    I was reading the Birnbaum guide and it said something about making dining reservations for "up to ten days" of your stay. So, if I'm staying for 14, and I out of luck for the extra four?? I am on the dining plan, and will be there for two weeks

    Hi Jessica,

    I still love reading Birnbaum's Walt Disney World planning book, it has so many great tips and information inside.

    One of the many advantages to staying at a Disney World resort is the ability to book your dining reservations before other guests. Disney resort guests can make their dining reservations 180 days in advance and can book up to ten days of reservations all on that first day. This is a huge plus as you can get a jump on the most popular restaurants before non-Disney resort guests, and you do not need to call in every morning to try and get your "must-have's".

    You are a lucky girl being able to enjoy two weeks at my favorite place. You are not "out of luck" for those four extra days, but will need to make an extra call or two. For the additional days, you can either wait four days and call again and again reservations for the end of your stay. The other choice would be to call each morning, of the next four days, and add each additional day of reservations at that time.

    Good luck! I hope you are able to get everything you want!
