    If I’m staying for a week and I need to book dining reservations, can I book the whole week at once or do I need to book one day at a time as the 60 day mark hits?

    Greetings Emily!
    Thank you for visiting planDisney. We're so excited that you're here. Dining at Walt Disney World is one of my favorite parts about visiting The Most Magical Place on Earth. There are so many amazing restaurant locations to try. It is truly a foodie's dream come true. One of my personal favorite locations is Via Napoli Ristorante e Pizzeria located inside EPCOT. I know pizza may seem like an odd recommendation in a land full of gourmet cuisine, but trust me on this one. It is not to be missed. 

    Your dining reservation date is coming up fast and you ask a great question! Guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel can start making their dining reservations at that 60 day mark and can book an additional ten days out from their check-in date. An example would be if you were booking at the 60 day mark for January 1st, you could continue to book the rest of your dining reservations through January 10th. Anything after that 10 day mark would require waiting until 60 days prior to that date. This is one of the many befits of staying at one of the uniquely themed Disney Resort Collection hotels. Guests visiting Walt Disney World that are staying off-site can still begin making dining reservations at the 60 day mark. Each day would need to be booked separately, 60 days from the reservation date. 

    Advance dining reservations can be made beginning at 6 AM Eastern Time for all guests. I strongly suggest booking right at that window for hard to secure reservations like Cinderella's Royal Table and Chef Mickey's. Popular reservations like these can go fast due to the character experiences and location. Reservations can be made online with My Disney Experience or through the My Disney Experience mobile app. 

    I hope you find this information helpful, Emily. Securing those must have reservations can be a really exciting part of your planning experience. 

    Bon Appetit!
