    Hi there. Can we do dinner reservations ahead of time even without the DDP? We plan to stay in the Disney Resorts.

    Hello Sienna, and thank you for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with a great planning question.

    I am so excited to hear that you are already planning a great vacation to the Walt Disney World Resort for early 2019! I am also happy to tell you that any guest can make Advance Dining Reservations 180 days prior to their arrival. A dining plan is not required to make reservations. However, reservations are highly recommended for table service, signature dining locations, and dinner shows.

    Since you are a guest at a Disney Resort Hotel, you can make your reservations for the entire length of your trip, up to 10 days. Your arrival date is less than 180 days away, so you can make your reservations now. There are 2 ways you can make dining reservations, online or by using the My Disney Experience mobile app. You can also make your reservations with a Cast Member by calling (407) WDW-DINE or (407) 939-3463. You have hundreds of restaurants to choose from between the theme parks, resort hotels, and Disney Springs. There is a menu for every palate and every budget. Good luck with your planning, and if you need any recommendations for celebrations or special dietary needs, please come back and visit us again.

    See ya real soon,
