    What time can I start making my fast pass+ and Dining reservations. Does the service open up at 12:00am on your designated days?

    Hello, Seth! Thanks so much for your question. You can start making Advance Dining Reservations 180 days in advance of your visit for the length of your stay. The phone line opens up at 7 a.m. EST and you can start scheduling your Advanced Dining Reservations online at 6 a.m EST on the 180 day mark. I usually wait until 7 a.m. and call (407) 939-1947 so that I get all of my reservations done at the same time and ask any questions that I have while I have a Cast Member on the phone. If you are a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel guest you will be able to schedule your FastPass+ reservations 60 days in advance of your trip, but if you are not staying on property you can start scheduling them 30 days in advance. Usually for the FastPass+ reservations, you can start planning those after midnight on your 60 or 30 day mark as long as all of the parks are closed for the day. For example, last May I stayed up until after 1 a.m. to schedule my FastPass+ selections because the Magic Kingdom was open for Extra Magic Hours that day from midnight to 1 a.m. To be able to schedule FastPass+ selections all of the parks must have closed for the day.

    I hope this helps, and if you need anything else, please let us know. Happy planning, and have a magical Walt Disney World vacation.
