    I have been on the phone waiting for Disney dining for 45 minutes Saturday, an hour yesterday, and currently I’m at 1:45 hours. Is there a better time in the day to reach Disney dining?

    Hello David! One of my favorite parts of planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation is selecting our Disney Dining experiences! From the resort hotels, to Disney Springs, to the Disney Parks the variety of dining options is endless!

    I recommend calling the Disney Dining line at times when others might be too busy to make calls. I have found that 4:00 to 6:00 PM sometimes has reduced wait times. Also, later in the evening, when people might be busy with evening routines, could have better results.

    While calling the Disney Dining line is one way to make an advanced dining reservation, I find the fastest and most convenient way to book a dining reservation is to use the My Disney Experience app! Once you’re on the app, tap the search icon (magnifying glass) at the bottom of the screen. Then enter the name of the restaurant in the search area. When the restaurant appears select the “Reserve Dining” option. Then follow the prompts to make your reservation! You can repeat this process for each restaurant you want to visit!

    Best wishes in securing your advanced dining reservations!
