You can eliminate the second strtotime() call by just adding 86,400 seconds (the total # of seconds in a day):

$tomorrow = date("Y-m-d",strtotime("2013-05-13")+86400);

One more time... It's all in this article that I keep encouraging you to read!


<?php // RAY_temp_rgb192.php
ini_set('display_errors', TRUE);
ini_set('log_errors',     TRUE);

$date = '2013-05-13';
$plus = date('Y-m-d', strtotime($date . ' + 1 DAY'));
var_dump($date, $plus);
