    If I am signed on to my account with my reservation number will I automatically be able to make dining reservations for my whole trip online? Are there any penalties for canceling a reservation? Thanks!

    Hi Kimberly,

    I hope you're having LOTS of fun planning your vacation to the most magical place on earth! To me, all of the time spent planning just makes me look forward to our upcoming trip even more!

    While all Guests are able to make dining reservations 180 days in advance, you're exactly right that there is an advantage when making dining reservations for Disney Resort hotel guests. Once your Disney Resort hotel reservation has been linked to your My Disney Experience account, you'll be able to make dining reservations for the entire length of your stay, up to 10 days, at that 180-day point, giving you access to even more restaurant availability! Enjoy choosing from all of the fun and delicious dining options!

    Before making your reservations, I'd encourage you to check each restaurant's specific cancellation policy. You'll find it in the blue "Guest Policies" box on the last page during the reservation process. While most restaurants allow you to cancel without penalty up to one day prior to your reservation, you'll want to confirm that before booking. Also, there are a few restaurants that require prepayment, so while you may still be able to cancel your reservation, it may take a little bit of time for you to receive a refund.

    I'm sending some pixie dust that you'll be able to find the perfect dining reservations for your trip! If you have any other questions as you're planning, Kimberly, don't hesitate to come back and ask us as we're always happy to help. I hope that you have a truly magical...and delicious...vacation!
