As Walt Disney World finally “opens up the gates” on July 11, Guests have been anxious to make dining reservations for their upcoming trips. Previously, only Guests with cancelled reservations were able to make dining reservations, but now the reservations are open for all Guests! Here are all of the details.
Recently, Walt Disney World cancelled all dining and experience reservations for Guests with upcoming reservations, with the promise they would be given the first access to rebooking these reservations when Disney began accepting reservations again.
The window opened for Guests who had previous reservations cancelled to make reservations on June 30. Since then, Guests without previous reservations have been wondering when their booking window would open.
All Guests may now make dining reservations online up to 60 days in advance.
Dining In The Theme Parks
As a reminder, Guests making in park dining reservations at any of the four theme parks will need valid park admission and a Park Pass reservation for that park, as well as a dining reservation for table service restaurants. Dining reservations do not guarantee admission to the park.

Walt Disney World Resort Hotel Dining
If you’d like to dine in a hotel restaurant, a confirmed dining reservation is required unless you are staying overnight in the hotel. Reservations are highly recommended for Guests staying overnight as well.
