    Hi! This is our first trip to Disney and we are staying at a resort and buying the Disney Dining Plan. We have paid the deposit, but I am wondering whether we have to pay for our vacation in full before booking reservations at the restaurants?

    Hi, Jessica! You do not have to make your final payment before making your Advance Dining Reservations.  Final payments are not usually due until 45 days before your arrival, but you can begin making your dining reservations 180 days out.  I hope this is helpful! Happy planning!
