    I am planning to visit in December, I understand that I can make dining reservations for the entire trip at the 180 day mark of the first day of my trip, is that correct. Thankyou.

    Hello, Jennifer,

    Thank you for sending your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  If you are visiting Walt Disney World as a Disney resort guest, you may make 10 days worth of dining reservations when you are 180 days out.  If you aren't a Disney resort guest, you will need to make them day by day.  

    When I'm making dining reservations, I utilize the independent website pscalculator.net to help me determine what day I can begin making reservations.  Then,  online dining reservations can be made at 6:00 AM Eastern Standard/Daylight Time or by phone (407) WDW-DINE at 7:00 AM Eastern Standard/Daylight Time.  I also make my reservations by priority rather than chronologically. I find, too, that being flexible with my plans also helps with acquiring reservations at some of the more popular restaurants. 

    Happy Disney dining!  Please let us know if we can help with any further questions. -Kara
