    When will you open dining reservations for the week of Nov 8 to Nov 15, 2015

    Hi, Richard! The day Advanced Dining Reservations open for an upcoming Disney Parks vacation is one very important date. If you are looking forward to dining at some of the more popular Disney restaurants, you do not want to find yourself two days late and shrieking, "I'm late! I'm late! I'm late!" I do have a tip for you to help you discover your important dates.

    A few years ago, I found a website that helped me calculate my 30, 60, and 180 day windows. As soon as I book a new Disney Parks vacation, I head to to plug in my check-in date, and I then write in my calendar the dates it gives me for 60 days before my trip (to make FastPass+ selections) and 180 days before my trip (for Advance Dining Reservations). Looking at the PS Calculator, I see you will be able to make your dining choices beginning May 12. If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, you will be able to make your dining choices for your entire stay, up to 10 days, on that date. If you are not staying onsite, you will need to book each day's dining choices one day at a time, as in on May 12, you can book for November 8 and on May 13, you can book for November 9, etc.

    Whether you are celebrating birthdays or very merry unbirthdays during your stay at Walt Disney World Resort, I hope you have a fantastic vacation, Richard. Please hop by again if you find curiouser and curiouser questions while you continue planning.
