    Hi Emma. Thanks for all your previous help! When phoning to make dining reservations from England, do you call the 0800 UK number or the USA number and what time do you usually call? I'm hoping to get a reservation for Cinderella's Table. Thanks again!

    Hi again Jill,

    I personally always make my advance dining reservations online via the Walt Disney World website. If I encounter any problems in doing this, I then call Dining Reservations in the USA directly on 001 407 939-3463 and speak to a Cast Member. (In order to make economical telephone calls to the USA from the UK, I always use Skype.)

    If you are hoping for a dining reservation at the extremely popular Cinderella's Royal Table, here is what I recommend that you do:-

    1/ Be logged into the Walt Disney World website at 10.45am at exactly 180 days prior to your visit as the online dining reservation system is updated at 11.00am (UK time) each day.
    (You can work out exactly what day this is on the following website

    2/ Be ready & waiting on the Cinderella's Royal Table Make A Reservation page

    3/ When it strikes 11.00am, where it states "Select Date and Time" on the right hand side of the page, click on the drop down box at the right hand side of the "Date" box and select the month of your trip followed by the day you would like your dining reservation.

    I would practise doing this a couple of times for earlier dates so that you know exactly what you need to do when the time comes.

    The earliest that you can make your advance dining reservations by telephone is at 12 noon (UK time) so if you are struggling, be ready to make the telephone call at bang on 12 noon.

    I hope that this information has been of help and if you are looking for more help in planning your holiday, why not check out my top tips and videos aimed specifically at UK Guests on the My Holiday Planner website

    Wishing you a magical holiday filled with memories which will last a lifetime!
