    We have a trip to WDW beginning 11/23. I'm trying to get dining reservations right now but I am travelling in Europe. With the time change, it should be 7:00 am in Orlando. The earliest date on the reservation calendar is 11/19. Help...?

    Hi Suzanne,

    Unlike the White Rabbit in Alice in Wonderland who runs around frantically exclaiming, “We’re late! We’re late...for a very important date,” you can breathe a sigh of relief because you’re actually early. 

    The dining reservation window opens 180 days in advance, so for an arrival date of November 23rd, you will be able to begin making reservations for all of your scrumptious and fun meals beginning Monday morning, May 27th. You simply have a few days left to dream about all of the deliciousness before actually being able to make your plans. Come Monday morning, you’ll be able to make reservations online as early as 5:45 a.m. Eastern time or by calling Disney Dining at (407) WDW-DINE or (407) 939-3463 beginning at 7:00 a.m. Eastern time.

    While you wait, I’d suggest making sure that your Disney Resort hotel reservation is linked to your My Disney Experience account so that you’ll be able to make your dining reservations for the entire length of your trip, up to 10 days, when your planning window opens. You may also feel free to look through all of the restaurant choices. You’ll find menus online with prices and can even read customer reviews. Have fun deciding between all of your amazing options!

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Suzanne, and please let us know if we can help with anything else as you’re planning your trip. I hope that you have a truly magical...and delicious...vacation!
