    Hi there, Justin.

    Welcome to planDisney! You're only two months away from your exciting adventure to The Most Magical Place on Earth. Pretty soon you'll be sailing the high seas with a crew of swashbuckling pirates and blasting off to galaxies far, far away. I bet you can't wait!

    Dining is an integral part of any Walt Disney World Resort vacation, so I'm glad you stopped by with this question. Booking advanced dining reservations can be a bit tricky during holiday weeks, so I understand feeling a bit overwhelmed. If you haven't already done so, I suggest you make a list of one or two restaurants for each day of your vacation that you would like to dine at, as well as the time you hope to have your meal. This gives you plenty of options in case your top choice has no availability when you go to book your dining reservations. When you've got your list ready to go, you can reach out to the friendly Cast Members at Disney Dining for assistance by calling 407-939-3463. They've got all the pixie dust needed to help make your dining dreams come true.    

    Justin, if you decide you want to try and make dining reservations yourself, you can easily do that through your My Disney Experience account either on the app or from a browser. On the home screen in your My Disney Experience App, click the plus sign and select "Check Dining Availability." Input the number of individuals in your dining party, then choose the day and time you are interested in. You may find that your top choice of restaurants may not have availability for the day or times you need. If this happens, try clicking on each time option under "Search by Time." Reservations may pop up that weren't there before. When you find a time that works, click on it and follow the steps to complete your booking.

    If you do this from a browser, click "Add More Plans" on your My Plans page in your My Disney Experience account. Select "Dining Reservations" from the list of options, and click "Search Times." Input your party size, day, and time, then "Search Times" again. Much like in the app, you can continue searching by clicking on each option in the drop down box for times. Once you find an option that works for you, click on the time and follow the steps to complete the booking process. If you aren't able to find an ideal time at first, keep checking back. People's plans change frequently, so availability may open up at some point before you arrive for your trip.

    Justin, whether you decide to go this on your own or ask for a little pixie dust from the Cast Members at Disney Dining, I hope you are successful in your endeavor to book delicious meals to look forward to on your trip. No matter what, I know you will make core memories to last a lifetime on your magical Walt Disney World Resort adventure.

    See ya real soon,
