    We are arriving in WDW staying at Port Orleans French Quarter on 3rd August this year (yay!!) When are we able to begin making reservations for restaurants within Disney?

    Hi there, Holly!  Welcome to planDisney!

    All of the delicious dining options are one of my favorite aspects of a Walt Disney World Resort vacation, so I am so happy to help you with this question!  Reservations for table service restaurants are highly recommended and can currently be made 60 days in advance.  As a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel Guest, you will be able to make your dining reservations for the length of your trip (up to 10 days) 60 days before your arrival.  So since your arrival date is August 3, 2023, you should be able to begin making your Walt Disney World Resort dining reservations on June 4, 2023.  

    Since you have a few months before you can begin booking your dining reservations, this would be the perfect time to start checking out restaurant menus on the Walt Disney World Resort website to get an idea of which restaurants you might like to try.  If you're interested in a fine dining experience, you can't go wrong with either California Grill or Topolino's Terrace - Flavors of the Riviera.  Both of these restaurants boast top-notch food and spectacular views.  For a fun character breakfast, I would suggest The Crystal Palace.  The chance to visit Winnie the Pooh and his friends while enjoying a buffet that includes churro Mickey waffles makes this one of my favorite breakfast spots in all of Walt Disney World Resort.  It is worth mentioning that since you will be staying at Disney's Port Orleans Resort - French Quarter, you'll be just a quick boat ride away from Disney Springs, where you'll also find many great dining options.  Wine Bar George, Chef Art Smith's Homecomin', and The BOATHOUSE are a few of my favorite Disney Springs restaurants.

    Holly, if you need any additional restaurant recommendations or any other vacation planning advice, please visit us again.  See ya real soon!
