    How far in advance do park reservations open for Disney World. And is it better to wait to book your park reservations until after you've booked any restaurant or enchanted extras to give you more flexibility of the days you book those on.

    Hey, howdy, hey Amber, and welcome back to the most magical place on the internet to answer your Disney vacation planning questions.

    Theme Park Reservations may be made as soon as you have purchased your tickets. As an example, I am currently able to book a Park Pass Reservation for January 31, 2025, and all theme parks are available. Personally, I let food and experiences be my guide since there are fewer of those reservations than Park Passes. If there is a particular dining experience or Enchanting Extras I am looking for then I will decide on which theme park after I have secured that reservation. It is important to try and book your theme park reservation immediately afterward.

    Advance dining and Enchanting Extras reservations may be made 60 days in advance around 6:00 a.m. Eastern Standard Time each morning. I recommend you log in to your My Disney Experience account from a computer (not on the My Disney Experience app) around 5:45 a.m. and navigate to the reservation page of your top priority restaurant or experience. Sometimes the reservations drop before 6:00 a.m. Refresh the screen every couple of minutes as needed or change the date to locate a reservation.

    planDisney Pro Tip: Some reservations are more challenging to get than others. Here is what I do if I do not see my desired times. 1. Start at the end of your trip and work backward. Guests staying at a Disney Resort hotel can make reservations 60 days in advance for their entire trip up to 10 days. Guests not staying at a Disney Resort hotel may only make reservations 60 days in advance, one day at a time. 2. Be flexible with dining times such as a later breakfast or earlier dinner and you will have more luck. 3. Check daily as Guests' plans change.

    Amber, please follow up with me directly if you have any other questions about your enchanted Disney vacation.

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories.
