    Hi planing to go back WDW on feb 2023, if we dont stay at Disney Hotels can we still use the dinning app to order quick meals or book table seat restaurants? If so, when will be my booking window since we only will have tickets not hotel reservations. Thnk

    Hey there, hi there, ho there, Lina! Welcome to planDisney!

    I'm so happy to hear that you're planning on returning to the Walt Disney World Resort before the clock strikes midnight on the 50th Anniversary celebration. The EARidescent festivities have been a blast so far, so definitely take advantage of it all before everything goes away in April 2023! Make sure to partake in the Fab 50 Golden Character Statue hunt, leave your favorite vacation photo on the Cinderella Castle Mural of Memories, and enjoy every single second. You're going to have the best time ever!

    Lina, I'm delighted to let you know that you can absolutely use the My Disney Experience mobile app for all your vacation needs even if you won't be staying at one of the Disney Resorts Collection hotels. You will still be able to book your Table Service dining reservations, make mobile orders at select Quick Service locations, use the Disney Genie Service, and download your vacation pictures through the mobile app. In fact, your Table Service booking window will be exactly the same as it is for Disney Resorts Collection hotel Guests!

    You will be able to start booking these exactly 60 days before your vacation at 6 a.m. EST. The only catch is that you'll have to log in one day at a time instead of booking reservations for the entire length of your stay 60 days out like Guests who are staying at a Disney Resort. For example, if you're planning on arriving on February 16th, you will be able to make reservations for that day on December 18th. Then, you'll need to log in again on December 19th in order to make reservations for February 17th, and so on!

    I hope that your vacation to the Walt Disney World Resort is as magical as you intend it to be, Lina. Please don't hesitate to reach back out to us if you have any other questions in English or in Spanish! We love chatting with our friends about the Most Magical Place on Earth.

    Have a magical day,

    Ana Paula
