    How can you book dining 180 days out if Disney doesn’t release magic hours for there parks until later?

    Hi Robyn,

    Ooh...I have a tip I'd be happy to share with you that should help you put an amazing itinerary together so that you're ready when your 180-day window opens to make the perfect dining reservations!

    While the park hours calendar is released 180 days in advance, I know a way that you can have access to 190 days of theme park hours, parade and nighttime show times, and Extra Magic Hours! All you need to do is log in to My Disney Experience and click on "My Itinerary." Over on the left-hand side, you'll see something that says "Add Plans." Click there and choose "Add Parks & Places," then you'll be able to change the calendar date and should have the ability to see all of the details for the next 190 days. It's just a little bit of Disney magic to help you with your planning!

    Once you've had a chance to look through all of the amazing restaurant choices and have decided where and when you'd like to dine, you'll be able to call (407) WDW-DINE or (407) 939-3463 beginning at 7:00 a.m. Eastern time or book online beginning at 5:45 a.m. Eastern time 180 days before your arrival. I'm sending some pixie dust that your plan will come together perfectly, and that you'll be able to find the dining reservations that will fill your tummy with incredible food and your heart with wonderful Disney memories.

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Robyn, and please let us know if we can help with anything else. I hope that you have a truly magical...and delicious...vacation!
