    I am new to the Disney experience! We are going next summer! How far in advance do I schedule my dining and character dining? I don't want to miss anything. Seems like a ton of things to prepare for! Thanks

    Hi Misty,

    Advanced Dining Reservations for character meals and regular restaurants can be made up to 180 days in advance of the first day of your vacation. Many of the popular restaurants book up 180 days out, so you definitely will want to plan accordingly. Be Our Guest, Cinderella's Royal Table, Chef Mickey's, Le Cellier and others are considered "must-do's" by many guests and the spots go quickly. You can make your reservations online 180 days in advance beginning at 6:00 a.m. EST. You can make them via phone by calling 407-WDW-DINE starting at 7:00 a.m.

    Wishing you a wonderful vacation,
