    Can I book a vacation package, with either a travel agent to on WDW web site, just pay a deposit, and start making dining reservations at 180 days out? Or must it be paid in full?

    Hi Terri,

    There is no need for your vacation to be paid in full before you begin making dining reservations. Off-site guests and Orlando area residents may make reservations up to 180 days in advance of their dining. These guests may make reservations exactly 180 days in advance of each day of their visit.

    Guests with Disney resort reservations may make their dining reservations for their entire trip (of up to 10 days) at the 180 day point. All you need to do this is your resort confirmation number and a credit card.

    Please let us know if you have additional questions. We're happy to help.
