    How far ahead can I make dining reservations?

    Hi Lisa!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with this question about Advance Dining Reservations. Our family enjoys dining at those hard-to-get locations like Cinderella's Royal Table, so I understand the importance of knowing exactly when you can start making your reservations!

    The booking window varies depending on whether you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel or at an off-property location. If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, you can begin making your Advance Dining Reservations 180 days before check-in plus up to 10 days of your on-property stay. This means that Disney Resort hotel Guests who are staying for 10 days can make reservations for the last day of their trip 190 days in advance, rather than just 180 days in advance.

    If you are staying off-property, you can begin making Advance Dining Reservations 180 days prior to the start of your stay, but only on a day-by-day basis. If you want to make reservations for every day of your trip, you will have to do so 180 days out from each day of your stay.

    You can make your dining reservations through My Disney Experience either online or via the My Disney Experience Mobile app. You can also call Disney Dining Reservations.

    I hope this helps with your planning, Lisa! Please stop back and let me know if you have any additional questions.

    Wishing you many magical memories,
