    How far ahead can you make a dining reservation at Disneyland?

    Hey there and welcome to planDisney, Tim. Thanks for being our guest and sharing this question with us. Eats, treats and everything in between are what I tend to prioritize during my visits, so I'm just thrilled that you asked this question.

    Dining reservations can be made up to 60 days in advance at select restaurants throughout the Disneyland Resort. You are already ahead of the game, Tim. It looks like you can start making dining reservations for the first day of your visit in just under a few months. If you are trying to snag a reservation for a popular spot like Blue Bayou Restaurant or Lamplight Lounge, I recommend being ready right at the 60-day mark. While there's no set time when reservations are released, I've had luck searching right at 6:00 a.m. Pacific Time.

    It looks like you will arrive just before Halloween Time descends upon the Disneyland Resort. I really hope your stay will be long enough to experience at least the first day of the spooky season which starts on August 23rd. This is one of my favorite times of the year to visit the parks. There's nothing quite like seeing the giant Mickey pumpkin when you first walk into the park. 

    Tim, I hope this information is helpful as you prepare to line up all of your dining reservations for your visit. I hope that you are able to get every reservation that you are wishing for. Most of all, I hope that you have a most magical visit to the Happiest Place on Earth!
