    Hi Tracy!

    I am incredibly sorry that you are having difficulty obtaining advanced reservations for your upcoming trip to Walt Disney World! It sounds like you are doing all of the right things, including booking within your 60-day window and logging onto the site early in the morning. You definitely have a greater chance of obtaining an advanced dining reservation online because you can log on early. However, you can also try booking by calling 407-WDW-DINE. 

    If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Collection Hotel, you can book 60 days for the entire length of your vacation, up to 10-days. Therefore, if you are staying on-site you will have better luck booking advanced dining reservations toward the end of your stay. 

    I have a few other little tips that should help you. Try using a computer rather than your phone to book your reservations. The night before, open up a tab for each of the restaurants you want to book. In the morning, log in to My Disney Experience and book your advanced dining reservations in order of difficulty. 
    This will save you time in the morning because you can have everything ready to go. 

    Don't worry because new reservations open up all of the time due to guests making cancellations. You can also try to obtain advanced dining reservations for less popular times of the day. Having lunch at 2:00 PM or dinner at 4:00 PM usually works for me.

    I hope that these tips help you! Please let us know at planDisney if you need help with anything else!
