    I have heard that if staying in a deluxe resort, you can make reservations 190 days in advance of your reservation start date. True? Also, does Cinderella's Royal Table open reservations for the full 10-day window or only 180 days of the reservation?

    Hi, Carrie! There are so many wonderful benefits to being a Guest of a Walt Disney World Resort hotel. The benefit that you are referring to is provided to Guests of all Resort hotel levels - Value, Moderate, Deluxe and Deluxe Villa. These Guests do have the ability to book various dining and activity reservations in a distinct way.

    Beginning 180 days from the date of check-in, Resort hotel Guests can begin making their dining and certain activity reservations for the entire length of stay, up to 10 days. At the pre-vacation 180-day mark at around 6:00 a.m. online, you could sign on to your My Disney Experience account associated with your hotel reservation and make an Advanced Dining Reservation at Be Our Guest Restaurant, California Grill, or even Cinderella's Royal Table. Sometimes the online system can be sleepy, so you may need to call Disney Dining at (407) WDW-DINE, or (407) 939-3463, to complete booking of your reservations. If you plan on taking part in a special activity, such as Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, The Pirate's League, or maybe the Wonderland Tea Party during your trip, you can also make those reservations as the 180-day window opens.

    How this differs from Guests not staying on property is that non-Resort hotel Guests will need to book their various reservations one day at a time, 180 days in advance of each day. So, 180 days in advance of check-in, you could book reservations for that day only. The next morning, you could book for the second day of your trip, and so on.

    I hope this clears it up for you, Carrie. Please let us know if you have any further questions.
