    I'd like to take advantage of the 180 day advance reservations for dining and am making plans now. However, I am unable to decide on which days we'll be in each park because I don't know when the EMH will be yet. When are these set? Thanks

    Hi Karin! 

    You are smart to start thinking about booking your Advanced Dining Reservations (ADRs) now. I usually start my spreadsheet a year in advance and I list my desired dining reservations, parks to visit each day and even what FastPasses I'd like to book. 

    The Extra Magic Hours are typically listed six months in advance, so these will become available around the same time that your ADR window opens. Typically this information will be available prior to the time you can book your ADR.

    When considering where you want to eat, I have a few suggestions for wonderful restaurants that I love.

    The Boardwalk
    Flying Fish is my favorite restaurant on the Boardwalk. They have wonderful scallops and their sea bass is out of this world! 

    Disney Springs
    Blaze is a new pizza restaurant at Disney Springs. Their pizza is great and while you are at Disney Springs you can check out their new shops, restaurants and entertainment options.

    The Contemporary
    California Grill is a wonderful restaurant atop The Contemporary Resort! Book a reservation near the time Wishes starts. You will be able to watch the fireworks from above on the balcony at the restaurant.
