    For Disney World Dolphin Reserve hotel guests. Can we book dining reservations for our entire stay 60 days from the day of check in? Can we use the early theme park entry the day we check in? Can we use the extended evening hours the day we check out?

    Ma chère Mademoiselle, it is with deepest pride and greatest pleasure that we welcome you to planDisney. Thanks for choosing to be our Guest, Eve. 

    A stay at Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel sounds truly magical. You're going to fall in love with that 3-acre pool! And don't even get me started on Shula's Steak House! Now I'm all rumbly in my tumbly. One of my favorite things to do at Walt Disney World is experience some of the fantastic restaurants. As a Guest staying in Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel, you'll be glad to know that you have the benefit of making dining reservations up to 60 days in advance plus the length of your stay (up to 10 days). "If you're stressed, it's fine dining we suggest!" 

    If you want the best chance of getting a table at the restaurants you set your heart on, here's what I suggest you do: Decide beforehand what restaurants you'd like to eat at and when. You might even want to have some backup options, just in case. 60 days before your trip, set your alarm to go off nice and early. Make sure that your credit card information is accurate and up-to-date on your My Disney Experience account. Then at 6:00 a.m. (EST) start booking your restaurants. Book the final day of your trip first and then work backward. This will give you a greater chance of making reservations at some of the more popular restaurants.

    Guests staying at Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel also get the benefit of enjoying more time in the Parks. This includes Early Theme Park Entry, which enables you to get a 30-minute jump on your Disney day. This is available every day at all four Theme Parks. But that's not all! You'll also be able to enjoy Extended Evening Theme Park Hours in select Theme Parks on select nights. This is my very favorite time in the parks due to the romantic ambiance and shorter wait times. And here's the good news: you'll be able to enjoy these magical perks both on the day you check in and on the day you check out.

    So it looks like you're all set for a truly enchanting time, Eve! If you're looking for a way to add some extra pixie dust to your trip, my friends and I recently watched Drawn to Life Presented by Cirque du Soleil & Disney. I don't think I've ever clapped in appreciation so much during a show! By the end, my hands were sore, but my heart was happy! I can't recommend it highly enough.

    See ya real soon!
