    If I am not staying at a wdw resort property, can I still book my entire week m'a dining reservations 180 days out from the first day? Or will I have to go back each morning at 6am?

    Hi Christina!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with this question about Advance Dining Reservations. Our family enjoys dining at those hard-to-get locations like 'Ohana and Cinderella's Royal Table, so I understand the importance of knowing exactly when you can start making your reservations!

    Because you are staying off-property, you can begin making Advance Dining Reservations 180 days prior to the start of your stay, but only on a day-by-day basis. If you want to make reservations for every day of your trip, you will have to do so 180 days out from each day of your stay. Guests staying on-site at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel can begin making Advance Dining Reservations 180 days before check-in plus up to 10 days of their on-property stay.

    I hope this helps with your planning, Christina! Please stop back and let me know if you have any additional questions about your upcoming trip.

    Wishing you many magical memories!
