    Have a Disney Springs hotel (in MDE) 1st night, then on-site for the rest of our stay. Will the length-of-stay dining reservation window open for our whole visit with the 1st hotel reservation? Or will it only open 60 days ahead of the on-site one?

    Hi Alesia,

    Welcome to planDisney!

    Hooray for booking a split stay at two different resort hotels! In my experience, the dining reservation window is specific to each resort hotel reservation. So, you would be able to make reservations for your first day and then on the following day you could make reservations for your second stay. To be able to make dining reservations for the length of your stay, you need to link your Disney Resorts Collection or other select hotel reservation in My Disney Experience.

    Be aware that even if you log into My Disney Experience on the morning that your 60 day window opens, some dining locations may be unavailable. Availability shifts everyday, so just keep checking. I have been able to make some hard-to-get reservations with persistence. Cancelations do happen!

    If you have not done so already, download the My Disney Experience Mobile App, review the details for Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering, Disney Mobile Dine Check-in, and Disney MagicMobile service. On our most recent visits, we loved using Mobile Dine Check-in and found Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering quite useful. 

    Alesia, make sure you have reminders set on your calendar so that you remember to make those dining reservations. I am always up by 5:45 a.m. ready to go on our dining reservation day! We are so excited for your next Disney visit!

    Magic and memories,
