    I am staying on a resort just located outside Disney. How soon should I book the Character Dinners? and Do I have to be staying on Disney in order to book in advance?

    Hi Lori!

         You are a guest of Disney World, no matter where you stay!  Of course, you are welcome (and encouraged) to call 1-407-WDW-DINE 90 days before you would like to make your Advanced Dining Reservation.  Unfortunately, you will have to make a separate call for each day that you would like to dine.  Only those guests staying on property can make dining reservations for more than one day at a time.  As a guest, you are also welcome to enjoy all of the FREE Disney transportation that is available.  So go ahead, let the countdown begin!!!

    Much pixie dust,
