    How do I determine when I am exactly 180 days out to make dining reservations for my upcoming June 13th arrival?

    Hey, David! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thanks so much for stopping by with your question. To me, there are two very important dates related to our Walt Disney World Resort vacations - the day I can begin making dining reservations and the day I can begin making FastPass+ selections. You do not want to be late for these very important dates! There are lots of great dining locations and FastPass+ selections, but there are some that seem to get booked up faster than others. It never fails, my daughters will always want to include some of those in our vacation plans. So, here I sit, marking those important dates in my calendar!

    You may begin making dining reservations 180 days in advance of your Disney Resort Hotel check-in date. Considering your June 13, 2020, arrival, this puts you at December 16, 2019, for the day you can make your dining selections. That day is quickly approaching, so make sure you have put together a day-to-day itinerary to help guide you in making your meal plans. While you are marking dates down in your calendar, be sure to jot down your FastPass+ selection day! Guests staying at a Disney Resort Hotel can begin making those 60 days in advance, which will be April 14, 2020. The booking calendar on Walt Disney World Resort's website and on the My Disney Experience mobile app usually rolls over to a new day at 7:00 a.m. Make sure you are logged into your account and ready to go with all of your plans at that time!

    I hope this information helps you start making plans for your pixie-dusted adventure! Thanks again for stopping by and please let us know if you have any other questions!
