    Our family has reservations for a visit Sept.23-29,2018. It’s coming up to our 180 window to make reservations for dining and my question is can we make all our reservations at one time for the week on that day or do we make one reservation per day

    Hi Cathy!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Oooooh - booking Advanced Dining Reservations is one of the first of many fun Walt Disney World Resort pre-vacation milestones that your family will reach as you get closer to your actual vacation! Do you already have a list of where you hope to dine?

    I'm happy to say guests who are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel may book up to 10 continuous days of dining in one swoop once your 180 day advance dining window opens. You'll be able to make these reservations at 7 A.M. EST both through your My Disney Experience Account, as well as by calling the Disney Dining phone like at (407) WDW-DINE or (407) 939-3463.

    Guests who are staying at a non-Disney Resort Hotel will be able to book dining reservations in advance. However they will need to call or log-in at each days initial 180 day mark to make their dining reservations for the rest of their trip.

    But don't fret should you not get a booking that you were really after as cancelations happen all the time. It's also kind of fun to leave at least one meal unbooked to decide where to dine the day-of based on what's available. My family likes to search for open tables from our My Disney Experience App while standing in a queue. It's a fun way to get out of our comfort zone and to try something new.

    I hope this helped, Cathy, and I hope that you're able to get all the reservations you were after. We'll See You Real Soon!
