    How far in advance can you purchase tickets and make dining reservations?

    Hey, Lindsay!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I am so excited that you are researching a magical vacation to Walt Disney World Resort!

    Dining reservation may be made 180 days advance. Provided there is availability at your desired time, you may reserve a table for your party either online or by contacting a Cast Member at 407-WDW-DINE (407-939-3463). Some dining experiences such as Chef Mickey's and Be Our Guest Restaurant book very quickly so don't hesitate to book a reservation. Online reservations open at 6:00 a.m. EST while phone in reservations begin at 7:00 a.m. EST.

    You may purchase theme park tickets at anytime. The ticket expires 14 days after initial use. For example, if you buy a 3-Day ticket, you will have 14 days to use those 3 days. They do not have to be consecutive days. After Day 14 any remaining theme park admissions will not be accepted. For more information about tickets including special event tickets please contact a Cast Member at 407-939-7679.

    Disney Dad Tip: Download the My Disney Experience mobile app on your smartphone. It's the BEST way to plan and keep your Walt Disney World vacation organized. You can purchase tickets, create an itinerary, view GPS enabled theme park maps, make dining reservations, see park hours and show times and even plan your FastPass+ reservations.

    Lindsay, enjoy making many Magical Memories!
