    Going to WDW! When the 180th day before my trip happens, what time of the day can I start making reservations? Does it start right at midnight or some time in the morning hours? Thank you for any help offered

    Hi Hannah,

    It sounds like you are already super excited for your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation...that's awesome! And if you are close to 180 days before your trip, when you can start making those all-important dining reservations, I am sure your excitement is only going to increase! 

    Hannah, the booking window for online Disney Dining Reservations opens at 6 a.m. Eastern starting 180 days in advance. Guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel also receive an added dusting of pixie dust, as they are able to book dining for their entire trip (up to 10 days) starting 180 days prior to their Resort check-in. If you require assistance by telephone, Disney Dining telephone reservations open each day at 7 a.m. Eastern by calling (407) WDW-DINE or (407) 939-3463. 

    To ensure you are all set and ready to go at 6 a.m. on the appointed day when your online dining reservation booking window opens, you will want to have your My Disney Experience account all set up and ready to go. Be sure to link your Disney Resort hotel reservations to your My Disney Experience account (if applicable). Then, on the appointed day, put on the coffee, sit back and have fun making your dining reservations for what is sure to be a magical trip!

    Hannah, I hope this information is helpful as you continue with your trip planning. Should you have any other questions, please send them our way. We are here to help!

    Happy Dining!
