    I will be arriving in Walt Disney World on October 1, but over eight nights I will be staying at three different hotels. Can I make reservations for my whole trip 60 days from the first check in, or will I have to wait for some days.

    Hi there, Katharine! Welcome to planDisney!

    It sounds like you have quite the magical vacation planned this fall! October is not only my favorite month of the year, but my favorite time to visit the Walt Disney World Resort. Pumpkins and gourds welcome you down Main Street U.S.A., frightfully delicious treats are around every corner and the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival is in full swing! If you're feeling extra ghoulish, you'll check out Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. Making its much-anticipated return this fall, this party is the ultimate way to experience Halloween at Walt Disney World!

    A split-stay, or staying at multiple Disney Resort Hotels over the course of your stay, is a fantastic way to see all that these magical accommodations have to offer. One day, you're bouncing around the coast of Atlantic City at Disney's Boardwalk Inn and the next, you're searching far and wide for animals on the savannah at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge.

    While there are many advantages to a split-stay, advance dining reservations do get a little tricky. Unfortunately, you will need to log in 60-days in advance of each Disney Resort Hotel reservation. So, if you're staying eight days with three different resort hotel reservations, you'll have to have your My Disney Experience App ready three separate times in order to make reservations for the duration of your trip.

    Katharine, though this does require a few extra early morning wake-ups to reserve your favorite restaurants, it does give you time to reset and game plan for each leg of your stay. Hakuna Matata, right?

    I hope this is your most magical trip yet! 

    See ya real soon,
