    Hi I am 60 days from arriving at my WDW hotel and holiday but I can only see one day (the first day of holidays) where I can make a reservation, not the 10 days agreed when booking the holiday. Please can you tell me why I can't book for the full 10 da

    Welcome to planDisney, E, and thanks for stopping by with this great question. Your springtime Walt Disney World Resort visit is sure to be magical, so let's look at booking some marvelous dining experiences for you and your party.

    You are correct that your window to book dining should open at the 60-day mark, and you should be able to make reservations for up to ten days of your stay at a Disney Resort Hotel. I suspect you might be a day early, so that's why you don't see the calendar opening up. Or perhaps you tried too early in the day. Things like time zones and Daylight Savings Time in the States can throw off my calculations, too! 

    If you feel you're within the booking window but still need help, I suggest you call Dining Reservations. They can solve almost any issue with a spoonful of sugar! Another tip is to try booking dining on the mobile app and online. I sometimes have better luck booking activities on my computer. 

    I hope you enjoy the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival during your trip. The Outdoor Kitchens typically offer yummy bites from around the world. Last year's Garden Graze was totally plant-based and totally delicious! 

    E, I hope you make some magical memories on your upcoming visit. I hope you have a safe trip, and stop by planDisney anytime. If you ask for my pals, Louise or Sue, they are experts at planning vacations from across the pond!

    Magic awaits,
