    how can i make dinner reservations for coral reef restaurant in epcot

    Hello Andrea!

    Welcome to planDisney! The Coral Reef Restaurant is one of the more unique dining locations at the Walt Disney World Resort. Located within The Seas with Nemo and Friends pavilion, Coral Reef offers dinner with a view. Dine with the locals as you watch some of the 2,000 residents of The Seas pass by the large viewing windows throughout the restaurant!

    Advance Dining Reservations can be made 60 days in advance by Guests staying off-property, while those staying at a Disney Resort Collection Hotel may make reservations for the entire visit, up to 10 days, beginning 60 days before resort check-in. Sign in to your My Disney Experience Account on a desktop and go to Dining Reservations. You can also go directly to the restaurant page and select the Check Availability button. From the My Disney Experience Mobile App, select the + sign at the bottom of the page and you’ll see a menu open with the option to make dining reservations.

    If your trip is less than a month away, you may find the restaurant is booked. People can and do cancel, so I would check back regularly, particularly in the days leading up to the day you wish to dine. Other Guests do tend to cancel in the days leading up to the reservation to avoid the late cancelation fee. I find that Disney luck favors those who stalk reservations, so keep trying if you can’t initially find a reservation. If you have a large group, you may need to have several Guests in your party each book several smaller tables at or around the same time, since currently, seating isn’t generally available for parties larger than 6 at most locations.

    Sending you pixie dust for that perfect reservation, Andrea! Let me know if you have any additional questions before your visit, we love talking Disney and are here to help!
