what TIME can you start making reservations?

I can start making reservations soon and I was wondering what time I would be allowed to start?
If I am allowed to start booking on November 10, does that mean 12:01 am, eastern time on the 10th? or UTC or some other random time?

Thanks in advance

Reservations for excursions/Palo/Remy/Spa/Nursery/Cabanas opens at midnight EASTERN on the day your booking window opens. If your booking window opens on Nov 10, that would be the midnight that the 9th becomes the 10th. You must log in after midnight. If you are already logged in and just hit "refresh" it won't work, the DCL site still thinks it's whatever day/time it was when you logged in.

For online checkin, that begins at 3:00 am on the day your window opens.

I've just had too many times when it didn't work, and at midnight or 3 am, there is no help available. It is really funny--if I go to bed and try again at 8 am, it always seems to be working.
