    HI Again! Our first day of our trip is August 23, 2016. We are there for 5 days/4 nights. I thought I could make dining reservations 180+4 but it is not letting me do it online-the days are grey. If I calculate from today, it would be 184 days. HELP!

    Hi Teresa! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I know that making Dining Reservations can often be a bit confusing. So I hope that I will be able to clear up your confusion! Dining Reservations can be made STARTING 180 days before your Check-In date.  If you are staying off-site Dining Reservations can be made at the 180 day before your stay time point, however additional days of dining reservations must be made on a day by day basis. 
    If you are staying at the Walt Disney World Resort you will be able to book dining reservations for the length of your stay starting at the 180 days before your Check-In date plus up to 10 days of your ON-PROPERTY stay. That means that Disney Resort hotel guests can make dining reservations for the last day of their trip 190 days in advance instead of just 180 days in advance.

    Dining Reservations can be made using My Disney Experience or by calling the Disney Dining Reservation hotline!

    I hope that I have helped to answer your question!  Have a magical time!
