    My family and I have a vacation package booked for June 2018. Dining reservations can be made 180 days in advance...at what time of day can those reservation start being made? Thank you for any help. Have a magical day!

    Hi, Holly! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Your family must be counting down the days until your magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!  Planning my Disney Dining reservations is one of my favorite parts of planning my vacations! We always try to visit at LEAST one new Disney restaurant that no one has yet experienced. You are correct that you can start making your Advanced Dining Reservations 180 days in advance! As per the Frequently Asked Questions web page, “Reservation availability for select Walt Disney World restaurants typically begins each day at approximately 5:45 AM (when done online), and the Disney Reservation Center is open for calls from 7:00 AM to 11:00 PM Monday through Friday, and 7:00 AM to 8:00 PM on Saturday and Sunday.

    Some Disney restaurants that typically fill-up quickly are Be Our Guest Restaurant, and Beaches & Cream Soda Shop (since you can only order The Kitchen Sink when you dine-in). If those two are on your list, I suggest making your Advanced Dining Reservation as early as possible. Special dining events, such as Fireworks Dessert Parties are also available for reservations 180 days in advance.

    I hope this answers your question and that you have a wonderful day! Bon appétit,
