    For advanced dining reservations, I know we can book up to 60 days in advance plus the length of our stay. is length of stay based on days or nights? If we are staying 4 days/3 nights, do we get to book 64 or 63 days in advance?

    Welcome to planDisney, Michelle and thanks for stopping by with your question.

    Michelle, dining around the Walt Disney World Resort is one of my favorite topics of discussion and I'm always happy to help guests navigate the road to delicious cuisine!

    When planning a trip to the Most Magical Place on Earth, my family and I tend to reserve one Table-Service meal per day. I find that it's a great time to relax and recharge while eating. As a Disney Resorts Collection hotel guest, you have the opportunity to make all of your reservations at one time instead of logging in to your My Disney Experience account each day (as day guests and those NOT staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel would need to do). So, to clarify, your window begins exactly 60 days before your check-in date. You will not be able to make reservations prior to that 60-day mark. However, you then can make reservations for each day of your vacation, including check-out day.

    Michelle, it might also be helpful to know that when you're making your advanced dining reservations, they do not need to be reserved in order. For example, if you are hoping to dine at a popular venue (such as Chef Mickey's at Disney's Contemporary Resort) near the end of your trip, you're welcome to search and secure that reservation prior to others. 

    Michelle, I hope this information is helpful as you're looking ahead to your next meal at the Walt Disney World Resort. If you have any other questions (or would like recommendations), please don't hesitate to come back to planDisney where we love talking about dining as much as Chef Remy loves cooking!
