    how soon before our trip to Disneyland can we book dinner reservations? We our staying in the park, if that makes a difference..

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Nicole!

    Eating at the Disneyland Resort is one of my absolute favorite things to do! Dining reservations can be made up to 60 days in advance online or by calling (714) 781-3463. This time frame is the same whether you are staying at a Disneyland Resort Hotel or off-site. I tend to make my reservations as soon as I am able so I can easily secure my desired meal times. Plus, some of my favorite restaurants are quite popular so early planning is key. You will notice, though, that some restaurants at the Disneyland Resort will have availability all the way up to the day you are in the parks. So, if you are in search of a sit-down meal on one of your park days, but don't have a reservation, check the Disneyland app for available times and you may just be surprised!

    Since you will be staying at a Disneyland Resort Hotel, definitely check out the dining options located inside your hotel. All three hotels offer character dining and there are even fine dining options in the Disneyland Hotel and Disney's Grand Californian Hotel and Spa. I like to book a character breakfast on my last day before leaving for my flight so we can have one final taste of Disney (pun intended!) before heading home.

    If you have any other dining questions or would like some tips on amazingly delicious quick service options, please visit the Disney Parks Moms Panel again with more questions. Have a magical day!
