    What time do advanced dining reservations open - is it 7 am ET like FastPass+?

    Greetings, Stephanie!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, and thanks for your wonderful question. I'm so excited you are eager to start booking dining reservations during your trip to the Walt Disney World Resort. I always have such a hard time deciding where we want to eat on our vacations, because there are SO many amazing options!

    If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, you are able to book dining reservations starting 180 days in advance of arrival for up to 10 days. This means 180 days before your check-in date you can book dining reservations for essentially your entire vacation. Reservations can be made online or on the My Disney Experience app at 5:45-6 AM EST or by calling (407) 939-3463 starting at 7 AM EST. I hope this helps!

    Note that some reservations may be even a little tricky to grab at 180 days in advance due to their popularity, so you may want to try and reserve these coveted reservations later on in your stay for a better chance at booking them. Some of the most popular dining experiences are Cinderella's Royal Table, Be Our Guest Restaurant, California Grill, 'Ohana, and Victoria & Albert's. Most of the time, though, I have had no problem booking our must-do reservations at 180 days in advance.

    Please return if you have any other questions, and have a Fantasmic day!
