    My family and I are staying at Bolder Ridge Villas in November. We are only a few days away from our "180 day" dining reservation day. Which method do you feel is better when making our reservations, Online or by phone? Pat C.

    Hi Patricia,

    Ooh...that 180-day point before your arrival is such an exciting time! Being able to make your dining reservations and really see your trip itinerary come together is SO much fun! 

    You are really free to use whichever method you prefer! If you'd like to make your reservations by phone, you may call (407) WDW-DINE or (407) 939-3463 where Cast Members will begin answering phones to take reservations beginning at 7:00 a.m. Eastern time. The benefit to calling is that you are able to ask any questions you may have about anything dining related. However, if you don't have any questions, one major benefit to making your dining reservations online is that you are able to access times even earlier. When booking online, you'll be able to make dining reservations beginning at 5:45 a.m. Eastern time. Believe it or not, that hour or so really could make a difference, as some restaurants are super popular and fill up really quickly! Plus, since you're staying at a Disney Resort hotel, you'll have the added benefit of being able to make your dining selections for the entire length of your vacation, up to 10 days, at that 180-day point, which will definitely help you find that perfect reservation!

    With magical Character dining experiences, fun dinner shows, and cuisines to please every palate, you're sure to find many special and delicious meals to make your vacation even more wonderful! Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Patricia, and have a truly magical...and delicious...vacation!
