    We are going DW in November this year and are staying offsite. My question is do I have to already have my park tickets purchased before I make my 180 day out reservations for dining?

    Hello there Ashley and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, we're so glad you've come to us for some Walt Disney World Resort planning advice! 
    For me planning and arranging my Advanced Dining Reservations is just the beginning of the real magic, so arriving at that 180 day countdown marker always makes me very happy indeed.
    I'm delighted to advise that it's not necessary to hold valid Disney Theme Park tickets to enable you to make Advanced Dining Reservations.  
    When that magical 180 day point is reached reservations can easily be made by calling the Reservation Center on 407 939 3463 or online using My Disney Experience or on the move with My Disney Experience Mobile App - you will need to have your credit card to hand to secure your reservations.  
    Have a great Disney day.
