    Currently, for hotel guests, what time does reservations open for a disney experience and dinning?

    Hi there, Wilmary, and welcome to planDisney! Thank you so much for stopping by with this great question. We are passionate about helping you feel prepared so that you can have a wonderful vacation at the Most Magical Place On Earth!

    Your Walt Disney World Resort vacation is coming up in just a few short weeks, how exciting! You'll notice that Theme Park Hours will be available to view on the calendar about 60 to 75 days in advance, and while these are subject to change, this is a great place to start when making your daily vacation plans. Theme Park Hours definitely play into which theme park I decide to visit, because, while they all offer Early Entry for Disney Resort hotel guests, select parks will often offer Extended Evening Hours for guests of Disney Deluxe Resorts and Disney Deluxe Villa Resorts. 

    Once you've decided where you want to be each day, like a Theme Park, your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, or even Disney Springs, you can start to think about the experiences and dining you'd like to book in advance. Your booking window will open at 6:00am EST, 60 days before your arrival date. Since you're a Disney Resort hotel guest, you'll be able to make Advance Dining Reservations for Table-Service Restaurants and reservations for Enchanting Extras for up to 10 days of your stay at that time.

    Wilmary, when I'm planning my next Disney vacation, I have a few strategies to help me secure the reservations that I want, as quickly as possible. It all starts with an early alarm and coffee! I go ahead and log in to My Disney Experience on my computer as well as the My Disney Experience Mobile App before 6:00am EST. I open a tab on my computer for each reservation I want to book, in order of how highly I prioritize that experience. That way, I don't spend precious minutes searching and scrolling through available reservations that I don't need. In the event that the website or mobile app doesn't work properly, or I am unable to book a reservation that I want, I never hesitate to reach out to a friendly Cast Member. Since I typically book dining reservations for a large party, I do all of this in tandem with another member of my party, so that we can be sure that everyone in our group has a seat at the table. 

    If you'd like any recommendations on where to find the best snacks, meals, and drinks during your Disney vacation, I'm your girl! Please stop back by planDisney with any additional vacation planning questions you have before, and even during, your visit.

    See you real soon!
