    Hello: I read that online dining reservations begin at 6 AM EST. However, I was just told that it opens at 5 AM EST. Is this a new? I live in IA (CST), and will need to get up an hour before, so I just want to make sure I am planning correctly.

    Hello Julie,

    Put your coffee pot on a timer and have it ready to go at 5:00 a.m Central time.  Disney Dining Cast Members confirmed that the dining reservation window opens at 6:00 a.m. Eastern time for online reservations and 7:00 a.m. Eastern time for phone reservations.  Once you have coffee in hand, use My Disney Experience, either on your mobile device or on your computer, to start typing away for your most wanted reservations.  I would start with the most coveted spots such as Be Our Guest Restaurant and Cinderella's Royal Table, and then move on to your other choices.  

    Wishing you speedy fingers and pixie dust for your reservations.  Have a magical trip!

Walt Disney captured my heart as a little girl and has not let go since. As a parent and grandparent, I have been to the Walt Disney World Resort with children of all ages, and also as empty nesters. I would like to share my years of experience so that you are able to start your own tradition of Walt Disney World memories, just as I have. Learn More About Leanne
