    It's 180 + 10.

    Meaning, you can start booking 180 days out from the first night of your stay, and then you can book up to 10 days beyond that.

    So, if your arrival date is 11/14/2015 (180 days from today) then you can book from 11/14/2015 through 11/24/2015.

    If your trip is longer than 10 days, you'll need to wait for that window to overlap any day beyond 11/24/2015.

    Hope this helps!

    I keep hearing that if you call on the phone right after midnight at 180 days out, the Disney reservations desk tells you to call back after 7 am. Anyone heard of this happening? Or are you getting in right after midnight. This trip we are going for BOG and CT, which we hear book up in minutes.

    On your 180th day out, you can start booking online at 6a, or if you want to call 407-WDW-DINE, you can call at 7a.

    The Dining Hotline closes the previous night at 11p Eastern, so you can't speak to anyone right after midnight. It's not open. They operate 7 days a week, 7a to 11p.

    I have had some good and some bad experiences with booking on the computer.... sometimes it works, others.. well the computer crashes!! Try the computer first to see if it works before you get on the phone. And you are right, get CT first, it usually get's booked up really fast, so have a couple of alternate dates open in case your first choice is booked.
    1983- First trip, MK & EPCOT
    1986- Second Trip, My grandmother got tickled silly by Pluto because she would not smile while he was giving her hugs. It lasted for 15 minutes! Best part of the trip
    2010- Third trip, my girls first trip. Was so magical
    2012- second trip for kiddos, Christmas time Spectacular. First DCL, over New Years Eve.So unbelievable!
    2015- Going again in October for the MiNSSH. Staying at POR.
    2016- June. Staying at POR

    Like Englanddg said 180 + 10 but if you do deluxe sometimes when you go to book a two piont meal you may have to call this doesn't always happen but it can like anything else have it's glitche... I personally book 180 everything online first thing in the am that I know will book up fast like be our guest and royal table leCellier... But this is just how we have found after so many trips works best for us!
