    Karyn from IL Asked

    Hi - we’re traveling to Disney in December. Can we make reservations at restaurants in our hotel and in the theme parks? If so, how should we start that process? Thanks.

    Hi there, Karyn! Welcome to planDisney, and thank you for coming to us with your question. I am so happy to chat with you about your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation. It is a great idea to get a head start on your plans, especially because there are some changes in and around Walt Disney World that you should become familiar with to make it the smoothest trip possible! 

    While things may look and feel just a little bit different when you visit, you can certainly still choose from and enjoy many dining options! The Experience Updates dining pages include lists of all available dining options, and many still take reservations as before. The booking window for Dining Reservations is now 60 days before the start of your vacation. Additional dining experiences may become available as your dates draw nearer, so keep an eye out if your preferred locations aren’t yet available. 

    Karyn, dining experiences aren’t the only things that have changed somewhat since the Disney Parks' phased reopening. To safeguard Guests' and Cast Members' health and well-being, many new rules and precautions are being implemented each day. I recommend that you familiarize yourself with these policies and return to see us if you have any questions! As always, the Disney Parks Blog is another incredible resource and way to stay atop any developments! 

    Thanks again for visiting us, and I hope to see you back here soon!
