    I have 2 questions regarding meal reservations: 1) Is it 180 days per reservation or 180 days before the arrival date? 2) Do we have to pay in advance, reserve w/ a credit card or just make the reservation on the honor system? Thank U 4 ur help

    Hi Susana!

    The answer depends on whether you are staying on Walt Disney World property or not.  If you're staying in a Disney owned and operated hotel, then you can make reservations at 180 days before your check-in date and then for up to 10 days.  It's a perk for staying in a Disney owned and operated hotel.  If you're not, then you can only make it 180 days before the date you want to dine.

    Most reservations do not require a credit card, but the most popular restaurants and shows, such as the Hoop Dee Doo Musical Review, do.

    Making Advanced Dining Reservations (ADRs) is definitely the way to go.  Otherwise you risk being unable to get the dining experience you want during your trip!  Good luck!
