    I’m staying at the Dolphin hotel 7/24/23 then moving to Old Key West from 7/25-27. When can I make dining reservations, and will it be for the duration of the split stay or will I have 2 dates? Thanks!

    Hey, howdy, hey Aimee and welcome back to planDisney. It is with deepest pride and greatest pleasure to help you plan for your July adventure to the place "where dreams come true." I love split stays at Walt Disney World Resort as it gives me more time to explore the Resort hotel theming and be transported to yet another place during my visit.

    Your two reservations will have two different 60-day windows from which you may book advance dining reservations. You will be able to book dining related to your Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel stay for both July 24 and July 25, 2023, while Disney's Old Key West Resort will allow you to book advance dining reservations from July 25 through July 27, 2023. Even though you are splitting the stay with back-to-back hotel reservations, each carries its own 60-day in-advance window. If you do not get the reservations you want at the 60-day mark, keep checking. Guests drop reservations constantly and having the My Disney Experience app handy to check availability makes it easy.

    planDisney Pro Tip: Your 60-day window allows you to book advance dining reservations for your entire length of stay (up to 10 days). I recommend working backward when trying to secure reservations. This method assures that you are competing with the fewest number of other Guests for the reservation.

    I hope this information helps you plan a wonderful July jaunt to see Mickey and the rest of the Fab Five. Please reach out to me directly with any further questions.

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories.
