    I'm planning for a trip in December. I would like to make dining reservations when they become available but am wondering if I need to have park tickets purchased before then. I'd like to wait but if we need to purchase them we will!

    Hi Megan,

    Good news! You do not need to have your park tickets in order to make advanced dining reservations either inside or outside the theme parks. Feel free to make you reservations 180 days in advance of your visit.

    However, you do need valid tickets in order to make your FastPass+ selections in advance. The program is still evolving, but as of right now, guests at Walt Disney World resorts who have valid tickets linked to My Disney Experience can make up to three FastPass+ selections per day 60 days in advance. Guests who are not staying in Disney resort can make their FastPass+ selections up to 30 days in advance.

    I hope that clarifies things for you. Please let us know if we can answer any other questions for you as you make your plans. Enjoy!
