    What time can I start making dining reservations on my designated 180 days out. Is it at midnight? Do you do it online or should I call?

    Hello, Karen,

    Thank you for sending your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  I always get so excited when I near the 180 day window to begin making our dining reservations since I know it means our trip is that much closer.  When you are 180 days out, you can begin making online reservations at 6:00 AM Eastern Standard/Daylight Time.  You can also call for reservations (407-WDW-DINE) at 7:00 AM Eastern Standard/Daylight Time. 

    If you are a Disney resort guest, you will be able to make 10 days worth of reservations at this time.  You will want to make sure your Resort Reservation is included in My Disney Experience beforehand.   Also, I'd encourage you to work through your reservations by priority rather than chronologically.  If you aren't a Disney resort guest, you can make your reservations day by day.  

    Happy Disney dining!  Please let us know if we can help with any further questions. -Kara
