    I have a Disney World trip planned for April 2017. I know you can book dining reservations 180 out, but what time can I make them on day 180? I can't seem to find a definite answer anywhere!

    Hi Ashlee!

    Thanks for bringing this question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. My family loves dining at popular locations like Cinderella's Royal Table, so I understand the importance of knowing exactly when you can begin making your Advance Dining Reservations.

    You may be finding conflicting information because the time you can begin making Advance Dining Reservations varies depending on whether you are booking online or calling Disney Dining. You can begin making Advance Dining Reservations online (or via the My Disney Experience Mobile app beginning 180 days prior to your arrival at 6:00 a.m. Eastern Standard Time. If you are making your Advance Dining Reservations over the phone, you can begin calling Disney Dining 180 days before your arrival at 7:00 a.m. Eastern Standard Time.

    Did you know? Walt Disney World Resort hotel Guests can make Advance Dining Reservations 180 days from the start of their trip plus up to 10 days of their on-property stay. This means that Disney Resort hotel Guests who are staying for 10 days can make reservations for the last day of their trip 190 days in advance, rather than just 180 days in advance! Guests staying off-property can begin making Advance Dining Reservations 180 days prior to the start of their stay, but only on a day-by-day basis.

    I hope I've cleared up any confusion, Ashlee. Please stop back again soon if you have any additional questions about your upcoming visit to Walt Disney World Resort.

    Wishing you many magical (and delicious!) memories,
