    Our 180 day window is upon us and I wanted to know at what time can I start making dining reservations? Does the system allow you to start at 12:01 EST or is there a set time reservations can start to be made? Thanks.

    Hi Jack,

    I always find that 180-day mark to be so exciting! It's fun to begin dreaming about all of the delicious and fun meals my family will get to share together, and I love seeing my plans all come together in My Disney Experience!

    You'll find that you'll be able to make advanced dining reservations beginning 180 days ahead of time by calling (407) WDW-DINE or (407) 939-3463 beginning at 7:00 a.m. Eastern time. You will find some restaurant availability begin showing up even earlier online, with some restaurants showing availability beginning at 5:45 a.m. Eastern time. Did you know that if you're staying at a Disney Resort hotel, you will be able to make dining reservations for the entire length of your stay, up to 10 days, at that 180 point? That's a great benefit and could help you find one of those hard to grab reservations!

    Sending pixie dust that you'll find the perfect dining reservations for your party! Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Jack, and please let us know if you have any other questions as you're planning your trip. Have a magical...and delicious...vacation!
