    Hi Bernie,thx for the help! I read on Mousesavers that w/ online res making, I should select "I have dining plan" option even if I don't. Then it'll ask for my room #. What do I do if I am not staying on property? It made it sound like we had

    Hi Danielle!

    Thank you for sending me this question directly.  I really appreciate it.

    You make a reservation online using just your phone number!  I would not select the Disney Dining Plan option box.  Most of my visits to Walt Disney World are short trips (sometimes on the order of a couple of hours) and I don't always stay on property.  Most of my advance dining reservations are made online using just my home phone number.

    If you are still having trouble making a reservation online, I suggest calling Disney Dining directly at (407) WDW-DINE.

    Good luck and please write back if you have any more questions!
