    Hi Can I make dinner reservations before I book my holiday package? I would like to book a character dining experience.

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Narelle! 

    I hope you are excited to begin planning your magical vacation to Walt Disney World® Resort. Planning and choosing your Disney dining options is half the fun. 

    Yes! You can absolutely make an Advanced Dining Reservation without having booked your Magic Your Way Vacation Package. Any guest, whether local, staying off-property, or just passing through for the day, can make dining reservations online, or by phone, 180 days prior to their desired day and time and at any Walt Disney World® Resort dining location. 

    I hope this helps, Narelle! You a free to book that character dining experience you're hoping for even though you haven't booked a package yet. 

    Please let us know if you have any further questions. We are here to help.
