Question Make online at midnight or call in reservations?

Hi all. I can make my dining reservations on Thursday. (I am staying at Disney, so I can make them for our week stay.) Can I stay up late Wed. night & make them online at midnight? Or is it better to call first thing in the am?

I appreciate any advice, Marina

The system will roll over at 6AM EST, so staying up to midnight won't help any.

Doing them online does mean that you get 1hr head start, which is good for those particularly hard to get reservations. It's very easy to do them online as well, simply sign in to the WDW site, click "Where to eat?" in the top. To activate the "+10", simply choose a date that's more than 180 days away and search.

Online = 6AM EST
Call In = 7AM EST

I would get up and try to do them online. If you have any issues, then call when the lines open.

Thanks for the heads up.
It's officially my 180 day mark but it's only 12am here in CA. I'll just have to wait until 3am. I'm a night owl, so no biggie.
