    When can you make dining reservations

    Hello there, Melissa!

    From one Marylander to another, welcome to planDisney! You found us at the perfect time because you can start making Walt Disney World Resort dining reservations for your trip, starting 60 days in advance of your arrival date. I'd suggest making any dining reservations as close as possible to the 60-day mark, as some dining locations are extremely popular, and reservations fill up quickly. Most reservations become available online at 6:00 am EST via your My Disney Experience account, but some restaurants may accept reservations as early as 5:45 am EST. 

    If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, you can book your dining reservations 60 days before your arrival and make dining reservations for your entire stay, up to 10 days. This means that if you cannot get a highly sought-after reservation for the first day of your trip, you may have a better chance of making that reservation later on at the end of the trip. For example, my family recently scored a SPACE 220 Restaurant reservation at EPCOT for the last day of our trip since we could book our dining reservations farther out as Resort guests. 

    There are so many incredible dining options at the Walt Disney World Resort, but here are my favorites at each of the four theme parks: 
    Don't even get me started on the dining options available at the Resort hotels. Feel free to contact me directly if you want any other recommendations for counter-service dining, snacks, character dining, and more. 

    May the magic be with you!
