    We are staying off the Disney property at another hotel. Are we still able to make dining and attraction reservations without staying at a Disney World Resort hotel?

    Hi Brittany!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Thank you for sending us another one of your excellent questions.

    Brittany, you can most certainly make advance dining reservations and FastPass+ selections — even if you are not staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel!

    All Guests, regardless of where they stay, can make advance dining reservations up to 180 days in advance of their vacations. You can make dining reservations online or by dialing (407) 939-3463 and speaking to a friendly Cast Member. For your reference, online reservation availability for select Walt Disney World restaurants begins each day at approximately 5:45 AM. The Disney Reservation Center is available by phone from 7:00 AM-11:00 PM Monday-Friday, and 7:00 AM-8:00 PM on weekends.

    You will be able to start making FastPass+ selections 30 days in advance of your vacation. In order to start making FastPass+ selections, you must link a valid Walt Disney World Resort theme park ticket to your My Disney Experience account. Without a ticket linked to your account, you will not be able to start making selections.

    Don’t forget! If you are making FastPass+ selections or dining reservations with anyone else, please be sure to add them to your Family & Friends list in advance of making your selections!

    Brittany, I hope you will visit the Disney Parks Moms Panel again. We are all EARS!
