    Hi there. Would I still be able to make dining reservations 180 days in advance if I have a balance due on my vacation package?

    Hi Muhammad!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. With some of the more popular restaurants on property, like Cinderella's Royal Table and Be Our Guest Restaurant, you certainly need to be ready to go on the 180 day mark, so this is a great question!

    While your Advanced Dining Reservation is linked to your My Disney Experience account, it is not necessary to even have a Walt Disney World Resort hotel reservation to make a reservation. This allows for everyone including local Floridians with Annual Passes and Guests staying off property to book. So you certainly can make your Advanced Dining Reservation with a balance on your package. Since there is not a limitation on who can book, restaurants can book up rather quickly. If you have a must-do or high priority restaurant that you would like to eat at, then I certainly recommend booking it as soon as you possibly can. The window for booking opens up at 6 AM EST for online booking and 7 AM EST for phone reservations. If you would like to call, the phone number is 407-939-1947.

    Please let us know if you have any other questions before your trip!
