    I have read you want reservations for many table service restaurants 30+ days out. But it seems like you don't know what days resort guests get extra hours in certain parks. Would like to pick park and dining in parks for days with longest hours. Help!

    Hi James,

    Dining reservations can actually be made 180 days in advance and if you're after a popular restaurant or are visiting at a busy time of year I would really recommend you do book then. Park hours are also released a long way in advance and you can currently view the schedule for the next 6 months plus the current month. You can view all of these on the main Disney website or a great unofficial website that shows all the park hours in a handy table can be found at

    Reservations can be made either online on the dining pages of or by calling 407-939-3463.

    I know it is very hard to plan where you'd like to eat 6 months in advance, I find it hard enough to know what I'm eating tomorrow, but it really is worth planning it out to guarantee you get your chosen restaurants!

    Happy planning,
