    Hi, we will be visiting in September and it's our Wedding anniversary while we are there. How far in advance can dining reservations be made please as we'd like to book somewhere special and don't want to be disappointed. No venue chosen yet

    On behalf of my friends at planDisney, I wish you a happy anniversary! The Walt Disney World Resort is a perfect place to celebrate your “happily ever after!”

    Guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel can make Disney Dining reservations 60-days prior to their vacation arrival date (for up to 10 days of their vacation)! That provides on-property Guests with a bit of an expanded window for making reservations. Guests staying at a resort hotel off-property can make reservations 60-days prior to their preferred reservation date only.

    Sara, the Walt Disney World Resort has so many wonderful dining opportunities! You mentioned that you don’t yet have a restaurant in mind. I’m happy to recommend a favorite for your consideration! California Grill sits atop Disney’s Contemporary Resort. My wife and I celebrated our anniversary at this restaurant! I recommend trying to book a reservation in the evening, around the time of the Magic Kingdom Park fireworks show…Happily Ever After! You can check the daily performance time for Happily Ever After using this link. This restaurant offers a great menu and a wonderful view of the fireworks! It also offers some of the most stunning views of the entire Magic Kingdom Park resort area!

    California Grill is a very popular restaurant! If you are staying on Walt Disney World Resort property, be sure to take advantage of that 60-day reservation window. Remember, you can book reservations for up to 10-days of your vacation beginning on the 60-day mark!

    Happy Planning! And, happy anniversary!
