    Staying at Yacht Club in 2015 with Dining Plan. If we don't reserve all meals at 180 day window then cannot get the remainder at a later date, how do we use our DP. Can we have quick service counter meals in place of service meals? Thank you Moms!

    Hi James!

        Yes, it can seem like a daunting task to try to make all of your Advanced Dining Reservations 6 months ahead of your Walt Disney World vacation. I would definitely recommend making Advanced Dining Reservations at popular Walt Disney World Table Service Restaurant at 180 days from your Walt Disney World vacation.  You can make an Advanced Dining Reservation by calling 407-WDW-DINE (1-407-939-3463) or you can make them online through My Disney Experience on the web or on your mobile smart phone. I still think it is worth it to purchase a Disney Dining Plan even if some of your dining choices may be filled when you try to book them.  I would encourage you to look into the wonderful Table Service Restaurants located within the Walt Disney World Resorts (not in the 4 theme parks) because often it is easier to get an Advanced Dining Reservation at a Table Service Restaurant located within a Walt Disney World Resort and they do not fill up quite as quickly. 

          Also I would keep checking online everyday to see if any Advanced Dining Reservations become available from now until your Walt Disney World vacation because Guests cancel their Advanced Dining Reservations from time to time which creates an opportunity for another Guest to fill in their spot.

    I hope that your next Walt Disney World vacation is truly amazing in every way!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
