    I know one can make dining reservations 180 days out. Does this allow one to make reservations for the rest of the stay also??

    Hi Len, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    It sounds like you take planning your dining experiences during your Walt Disney World Resort vacation as seriously as I do. It is a constant struggle for me to narrow down the list of restaurants to visit each trip because my family has so many favorites! If truth be told, we have frequently planned our Theme Park experiences around our dining reservations as opposed to the other way around. Priorities, right?

    Len, you are quite correct that the magic day for making Disney dining reservations is 180 days in advance. I encourage you to diarize that date as many of the popular restaurants, such as Be Our Guest Restaurant, will book early.

    If you happen to be staying at a Disney Resort hotel, I am happy to confirm that 180 days from your date of check in, you will be able to make dining reservations for your entire length of stay, for up to 10 days. This is a great perk and I definitely encourage you to take advantage of it if you happen to be staying at a Disney Resort hotel. In order to ensure that you will be all set to make those dining reservations on the 180 day mark, be sure to link your Disney Resort hotel reservation in advance to your My Disney Experience account. Then you should be all set and ready to go!

    Len I hope this information is helpful as you continue to plan for your upcoming trip. Should you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to send them our way. We would love to hEAR from you again!

    Bon Appétit!
