UPDATE: Dining reservations are now available again both online and in the My Disney Experience app. Disney announced that the reservations were made available in error. New reservations made during the glitch will be canceled to ensure social distancing. Learn more here.
We’ve noticed something pretty strange about the Disney World dining reservations this morning.
With the reopening of the Disney World resort hotels and theme parks, there were some changes to dining — particularly with limited capacities. Now, several months later, could something be changing?
This morning, we had several readers reported that there was suddenly wide-open availability for dining locations they had been unable to book up to this point. Even we were able to snag some hard-to-get reservations this morning like Chef Mickey’s and Hollywood & Vine!
Then, as the morning went on, reservations became completely unavailable all of a sudden! Despite the Disney site still noting that dining reservations are available online, we’ve been seeing this error message on every dining-related page.
When we tried to check reservations on the My Disney Experience app, we saw the same “Reservations are currently unavailable” pop-up that was used during the closures.
Of course, we kept trying. We were able to get the pop-up to close and to select the number of people and the date and time before we were shown another error message. This one notes that access to the reservation servers is unavailable.
We’re no longer getting the Lady and the Tramp error on the site, but we were still unable to make reservations at time of writing. Despite showing availability, we were met with another message when we tried to book on the Disney site.
We’re not too sure about what’s going on with the dining reservations this morning, but stay tuned to DFB as we learn more. And if you’re having a similar experience, please let us know.
