    Hello , i am planning a family trip for 14 for my father in laws 80th birthday celebration, i would like to make dinner reservations, we are not going until july 2022, where do i start, i have tickets already, thank you!

    Hi Anthony!

    Welcome to planDisney! Congratulations on planning your upcoming stay! I can't think of a better way of celebrating an octogenarian birthday than at Walt Disney World! Being able to spend time with family and friends at the Most Magical Place on Earth will be a most memorable time for all!

    Currently, guests looking to book dining reservations can do so 60 days prior to arrival. As you and your party will be coming in July 2022, you can begin looking for reservations in April. If you will be staying on property at one of the Disney Resorts Collection hotels, you can make reservations 60 days prior to your arrival date, for the duration of your stay. If you are staying off property, you will need to log in daily, beginning 60 days prior to your stay, in order to book dining reservations. My recommendation for a wonderful dining experience is at California Grill, on or near the time of Disney Enchantment. You will be able to enjoy beautiful views of Magic Kingdom while dining on fantastic West Coast-inspired foods. Once Disney Enchantment fireworks begin, the lights in the restaurant will dim, and the music from the spectacular is piped in. You will have a birdseye view of the fireworks from either your table or the special viewing platform. It is a great way to celebrate and will result in quite the memory for everyone!

    Dining Tip: Reservations open at 6 a.m. 60 days prior to your arrival. I'd recommend being online at 5:50 a.m. in order to secure those hard-to-get dining spots!

    Hope this helps you plan your magical vacation!
