    Can I make dining reservations farther than 180 days out if I secure it with my credit card??

    Hi, Dana!

    I love that you want to get your dining booked! My family is all about the wonderful restaurants around Walt Disney World, so we like to book as soon as possible to make sure to reserve all of our favorite locations.

    The booking window for dining reservations opens up 180 days in advance. If you are staying at a Disney Resort hotel, the bookings still open up 180 days in advance, BUT you can book your entire stay (up to 10 days). It is nice to get all your reservations made at one time. Regardless of when you book or where you are staying, reservations must have a credit card guarantee to hold the date and time for your party.

    While there are many great dining locations to enjoy with reservations, don't forget some of the wonderful quick service options. With quick service, there is no need for a reservation. Simply walk up and order when you are ready to dine! One of my new favorite locations is the Satu'li Canteen in Disney's Animal Kingdom. You simply must try the cheeseburger pods! There is even a mobile ordering option so your food is waiting upon arrival. It is even fun to order a meal at Walt Disney World!

    Wishing you many delicious meals during your visit to Walt Disney World.
