    We want to dine at some of the more popular restaurants. To make reservations 6 months in advance, do we need to have already purchased our room and dining plan package? Also will disney price adjust if a special promotion is offered after we book?

    Hi Laura!

    Disney dining is one of my favorite topics! There are so many delightful choices at Walt Disney World Resort and my family loves trying them all.  

    To book dining reservations at the 180-day mark, you do not need to have a room reservation or vacation package booked.  You can make them ahead and then book your trip whenever is convenient for you! Also, if a Special Offer happens to be released after you have booked your reservation, you may call Disney to see if the promotion includes your resort choice and  package options and if so, adjust your price.  Please be aware not all resorts and room selections are included in every promotion, so you may need to make changes to qualify for the special offer released.

    Have a wonderful time planning your dining reservations and if I can be of any assistance, or offer you any recommendations, please let me know.

    Magical Wishes,
