    Is dining reservation done Only online or can I also call Disney to get someone help me reserve dining? The 60 days in advance booking is all full 60 days out for popular choices like Be my Guest or Cinderella royal dining, how can I still make this work!?

    Hey there, Cassandra, and welcome back to planDisney! I see you’re planning a trip to Walt Disney World later this year and would like to enjoy some wonderful meals while you’re visiting! Some of my very best Disney memories are of the meals we have been able to enjoy together as a family. Since the phased reopening of Walt Disney World, some restaurants remain closed. A list of currently operational restaurants can be found on the Experience Updates dining page.

    Regarding making a dining reservation, this can absolutely be done either online or via phone. The phone number is (407) 939-3463. In my experience, however, the availability will be the same whether you book online or via phone with a Cast Member. The best thing to do for reservation availability would be to check back regularly, as people often change their plans as the dates draw close. Also, I highly recommend the Touring Plans Walt Disney World reservation finder, which will check for reservations for you and alert you when one becomes available. I have used it in the past, and it has allowed me to have a lot of luck getting those hard-to-find reservations, and it is free of charge! 

    For those times when a dining reservation is not available or doesn't work into your day, please know that you can enjoy a meal at one of the many wonderful Quick Service dining locations around Walt Disney World, and often you can use Mobile Ordering via your My Disney Experience Mobile App to make the process quicker and easier! 

    Cassandra, I hope that this information helps you continue to make delicious plans for your magical end-of-the-year vacation! What a wonderful way to ring in a brand new year and celebrate with loved ones! 

    Bon Appetit!
