    We will visit WDW in December and stay at a Disney hotel.For advance dining reservations, I have read that you can book 60 days in advance plus the length of your stay. Is that correct? Do you have to call to reserve? Online only allows 60 days out.Thanks

    Hello Irene! Disney Dining questions are some of my favorites to answer! Of course, in answering these questions, I usually get hungry thinking about some of my favorite Disney Dining locations. 

    Guests can make advanced dining reservations 60-days prior to their vacation arrival date. You can make reservations for the length of your stay. As an example, your stated vacation arrival date on December 8, 2021, means that you can begin making your advanced dining reservations on October 9, 2021. You can make your reservations for the length of your stay (up to 10 days).

    You can make your reservations using My Disney Experience account! This can be done either online at the Walt Disney World Resort website or by using your My Disney Experience mobile app! I prefer using the mobile app. It seems to be a bit more user-friendly when making reservations. You can begin making your reservations at 6:00 AM EST using either method.

    Irene, you can also call the Disney Dining line at (407)-939-DINE to make your reservations. This line opens at 7:00 AM. Please note that using this line rather than the online or app reservations puts Guests at a slight disadvantage because other Guests can begin making reservations an hour earlier online or on the app! This is especially important to know if you plan on trying to make reservations for some of the most popular restaurants! They book extremely fast!
