    If I don't have Disney dining plan but I am staying in Disney hotel, when can I start making dining reservations?

    Hello, Holly!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! You can begin making your advanced dining reservations 180 days before your visit. Reservations can be made online, via the My Disney Experience mobile app or by calling (407) WDW-DINE or (407) 939-3463. You will be asked to provide a credit card when making a dining reservation. Some restaurants use this as a placeholder, while others require payment at the time of booking. Be assured that restaurants that require a credit card guarantee will only charge if you do not show up for the reservation or do not cancel within the restaurant's cancellation policy. Please let us know if you would like restaurant recommendations or have other questions as you continue to plan your visit!

    Have a magical day!
