    What time do dining reservations open

    Hi Jules,

    Mmm...just thinking about some of the delicious dining options at The Most Magical Place on Earth has my mouth watering! With more than 100 table-service restaurants, you'll find cuisines to please any palate and lots of fun places to enjoy!

    While this dining FAQ page mentions that some reservations become available to book as early as 5:45 AM, I've always found that 6:00 AM seems to be when most places become available. Now with that said, I still start trying at 5:45 AM. I'm not normally a morning person, but on Disney dining days, I hop out of bed excited to see my itinerary start to come together! I would encourage you to have your account pulled up on both Disney's website and the My Disney Experience app in case that pesky Stitch tries to wreak any havoc with one of them. Of course, did you know that if you're staying in the magic with Disney Resorts Collection, you'll be able to make reservations for the entire length of your stay, up to 10 days, at that 60-day point? If that applies to you, I'd encourage you to start by making the most popular reservations first rather than go in order of your days. The later into your trip you can search, the more flexibility and availability you'll find.

    I'm sending pixie dust that you find the perfect dining reservations for your trip, but if you don't happen to see something you were hoping to enjoy, please don't give up! Guests' plans change all the time, and it's certainly possible that something will open up, especially the day or two beforehand as Guests are making any last-minute cancelations to avoid a no-show charge. Of course, with the walk-up list and multiple table-service restaurants offering to-go meals through the mobile ordering service, scrumptious bites and beverages are always just a click away...no reservations required!

    Thanks so much for visiting us at planDisney, Jules, and please feel free to come back and see us with any other questions you may have. I hope you have a truly magical...and delicious...vacation!
