    I want to book reservations prior to my trip to Hollywood studios, Orlando. How can we do this?


    Thanks for asking your question to planDisney!

    I was not sure if you meant that you need to make a theme park reservation with the Park Pass System, Disney Genie+ attraction selections, or if you wanted to make a dining reservation, so let's look at all three. 

    Theme Park Reservations
    Start by going to the main Walt Disney World website and hovering over "My Disney Experience" from the top menu, at the far right. In that drop down menu, select "Disney Park Pass System". From here you can check theme park reservation availability (by ticket type), purchase park admission (if you don't already have tickets) and make a park reservation. Just follow whichever path meets your needs.

    BONUS TIP #1
    If you want to change parks after making your initial suggestions, you can quickly check what parks are available on specific dates by visiting the Theme Park Reservation Availability page.

    Disney Genie+ Selections
    Unfortunately you cannot make Disney Genie+ Lightning Lane, or Individual Lightning Lane selections before the date of your visit. In the case of Genie+ Lightning Lane selections, any guest can start picking those at 7 am that morning. In the case of the Individual Lightning Lane selections, Disney Resort Hotel guests can start making those selections at 7 am of that day, and all other guests can start selecting them at the time the respective park opens. 

    Dining Reservation
    Start by going to the main Walt Disney World Website and hovering over "Things To Do" from the top menu. In that drop down menu, under "Dining" select "All Restaurants". Put in the date, time, and party size, and it will show you all available restaurants.

    BONUS TIP #2
    You can further limit down your results by location, like a particular theme park. 

    I hope this answered your question. If it was not the kind of reservation you were thinking of, please write me back and let me know so I can help further!

    Have a Magical Vacation!
