    Hi there We are traveling to Florida in July/Aug. We are not staying in a Disney hotel, so do not have Disney dining. Can I still reserve a table for lunch/dinner? If so how far in advance can I book it? Many thanks Gayle

    Hey Gayle!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Thank you for stopping by with your question about advance dining reservations at Walt Disney World Resort. Congratulations on your upcoming vacation!

    Whether or not you are staying in a Disney Resort hotel, you can make advance dining reservations for Walt Disney World Resort restaurants! Additionally, you do not need to have a Disney Dining Plan to make advance dining reservations.

    Gayle, all Walt Disney World Resort Guests can begin making advance dining reservations 180 days in advance of their arrivals. If you are staying off-site you can make reservations one day at a time. If you re a Disney Resort hotel Guest, you can make advance dining reservations 180 days in advance of your vacation — for up to 10 days at a time!

    You can make dining reservations online or by calling (407) 939-3463. Online reservation availability begins each day at approximately 5:45 a.m. ET. The Disney Reservation Center is available by phone beginning at 7:00 a.m. ET.

    Gayle, if you have any other questions, you are welcome to return to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. We are always here to help you plan the “practically perfect” Walt Disney World Resort vacation.
