    If I have Disney reservations for five nights, can I make Advanced Dining Reservations 185 day prior to arriving? Or is it 180 days in advance or arriving?

    Hi Daniel!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. With so many popular dining destinations around Walt Disney World Resort, it's great that you are already on top of your Advanced Dining Reservations to ensure you are able to eat as you wish!

    The way the system works for Advanced Dining Reservations is you are able to make a reservation 180 days out from your arrival through the length of stay (or 10 days whichever is shorter). So when your 180 day window opens up for your first day, you'll also be able to book through to your fifth day, so while it's 180 days out from your arrival you are also technically booking 185 days in advance of the last day of your stay. There are several Walt Disney World calculators online, if you Google search you'll be able to enter your arrival date and it'll tell you when your Advanced Dining Reservation and FastPass+ window open up!

    Happy planning and please let us know if we can help in any other way!
