    Hi, my family is going to Disney in March and I was wondering how far in advance could I get dinner reservations, character dinning, etc

    Hi Kyleigh! I love Disney Dining! It is just one more magical part of the entire Walt Disney World Resort vacation experience! I’m glad that you’re asking your question so far in advance! We’re going to have you all set to make your advanced dining reservations!

    Guests can make their Disney Dining reservations 60-days in advance of their vacation arrival date! You can make your dining reservations beginning as early as 5:45 AM EST for select Disney Dining experiences. All other reservations begin to be taken at 6:00 AM EST. Recently, I have found the best way to make dining reservations is through the My Disney Experience app. You can also use the online reservation or call the Disney Dining reservations line at (407)-WDW-DINE. One note of caution is that the phone line does not begin taking calls until 7:00 AM EST. Your best chance of scoring the highly popular character dining experiences is to make your reservations using the app or the online version, as early as possible, on your 60-day mark!

    Another quick tip is to be sure to have a credit card with you when making your reservations. Many character dining experiences require a credit card to hold your reservation. And, be sure to have your camera or phone with you during your dining experience! You can get some great selfies with the characters playfully posing in the background! I hope this information helps with your planning! Come back to visit planDisney as you continue dreaming of your vacation!
