    Trying to make on line dinner reservations 60 days out. Was told system opens at 6 am Pacific (8 am MN) Tried at 8 am Central time and 80% unavailable. What time do I have to log in to have a shot at Napa Rose, Dessert Party, or Fantasmic Dinner Party?

    Welcome to planDisney, Alec!

    I'm sorry that you've been having problems making dining reservations. I remember a similar thing happening to me earlier this year. Restaurant reservations usually open at 3:00 AM (PT), however, some restaurants add more tables later in the day, depending on availability. I found that trying every 15/30 minutes yielded some results. Suddenly, there would be tables available for a restaurant that had no availability an hour earlier. Therefore, keep trying, and hopefully, you'll be able to book the restaurants that you set your heart on.

    If you don't get any luck, try checking availability a day or two before your trip. Sometimes people cancel and availability suddenly pops up. On my most recent trip, I was able to make a last-minute reservation for the Fantasmic! On-the-Go Package at Hungry Bear Restaurant. We enjoyed a nice meal and (more importantly) got the best seats in the house for Fantasmic! It was one of the highlights of our trip.

    I'll be wishing upon a star that you have a delightful and delicious time, Alec!
