    What Exactly is a Advanced Dining Reservation?

    Howdy Ian!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  I love chatting about dining!  Thank you for sharing your question with us! 

    When I get a “Rumbly in my Tumbly” at the Walt Disney World Resort, I am always thankful for our Advance Dining Reservations!  Currently, you can make Advance Dining Reservations 60 days before your check-in date!  The process is so easy, and you can make these reservations from your smart device through your My Disney Experience!  Just scan through the current restaurants available, browse the menu, and place your booking!  Once you have made your dining reservation in advance of your vacation, you are all set!  Advance Dining Reservations make your Walt Disney World vacation stress free and allow you a designated time to sit down and enjoy some delicious food and recharge!

    Since your vacation is in December of next year, I highly recommend checking the Disney Parks Blog and the Walt Disney World website for all updates.   You will be updated on how far in advance dining reservations can be made and for a list of all restaurants that will be available at that time!

    I am so excited for 2021!  Mickey and Minnie opened their doors to guests in 1971, so 2021 will mark 50 years of “Making Dreams Come True!’  The 50th year celebration will be something no one will want to miss!  I know our pal Mickey loves to throw a party; I cannot imagine what awaits guests in 2021!

    There is another big surprise that awaits all guests in 2021!  TRON, a coaster-style adventure through the digital frontier on your very own lightcycle!  I look forward to boarding my lightcycle and taking off on this new adventure for 2021, located at the Magic Kingdom Park!

    While you are planning, if you have any more questions, please come back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  We look forward to helping you with all your future planning questions, Ian!

    See Ya Real Soon,
