Question Making ADR's

Hi, I haven't made ADR's in a few years (before the My Disney Experience and the app). What is the best way now. Do you use the App or the Disney website?

If you can, fire up both the app and website.

Oftentimes, one or the other will become overwhelmed and start saying nothing at all available. When that occurs, you can quickly switch and have a better chance of getting those hot dining spots.

Can’t even remember how many times this tip we saw here on the boards has saved our bacon. Paying it forward.

I don't think I've ever used the app outside of when we're actually in the parks. I still prefer doing anything important on a computer, rather than a cell phone.

Relaxing on board the Magic. The trip report for our back-to-back cruises on the Disney Magic has started!

I've done both and for some reason, the computer sometimes offers me different times than the app does so I agree - use both and see what times you get offered.

I use the website or call. I never use the app because I'm too old so I only use my phone for a telephone and text once in a while.

I used both as well for our recent trip. The website seems to freeze up more than the app though.

We use both. This last time I used one computer and my husband used another and got just about everything we wanted. I use the app more to look when I want to change a reservation.
