    If Story book Character dining comes back on Dec 2nd for reservations, does it start at 6am? Also to make a reservation you do not need a park ticket correct? Have a magical day, always wanted to say that. Happy Holidays

    Hi Michael,

    Welcome back to planDisney! We love when Guests come back to see us again, so thanks for bringing us another great question and for sharing kind magical-day wishes! You've got that kind of Disney spirit that adds a bit of pixie dust to those around you and makes the holidays even merrier!

    Yes, dining reservations become available early in the morning. While most reservations open up around 6:00 AM, some become available as early as 5:45 AM. I always figure that if I'm waking up early anyway, what's another few minutes? I hope you were able to find a reservation for Story Book Dining at Artist Point with Snow White when they became available on December 2nd for the December 16th reopening. Between the gorgeous setting, fun interaction with beloved characters, and scrumptious (and perfectly themed!) bites and beverages, you're going to love it! Of course, I never pass up the opportunity to visit Disney's Wilderness Lodge while it's all decked out in its Christmas finest. It's one of my favorite Disney Resort hotels to visit during the holiday season!

    If you weren't able to find a reservation, though, please don't give up. Keep checking back as Guests' plans change all the time. You may be able to find an opening through the walk-up list, too! You're correct, too, that since this restaurant is located at a Disney Resort hotel and not a theme park, no tickets or Disney Park Pass reservations will be required to enjoy it.

    Thanks again for bringing your question to us here at planDisney, Michael. I hope you have a truly magical...and delicious...Walt Disney World Resort vacation this holiday season!
