    What time (60 days out) of the day can one make on-line dining reservations? I know some (like Blue Bayou) go fast so want to be ready when the reservation window opens. Thank you!

    Hey Debra and welcome back to planDisney. I am so glad you stopped by because when making dining reservations we never want to be late like the White Rabbit.

    Advance dining reservations for Disneyland Resort usually open around 6:00 AM PST. Reservations may be made 60 days in advance for all Guests whether or not you are staying at a Disneyland Resort hotel.  Since there are a limited number of table service restaurants that means there is a limited number of reservations. Even if you are quick to log in on the Disneyland Resort website or the Disneyland Mobile App you may not be able to get the time you want. Never fear, more reservations usually become available within 60 days as Disney releases more and Guests change their minds on where they want to eat. If you are not able to get your reservation in advance then I recommend the following:

    • Check every day, first thing in the morning, around 6:00 AM PST online or on the Disneyland Mobile App
    • Be flexible and willing to eat at the restaurant on a different day. Disneyland Park, Disney California Adventure Park, and Downtown Disney are an easy walk from anywhere in Disneyland Resort.
    • Join the Mobile Dine Walk-Up Availability where Guests can dine in select locations without advance notice (lines may be long).
    So, Debra, set that alarm for 3:45 AM Hawai'i time to be ready to make your reservations. I hope you get every dining experience you want. Please feel free to write me back directly for more Disney vacation tips or any follow-up questions.

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories.
