    I'm trying to make a dining reservation for June 11th but it's not showing up as available to make any reservations despite being 60days away and after 6 am EST. The date is grayed out.

    Hey there, hi there, Allison! You're as welcome as can be here at planDisney!

    Woohoo! You're less than 60 days away from your magical adventure at The Most Magical Place on Earth! How exciting! If you're anything like me, one of the most important parts of a Disney vacation (or any vacation for that matter) is the food. So, let's chat Advance Dining Reservations and get your loose planning ends tied up so you can sit back, soak in the magic and start your pixie-dusted countdown.

    In my experience, while most dining reservations can be made when your booking window opens 60 days in advance, they're not always available for booking right away. I have noticed that sometimes, certain restaurants or dining experiences aren't released when the booking window first opens, and when this is the case, the dates are grayed out and unable to be selected.

    I recommend checking back and checking back often. Since you are within your booking window, your desired dining reservation could be released any day now, so check back at least twice a day (morning and afternoon) to snag a reservation on the Walt Disney World website or My Disney Experience app as soon as they are released into the booking system. Happy hunting!

    Since your booking window is open, don't forget to book some Enchanting Extras, Allison! I love adding at least one of these amazing experiences to each one of my Walt Disney World Resort vacations. These Extras keep every trip extra magical! Happy booking!

    I hope this helps, Allison, and I hope you get to book your must-do dining reservation soon! Please stop by any time with any questions you may have along the way. You've got a friend in me!

    Adventure is out there!
