    Since I am staying at a Disney resort in May, I understand that I can make ADR 60 days from my date of check-in. Will My Disney Experience automatically know to release rez dates 66 days from my check-in; do I need to call dining to speak to cast member?

    Hi there, Christine! I'm so glad you've stopped by planDisney to chit-chat about one of my favorite things - Disney dining! 

    Christine, you are on the right track thinking about your Walt Disney World dining reservations. It's best to have a plan because some of the best places really do fill up quite quickly. You are able to make your Walt Disney World advanced dining reservations 60 days in advance for the length of your stay up to 10 days. You have two options to do this - online or over the phone. I do recommend doing this online because the reservation system opens up here first starting at 6:00 a.m. When you go to make your advanced dining reservations you will log in to your MyDisneyExperience account. By doing this, you'll be able to make your dining reservations for the length of your stay automatically because the system will recognize your existing reservation. To have a Cast Member assist you with your dining reservation you'll call 407-WDW-DINE starting at 7:00 a.m. Mickey Mouse's time. You'll give them your reservation information and they will help you with all of your dining needs. You'll give them the restaurant, party size, day and time and if there is availability they'll book it for you. 

    If you are looking for a dining suggestion, Christine, I highly recommend The BOATHOUSE at Disney Springs. I try to dine there each time I visit Walt Disney World. The restaurant is set right on the lake and provides stunning views as the sun goes down. The menu has something for everyone. My current go-to order is the lobster roll served warm with butter and I always upgrade to the truffle fries. They are delicious! If there's room for dessert, you can't go wrong with the key lime pie in a jar. It's tart and light. The perfect ending to a wonderful meal. 

    I hope this helps, Christine. If you have any other questions about this or anything else, please feel free to stop back by and ask me. I'm happy to help.

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
