    What time can I make dining reservations if I do them online?

    Hi Diane!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thanks so much for directing your question to me!

    Being able to dine around the "World" is one of my very favorite parts of visiting the Walt Disney World Resort. Guests may begin booking dining reservations 180 days in advance by calling (407) WDW-DINE or (407) 939-3463, by going online, or via My Disney Experience mobile app. If you will be staying at a Disney Resort hotel, you can make dining reservations 180 days in advance of your arrival date for your entire length of stay (up to 10 days). Before logging on to book dining reservations, be sure your resort reservation is linked in My Disney Experience.

    I get so excited in the days leading up to my 180-day booking window. Historically, Guests have been able to start making dining reservations online beginning at 6:00 a.m. EST. According to the official Disney website, Guests may begin making dining reservations online for select Walt Disney World restaurants at approximately 5:45 a.m. EST. I just called Disney Dining to verify my information for you. The friendly Cast Member confirmed that online reservations open at 6:00 a.m. EST.  My recommendation is to be online by 5:45 a.m. so you are ready to make your dining reservations just in case the system allows you to book a few minutes early.

    I hope this information has been helpful to you, Diane. If you have any new questions or would like dining recommendations, please stop by again. I would love to assist you further in planning a magical trip!

    Bon Appétit,
