10 Do’s and Don’ts for Planning Your Disney Vacation

7 - Do Book Dining Reservations

Walt Disney World is home to some of the most amazing dining locations ranging from quick service to full service. Guests who plan on enjoying a meal at a full service restaurant definitely need to make an Advanced Dining Reservation (ADR) as far in advance as possible. Disney has spectacular restaurants, ranging in family friendly character dining experiences, to VIP and fine dining table service restaurants. Guests can make dining reservations 180 days in advance and we highly recommend you do so. The reservation window for dining opens up at 6:00 am. For the very popular restaurants, you'll need to be online or on the phone right at 6:00 am the day your window opens. This will increase your chances of booking the restaurant you want, at the time you want. Advanced Dining Reservations absolutely necessary for popular locations like Le Cellier Steakhouse, ‘Ohana, California Grill, and Be Our Guest Restaurant.
