    I love you guys! Just found out that online dining reservations open at 12:01am and the phone reservations don't open until 7am. I am worried I will not get the dining experiences we want. Do I need to get up at midnight to schedule or am I nuts?Going Nov.

    Hi Stacie!

    There are only two really difficult reservations to get at the 180 day mark and that's really only if you are going during an extremely busy time at Walt Disney World or if you have your heart set on a specific day and a specific time.  Those two restaurants are breakfast at Cinderella's Royal Table in the Magic Kingdom and Le Cellier Steakhouse in Epcot.  If you are interested in either of those, then I wouldn't worry about it.  It can just wait until you normally wake up! 

    However, if you are going during an extremely busy time like Christmas week, then you definitely want to try making the reservation online before the 7 am phone line opens!  By the way, I think making reservations online is the way to go anyways; it's easier than making a reservation via the phone.

    Good luck and please write back with more questions!
