    Why can’t I make a dining reservation for the morning I’m checking out of a Disney resort?

    It’s a great day to see you at planDisney, Josyane!

    Thanks for stopping by with your question for us. 

    Leaving Walt Disney World Resort is my least favorite part of the trip. The feelings of post-Disney-vacation blues are beginning to bubble up; this is why I like to treat myself, especially on the day I’m leaving. This is also why I understand the importance of making delectable dining reservations on the day you check out; getting a taste of that last Mickey waffle or your favorite meal until your next trip is of utmost importance!

    You are considered a Guest of your Disney Resorts Collection hotel until midnight of your checkout date. This means that even once you’ve checked out of your room, you can use amenities like your Disney Resort hotel pool and facilities on the day you check out. You’ll also be happy to know that Bell Services will keep your luggage secure until you’re ready to leave. Did you know that most Disney Resort hotels offer a private indoor shower area located near the larger pool? This is great to use after you’ve checked out and still want to use the pool. Be sure to check with a Cast Member at your resort for the shower location and accessibility. 

    Josyane, Guests with valid Disney Resort hotel reservations can make dining reservations for the entire length of their stay for up to a 10-night visit 60 days before arrival. All other Guests will need to make reservations 60 days out for each day of their vacation. Since we already know you’re a Guest of a Disney Resort hotel, you should be able to make dining reservations for the length of your vacation, as long as it is up to 10 nights. 

    First, you’ll want to ensure the dining location you’d like to experience accepts reservations. Next, please check in your My Disney Experience account that your hotel reservation appears in your My Plans section with the correct dates. I also recommend trying to make reservations at different dining locations. If this doesn’t work, you’ll want to call a Cast Member to ask them for help with your reservation. 

    Wishing you an enchanting visit, Josyane!
