    Hi it has been over 4 years since our last trip to Disney. We are set to go in July and have the Deluxe Dining plan. I know a lot has changed. We have several dining reservations. How early reservation would you recommend arriving at the restaurant. s

    Hello Melanie!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I we honored to answer you very first question.
    I am so excited to hear that you are returning for another Walt Disney World Resort adventure after four years! Many exciting changes happened at Disney Springs, and now you can experience Pandora – The World of Avatar and Toy Story Land.

    July is my family’s favorite month to visit. We love summer and have so much fun enjoying the water parks, attractions such as Splash Mountain and Kali River Rapids where you can cool off, and the pool at our Disney Resort hotel. A great way to rest during the hottest hours of the day is enjoying a nice meal at one of the several amazing restaurants throughout the Walt Disney World Resort. The Disney Deluxe Dining Plan allows you to select among several participating locations, and starting this year Guests 21 and older are welcome to order alcoholic beverages as part of their plan. 

    Melanie, Disney recommends that Guests plan to arrive at least 5 minutes prior to their reservation time to check-in. In addition, allow up to 1.5 hours to travel to your dining destination if you are using Disney Transportation. Don’t forget that valid theme park admission is required when you book a restaurant located inside one of the theme parks.

    Thank you for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Melanie! I hope this helps you while planning and that you enjoy your Disney Deluxe Dining Plan.

    Best magical wishes,
