If Iím doing a split stay, (1-5 at one resort and 6th at another), will I be allowed to make dining reservations on the 6th and 7th that same day as I make them for the 1st-5th if I link the reservations?

I've had to wait for the second window to open for those reservations. Some have said you can call MS to link the stays so you can have one window (if both stays on the same account), but I haven't tried that before to know if it works.

TexasChick's reservations can't be linked since they are for different resorts.

AFAIK, MS can make ADRs for the length of both stays if you call.

I was under the impression that people have said they did this for separate resorts, but I couldn't understand why they would bother with the restrictions if having separate windows if you could just call to get around it. Could have just been bad reading comprehension on my part. Good to know that they will help you make ADR's over the phone though for split stays. That will help out with our longer summer trips

I had the same thing with our upcoming trip. We had three separate reservations (eventually the waitlist came through and we're down to one) and so we had three separate windows for booking dining online. They all showed up in MDE across my days and resorts. I didn't bother with calling to get a jump on my last days because, well, I just didn't care enough.

Fortunately, FP+ booking works properly with consecutive reservations.

OK. We live in the central time zone. I just wanted to TRIPLE check before I wake up at the crack of dawn that online dining reservations open at 6am ET which would be 5am CT. I believe the phones open at 7am ET. Please chime in when you can. Thanks.
