    I am staying for 8 consecutive nights at 3 different onsite Disney resorts. Will I be able to make all of my dining reservations from the start of the first day even though we will be switching respects?

    Hi Angela, welcome to planDisney!

    Eight nights at Walt Disney World Resort sounds positively magical. Your choice to stay at not one, not two, but three Disney Resorts Collection hotels tells me you're committed to experiencing a variety of magic moments. Imagine being able to watch Disney Enchantment fireworks from your room at Disney's Contemporary Resort one night and enjoying a late-night Mickey beignet at Scat Cat's Club - Café at Disney's Port Orleans - French Quarter the next. I encourage you to check out the planDisney Pocket Guides for each of your resorts. There you'll find information on accommodations, dining options, and recreational activities.

    There are many perks to staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel. Early theme park entry grants you 30-minute early entry at all four theme parks each day. The early bird gets the shortest wait times, even on your check-in day!

    Another perk of staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel is the ability to book advance dining reservations for your length of stay (up to 10 days) 60 days before check-in. Since you have three different Disney Resort hotel reservations, Angela, your length of stay dining reservations will open up on three separate dates. For example, if you're staying at Resort A for three nights, Resort B for two nights, and Resort C for three nights, you can make advance dining reservations for the first three nights 60 days before your Resort A check-in date. You can make advance dining reservations for the next two nights 60 days before your Resort B check-in date, and you can make advance dining reservations for your last three nights 60 days before your Resort C check-in date.

    When booking advance dining reservations online, note that a new day of reservations typically populates by 6:00 a.m. On my Disney dining mornings, I like to be logged into my My Disney Experience account by 5:45 a.m. while enjoying a cup of coffee in my favorite Disney mug. I recommend trying for the most popular dining reservations such as character dining on the last day of your longest reservation. If you are not finding the availability you seek, just keep trying. Dining availability is constantly changing in real-time as Guests reimagine their park days.  

    I'm sending caffeinated happy thoughts your way, Angela. Thanks for letting planDisney be one of your planning partners.
