For all of you that are planners here is some news that you will be interested in:
Disney World has changed the Window of time that you are allowed to make reservations for Dining at the Disney World Resort Restaurants. Instead of the 180 day window that we have been used to, it has now been changed to 90 days.
This is a big change for those of us that have diligently planned ahead. Expect the phones to be busier, and the competition to be fierce at the 90 day window for some of the harder to get restaurants. The official window now is 90 days prior to your vacation stay at the Walt Disney World Resort. This means that if you are staying on property, you can make reservations for your entire stay at 90 days from your arrival.
If you have already made reservations for a trip under the old system, don't worry, they are still good. The change only impacts new dining reservations.
As always, plan ahead and make sure that you mark your calendars for the 90 day mark in order to make your dining reservations.
