    We have a trip planned for October 2019. I am supposed to make dining reservations starting April 7 but so far I cannot get the dining calendars to open for October. When does October open so I can view the times available?

    Hi Kate, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Your big dining reservation day is TOMORROW! How amazing is that? 

    I just checked the online availability and my calendar, right now, is open until October 3, so I guess we are on the right track for you to make your amazing reservations tomorrow with no worries.

    I always like to check the daily calendar for each Theme Park before making my reservations so I can take advantage of Special Events or Extra Magic Hours within my plans. 

    Magical Tip: You can make reservations and cancel them later considering the cancellation policies. You may use that strategy to your advantage by booking the restaurants you absolutely have to try in two dates to make sure that you can fit them into your plans once all other reservations and FastPass+ arrangements are in place. I did this for my reservations for an early breakfast at Be Our Guest Restaurant at Magic Kingdom Park and for dinner at the Storybook Dining at Artist Point at Disney's Wilderness Lodge. How does that sound?

    I hope we can help you much more before your amazing October vacation is here, Kate, so please, come back to us if you have any further doubts.

    May the magic be with you,
