    Hello! I am hoping to score some coveted dining reservations for an upcoming trip and I was wondering what time the reservations open up online. I checked at 12 am this morning for Dec 2 but kept getting a error message. Now it’s all booked up.

    Hey There, Hi There, Ho There, Emily!

    Welcome to planDisney! Thank you so much for stopping by, and we are honored to answer your question and help you plan your upcoming trip to The Disneyland Resort! Our goal is to make sure you have the most MAGICAL time!

    I am so sorry you were not able to book some of your coveted Disneyland Dining Reservations in December. I also wish I could give you a definitive answer on when dining reservations become available for Guests; however there is not a clear answer. Based on my experience, I recommend checking for Disneyland Dining Reservations online between 6:00 a.m. and 7:00 a.m. (PST). If, for some reason, reservations are not available to Guests at that time, my recommendation is to always check back periodically throughout the day. 

    Now, I want to encourage you to NOT GIVE UP in booking a dining reservation! Because you were not able to book reservations for your preferred restaurants, start checking online reservations with more frequency a week before your scheduled trip. As you know, schedules can change, and Guests will cancel their reservations in order to avoid paying the no-show penalty. I also wanted you to know that many restaurants will take same-day reservations, if they are available. My recommendation would be to go directly to the restaurant and check reservation availability as soon as the restaurant opens. 

    I am wishing upon a star you are able to make your Disneyland Dining Reservations! If you need anything else, please let us know! We are just a question away!

    See Ya Real Soon!
