Disney World and Disneyland Dining Reservations to Be Unavailable for a Limited Time

When it comes to Disney World, there is a LOT to plan.

Cinderella Castle

First you have to pick the dates, then buy tickets, book park pass reservations, plan out and book your dining reservations, and study up on Genie+ if you plan to use it. If you are trying to make dining or activity reservations in the near future, you’re going to want to know about this update.

We opened the My Disney Experience app when we saw a pop-up notification. We’ve seen many pop ups before, usually for things like Mobile Order notices or ride closures, but this time it notified us about technical maintenance.

Casey’s Corner

The pop-up says “Some of our Digital experiences will be undergoing maintenance.” It goes on to say “Dine and activity reservations will be unavailable starting Thursday, November 3rd at 12:00AM.”

Disney did not mention how long the maintenance will last. When dining reservations open 60 days out, we’ve noticed they typically open around 5AM-6AM. As of now, it’s unclear if the site will be back up for guests to book dining reservations for January 2nd, 2023 (60 days out from November 3rd).

‘Ohana is another very popular dining spot

We also noticed this on the Disneyland app — the maintenance starts at the same time but says November 2nd at 9PM because of the time difference.

We’ll continue to monitor the situation and let you know when the dining and activity reservations are back and available to book again. If you want to book any dining reservations for dates already available, we suggest you grab those ASAP. Stay tuned to DFB for more updates.
