    Good Morning!!!! Official disney countdown to trip - 198 days, 17 hours, 13 minutes and 30 seconds and still counting.... I am so excited about getting my dining reservations secured but how soon can I do them on day 180? Trying for Be Our Guest.

    Hello, Sybil! My upcoming trip is only a few days sooner than yours! It seems so far away, but I have a feeling that this year will go by super fast. I always set an alarm and wake up early on my 180 day mark to go over my plans and start the Advanced Dining Reservation process. The Online Reservation System opens up at 6:00 AM EST or if you'd rather call, the phone reservation system opens at 7:00 AM EST. I suggest that you wake up at least a half an hour before to prepare. Also, always fit in some wiggle room just in case you don't get a specific time that you want. If you can't get a reservation at a particular restaurant, keep trying! Check back regularly because people call everyday to cancel reservations. I have gotten quite a few hard-to-come-by reservations just by being persistent. 

    Good Luck and I hope the Be Our Guest Restaurant availability is wide open for you. 

    If you need anything else, you know where to find us. Happy planning, and have a magical day!
