At this time, only restaurants at the DVC properties that are initially open for booking as well as Fort Wilderness will be open. Not all restaurants will be open, and likely no luau or Hoop Dee Doo Review options. You MUST have a valid Disney Resort hotel reservation to make dining reservations.
Some Disney Springs restaurants are already open; those may be booked online and no hotel reservation needed for those of course.
Dining reservations for in park restaurants are not available yet, and we don\’t know when they will be open. Disney has said that moving forward and for the foreseeable future dining reservations will now be made 60 days out. Those with Disney resort hotel reservations can make dining for the duration of their trip at 60 days out from their check in date (up to 10 days total); guests without a hotel reservation will need to book one day at a time 60 days out. We do not have information on when those reservations will be available for anyone who is already within 60 days of their trip.
Once regular 60 day reservations are available to book, the online system via My Disney Experience or the My Disney Experience app can be used to book available dining locations.
Dining plans will not be added for the remainder of 2020; we have no word on if or when dining plans will resume.
Masks will be required for anyone ages 2 and up. Masks must be worn at all times except for while seated at your table, eating and drinking. (In other words, wear them inside the restaurant, to your table, and from your table to leave. Masks must also be donned if you visit the restroom or step outside during your meal.)
Disney also strongly recommends using a cashless option for payment–Magic Band or credit card or other contactless option.
One random note: In park dining reservations do NOT guarantee you entry into a park. Once available, you will still need to make advanced park reservations as well.
