Disney World Dining Reservations Unavailable Even After Parks Reopen!

in Disney, Walt Disney World

dining reservations unavailable

Even though Walt Disney World Resort announced their phased reopening plans for the theme parks and resort hotels, Guests are still unable to make dining reservations for the parks’ scheduled reopening dates on the My Disney Experience App or on the official Disney World website.

These are the two normal channels for making advance dining reservations, or ADRs, for Disney World Guests.

But even when clicking on “Reserve Dining” on the Disney World app, guests can’t even view the list of all Disney restaurants that would typically display. While the Walt Disney World app offers the normal “Reserve Dining” option, users are redirected to the official WDW website when they click to make their Disney Parks restaurant reservations.

Once WDW Guests visit the website, however, table service restaurants are not showing up in any of the Disney resort’s four theme parks. Disney Springs dining establishments, such as The Boathouse and Chef Art Smith’s Homecomin’, are also displaying “No Times Available,” even though Disney Springs is currently open. Dining reservations are also currently unavailable for the Disney Resort hotel restaurants.

In-park table service restaurants are completely missing from the website at this time, although Guests can view dining experiences, such as the EPCOT Forever Dining Package and Circle of Flavors: Harambe at Night.

Disney has also posted a notice at the top of the Walt Disney World website that states “Dining Reservations Are Currently Unavailable.”

Even if you plan to visit Magic Kingdom or Disney’s Animal Kingdom on reopening day on July 11, or if you plan to visit EPCOT or Disney’s Hollywood Studios when those two parks reopen on July 15, you still can’t currently make any Disney World dining reservations. There is not additional information about when Disney World visitors will be able to reserve tables at restaurants in the parks. Disney also has not yet released more information about which, if any, restaurants will be unavailable to Guests once the theme parks reopen.

Since advance dining reservation choices are a major component of Disney vacation planning for many families, this could impact the overall Disney experience for travelers.

It is also worth noting that the lack of advance reservation options extends to Disney resort hotels, which will also begin reopening in a few weeks.

ITM will continue bringing you the latest news regarding the Disney dining plan and other Disney World dining reservation updates. We will share more updates as soon as Disney has released more information about when Guests can make dining reservations for Disney World restaurants in the near future.
