    Hello about when I can make dining reservations. I know it’s 60 before our trip but how early that day can I go online and book? do happen to know the number to contact the bus that picks you up at the airport and drops you off at resort? 😀

    Hi there, Rebecca! 

    Welcome to planDisney! I am so excited to hear that you are planning to visit the Walt Disney World Resort this fall. You will still be able to enjoy the 50th Anniversary Celebration still going strong. Take the time to enjoy Disney’s Fab 50 Character Collection, in all 4 theme parks. You will discover 50 golden statues that pay tribute to the most loved Disney Characters. Can you find them all?

    You know your trip is coming close when you can begin to make your Advanced Dining Reservations. Guests can make their reservations 60 days in advance of their arrival. Any Guest staying at a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel can make their reservations for the entire length of their stay on the first day their reservation window opens. 

    You can make your reservations online at 6:00 AM Eastern Time or as we call it in my house, Mickey Time. I recommend that you sign in to your My Disney Experience account online or in the app around 5:45 AM that morning to make sure that you are ready to go. Be sure to count everyone in your party, even if you are traveling with children under 3, who will eat free. There needs to be an accurate count of everyone in your party to make sure enough space is reserved for everyone. 

    On January 1st, 2022, Disney’s Magical Express service was permanently retired in transporting Guests from Orlando International Airport to their Disney Resorts Collection Hotels. There are many options that you can choose to travel to your resort, but when it comes to shuttles, you can try either Mears Connect using the Mears mobile app or by calling (407) 422-2222 for rates and booking information. The Sunshine Flyer is a new shuttle service in the Orlando area to the Walt Disney World Resorts. You can check their website for booking and rate information. 

    Good luck making your dining reservations and if you have any more questions before you arrive, please come back and visit us again. 

    See ya real soon,
