    I have two resort reservations. the first one is allowing me dining reservations but the second one isnt . May 18-21 is first res. 21-26 is second. Do I need to wait until the 60th day for the second one to open up the calendar?

    Hi Susun,

    Welcome to planDisney!

    Hooray for having a split stay at the Walt Disney World Resort. You have encountered the advanced dining reservation dilemma with split stays. Your booking window for the second half of your stay coincides with that "arrival" date. If you have trouble making reservations for the second part of your stay, do not worry. With harder to get dining reservations, availability has opened up for us just prior to the visit, sometimes the day before we hoped to dine at a particular location.

    As you continue to make those plans, remember to consider transportation if you have early morning dining reservations. We typically stay at a resort hotel with Walt Disney World® Monorail Transportation access or at a resort that is within walking distance to a theme park. When not at one of these resort locations, we have had to use a ride share service like Uber or Lyft or Disney Minnie Van™ Service Connected by Lyft to get to those early morning dining reservations.

    Looking at your arrival date, I hope you have considered one or two special experiences. Take a look at the Enchanting Extras Collection. We love Up Close with Rhinos and Caring for Giants. Both of these tours were perfect for our family's budget and just the right amount of time for us. For an extra special experience, try Savor the Savanna. The views are breathtaking. We enjoy learning about the animal care and conservation efforts. It really is amazing!

    Susun, I am sprinkling a little extra pixie dust trusting that you get all of those dining reservations!

    Magic and memories,
