    Hello! Excited to spend some holiday time in WDW! Given the shorter dining reservation time, COVID restrictions, and holiday business, what is the best way to make dining reservations? Can Geenie help with that? Still trying to figure out Geenie benefits!

    Welcome back to planDisney, Elizabeth!

    Thank you for stopping by once again! We are thrilled to continue to help you plan magical memories for your upcoming visit to the Walt Disney World Resort! 

    I am happy to hear you will be visiting The Most Magical Place on Earth during the most wonderful time of the year! I also love being “home” for the holidays, and I am sure Disney Genie will help make your visit even more magical. 

    I still recommend making dining reservations in advance online or via the My Disney Experience mobile app. Guests can book their favorite restaurants up to 60 days in advance, and Guests staying at a Disney Resort hotel can start making reservations up to 60 days in advance plus the length of their stay (up to 10 days). If you cannot find availability, I recommend that you keep trying until the date of your visit. Sometimes Guests end up making last-minute cancellations, so keep checking the My Disney Experience app! In addition, you can try adding your party to the walk-up list at select table-service restaurants during your visit, and you are also welcome to explore Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering.

    Disney Genie can help you find dining opportunities and make reservations while visiting the theme parks. While using the app on your mobile device, tap My Day under Today’s Plans, visit your Tip Board, and select Dining. Disney Genie will give you available dining options to add your party to a walk-up list, make a dining reservation, or place a mobile order! 

    I hope this information is helpful, Elizabeth! Come back to visit us if you have additional questions and have a magical visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!
