    Hi Stacy, 

    Welcome to planDisney and thank you for stopping by with your question about Advanced Dining Reservations. your visit to Walt Disney World Resort is a few months away, how exciting!  I love visiting in November, it is a great way to kick off the holiday season! 

    I am so sorry to hear that you have been having some difficulty making your Advanced Dining Reservations.  Booking Reservations online open at 6:00 am at the 60 day window and guests staying on property are able to make reservations for the length of stay (up to 10 days).  So even though the 60 day window opens for you on a specific date, other guests may have access prior due to their extended resort stays.  What I like to do is plan in reverse, and booking any really popular dining locations near the end of my visit for the best chance to secure the reservation.  

    Even if you aren't able to secure your Advanced Dining Reservations right away, don't give up.  Guests change plans and more reservations do become available so keep checking.  I have had luck securing some tough reservations around a week prior to our visit.  

    If by the time of your visit you have not yet made your Advanced Dining Reservations head to your preferred Dining Location once you enter the Theme Park and ask the Cast Member if there are any Same-Day Walk Up Dining Reservations.  Most locations do have a limited number of Same-Day Reservations depending on capacity.  

    I hope you are able to make your Advanced Dining Reservations, Stacy.  If you have any other questions please come back to planDisney, we are always happy to help.
