    I have res for Apr 25. I can make dine res this Oct 28. SWA opens flight sched Oct 30. If I make dine res on the 28th and decide to fly the 26th, I'd cancel room res for Apr 25 to arr on 26th. What happens to any dine ressie for 26th and beyond?

    Hi Thomas!

    I love the thought process and attention to detail in your trip planning. You are a planner after my own heart! And you even just helped me by reminding me of the Southwest Airlines booking window at the end of this month. I need April flights too!

    You should go ahead and book any Advanced Dining Reservations you need for April 25th and 26th and through the end of your visit. If you end up needing to adjust the dates of your visit, you would call Disney or your Travel Agent to cancel that single day. On that call, you would be able to cancel any dining reservations you no longer need for the 25th, and you should be able to keep the reservations you made for the 26th and going forward. I hope you get a good airfare for your desired check-in date, Thomas, and your perfect dining reservations!

    Have a Magical Day!
