    When will CRT open up their dining reservations for September 4? I have a resort reservation checking in August 31, and have been trying everyday since 180 out to reserve a magical meal there. Thanks for any insight to the date I should start trying.


    So yes, you should already be able to make a reservation for Cinderella's Royal Table by now, since the window for September 4 reservations opened up on March 8th. 

    What is probably going on is something that happens occasionally for several restaurants at different times of the year. Due to some internal work at Disney (to which we are not privy) ranging from something as major as a closure to renovate to any of a variety of delays due to minor tweaks, they will freeze reservations for a time.

    For my trip last year we had the same kind of delay for one of our desired reservations. The dining reservation line cast members did not know why it was happening, or when it would end. You are probably in the same boat.

    There is only one thing you can do. Keep checking in. I know it is a bit annoying, but if you can make a point of calling every week and checking, like me last year you are likely to hit paydirt when they finally release the reservation blocks. We ended up getting our reservation, and I expect you will as well. Good Luck!

    Have a magical (and delicious) vacation!
