    I am being denied access to making dining reservations on April 12th 2021. I'm very frustrated because I have linked my tickets and I should be able to do this. It's my birthday and five year anniversary and it's about to be ruined

    Hello Chelsea,

    Welcome to planDisney, we're so glad you stopped by with such a great question about celebrating both your birthday and 5 yEar anniversary at Walt Disney World Resort!  I can't think of a better place to spend 2 such milestone occasions than at the most magical place on earth.

    I'm so sad to hEar you couldn't gain access via your My Disney Experience account to make those all important celebratory Advanced Dining Reservations for April 12th 2021.  I think I might just have a clue as to why you experienced difficulties... At present all Guests are welcome to begin making Advanced Dining Reservations at select Disney Restaurants up to 60 days in advance.  Or for Guests who are staying in a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, it's 60 days ahead of time, plus for up to an additional 10 days into their stay.  So, I'm wondering if perhaps you could maybe have been a day or so early in trying to make your Advanced Dining Reservations.  

    Chelsea, on your behalf I've just searched online for Advanced Dining Reservations for dinner on April 12th 2021, and I'm so pleased to share that (as I type) I could indeed see lots of choices of both restaurant and times available!  At this point, my best suggestion for you would be to retry making dining selections for 12th April.  However, if you should encounter any further difficulties, then I highly recommend speaking directly with a helpful Cast Member by dialing the number for Dining Reservations contained within this handy Walt Disney World Resort Phone Directory.

    A recent magical time-saving addition to the My Disney Experience Mobile App is Mobile Dine Check-In.  I thought you'd find this particularly useful during your upcoming visit as it could provide additional precious time spent with loved ones to enjoy both your birthday and anniversary celebrations!  Plus, you might want to take a peek at the Enchanting Extras Collection where there are some bibbidi-bobbidi-beautiful ideas of ways to create some extra magical moments.

    I feel quite sure that your upcoming April vacation to Walt Disney World Resort will be filled with a lifetime's worth of pixie dusted memories made together with your dear family.  

    Have a great Disney day ~ Jane
