    We are planning to visit next winter and will be staying outside of the park. How early can we book character lunches and other restaurants? Thanks!

    Hey there, Heather!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question, and I can't wait for you to make the trip to sunny California to visit the Disneyland Resort!

    Dining is always one of our main priorities when trip-planning so I totally understand wanting to make those coveted reservations as soon as possible. No matter if you are staying on property or off property all dining experiences at the Disneyland Resort can be booked up to 60 days in advance online, on the Disneyland app, or by calling (714) 781-3463. Character Dining is always a fun way to enhance a vacation, so I'm super excited you plan on adding this to your itinerary. My personal favorite is Mickey's Tales of Adventure Breakfast Buffet at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa. I just love the array of breakfast favorites as well as inventive, fresh options. It definitely keeps me fueled up for a full day in the parks!

    Some popular dining spots that may book up far in advance are Blue Bayou Restaurant, Carthay Circle Restaurant, Napa Rose, and Steakhouse 55. I also recommend reviewing the many Dining Packages or Dessert Parties available that offer reserved viewing for World of Color, Fantasmic!, or Frozen - Live at the Hyperion. These also tend to book up quickly due to their popularity, so it's good to research before your reservation window opens.

    I hope this helps, and please return if you have any other questions. Have a magical day!
