    How far in advance can I make dinner reservations?

    Hi Larry!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Dining reservations are recommended, and can be made up to 180 days in advance, either online or by using your My Disney Experience account.  Cinderella's Royal Table is probably the most sought-after location because you will dine with some of the Disney Princesses inside Cinderella Castle in Magic Kingdom Park, and if you want to make a reservation there I would recommend that you are ready as soon as reservations open up, as early as 5.45am on your 180-day mark.  Character dining is also very popular, along with signature dining.  In particular, Chef Mickey's (at Disney's Contemporary Resort), 1900 Park Fare (at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa), Storybook Dining at Artist Point with Snow White (at Disney's Wilderness Lodge), California Grill with some of the best views on property from the 15th floor of Disney's Contemporary Resort and Be Our Guest Restaurant at Magic Kingdom Park, not surprisingly as you will meet the Beast after you have enjoyed a delicious dinner in his castle!

    If you have difficulty in securing your favourite places, try looking at different dates and times, and its worth continuing to check for openings as cancellations do occur, especially nearer to the date as Guests change their plans while they are actually on vacation.

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions. We will be happy to help you plan your magical vacation and keep your eye on the Disney Parks Blog for all the latest official news and updates on events that may be happening during your stay.
