    Hi , I just booked my Disney vacation and I was wondering when can I start making my reservation for dinner , meet and greets etc. Charline

    Hello Charline, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Congratulations on booking your magical vacation for later this year.

    There are a lot of perks that come with staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel. Complimentary transportation within the resort and also to and from the Orlando International Airport. You will receive a complimentary MagicBand for everyone in your travel party. You will be able to make dining and merchandise purchases and charge them back to your room. You can also take advantage of Extra Magic Hours, which will give you early access or extended evening access to designated theme parks during your stay. In my opinion, one of the most important reasons to stay at a Resort Hotel is the ability to make all of your Advanced Dining Reservations for the entire length of your trip 180 days before your arrival. You can begin to make your reservations on June 4, 2018, online or by phone by calling (407) WDW-DINE or (407) 939-3463 at 7:00 A.M. Eastern Time.

    Since you are already a Resort Hotel guest, if you have a prepaid admission linked to your My Disney Experience account, you can begin to make your FastPass+ selections 60 days in advance of your arrival. You will be able to log on at 7:00 A.M. on October 2, 2018, to make your selections for rides, shows, attractions and character meeting experiences for the entire length of your magical vacation. I hope that will help with your planning. If you have any other questions before you arrive, please visit us again.

    See ya real soon,
