    Hi - I am confused about priority seating.. I have read in a few places that it is available at all restaurants. What is priority seating and how do you get it?

    Hi Julianne,

    Disney dining offers guests the opportunity to make advanced dining reservations 180 days prior to their arrival, which is really a necessity for many of the popular restaurants if not all of them to ensure that you have a spot reserved.  If you happen to have a reservation at a Disney resort, you can actually make reservations for your entire trip when you are 180 days out (up to 10 days worth of reservations). If you do a quick Google search for "priority seating calculator," you'll find a handful of sites to help determine which is the date that you can begin making reservations. 

    Reservations can be made online by clicking here or by calling 407-WDW-DINE. If you'd like to read more about making dining reservations, you can click here

    If you'd like to keep your dining to counter service restaurant, no reservations are needed for those. 

    Thank you for visiting the Moms Panel; please let us know if we can help again.
