    Why can’t I make dining reservations for the whole period of my stay?

    Hello there, Lawrence!

    This Jersey girl is so excited that you found planDisney. Personally, I like to make at least one table service advanced dining reservation for each day of my vacation. The Walt Disney World Resort’s themed dining makes eating feel like an entire experience. 

    Like Princess Tiana, let’s dig a little deeper to figure out why you may not be able to make dining reservations. First, let’s make sure you’re aware of the latest guidance on when you can make advanced dining reservations. Guests with a Valid Disney Resort Hotel Reservation can make reservations for their entire length of stay (for up to a 10-night stay) up to 60 days before your arrival. All other Guests can make reservations up to 60 days in advance, and you’ll need to make reservations 60 days out for each day of your vacation. 

    If you aren't a Resort Hotel Guest, as long as you are 60 days out from your vacation, you should be able to make reservations for restaurants that offer reservations for at least one day of your trip. If you are a Guest with a Valid Disney Resort hotel reservation and you can’t make reservations for your length of stay, check your My Disney Experience account to see that your Resort hotel reservation appears under your plans and tickets. If your reservation doesn’t appear, you can link your reservation manually. If all of this doesn’t work, I recommend calling a Cast Member to ask them for help with booking your reservations. 

    When my 60-day mark comes up, you’ll find me online at 5:45 am to book some of my favorite restaurants, including Space 220 Restaurant at EPCOT, The Hollywood Brown Derby at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Yak & Yeti Restaurant at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park, and Cinderella’s Royal Table at Magic Kingdom Park.    

    May the magic be with you!
