3. Plan in Advance – Rides and Restaurants
To fit the most into your trip, take advantage of the planning windows that Disney builds into your vacation. Guests with resort reservations, can begin making dining reservations 180 days before their arrival. Some dining experiences are extremely popular and fill-up months in advance. We like taking advantage of this opportunity because it gets the entire family involved in the planning process and excited for the trip! After your dining reservations are locked in, guests with advance tickets and resort reservations can begin booking their FastPasses 60 days prior to arrival, so guests can figure out what rides to ride early in the morning or take a spin on late at night!
