    We will be going to Disney World in August 2021. How far in advance can we make dining reservations if we are staying at the Dolphin hotel

    Hello Guadalupe! Thanks for bringing a great question! There are so many delicious Disney Dining locations throughout the Walt Disney World Resort! I am glad to see you planning so far in advance! That is the best strategy of all!

    At this time, all Guests, including those staying at the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel, can make advanced dining reservations 60-days in advance of their vacation arrival date, plus up to 10-days of your stay! Dining reservations can be booked online at the Walt Disney World Resort website. You can also book your reservations using your My Disney Experience account.

    Upon reopening this summer, the Walt Disney World Resort has made some important updates for Guests planning to do some Disney Dining. This information will be helpful as you plan your advanced dining reservations! 

    Guadalupe, one of the things I love most about Disney Dining is the opportunity to see the Disney characters! Character dining for breakfast is currently available at Topolino's Terrace at Disney's Riviera Resort! Character dining can be enjoyed for lunch and dinner at The Garden Grill Restaurant! Beginning on December 16, 2020 Chef Mickey himself will begin hosting Guests for character dining at Chef Mickey's at Disney's Contemporary Resort!

    Have a delicious Disney vacation! Come back to planDisney as you continue making your plans!
