    When does online access to dining reservations open -my 180 days starts tomorrow. Also I need to change hotels on 11/23 so I have a different dining plan confirmation number. Will I still be able to book dining reservations for that plan tomorrow?

    Hi Kathleen, 

    If you are anything like me, one of the most important aspects of planning a trip to Walt Disney World Resort is the food. The hardest part for me is trying to narrow down our list of favorite restaurants as there are so many Disney dining experiences we enjoy. It sounds like you have already made these tough decisions and are now just looking for advice on when your dining reservation window will open. Hopefully this will be the easy part!

    Dining reservations can be made 180 days in advance, with online Disney World Dining Reservations being available for booking starting at 6 a.m. Eastern. Telephone dining reservations can be made starting at 7 a.m. Eastern by calling (407) WDW-DINE or (407) 939-3463.   

    Kathleen, as you will be staying in a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, you will be able to make dining reservations for your entire stay (up to 10 days) starting 180 days prior to your Resort check-in date. To ensure that you are all set and ready to go when your booking window opens, you will need to link your Disney Resort hotel reservation to your My Disney Experience account.

    As you will be staying at two different Disney Resort hotels during your stay, you will only be able to make dining reservations up until the check-out day on your first reservation. Then, when you reach 180 days prior to your second check-in date, you will then be able to book reservations for the remainder of your stay.

    Wishing you the best of luck tomorrow in making your Disney Dining reservations, Kathleen, and Bon Appétit!
