    i am trying to make dining reservations 60 days out and won't allow me to ... can you help me?

    Welcome to planDisney Tracey!

    With so many amazing restaurants at Walt Disney World, I can understand wanting to get your Dining Reservations locked in! Before you get started, make sure you are within your 60 day booking window. Whenever I have trouble, it is usually because I am trying just a day or 2 too soon. 

    To book your dining reservations online, go to and roll over the tab "Things to Do" and select "Make Reservations" under Dining.  You can select your date, party size, and preferred time and all available restaurants will be listed. Choose your time and location, and you can confirm your reservation with a credit card deposit. 

    If you prefer to book using the My Disney Experience app, click the "+" with the circle around it on the bottom of the page, right in the middle. A bunch of rectangular boxes will pop up, choose the top one which is "Check Dining Availability." Same drill, select party size and date and go from there. 

    Since all Dining Reservations need to be secured with a credit card guarantee, make sure to cancel any unwanted reservations at least 24 hours prior to avoid cancelation fees. 

    Now the fun part: Which restaurants to choose? For an amazing buffet, try Boma - Flavors of Africa in Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. We enjoy this as a first night dinner, followed by a walk out by the Savanah to see if you can spot any wildlife roaming. It is a perfect way to kick-off a Disney vacation!

    I hope you get all the Dining Reservations you are looking for. If not, keep checking back as guests are constantly changing and canceling plans so you just never know what might become available. Good luck!

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
