    How far in advance can dining reservations be made if we’re staying at the Grand Floridian Resort?

    Hey there, Nicole, and welcome to planDisney! Thanks for stopping by the panel with your question! I’m excited to see that your question is about my favorite Walt Disney World topic: Disney Food! In my opinion, dining at Disney is its own attraction. I even take a little planning time - if you consider days a little planning time - to map out my exact dining route for each Disney Vacation!

    Nicole, Walt Disney World Guests can begin making dining reservations 60 days before their arrival date. Since you are staying in a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel as part of your visit, you will be able to make dining reservations for your entire vacation (up to 10 days) when your reservation window opens. The Dining Reservation window is a pretty big deal, so I suggest that you go ahead and start planning out your must-have reservations! The window will open at “Mickey Time” - 5:45 am EST for those non-Disneyers - and if you are unable to find availability at your desired restaurant, keep checking back! Availability is constantly changing, so persistence really pays off in this area. 

    I hope this helps, Nicole! If you have more questions while planning your Disney Vacation, stop back by and let me know

    You’ve got a friend in me,
