    I am coming to visit the parks on February 26-March 1 2024 and I wanted to know the earliest I am able to book dining reservations?


    Thanks for asking your question to planDisney!

    To make dining reservations at Walt Disney World, a guest can go online 60 days before the date in question. That means, when you want to book that first magical meal for your arrival date of February 26, 2024, you can make those plans starting on December 28, 2023. 

    There are a few additional tidbits to keep in mind, as you make your plans.

    1. If you are not staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, then you will want to call in each day, starting on the 28th, to make reservations day by day. 
    2. If you are staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, on that first call-in date of the 28th, you can go ahead and book forward for your entire trip. They allow those guests to book up to 10 days into their trip.

    BONUS TIP #1
    Did you know that the Disney Dining Plans are back? You might want to check out these two plans to see if one is a good match for your trip!

    BONUS TIP #2
    The opportunity to book dining typically opens up around the 5:45 am to 6:00 am time frame each day. For those hard-to-get dining reservations, like a meal with the princesses at Cinderella's Royal Table, you may want to call in early to secure your table. For most meals, you don't have to be the early bird, but as you can imagine, there are a few that book up rather quickly.

    BONUS TIP #3
    For some of those same hard-to-get reservations, you may find that they have more availability later in your trip. So if you can, save those for the latter part of your magical journey.

    Please feel free to write me back directly if you have any follow-up questions. Especially if you want some recommendations on where to dine. I always love chatting about food!

    Have a Magical Vacation!
