    How soon can you make dinning res. And what time

    It's great to see you here today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Lindley!

    The booking window for advanced dining reservations opens up 180 days in advance, so based on your arrival day you can begin making your reservations right now! At the 180-day mark, you can begin making reservations at 6 a.m. Eastern time, and I recommend getting up early and making those bookings as soon as you can if you're trying to get a table at popular dining locations like Be Our Guest Restaurant and Cinderella's Royal Table at Magic Kingdom Park.

    If you're staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, you have the benefit of being able to book dining for the entire length of your vacation, up to 10 days, 180 days in advance of your arrival day. If you're staying off-site, you can still book your dining 180 days in advance, but you'll need to book each day as it opens up. For example, if you're arriving on April 24, 2020, you can book your dining for your arrival day on October 27, and on the next day, you can book dining for the second day, and so on. Of course, dining is flexible and can be booked or modified at any time up to 24 hours before your reservation using the My Disney Experience app, so don't be afraid to change your mind!

    I hope this answers your question, Lindley, and please let us know if there's anything else we can do to help you plan your magical vacation.
