    Is there an easy way to figure out when the 180 th day is....I don't want to be even one day off with my calculations. So hard to get the best reservations sometimes. Thank you!


    That is a great question!

    I have two ways of doing it. The first is to go on the Walt Disney World website. While their counters have been a bit error-prone, they should say how many days out your vacation is posted in the upper right.

    But a better solution is to go to This is NOT an official Disney website, but you can click on "PS Calculator" punch in your arrival date, and it will tell you on what date your 180-day window opens.

    Now you will see a lot of different dates there. 365 days out, 90 days out, 30 days out, etc. Don't let those confuse you. There used to be a lot of different dates of when you could reserve different things. Hoop Dee Doo Review, for instance, could be booked more than a year out. But now 180 days seems to be the universal date to mark in your calendar!

    Have a magical vacation!
