    Hi going to Disney for first time 8th August and have DDP. Think this means I can book restaurants from Thursday 8th Feb but will they just become available on app as at moment only one date at a time is showing? Thank you

    Hi, Sally! I am so sorry for the delay in us getting to your question. I hope by now that the Advance Dining Reservation booking window has opened for you to include all of your travel dates. What you initially saw when you wrote in is exactly what normally happens. At any given time, a guest can pull up all dates within the next 180 days. However, this changes if the guest has a confirmed reservation at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel linked to their My Disney Experience account.When the day comes that is 180 days away from their date of check-in, the booking calendar automagically opens to include the length of their vacation, up to ten days. That is a huge benefit to those staying at Resort hotels, as some dining locations do fill their available spots quickly.

    Sally, I double checked your dates and, given an 8th of August check-in date, then the 9th of February is 180 days in advance. I hope on that date you found a wonderfully long booking window! If you still are having difficulty, please check to ensure your Resort hotel reservation is appropriately linked to your My Disney Experience. If everything is in order, please contact Guest Services to see if they can spread some pixie dust.

    Wishing you a magical day! Please let us know if we can assist you further as you continue to plan your holiday!
