    do i have to make reservations for all my table and buffet lunch dinners 180 days before i arrive or can i do some a little closer to my visit?

    Hi, Ronald! 

    Making your Advanced Dining Reservations is an exciting part of planning your Walt Disney World® Resort vacation. Deciding where to dine is half the fun! 

    When booking your table service or buffet dining options, your booking window opens at the 180-day mark, that's not when you have to start booking. In fact, you can book a dining reservation online up to 90 minutes before you are looking to dine. That said, it is highly recommended you book your preferred dining experiences as close to the 180-day mark as possible. This will increase your chances of getting those reservations that book quickly, especially if you will be traveling during peak vacation times. By booking your Advanced Dining Reservations online you are also able to book at your convenience.

    I hope you find this information helpful, Ronald. Please do not hesitate to ask me any further questions! 

    Happy Dining!
