    how far in advance should we make Dining reservations?

    Welcome to planDisney, Liza!

    It is a pleasure to answer your first question and help you plan a pixie-dusted Walt Disney World Resort vacation. One of my favorite things while planning a visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth is making dining reservations! I love returning to my favorite restaurants, but I always try booking different locations each time I visit. 

    Because so many restaurants are popular, Guests are advised to make reservations online or via the My Disney Experience app up to 60 days in advance. If you are staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, you can make reservations up to 60 days in advance, plus the length of your stay up to 10 days. If you are unable to make a reservation, I recommend that you keep trying! Many Guests make last-minute changes and cancellations, and you may come across availability the day before your visit!

    planDisney tips: You are also welcome to use the My Disney Experience app to add your party to the walk-up list at select table-service restaurants (subject to availability). Another great alternative is taking advantage of Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering to order and pay for meals at quick-service locations anytime, anywhere!

    I hope this information is helpful, Liza! Come back to visit us if you have additional questions, and be sure to check our Panel Extras for more tips and advice!

    Best magical wishes,
