    At what time can I make dining reservations. I am in Arizona (MST). Two previous answers say 5:45am EST and 6:00am EST but that is obviously not correct as I just made a reservation at 5:40am EST.

    Welcome to planDisney, Robert!

    Disney dining is an important piece of any Walt Disney World Resort vacation puzzle. My family's must-dos in this category range from perusing the Disney Parks Blog's Foodie Guides for seasonal treats to enjoying a character dining experience, as reservation availability allows.  

    Advance reservations for dining can be made online 60 days in advance. Disney Resorts Collection hotel Guests can make reservations for their entire length of stay 60 days before check-in. According to the Dining Reservations - Frequently Asked Questions webpage, a new day of reservations opens at "approximately" 5:45 a.m. EST. I've set my alarm for many Disney dining days and can confirm that no two Disney dining mornings are the same. In my experience, new reservations most often populate around 6:00 a.m. though I've occasionally experienced an earlier reservation release time like the one you experienced. Mickey doesn't reveal all of his secrets so my best tip for making advance reservations for dining is to be logged into your My Disney Experience account by 5:45 a.m. EST. 

    Whether enjoying a steak at Steakhouse 71 or a libation at Oga's Cantina, Robert, I hope your Disney dining reservations take you on a culinary adventure!
