You’re likely already familiar with using the My Disney Experience website or app to book your dining reservations throughout Walt Disney World parks, resorts, and Disney Springs. But did you know that some of these restaurants also offer reservations through OpenTable.com? We’ve got all the details!
Want to try booking a dining reservation through OpenTable.com? We’ve put together a list of all participating restaurants on property. While you won’t find any in-park dining on the list, there are plenty of Resort and Disney Springs restaurants available via the site.
What you need to know: My Disney Experience requires a credit card guarantee when booking an Advance Dining Reservation. If you don’t cancel by 11:59 PM the day before and don’t show up for your reservation, your credit card is charged a no-show fee of $10 per person.
But here’s a tip: If you book through OpenTable.com, you aren’t charged a no-show fee. So, this could potentially save you some money if you anticipate that you might not be able to make it (for instance, if you’re concerned about your child’s temperament within a busy schedule). But if you don’t show for three or more reservations, your email address will be blocked from OpenTable.com and you won’t be able to create further dining reservations using that address.
Below you’ll find the list of Walt Disney World restaurants which currently accept reservations via OpenTable.com. See if your favorite is on the list!
