    When can I book dining?

    Howdy Denise! Welcome back to planDisney!

    If you ask me, food is the most important part of ANY vacation. But, of course, that goes double when talking about a fabulous Walt Disney World Resort vacation! Walt Disney World is FAMOUS for their incredible dining options, with cuisine from all over the globe, so let's get down to business and get you those Advanced Dining Reservations!

    You can make Advanced Dining Reservations 60 days in advance, starting at 6:00 a.m. If you're staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, you get the added benefit of being able to book for your entire stay (for up to 10 days) 60 days before your scheduled check-in. So, you get a jump start on securing some of those hard-to-snag reservations at Walt Disney World's most popular restaurants. How great is that?

    Denise, making your Advanced Dining Reservations is super simple, thanks to the My Disney Experience app. I'll break down the steps below for you to make sure you're familiar with the process before that 60-day mark.

    • Log into your My Disney Experience app starting at 6:00 a.m.
    • Click on the "+" in the middle of the menu bar.
    • Select "Check Dining Availability."
    • Add your party size, and select the date you are looking for.
    • Select what time or meal you are looking to reserve.
    • From there, you will see the list of all available reservations. Select the time and restaurant that works best for you.
    • Then, follow the prompts to complete your reservation, and you are all set!

    Now, if you are staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, I recommend booking the most popular restaurants toward the end of your visit. This way, there will be fewer people who have had the opportunity to book, giving you a better chance of snagging a table. For example, the fantastic character breakfast at Topolino's Terrace – Flavors of the Riviera is one of my absolute must-dos for any Walt Disney World vacation. However, it books up super quickly, so I would start with that one and book it towards the end of your stay.

    Just thinking about all the incredible meals you'll get to enjoy on your upcoming vacation is making me feel a little rumbly in my tumbly, just like Winnie-the-Pooh! I'm just so excited for you to get started on booking those Advanced Dining Reservations! I know whatever you choose, you're in for such a treat!

    Until then, please feel free to stop by again with any other vacation planning questions.

    See you real soon!
