ADR day yesterday

So my long awaited ADR day arrived yesterday. I've managed to get all the restaurants I wanted, not on the days I wanted (plan being completely made over) but also not at the best of times. I've seen a lot of you mention that it might be possible to alter the times once booked, do I do this through the app and how soon after booking can I try? If I can't manage to change the times I'm sure we'll cope but I'd at least like to make a couple of them a wee bit later.

Anyway for anyone interested I managed to get:

Fantastic Dining - Mamma Melrose - 3.45 pm
Narcoossee's - 5.25 pm
T-rex (for the kids - they'll love the decor) 3.15 pm
Tusker House breakfast - 8.50 am (had hoped for earlier)
Be Our Guest dinner 4.50 pm

As a I say the times aren't exactly what I was looking for but hopefully I'll be able to tweak them a wee bit.

When you made your ADRs did you search for the specific times you wanted, rather than "Breakfast", "Lunch" etc? Doing it this way is less likely to result in odd times. It was also my ADR day yesterday and I had no problems getting anything at the times that we wanted - but I made sure to choose the exact time. The only one which was a bit odd was Chef Art Smith which initially came up with nothing. I then asked for 30 minutes later and it offered me the time I actually wanted! But yes, you should be able to try and modify them - just keep checking each day as people change their plans a lot (I currently have a couple of restaurants booked twice until we finalise our plans a bit more in the next couple of weeks and then will likely let the duplicates go).

Yes check regularly and also definitely at the 60 and 30 day windows as people will get their fast passes and edit their ADRs to match.

Ive always done the same as Caroian and got times fairly near /at when we wanted. Just go into your reservations and keep rechecking - before they give you the new time they'll prompt you to cancel the current time.

I have lately found that changing times functionality / modify booking just doesnt work anymore. Of course it will only work if there is availability anyway, so I just do a new booking search, I agree better to search on times than breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Thanks everyone, I did search on times rather than meals, Id already read that tip in this section before. As I said the times arent terrible just not quite what I was hoping for. Ive had a chat with the group and they all seem happy enough with the altered plan to suit the dining times.

I didn't get the times I would have liked on the 180 day, but in the intervening period I have checked again at various intervals, and have been able to change bookings to times much closer and in the main exactly what I wanted originally. The key is book what you can, then keep an eye on it and you can move things closer to what you want as people do just that, changing their minds, altering plans etc
