    If a date for dining reservations opens at 12AM, what time do the actual restaurants become active to make the dining reservation? Last night 8/16/22 opened up but all of the restaurants gave errors when trying to book. This morn, they are unavailable.

    Hi Lou!

    Welcome to planDisney!

    I apologize that you had a tough time making your advanced dining reservations. You can begin making advanced dining reservations 60 days prior to your check-in date at 7 am. I am unsure why all of the restaurants that you want to book are showing unavailable. If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, you can begin booking your advanced dining reservation 60 days in advance for the length of your trip (up to 10 days.) Possibly, the dining reservations that you tried to book were made by guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel and they had booked them upon their 60-day check-in day mark. 

    The good news is that availability changes frequently based on cancellations. Therefore, there is still plenty of time for a reservation to become available. Make sure you check the site frequently and grab a reservation when it opens up.

    Also, you can take advantage of Mobile Dine Walk-Up Availability. Using My Disney Experience, you can check availability at participating restaurants while you are in the park and add your party to the walk-up list.

    I hope you have a magical vacation!
