    If we arrive on Sept 7, when is the first day we can make advance dining registrations?

    Hi Renee,

    Welcome to planDisney! It sounds to me like you might be the planning-a-vacation-with-a-spreadsheet kind of gal. If so, you are in good company around here! We are so glad you found us! 

    Walt Disney World Resort Advance Dining Reservations are available starting at 6 AM Eastern Time 60-Days before your arrival. So, for your September 7, 2024, arrival date, you can begin securing your must-dos on July 9, 2024. If you are sticking close to the magic with a Walt Disney World Resort hotel reservation, then get ready to plan your Advance Dining Reservations for the duration of your stay (up to 10-nights) at that time. That's great! It means that you can secure some of the more popular limited-seating locations a little earlier.

    Quick Tip: Since I can't possibly be trusted to count back the dates myself for our vacations, I use a tool found on to handle the math for me. I enter my arrival date, hit calculate, and it shows me all sorts of booking window dates. You might also enjoy it!

    Renee, Disney Dining is one of my favorite parts of a Walt Disney World Resort vacation. We love our meals as a period of rest, for the incredible flavors and presentation, and for the people around our table. I would love to suggest just a few of our favorites for you:

    1. Steakhouse 71: I will tell everyone who will listen that the Vegetable Wellington is one of my favorite meals anywhere! Plus, the Cast Members here are always delightful and I love the tucked-away location on the first floor of Disney's Contemporary Resort.

    2. Beaches & Cream Soda Shop: There aren't many places where you and all your pals can share one giant ice cream, but this is one! When you order a Kitchen Sink Sundae and lights start flashing, you know you are in for an experience. 

    3. The Turf Club Bar and Grill: I love the atmosphere of this course-side dining location. Hidden away in a Disney Vacation Club Resort, this always feels like a restaurant for treasure seekers, and we always find it! Everything is consistently delicious. 

    I hope that helps as you continue planning the best vacation EVER, Renee! If you have any other questions, please come on back and visit us. We are here for you! 

    Adventure is out there,
