    Hi! When making either dining reservations or Fast Pass reservations, when the 180 day or the 60 day window comes, can you make the reservations the moment the clocks strikes midnight, or do you have to wait until the next morning? Thanks - Glenn.

    Hi, there!

     Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Glenn. Thanks so much for sending me this great question!

     I'm thrilled to hear you're planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation. I think planning is half the fun! The days my "windows" open up to book my family's dining reservations and make our FastPass+ selections are practically holidays in my house. I just love piecing together our vacation itinerary! 

     180-days prior to your arrival, you can begin making dining reservations for the length of your stay. The Dining Reservation Center opens at 7:00 AM (EST) and can be reached by calling (407) WDW-DINE or (407) 939-3463. I prefer to make our dining reservations online because reservation availability for most restaurants begins at 6:00 AM (EST). The day my dining reservation window opens up, I like to sit down with a cup of coffee in my favorite Disney mug and a list of the restaurants we hope to visit. I start refreshing the restaurant webpages around 5:45 AM because every once in a while, a bit of pixie-dust will allow me to make a reservation or two a little extra early!

     You can begin selecting your FastPass+ experiences for the entire length of your stay starting at 7:00 AM (EST) 60-days prior to your arrival. It's just one of the many benefits of staying at a Disney Resort hotel! While you're planning, keep in mind that three of the theme parks have a tiered FastPass+ system

     Please let me know if you have any other questions, Glenn. I'd love to help you plan a magical visit!
