    How far in advance can I make dinner reservations if my stay begins June 7? Looking to make reservations for the week, staying at Old Key West.

    Hi Diane,

    Ooh...I hope that you're having a wonderful time dreaming about your summer adventure to the Walt Disney World Resort! You're going to LOVE the relaxed vibes at Disney's Old Key West Resort and the recently remodeled, spacious rooms!

    With a check-in date of June 7th, I'm happy to let you know that your dining reservation window is open, and since you're staying at a Disney Resort hotel, you may begin making reservations for the entire length of your stay! Reservations may be made beginning 180 days in advance, so your window opened on December 10th. Between all of the fantastic character dining opportunities, dinner shows, and cuisines to please any palate, it can certainly be tough to narrow down your options, but I'm sending some pixie dust that you'll find the perfect dining reservations for your trip!

    Here's a tip for you: While you'll be able to make dining reservations for the entire length of your trip, you'll find that park hours are only released for the next 180 days. If you'd like to be able to plan which park to visit for each day of your trip, I'd recommend checking out touringplans.com where they list park hours 190 days in advance and estimate them even further out than that. While I can't guarantee they're completely accurate until Disney posts their official hours, it's a great place to start! In fact, park hours are always subject to change, so I always like to keep an eye on them every few weeks or so just to make sure I don't want to make any modifications to my plans.

    Thanks so much for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Diane, and please come back and see us again if we can help with anything else as you're planning your trip. I hope that you have a truly magical...and delicious...vacation!
