    We are arriving on the 10th November '22 and staying at the Hilton Orlando Lake Buena Vista for 12 nights, please can you tell me if the 60+10 day dining reservation rule will apply to our booking at the 'Official Disney Hotel'?

    Welcome to planDisney, Katie!  We are glad you stopped by with your question.

    Dining reservations for Walt Disney World Resort restaurants can be made up to 60 days in advance.  Since you'll be checking in on the 10th of November, you can begin making your dining reservations on September 11.  You'll be happy to know that Disney Springs Area hotels, including the Hilton Orlando Lake Buena Vista, participate in the 60 + 10 reservation rule offered to Guests staying at Disney Resort Hotels.  This means that 60 days in advance of your check-in date, you'll be able to make dining reservations for the length of your stay, up to 10 days.  Be sure your hotel reservation or vacation package has been linked to your My Disney Experience account to take advantage of this benefit.  Guests not staying at participating hotels may make dining reservations 60 days before each day of their trip.

    Officially, dining reservations can be made online beginning at 5:45 am Eastern Time.  I just made dining reservations for my November trip this morning, and while I could view all the dates of my trip on the calendar for my selected dining locations at 5:45 am, I was not able to search for available tables until after 6:00 am.  If you see an error message stating the system is unavailable to search for available tables at this time, try again a few minutes later.

    I have a reservation tip for you: some of the most popular dining locations fill up quickly, and you may find limited availability 60 days in advance.  Try booking your top priority dining locations toward the end of your 10-day window.  Fewer Guests will have had access to those dates, and you may find better availability.

    Katie, I'm wishing you luck in getting all the reservations you're looking for!  If you have any additional questions, please stop by and see us here at planDisney again anytime.  We are always happy to help.
