    How many months in advance can I book a character dining?

    Hi Brianna,

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question about advance dining reservations. Character dining is so much fun at Walt Disney World Resort. Even though my son is in his teens now, we still make time for at least one character dining experience on each trip. Although Chef Mickey's has long been one of my favorite character dining experiences, I'm eager to try the new Bon Voyage Breakfast at Trattoria al Forno. Flynn Rider and Rapunzel have been some of my favorite Disney characters since Tangled was released, so I couldn't be happier that these two delightful friends are now greeting guests for breakfast. 

    So, which character dining experiences are you most eagerly anticipating? Once you decide, set a reminder for early May so that you don't forget to call 180 days in advance of your arrival in November to make your dining reservations. The number to call is (407) WDW-DINE, or (407) 939-3463. Or, you could make those dining reservations online if you prefer.

    I'll keep my fingers crossed that you will be able to schedule the character dining experiences you seek.

    Wishing you many magical memories in November,
