    We have a three resort split stay trip in November. The first resort is just me and my husband, the other two include other family members. Can I make ADR for all of us through out the stay on the 60 day out date of my arrival?

    Hiya Jane! Welcome back to planDisney!

    I love doing a split-stay at The Walt Disney World Resort! This is a great way to get to know multiple resorts during your visit and see which ones may be future favorites! Each resort at Walt Disney World has something different to offer, so you will almost feel like you've had three different vacations! Ka-Chow!

    Unfortunately, Jane, the downside to a split-stay is that you're unable to make advance dining reservations for the entirety of your stay. You will be able to make these reservations 60 days in advance of your arrival at the first Disney Resort Hotel, but only for the length of your stay at that resort. Then, 60 days out from your check-in at the next Disney Resort Hotel, you can make dining reservations in advance for that length of stay and so on. I know this isn't the most ideal way, as you'll be setting that alarm three separate times to wake up and grab the best restaurants. However, it is quite worth it for the opportunity to experience so many magical accommodations in one trip.

    When I do a split-stay, I make sure to mark my calendar for 60 days before each check-in. Then, I set my alarm for 5:45 a.m. ET on the day my dining reservation window opens up and open up my "must-have" restaurants each in their own window on my browser. I hit that refresh button as soon as the clock strikes 6:00 a.m. ET and I'm off to the races to make my dining dreams come true! With a stay as long as yours, you may want to make a list of the places you'd like to eat ahead of time, so you can check the availability right away when it is time to reserve them!

    Jane, I also wanted to point out that your trip coincides with the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival, so you may not need advance dining reservations at EPCOT at all! At this festival, you'll find Global Marketplaces showcasing small bites and tasty drinks from all over the world. This Foodie Guide may help you zero in on some of the items you'd like to try, so you can make your menu in advance! While it is not quite a dining reservation, it is an excellent way to fill up on tasty food and stay in the action!
