    I have a DVC reservation to the Animal Kingdom Villas in October. Am I able to book dining reservations 180 + 10 days in advance or am I only able to book 180 in advance since I am on a DVC reservation?

    Hi Ashley,

    Oh, you are going to LOVE staying at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas! This Resort hotel is one of my family's very favorite places to stay! Are you staying at Kidani Village or Jambo House? Both of them are wonderful! Did you know that when you stay as a Guest of one of them, that you will be able to enjoy the Recreation opportunities and amenities at both of them?

    I'm also happy to let you know that yes, when you stay at a Disney Resort hotel, including through a Disney Vacation Club reservation, you are able to make your advanced dining reservations for the entire length of your stay, up to 10 days, beginning 180 days before your arrival. This is a great perk, and will allow you the most flexibility with the most availability to find the perfect dining locations and times for your family.

    During your stay at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas, be sure to take some time to pay attention to the details and soak up the culture of Africa. The captivating music, stunning artwork, amazing people, delicious food, and incredible wildlife all help you feel like you're IN Africa! I'd definitely encourage you to ask for a Recreation Calendar when you arrive. You'll find a variety of special and unique activities offered that my family always really enjoys.

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Ashley, and have a truly magical vacation!
