    I know I can make dining reservations 180 days before my arrival date but time of day does it start?

    Hello Theresa! Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Planning Disney Dining experiences is almost as fun as planning visits to the Disney Parks! I will often spend as much time exploring dining options as I will planning our days at the parks! Disney Dining offers so many unique experiences for Guests. From elegant dining to Character Dining experiences, you will find a great meal to celebrate any occasion or just a special day at the Walt Disney World Resort!

    You are correct that you can make your Disney Dining reservations 180-days prior to your arrival. You can begin making those reservations at 6:00AM EST by visiting the Disney Dining page online or by using the My Disney Experience mobile app. You can also begin making reservations by calling (407)WDW-DINE beginning at 7:00AM EST.

    Theresa, if you have a very special Disney Dining experience in mind, I strongly recommend that you use the 6:00AM option. The most popular Disney Dining experiences can book quickly!
