    I've booked our package for August and paid our deposit but not the full price of our package. Will I be able to make our dinner reservations 180 days out (soon!) or do I need to pay the full balance of the package before making reservations?

    Howdy Ashley!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  Thanks for stopping by with a question about my favorite topic,  food!
    Any Guest who is planning on visiting Walt Disney World is able to make Advanced Dining Reservations up to 180 days before they plan to arrive, even if they don't have a package booked.    For example my mother in law who lives in Florida can make it to the Most Magical Place on Earth for a quick day trip and doesn't usually have a Resort reservation; she books her dining online anytime up to 180 days before she plans to visit.    It will not matter at all if you have paid your balance completely or not.   

    I hope you are able to snag all the Disney Dining spots you have your heart set on.  Some of my favorites are Tusker House Restaurant at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park and Flying Fish located at Disney's Boardwalk Resort.  My mouth is watering just thinking about all the delicious options.

    Enjoy your magical getaway and please stop by again with any additional questions you may have about traveling to Walt Disney World.
