    Hi there, I'm just wondering what the current dining reservation limit is - once upon a time it was 180 days prior to check in. What is it currently? (May 2021)

    Hello, Christie! I'm so glad you've stopped by planDisney with your question. 

    Since the reopening of Walt Disney World last summer a few changes have been made to the planning process. One of these changes is the advanced dining reservations. Currently, reservations can be made only 60 days in advance. You can make advanced dining reservations online starting at 6:00 a.m. Mickey Mouse's time or over the phone by calling 407-WDW-DINE starting at 7:00 a.m.  There has not been any announcement made as to if or when we might go back to the 180 days prior for dining reservations. But if something changes, you will be able to find all of the details over on the Disney Parks Blog. That's my go-to source for all things Walt Disney World updates right now. 

    Christie, have you ever eaten at The BOATHOUSE at Disney Springs? If not, you've got to add it to your must-try list. It's my current go-to and so delicious. I've been known to make the 8-hour drive on occasional weekends just because a reservation there opened up - it's that good! First of all the restaurant is so pretty and it's set right on the lake at Disney Springs and provides stunning views of the sunset and then Disney Springs coming to life with lights at dusk. It's a gorgeous view. There is something on the menu for everyone. While it's considered a seafood restaurant, they are owned by a famous steakhouse so the meat selections there are amazing as well. If you like seafood then my recommendation is the lobster roll, served warm with butter and a side of their truffle fries. That is my current go-to order and my mouth is watering just typing it all out. If you can snag a reservation at The BOATHOUSE, I highly recommend it! Another great restaurant to try to grab a reservation at is Topolino's Terrace - Flavors of the Riviera at Disney's Riviera Resort. Breakfast is a character meal with all of my favorites like Mickey, Minnie and the rest of the gang. Breakfast is really delicious and even though you order off of a menu, you are able to have as much as you'd like. I really enjoy ordering the quiche when I am there but then I have to get a side of Mickey waffles because ...well, it's Mickey waffles! Characters, right now, aren't visiting individual tables but are dancing, waving, and posing for pictures throughout the restaurant and it's just a really fun experience. 

    I hope this helps, Christie. If you have any other questions before your trip, please feel free to come back and ask me. I'm happy to help. Have fun and happy planning!

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
