Going to Disney World requires quite a bit of planning. That means knowing where you’re staying, how long you’ll be there, and for many of us, where you want to eat! And we always stress the importance of planning ahead when it comes to food, which means making Advance Dining Reservations for those restaurants that are on your must-do lists!
And here’s the deal — you’ll need to make some of those reservations, particularly the hard-to-get ones, 60 days out! But that gives you nearly two months before those reservations, meaning that your plans might change. Well, what do you do then?

First, there’s transportation, whether you’re flying or driving to get to Disney World. Then there are other fees to consider — are you checking baggage on your flight and is there a fee for that? Do you have to pay for airport parking? How much will you spend on food while traveling? The list can go on and on before you ever even get to Orlando!

This week has been busy in the parks and online as there was a bit of a misstep on the Disney World dining reservation page. This past Tuesday, there was a VERY surprising amount of availability for popular restaurants whose bookings tend to sell out quickly.
After many guests made reservations for spots like Be Our Guest and Chef Mickey’s (including us!), the site went down with technical difficulties. We later shared that these surprise reservations were ultimately released due to a glitch and would be canceled.
Since Disney World began its phased reopening, several new services have appeared in the parks as well as on My Disney Experience to provide a more convenient, contact-free dining experience. These services include Mobile Order To Go, Mobile Dine Check-In, and Mobile Dine Walk-Up.
