    How far in advance can we make dinner and show reservations? Is there a way to get reservations even earlier ?

    Hey there Ann and welcome to planDisney!

    I love how eager and excited you are for your August visit to the Walt Disney World Resort. It's great that you want to get your activities reserved as early as possible. You'll definitely want to stay on top of things to catch as many offerings as possible for The World's Most Magical Celebration! Let's talk you through what you'll need to know to get this party started.

    The earliest you can make Advanced Dining Reservations and reserve Enchanting Extras is at 5:45 am EST exactly 60 days prior to your arrival. Pro-tip: You can book your meals right in your My Disney Experience app! Just tap the search icon at the bottom of your screen and type in the restaurant you want a reservation for. Tap the Reserve Dining icon and enter your Party Size and the date you want. Specify the time for your reservation and put a credit card on file. Don't worry, the credit card is only there to guarantee your reservation. You won't be charged for anything unless y'all don't show up or don't cancel before the cancellation period laid out for you in the Guest Policies. Agree to those Guest Policies and tap the green Book Now button and you're all set!

    Ann, after looking at your travel dates I absolutely have to recommend you grab some tickets to experience Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party for its return after a 2-year hiatus. It's sure to be a spooktacularly good time. If y'all are Guests at a Disney Resorts Collection Resort hotel, you can purchase tickets as early as May 12th. If you're staying somewhere else, don't worry. You can make your ticket purchases on May 18th! If you have any other questions, come back again for another chat!

    Happy planning!
