    Hi, we have recently added a 3 day stay at the Coronado Springs Resort before our 5 day stay at the Animal Kingdom Lodge. Will we be able to make advanced dining reservations for our entire 8 day stay at the 60 day from check-in at the Coronado Springs?

    Hello and welcome to planDisney, Christina. It sounds like you have such a fun trip planned to the Most Magical Place On Earth this spring. It'll be here before you know it. I bet you are getting so excited! 

    Christina both of the Walt Disney World Resort Hotels that you have chosen to stay at are incredible. You are going to have such an amazing time. I just stayed at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge a little over a month ago and it was 10 out of 10! Because a split stay is two separate resort reservations, you'll also need to split up your advance dining reservations. You'll be able to make them 60 days prior to your check-in day for the length of your stay at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort and then again 60 days prior to checking in to Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. 

    You can make advanced dining reservations starting at 6:00 a.m. online via your MyDisneyExperience account or over the phone starting at 7:00 a.m. by calling 407-WDW-DINE. I do suggest setting that alarm clock from bright and early because some of the best spots do tend to fill up quickly. The good news about your stay is that you have 2 chances to secure some of your must-try spots which I think will come in handy if you have some of the more popular places picked out. I like to have my planning notebook laid out right beside my bed that way when my alarm goes off I can log in to my MyDisneyExperience account via the mobile app and be ready to go right before 6:00 a.m. 

    Christina, if you are looking for any dining recommendations I have so many favorites. Right now, my current go-to spot is The BOATHOUSE at Disney Springs. It's set right on the lake and provides stunning views as the sun goes down. There's something on the menu for everyone but I always order the lobster roll served warm with butter and upgrade to the truffle fries. My mouth is watering right now just typing that out. In fact, I planned a last-minute weekend trip once around a reservation I was able to snag there. It's that good! 

    I hope this helps you plan out when you'll need to book those dining reservations, Christina. If you have any other questions along the way, stop back by and ask me. I'm here to help.

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
