    How far in advance can you make dining reservations at the Walt Disney World resort?

    Hi Chris, 

    Thank you for sending your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  I am so excited to read that you are beginning to plan your Walt Disney World Resort Vacation.  Making Advanced Dining Reservations will help make your visit run smoothly while you get to dine at some of Walt Disney World Resort’s incredible Dining Locations. 

    Advanced Dining Reservations can be made online or by calling (407) 939-1947 up to 180 days in advance. One of the many perks of staying at Walt Disney World Resort is that guests are able to make Advanced Dining Reservations for their whole visit at the 180 day mark, which means they only have to go online once, making the process a little easier.  Don’t worry, if you are not staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, you will be able to make your Advanced Dining Reservations 180 days in advance, however you will need to make each day separately, as the 180 day mark approaches for each day.  

    Another important date to remember for your Walt Disney World Resort Vacation is when you are able to make FastPass+ Selections.  Guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel who have purchased Theme Park Tickets will be able to make FastPass+ Selections 60 days in advance, while guests staying offsite are able to make FastPass+ Selections 30 days in advance.  This is important because FastPass+ guarantees your party entrance to your three must do attractions with little to no wait time.  

    I hope you enjoy planning and booking your Advanced Dining Reservations, Chris.  Please let us know if you have any other questions, we are always happy to help.
