    I have resort reservation on Disney property (1/23/2023-1/27/23). When can I make dining reservations based on my stay?

    Hello Josie! Welcome to planDisney!

    January may feel far away right now but I assure you your trip to Walt Disney World Resort will be here before you know it! We here at planDisney know that planning a trip to The Most Magical Place on Earth is half the fun, so we would love to help you plan your memorable vacation. 

    Even before your dining due date is upon us you'll want to start brainstorming what types of dining options you're interested in and which are most important to you.  Advance Dining Reservations can be made 60 days in advance of your arrival date for the length of your stay (up to 10 days). Hop on to your My Disney Experience account or mobile app at about 5:45 a.m. EST on your reservation day so that you're ready when booking opens at 6 a.m.  Some reservations are harder to catch than others, so having your top options ready to book is a great idea.  

    If you've already purchased your Theme Park Tickets and made your Theme Park Reservations, you'll want to ensure that your dining reservations correspond with those.  This means that you'll need a Theme Park Reservation at Magic Kingdom if you plan on having a breakfast of Mickey-shaped waffles with your friends from the Hundred-Acre Wood at The Crystal Palace.

    If you can't seem to book everything you want, have no fear! Many times Guests book reservations but have a last-minute change of plans.  As soon as they cancel the reservation will open up for you to grab! If you have your heart set on dining 220 miles up into the sky at the Space 220 Restaurant or having a "rootin'-tootin' good time at the Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue but can't get a reservation at the 60-day mark, just keep checking! I've found that many "hard-to-get" reservations become available just a day or two ahead of time!

    There's nothing quite like the incredibly immersive dining options at Walt Disney World Resort, so whether you want a complete Character Dining Experience or a luxurious award-winning meal make sure to hop on to make those reservations as soon as you're able.

    Sending you extra pixie dust!
