    When do the 2018 rates get posted? What is the earliest date one can make a dining reservation?

    Hi Glenn,

    Glad to know you are busy planning a vacation to Walt Disney World Resort for next year. You are not the only one. I am also planning mine!

    Did you know you could book a hotel stay at a Disney Resort Hotel up to 500 days in advance? You cannot do it online, and instead need to speak to a Vacation Planning Specialist at (407) 939-1936, or your travel agent. This is for room-only reservations and rates are subject to change once next year's rates are finalized. Only Mickey knows when this will happen, but in years past, they have been released sometime in the spring. Keep an eye to the Disney Parks Blog for announcements.

    One last tip: you can book dining reservations up to 180 days in advance. If you have a resort reservation, you can make them 180 days from your Check-In date, for your entire stay, up to 10 days. Simply visit the Walt Disney World restaurants and reservations page. Happy planning!
