    What time of the day can I start making my dining reservations and can I make them all for my length of stay at that time?

    Hello, Constance,

    Thank you for sending your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel about Disney Dining. Guests with reservations at a Disney Resort can begin making 10 days worth of reservations when they are 180 days out from their arrival date.  I often reference the independent website pscalculator.net to help me determine that exact date. You can begin making Online Dining Reservations at 6:00 AM (EST) and phone reservations (407)WDW-DINE at 7:00 AM (EST).  I'd encourage you to make reservations based on where you'd like to dine as the priority rather than working through your reservations in chronological order.  The more flexible you are the more likely you will be to secure a spot at a popular restaurant. 

    If you don't have a Disney Resort reservation, you can make dining reservations 180 days out for each individual day you'd like reservations.  For example, if I'd like to make reservations for 12/31/17, I'd need to make those on 7/4/17.  Then for reservations on the next day on 1/1/18, I'd need to make those reservations on 7/5/17 and so on. 

    Happy Disney Dining!  Please let us know if we can help with any further questions. -Kara
