    If you have a room only reservation at a Disney Resort , can you book dining for all days of your stay at the 60 day point, or do you have to also have park tickets on your Disney experience? Still planning how many park vs non-park days.

    Hello Cynthia,

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question! There is so much to see and do during a Walt Disney World vacation, it can be a challenge to decide which parks you want to visit, how many days you want to spend at each on, and when you want to schedule non-park days to relax at your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, explore Disney Springs, or even head off to a water park. There are so many options!

    As a Disney Resort Hotel guest you will be able to make your dining reservations and book many of your Enchanting Extras for your entire vacation (or 10 days of it) beginning 60 days from your check-in day. You don't need to have park tickets attached to your account. Although you will want to monitor the theme park reservation availability calendar. If days start to become unavailable in the weeks leading up to your 60 day mark, you might need to purchase your park tickets earlier and lock in those park reservations.

    Otherwise, I like the flexibility of being able to book dining reservations first and then choosing where I'll spend my days based around those plans. That way if you are really hoping to dine at a popular restaurant like Cinderella's Royal Table, you can select from dates throughout your stay and then reserve that date for a visit to Magic Kingdom. Likewise, if you score a reservation to brunch at Chef Art Smith's Homecomin', maybe that would be a great day to choose as a non-park day. That way you'll be able to linger over a great meal, do some shopping in Disney Springs, and enjoy the afternoon or evening lounging at the pool, dining, making s'mores, and taking in a movie under the stars.

    Just don't forget to keep an eye on that reservation calendar. The only thing worse than not being able to get a reservation to your favorite restaurant inside a park would be to get the reservation but then not be able to go because the park has no more availability.

    Hope this helps. Have a magical vacation!
