    It’s after midnight and my account shows I’m within the 60 day mark of my visit which begins June 26. The calendar reservation is only showing dates up to June 25th. Do I need to wait until 6:00 am Central Time to start reserving? Thanks!

    Royal greetings, Cora!

    Welcome to planDisney. We're delighted you've dropped by with a fantastic Walt Disney World Resort vacation planning question! You're just a short couple of months away from your enchanting escape to The Most Magical Place on Earth. The clock has struck midnight on your 60-day dining reservation window - an important milestone in the Walt Disney World Resort vacation planning process! Now, let's discuss how to secure some dazzling dining experiences before anyone turns into a pumpkin...

    Cora, Guests can begin making dining reservations at approximately 6:00 a.m. Eastern Time 60 days in advance. Additionally, at this time, Guests with reservations at an eligible Disney Resort hotel can start securing reservations at that time for their length of stay, up to 10 nights. I encourage you to hop back onto the Walt Disney World Resort website now that it's past 6:00 a.m., as you'll likely find that you can check availability for your length-of-stay at this time. Bibbidi-bobbidi-boo! If you prefer, you can also use the My Disney Experience mobile app to book your dining reservations. The booking process is very similar between the two platforms, and has been recently enhanced to allow Guests to search over a range of dates!

    If you're still not able to see availability for your entire trip, be sure that you've linked your Disney Resort hotel reservation to your My Disney Experience account. If you're only able to view availability on the first day of your trip, it's possible that your reservation hasn't yet been linked. In this case, the system won't know that you should have access to book for your length of stay. Refer to these instructions to link a Resort hotel reservation to your account, if needed.

    If you feel like you're a bit late to the ball, don't worry, Cora. You've still only just entered your 60-day window! For those extremely popular dining experiences that always book up 60 days in advance, I recommend trying to schedule those for days later on into your visit. For example, if you were really hoping to try Topolino's Terrace - Flavors of the Riviera during your upcoming visit and there are no reservations remaining on the first day of your stay, try checking for availability on the fourth day of your trip. This method usually allows me to snag all of the popular dining experiences on my "must-do" list for each vacation!

    Cora, I do hope you've found this information helpful. With a flick of my Fairy Godmother wand, I'm sending you a dash of pixie dust to ensure you can secure all of the dining experiences you were hoping for! If you have any additional questions ahead of your visit, you're always welcome to return to us here at planDisney. We're here to help you make the most of your time at The Most Magical Place on Earth!

    Warm wishes,
