    I plan on reserving a few enchanting extras on my upcoming vacation. The Disney app says that I will l be able to make those in five more days (my resort date is 5-8-22). Then it says that I can make dining reservations in fourteen days. Is this accurate?

    Hey there, Thomas! Welcome back to planDisney! I'm so happy that you've stopped by with another great vacation planning question. Chatting about Disney is my favorite!

    You are someone after my own heart! Adding Enchanting Extras to every Walt Disney World Resort vacation is my favorite way to add even more magic to each trip and keep every vacation exciting and fresh. The fireworks dessert parties and renting poolside cabanas are always a must-do for my family, and La Cava Experience was one of the best Disney experiences I've ever had. For our upcoming May trip, we have purchased Drawn to Life Presented by Cirque du Soleil & Disney tickets (these can be purchased well before the 60-day mark), and I can't wait for my daughter to experience her first Cirque du Soleil show. With the return of SO many Enchanting Extras, it's hard not to want to book them ALL! But let's chat about how you can book all of your extra magic!

    You can book Enchanting Extras and Advanced Dining Reservations 60 days before your arrival date. If you are staying in a Disney Resort hotel, you can book these reservations for your entire length of stay (up to ten days) 60 days in advance. So, for your May 8th arrival, you can make your reservations for all of these experiences on March 9, 2022. All of your dining reservations can be booked online or on your My Disney Experience app, and while most of the Enchanting Extras can now be booked online, for those that cannot be, call (407) WDW-PLAY or (407) 939-7529. I am not sure why your app is telling you a different reservation date, but I would suggest just double-checking that your Resort reservation is linked properly so that you're all set and ready to book when the booking window opens!

    Thomas, I noticed your interest in the Polar Patios at Disney's Blizzard Beach! Did you know that you can also reserve one of the Beachcomber Shacks at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park?! I recently hung out in one of these private shacks, and it was the perfect way to get some shade, quiet time and relaxation in between all of the fun. There are three different types of Beachcomber Shacks, including Standard, Premium and Premium Plus, and each Shack comes with access to a helpful and magical attendant, comfy cushioned seats, towels, a locker, an adorable refillable "mug," and cold water replenished throughout your stay. This is one extra that will surely bring more pixie dust to your splashin' Disney day!

    Thomas, I hope that this was helpful, and I hope that you have THE most magical upcoming spring vacation! Please stop by any time with any vacation planning questions.

    I hope to see ya real soon,
