    We are staying at two Disney World Resorts in April 2016 and are coming up on the 180 day mark for dining reservations. I wanted to know if I would be able to make all the dining reservation at the 180 mark from the first resort check in day.

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Tara!

    I'm glad to hear you are planning on making advanced dining reservations. This will definitely allow you to have some fantastic culinary experiences during your trip! Just like you, my family will be enjoying a split stay at Walt Disney World Resort in a few weeks where we will stay at two different hotels during our trip. In my experience, 180 days prior to check-in at our first hotel I was able to make reservations for the duration of the stay at that hotel. I had to wait until 180 days prior to the check-in day at my second hotel to make reservations for the second half of our stay. I also found that I did much better to make reservations over the telephone by calling (407) WDW-DINE or (407) 939-3463. The dining Cast Member was able to access the days of my trip that were greater than 180 days in the future, while I sometimes had trouble seeing them online.

    If you haven't tried it before, I highly recommend having breakfast at a restaurant in a theme park before it opens. It is an amazing experience to enter the park early and take a few pictures on your way to breakfast without the crowds of the day. Please let us know if you have any further questions as you continue to plan you trip! T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
