    Hello! Is the Dining Plan required to be able to book all of your ADRs once you hit 180 days from Day 1 of your trip?

    Hey Ashley!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Thank you for sending us your great question about making dining reservations for Walt Disney World Resort restaurants.

    Ashley, you do not need a Disney Dining Plan in order to start making dining reservations 180 days in advance of your vacation. In fact, all Guests can make dining reservations 180 days in advance of their Walt Disney World Resort arrival date.

    As a special bonus, Disney Resort hotel Guests can make dining reservations for the entire length of their Disney Resort hotel stay—up to 10 days at a time. If you do not have a Disney Resort hotel reservation associated to your Disney account, you can still make dining reservations 180 days in advance of your Walt Disney World Resort arrival date, but only for one day at a time. You can start making reservations by signing in to your Disney Account or by calling (407) WDW-DINE/(407) 939-3463.

    Disney Mom Tip: The Disney Reservation Center is available by phone from 7:00 AM to 11:00 PM ET Monday-Friday, and 7:00 AM to 8:00 PM ET on Saturday and Sunday. I suggest calling early in order to maximize your chances of getting those really popular dining reservations! I recommend making reservations for restaurants such as Cinderella’s Royal Table and Chef Mickey’s as soon as your “reservation window” opens.

    Ashley, I hope I have helped answer your questions. If you require further clarification, please visit the Disney Parks Moms Panel again.

    All Ears,
