    I want to know that if it says that we can make dining reservations on the website. Then when I go to make the reservation why I cannot select the days of my trip yet. Do I need to call, to make my reservations?

    Be our guest, Zoey, and welcome to planDisney! Is it wrong that planning meals is one of my favorite parts of a Disney vacation? What can I say? I love to eat, and Dining at Disney is part of the magic. Let's look at booking Advanced Dining Reservations for your upcoming trip.

    I'm sorry you've hit a snag in the booking process, so let's brainstorm some ideas to help. When I logged on today, I could make reservations through July 25. You should be able to make reservations for dining on July 25, and if you're staying at a Disney Resort Hotel, you should be able to make reservations for the length of your stay (up to ten days). 

    If you can only make reservations through July 25, my first tip is to ensure you're logged in to the correct account. I recently tried reserving the Starlight Safari tour on my mobile app but couldn't book beyond the 60th day. Once I logged in correctly, I saw availability for the length of my resort stay. 

    You can also try logging out and back in. I typically look for availability online and on my mobile app. Sometimes, one works better than the other. Technology, am I right?! If you still need help, feel free to call (407) WDW-DINE for assistance reserving meals.

    One of my most memorable dining experiences is at Shiki-Sai: Sushi Izakaya at the Japan Pavilion in EPCOT's World Showcase. My family and I are sushi enthusiasts, and we recently booked dinner at 8:30 PM so we could watch Luminous The Symphony of Us from our table by the window. The restaurant plays the soundtrack, and it's truly a magical experience!

    Zoey, I hope you can book some fantastic dining for your trip this summer. Please stop by planDisney anytime. Tie your napkin 'round your neck, cherie!

    Magic awaits,
