    Is it possible to make dinner reservations more than 60 days in advance? We are planning to go to the Be Our Guest restaurant on June 29th for a birthday celebration and are hoping to confirm a reservation slot.

    Bonjour Nathan!

    Thanks for stopping by with your question for us. 

    First and foremost, HAPPY EARLY BIRTHDAY to the Guest celebrating! You have picked the perfect location to celebrate because it doesn't get better than Be Our Guest Restaurant. It's as if your favorite fairytale has come to life as you walk around the stunning ballroom where Beast and Belle danced or wander into the West Wing room where lightning strikes and a rose petal falls; it is truly an enchanting experience! 

    Nathan, as you know, Guests staying at a Disney Resort hotel may make advanced dining reservations for their entire length of stay (for up to a 10-night stay) up to 60 days in advance of their arrival, while Guests staying off-site would be able to make dining reservations at the 60-day mark, one day at a time. So if you're staying at a Disney Resort hotel, you already have an advantage! Yippie! Since this dining reservation is essential to you, I recommend looking for it first. Dining reservations open at 6:00 a.m. EST at the 60-day mark, which you can reserve from your My Disney Experience Mobile App or through your My Disney Experience account. 

    Although you won't be able to make dining reservations sooner than the 60-day mark, I don't want you to give up if you don't see Be Our Guest Restaurant available for June 29th. Instead, keep checking, especially the day before June 29th, as people often change plans. Also, when checking, try choosing different times rather than just selecting the "Lunch" or "Dinner" options available. 

    If you can't snag a reservation, you can use the Mobile Dine Walk-up Availability. This feature allows Guests who are nearby to add their party to a walk-up list at select table-service restaurants using the My Disney Experience Mobile App. I double-checked for you, and Be Our Guest Restaurant offers this option, subject to availability. You can also visit the host stand first thing in the morning and explain your situation to see if there's any availability for the day. Again, this is at the restaurant's discretion and is subject to availability, and although requests are not guaranteed, it doesn't hurt to try. Just a friendly reminder to always be kind, as Cast Members try their best to make magic for Guests when they can. 

    It sounds like the birthday Guest might be a Beauty and the Beast fan. If so, I hope you also visit the Enchanted Rose Lounge at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. This lounge has delectable dishes and shimmering sips and is inspired by the movie! 

    Wishing you all an enchanting celebration, Nathan!
