    I have about 20 days before I can make dining reservations. We are going on June 13 for one week. Can I make reservations for every day or do I have to make individual reservations day by day

    Hiya, Raul!

    Welcome to planDisney.  When it comes to planning a Walt Disney World vacation, my favorite part of the process is probably making advance dining reservations.  Not only does it help me to finalize all my other plans once dining reservations are in place, but it means that I'm only 60 days (or less) from arriving!  How exciting that your dining reservation window opens up in just a few weeks!

    As you may already know, you can begin making Walt Disney World advance dining reservations 60 days in advance.  If you're staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel during your visit, you'll be able to begin booking those reservations 60-days before your check-in date for your entire length of stay (up to 10 days).  If your visit doesn't include a Disney Resort stay, you'll need to make your reservations day-by-day, as your dining date for each one crosses the 60-day mark.  And whether you're booking tables individually or all at once, reservations typically become available around 5:45 AM EST on the day your dining window opens.

    If you've never experienced it before, booking Walt Disney World dining reservations can feel like a competitive sport –– they go quickly, especially during the busiest seasons of the year.  That's why I recommend taking a look ahead of time to make your picks and have backup times or restaurants in mind, just in case your first choice is unavailable.  If you're able to book for your entire stay as a Resort Guest, I also suggest booking popular restaurants and your must-do's first, at the end of your vacation, and working backward from there.  Because those dates further out aren't available to everyone yet, you're likely to find more availability.  

    Also, if you can't book all the reservations you're hoping for right at the 60-day mark, don't panic –– Walt Disney World dining availability changes all the time.  Keep checking back and there's a great chance that the reservation you're looking for will pop up before you arrive.  Lately, I've even had great luck finding last-minute reservations for popular new spots, like EPCOT's Space 220 Restaurant.  Because reservations have to be canceled 24 hours ahead to avoid a fee, it's not unusual to find a table 72-24 hours in advance –– even if you've been searching for weeks with no luck!

    I'm so glad you stopped by planDisney, Raul.  No matter where you sit down to dine, I hope your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort visit is filled with delicious dishes from start to finish!
