    Unable to make dining reservations. How do I go about doing this?

    Howdy Tina!

    Welcome to planDisney!  Chatting about all the dining experiences at the Walt Disney World Resort always puts a "Rumbly in my Tumbly!" Thank you for sharing your question with us!

    It is always a great day when the 60-day window opens to make my advanced dining reservations!  Since the Walt Disney World Resort is in a phased re-opening process, some advanced dining reservations may be challenging to book.  It looks like you are already within your 60-day window!  Now it's time to score some yummy dining experiences.  I like to use the My Disney Experience mobile app to make my advanced dining reservations.  Once you open up your app, click on the plus symbol at the bottom of the page.  A menu of options will pop up, and you will see the option to "Check Dining Availability." After choosing this option, you will create your party size and choose your date.  Now, select the time of day you would like to dine, and all of your dining options will pop up!  If you cannot find a particular restaurant for a specific day, I recommend checking back regularly and at different times during the day.  Since guests' plans are changing all the time, you never know when you might score your must-do advanced dining reservation!  On our visit to the Walt Disney World Resort at the beginning of the month, I was able to score a couple of our favorite dining locations a week before our vacation.  Also, the new Disney Genie Service feature on your My Disney Experience offers a Walk-Up List!  !  You may be able to find a yummy option during each day at the theme parks through the Walk-Up List feature!

    As you explore several dining locations, check the menu and ask your server if they are offering any unique appetizers, entrees, desserts, or drinks to celebrate "The World's Most Magical Celebration!" Many dining experiences offer yummy EARidescent fun to celebrate 50 years of "Making Dreams Come True" at "The Most Magical Place on Earth" right now!  We were able to try a few of these offerings a couple of weeks ago, and they were all tons of fun!

    To stay informed of everything to see and do during your visit, check the Disney Parks Blog!  If you have any more questions about dining or any other planning questions, please come back to planDisney!  We look forward to helping you with your planning questions so that you will make unforgettable memories in December, Tina!

    See Ya Real Soon,
