WDW Dining Reservations Reopen for Many

WDW Dining News

Guests who had Advance Dining Reservations cancelled due to the COVID-19 schedule adjustments can now make new plans. 


As Walt Disney World made parparations to reopen dozens of restaurants in its hotels and theme parks, all current Advance Dining Reservations were cancelled. Reduced restaurant capacity and the need for theme park admission reservations played a role in the decision to dismiss all exiting dining commitments. 

Disney promised to give these guests first opportunity to book new dining times, and has delivered on that promise. Beginning June 30, Anyone who had a dining reservation cancelled by Disney can begin making reservations up to 60 days in advance. 

Reservations are available online via the MyDisneyExperience.com website. Virtual waiting room technology is being applied to manage traffic and keep the system from being overwhelmed. 

Disney has not said when ADRs will open for those who did not previously have dining reservations. Guests staying at Disney Vacation Club resorts in the weeks prior to the theme parks' July 11 reopening were able to book eligible locations at the hotels and Disney Springs beginning on June 18. 

Note that many familiar restaurants have not announced reopening dates and are ineligible for ADRs at this time. Among them are Nine Dragons and Chefs de France at EPCOT, California Grill, Chef Mickey's, 1900 Park Fare, Flying Fish and many more.
