You've picked some delicious options for your August vacation -- and a few of the most popular.
I prefer booking my advanced dining reservations online
because I can rethink my plans if the time or restaurant I've targeted are not available. Dining is my favorite Disney activity.
I believe the cast member is correct that you can book online at midnight 180 days out from your trip.
Of the restaurants you mention, Chef Mickey's, Ohana and Akershus are the ones I would expect to book up first. Crystal Palace also is very popular, but I've found a bit more flexibility there. The others typically require a reservation, but tend not to fill up on the first few days of open reservations.
Good luck and happy dining! Please let us know if the Moms Panel can answer any other planning questions between now and your visit.
