The new reservations window opens daily at approximately 6:00 a.m. ET, according to the official Walt Disney World website.
Additionally, Christmas Day dining reservations will formally open on October 26, while New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day dining reservations will open on November 1 and 2, respectively.
