    Our trip isn’t until May, but I have been just looking ahead and seeing what restaurants are available and just playing with the app. We are staying on-site, but I’m only getting options exactly 180 days out. Shouldn’t I be seeing 190 days?

    Hi Paula,

    We love it when Disney friends come back to see us multiple times, so thank you so much for bringing us another great question!

    I'm thrilled to hear that you'll be staying right in the middle of the magic at a Disney Resort hotel for your vacation next spring! You'll enjoy lots of wonderful perks, one of them being that you'll be able to make your dining reservations for the entire length of your stay (up to 10 days) 180 days in advance. You're exactly right, though, that the official calendar only shows park hours and Extra Magic Hours 180 days in advance, which can be a bit tricky if you're not sure where you'll be each day. Hakuna Matata...no worries, as I have a suggestion for you. Touringplans.com shows park hours 190 days in advance on their site and predicts hours based on historical data even further out than that. While I can't guarantee their accuracy until Disney releases the official park hours, it's definitely a great place to start. I'd suggest making all of your dining reservations based on the hours they have posted, then checking the official calendar as hours are released and making any changes to your dining reservations if necessary. Don't forget that park hours are always subject to change, so it's not a bad idea to check the calendar from time to time anyway. I'm sending some pixie dust that you find the perfect dining reservations for your trip!

    We're always here and happy to help, Paula, so please feel free to stop by the Disney Parks Moms Panel again with any other questions as you're planning your visit. I hope that you have a truly magical...and delicious...vacation!
