    I live on the West Coast so your 7 am is my 4 am which is early to get up and call to make reservations. Can I do it on line 180 days out at midnight East coast time

    Hi Mike,

    Thanks for visiting Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    You know the old saying — "Early to bed and early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise, and gets him the chance to to dine at Cinderella's Royal Table."

    Or the other old saying — "The early bird gets the worm, and the 'Grey Stuff' at Be Our Guest Restaurant.

    I'm sorry to say, Mike, that making dining reservations at your 180-day mark will involve some earnest and early morning activity for you. You are able to make your restaurant reservations online at 180 days of your arrival date at 6:00 a.m. East Coast Time. You can call the Disney Reservation Center by phone starting at 7:00 a.m. East Coast Time.

    So while you will be getting a really early start from your locale, you'll be improving your opportunity to select some of the really in-demand dining experiences. It's a good idea to prepare in advance and have your My Disney Experience account all set up and ready to go, and also have your dining wish list as well as some alternatives.

    When you have all your reservations taken care of, you can go back to bed for the sweet dreams of all the fantastic dining experiences awaiting you on your Walt Disney World vacation.

    Enjoy your Disney!

Meet the Panelist: Jerry, Pennsylvania

The playful and creative optimism of all things Disney has enthralled me since I was a kid. I loved watching "The Wonderful World of Disney" on Sunday nights, seeing all the live-action and animated classics in theaters, and — of course — visiting "The Most Magical Place on Earth" for the first time 45 years ago. These days, the big kid in me still loves to play Disney. As a long-time Disney destinations vacationer, I'm looking forward to helping you play Disney starting here at planDisney!
