    I’m staying at a Disney Resort so how far in advance can I book a dining reservation?

    Hello Nancy, and thank you for bringing your planning question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Kudos to you for planning a trip to the Walt Disney World Resort. Some of the most important reservations you will make, besides your Disney Resort Hotel Room, are your dining reservations. There are so many restaurants to choose from between Disney Springs, Disney Theme Parks and Disney Resort Hotels. Not all restaurants require reservations. Quick service and snack locations do not require them. You can use the My Disney Experience mobile app to order food at locations that offer mobile ordering options.

    Any guest can make advanced dining reservations 180 days prior to your arrival. If you are a guest at a Disney Resort Hotel, you can make reservations for the entire length of your trip. You can make your reservations online or with the My Disney Experience mobile app. Reservations are typically available after 5:45 AM. You can call (407) WDW-DINE or (407) 939-3463 beginning at 7:00 AM daily to speak to a Cast Member to assist you with making your reservations. I highly recommend making advance dining reservations for Character Dining, signature dining, table service dining, dessert parties, and dinner shows. There is cuisine for every palate and the pickiest little eaters. Good luck with your planning and if you need any additional help planning your magical vacation, please come back and visit us again.

    See ya real soon,
