    How early in advance can a resort guest make dining reservations?

    Hi Brandi,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thanks for asking about my favorite topic - food!

    All Guests can make dining reservations 180 days in advance.  If you'll be staying at a Disney Resort hotel, you can make your dining reservations for your entire stay (up to 10 consecutive days) on that date.  All other Guests can book those one day at a time as the 180-day mark is reached.

    You have a few ways to make those reservations - through the Dining page of the Walt Disney World website, using the My Disney Experience mobile app or by calling (407) WDW-DINE (939-3463).  Online and mobile app reservations generally open at 6:00 a.m. (Eastern time) and the phone lines at 7:00 a.m. (Eastern time).  If you have a specific restaurant in mind that you'd like to experience (especially if it's one that's really popular), the closer to that 180-day mark that you can make your reservation, the best chance you'll have to get exactly the location, date and time that you want.  

    Sending pixie dust that you get all the dining reservations you're dreaming of for your vacation, Brandi!  Please visit us here again if we can help answer any other questions.
