    I live on the east coast and tried to make reservations for dining this morning for our trip on 8/10/21. The site was down the whole time, and the disneyland app would not allow reservations to be made. We were up from 3am to past 6am. How can I reserve?

    Hello Daniel!

    Welcome to planDisney! I’m sorry you had some struggles last week making your dining reservations for the Disneyland Resort. I hope since then you were successful and booked your top choices!

    I think there were a few bumps in the road for you. Dining reservations at the Disneyland Resort currently open 60 days in advance at 7 AM Pacific. If you were looking to book for October 10, then August 11 would be the correct day to book. I’m not sure if you were trying on August 10 as stated in your question or on August 11. Also, since the reservation window opens at 7 AM Pacific, that would be 10 AM Eastern. It sounds as if you thought the window opened at midnight since you mentioned you were up at 3 AM in Massachusetts. As a night shift nurse, that is prime time for me, but I’m sure that was decidedly not a magical time of day for you.

    Hopefully, you were able to book the reservations you wanted. There are still some select locations available during that week. Also, other Guests can and do cancel, so I always recommend checking back regularly for cancelations. I am a big believer that Disney luck comes to those who are persistent and stalk reservations. I tend to check the Mobile App daily or even more than once daily as our trip approaches, hoping to snag one of those cancellations!

    As your trip approaches, Daniel, please feel free to submit additional questions. As you can see, it can take us a few days to get back to you due to the volume of questions, but as Disney fans and experts, we are here to help!
