    Hey there, David! Welcome to planDisney! I'm so glad that you've stopped by with this very important vacation planning question. Food is one of the most important pieces of a Disney vacation planning puzzle, so let's get to it!

    Since your 60-day mark is quickly approaching, I know you must be getting so excited as you finalize your dining experiences and Enchanting Extras Collection must-do list. The endless list of fabulous dining experiences adds so much magic to a Disney vacation, so let's make sure you're ready to make your Advanced Dining Reservations as soon as possible!

    Your booking window to make your dining reservations opens 60 days before your check-in date. So, if you are checking in on November 12, 2022, you can make your dining reservations as early as September 13, 2022. You can begin making your reservations on the My Disney Experience website or app as early as 5:45 a.m. EST. Happy booking and bon appetit!

    Currently, my favorite restaurant is Steakhouse 71 at Disney's Contemporary Resort, and the lunch menu is the absolute best! I suggest booking a lunch reservation here on your Magic Kingdom Park day and taking the short stroll or monorail ride over to Steakhouse 71 for incredible food and drinks. I recommend the Stack Burger! It is seriously the best burger I have ever had! YUM!

    I hope this was helpful, David, and I hope you snag all of your must-do dining reservations! I'm wishing you a vacation full of magical memories and delicious dining! Please stop by any time with any planning questions you may have along the way. You've got a friend in me!

    See ya real soon,
