reserving it.)
Once 7am Eastern rolls around, you can switch over to the phone system, where the rep on the other end of the line may be able to make more thorough searches for you. If going that route, get the hard-to-get ADRs knocked out in the 6am hour, then call the WDW-DINE line to help fill in the others.
Yes, a separate search for each ADR. I had 13 for my last trip and it was a bit tedious, but it only toll about 75 min (on line) and I got every one that I wanted. It really helps to have a list in front of you with the locations, dates, and approximate time that you want. Put he “hard to get” one at the top of the list and the easier ones near the bottom. As a general rule, the later in your trip that you can plan the hard-to-get ones, the better the chances are of getting them. The V&A Chef’s Table was my “hard-to-get” one, and I got it at 6:01 for my 180+7 day…
