    What time does the dining reservation open? I know it it opens 60 days in advance but the time is not clear. Thanks!

    Hi, Lucienne!  Thanks for bringing your question to planDisney!

    One of my favorite parts of a Walt Disney World Resort vacation is all of the amazing dining options.  Whether it's fine dining, character meals, or a themed restaurant experience, there is something to appeal to everyone's tastes. When it comes to table service restaurants at Walt Disney World Resort, dining reservations are highly recommended and can be made 60 days in advance, starting at 6:00 a.m. EST.

    If you have your heart set on some of the most popular Walt Disney World Resort restaurants, I have a few tips that may help you snag those sought-after dining reservations.  If you're staying at a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel, you'll be able to make dining reservations for the entire length of your stay (up to 10 days) 60 days prior to your check-in date.  So if you're hoping for a hard-to-find dining reservation, try booking it toward the end of your trip to get a bit of a head start. 

    If you don't see the reservation you're looking for, keep checking as you get closer to your trip.  Dining reservations can be canceled or modified without penalty up to two hours before the reservation time.  Guests change their plans all the time, so you never know when an amazing reservation will pop up at the last minute.

    Lucienne, I hope that you're able to book all of your desired dining reservations.  If we can help you with any other questions, feel free to visit planDisney again at any time.  Have a magical day!
