    I was planning to reserve my dining 180 days out, and purchase park tickets 65 days out. Will I be able to reserve dining INSIDE the parks if I haven't yet purchased our park tickets? I want to be sure I'm ready at 180days.

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with an excellent question, John!

    One of the things I like the most while organizing my visits to the Walt Disney World Resort is making advanced dining reservations. I really enjoy planning ahead, and being able to book my favorite restaurants gives me great peace of mind. We are all foodies in my family, so it is very important for us to get reservations at the places we love.

    I have good news for you, John! You do not need to have theme parks tickets linked to your Disney account in order to make dining reservations, even if the restaurants are located inside the theme parks. You are welcome to start booking 180 days in advance online, using the My Disney Experience mobile app, or calling (407) 939-3463. Please note, however, that you will need valid admission to enter the theme parks for your reservations, so plan accordingly.

    Thank you for sending another question our way! I hope this helps you while planning and that you are able to book your favorite dining destinations.

    Best magical wishes,
