    My 180 mark for making advance dining reservations will be May 18, 2014. My question is, Will I be able to make ALL dining reservations for the entire 9 days of my trip on May 18th? I have been told different answers by Disney cast members online chat.

    Hi Jennifer!  Thanks for asking your question here on the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  It is confusing when getting conflicting information.  

    I think you will be happy to know that you will be able to make all of your dining reservations on May 18th. The rule of thumb is 180 days plus 10.  If you were staying longer than 10 days, you would have to call again on a different day but 10 days or less is fine.  

    If you are looking for a dining recommendation, although I know you didn't ask, I love eating at 'Ohana for dinner.  We try to eat there for dinner 2 times while at Walt Disney World.  We like to get a dining reservation for one hour prior to the fireworks over Magic Kingdom begin.  While we are finishing up our meal with dessert, the lights dim and the music from the show gets pipped in.  We request a window seat and have an amazing view of the fireworks.  It is such a fun way to end a day at Walt Disney World. 

    Have a magical vacation.  If I can help you with anything else, please let me know.  Happy planning!

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
