    Hi. If we arrive on the 23rd March 2023 when is the earliest we can book dining reservations? We are coming for 14 days. Thanks Jon

    Hi Jon,

    It's nice to see you planning Disney at planDisney again. Your Walt Disney World Resort vacation at the end of March 2023 allows you to witness the EARidescent sunset of The World's Most Magical Celebration. Be sure to experience both nighttime spectaculars that debuted as part of the festivities: Disney Enchantment at Magic Kingdom Park and Harmonious at EPCOT. With a two-week stay, you'll be able to witness each from a variety of angles. I recommend seeing Disney Enchantment once from the hub in front of Cinderella Castle and once from Main Street, U.S.A. The imagineers' projection mapping skills are on display and worthy of their standing ovation.

    Guests staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel may book their dining reservations up to 60 days in advance for the duration of their stay (up to 10 days). If you are staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel and arriving on March 23, this means you can book dining reservations for March 23 - April 1 on January 22. Reservations for days 11-14 of your trip can be made as each day reaches the 60-day mark. In terms of strategy, I recommend scheduling hard-to-get reservations like character dining experiences on days 7-10 of your trip to ensure maximum availability of reservation times. If you are not staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, advance dining reservations for each day can be made up to 60 days in advance.

    Advance dining reservations can be made online or by calling the Dining Reservations number listed on this directory. Online reservations go live around 5:45 a.m. EST (USA) time. If I'm doing the time zone math correctly, Jon, that translates to 10:45 a.m. BST. My best tip is to be logged into your My Disney Experience account at 10:45 a.m. with the website of your top choice restaurant pulled up. Click "check availability" and refresh the page regularly until your date is available for selection.  

    You've got some time to peruse menus online and dream big for your upcoming dining adventures, Jon. Some of my favorite table service dining experiences include Le Cellier at EPCOT, Art Smith's Homecomin' at Disney Springs, and 'Ohana at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort. If you're looking for tips on what entrees pair nicely with fireworks views or any other Disney details, you know where to find us!

    Plan magic; planDisney.
