    Hi, We are visiting end of March. We have started to plan and have been looking at dining options. When we go to to check availability only a certain number of options are listed. Will there be more when we are able to choose the date of our park visit?

    Hey there, hi there, Andrew! You're as welcome as can be here at planDisney! I'm so glad you've stopped by with such a great holiday planning question. I love chatting Disney with my pals, pal!

    In just a couple of months, you'll be arriving at The Most Magical Place on Earth, ready to begin your most magical adventure. Eeeeek! How exciting! Of course, one of the most important parts of a Walt Disney World Resort holiday (or any holiday, for that matter) is the food, so let's chat about my favorite topic: Disney dining.

    Only seeing a few dining options available? Hakuna Matata! It means, "no worries!" Your Advance Dining Reservation window opens 60 days before your arrival, and I think you will find that once your reservation window opens up, your dining options will magically open up, as well. If I have your arrival date correct, you can begin making your dining reservations in a few days, on January 28th. When it's time, log in to your My Disney Experience account to begin booking your must-do dining experiences. If you have a specific restaurant in mind, you can head to the restaurant's webpage and search for availability there, as well. 

    If you are staying at a Disney Resort Hotel, you will be able to make your dining reservations for your entire length of stay, up to ten days, once your reservation window opens. I recommend starting your pixie-dusted search around 5:45 to 6:00 a.m. EST (11:45 a.m. to noon GMT). Happy booking, Andrew!

    I hope this was helpful, Andrew, and I hope you have an unforgettable holiday, full of fun, magic and fantastic food! Please feel free to stop by any time with any questions you may have. You've got a friend in me!

    Bon appetit,
