    what time can I book meal reservations

    Hi there, Paula! Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question.

    Whenever I'm headed off to Walt Disney World Resort for my next vacation, there is always one thing I am most looking forward to - the FOOD! From out-of-this-world (literally) dining experiences like Space 220 Restaurant to five-star cuisine at restaurants like California Grill, there is something to satisfy every palate. You certainly will want to snag those coveted Advanced Dining Reservations to ensure you don't miss out on the food you have been craving. So, let’s talk about it!

    Advanced Dining Reservations can be made 60 days in advance, starting bright and early at 6:00 a.m. EST. Plus, If you're staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, you get the added benefit of being able to book for your entire stay (for up to 10 days) 60 days before your scheduled check-in. This gives you a nice jump start on securing some of those hard-to-snag reservations at Walt Disney World's most popular restaurants. How awesome is that?!

    When you’re ready to get started, I highly recommend using your My Disney Experience app to search for available reservations. It's the easiest way to get the most up-to-date availability in real-time. To start, simply log into your My Disney Experience app and click on the "+" in the middle of the navigation bar. From there, select "Check Dining Availability" and enter your party size and the date you are looking to dine. You can then browse through different meal times, view all available restaurants, and follow the prompts to secure your reservation. Pretty easy, right?

    Just thinking about all the incredible meals you'll enjoy on your upcoming vacation makes me feel a little rumbly in my tumbly, just like Winnie-the-Pooh! We planDisney foodies LOVE to talk about our favorite snacks and meals available throughout Walt Disney World, so visit again soon if you'd like to hear some of our recommendations!

    Bye for now!
