Shake a leg, folks! This is the information many of you have been waiting for. Disney World has opened the reservation lines for a limited number of Resort Dining Reservations.
Beginning today, June 18, guests staying at Disney resort hotels from June 22 through July 10 may begin making dining reservations for select resort hotel restaurants and for restaurants at Disney Springs (many Disney Springs locations have already opened.) Theme park restaurant reservations are not included in this initial wave. Theme parks will not be open until after July 11 for Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom, and July 15 for Epcot and Hollywood Studios.
Reservations cannot be made online for the resort hotel restaurants. Guests with a valid resort hotel reservation must call the Disney Reservation Center at (407) 824-1391 to check availability and make dining reservations. Disney Vacation Club Members need to call Member Services at (800) 800-9800 to make their dining arrangements. However, reservations for some Disney Springs locations can be made online at https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/dining/disney-springs/#/reservations-accepted/. Several restaurants at Disney Springs are also available through Open Table.
Additional reservation dates will be released at a later time, and online booking for reservations for non-Disney Springs locations will re-open at a later date as well.
