    We have annual passes and will be at ASM early June. I understand the 180 day threshold. How are others able to book dining reservations before 180 days? I can't get any dates past Thanksgiving while people have reserved after Thanksgiving? Help!

    Dear Tracy,

    Thank you so much for reaching out to us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question about planning your Advanced Dining Reservations!

    First of all, congratulations on becoming Annual Passholders! I am also an Annual Passholder and I love all of the perks that come along with it. 

    In terms of the 180-day mark for making Advanced Dining Reservations, that does still apply for Annual Passholders, even if you don't have a Walt Disney World Resort hotel stay booked. However, if you do have a Walt Disney World Resort hotel stay booked, you can book all of your Advanced Dining Reservations for up to ten days of your vacation, all at the 180-day mark. That is how some folks are able to book up to 180+10 days ahead of their check-in date. Otherwise, you can book your Advanced Dining Reservations one day at a time starting at the 180-day mark for each date. 

    Hope that helps to explain the system!

    Have a magical time for your June stay!
