    Is there anyway to get on a wait list for Blue Bayou reservations? I'm also having a hard time booking character dining--why is it not letting me book a reservation?

    Howdy Lindsey!

    Welcome to planDisney!  When visiting the Disneyland Resort, enjoying dining experiences always adds special memories to your vacation!  Thank you for sharing your question with us!

    Dining at the Blue Bayou Restaurant sounds scrump-dilly-icious!  I love all the menu options!  As the phased re-opening continues and theme park capacity is limited, the dining experiences are limited.  At this time, the Disneyland Resort may look a bit different.  It may be challenging to find advanced dining reservations for many table-service restaurants.  I recommend checking dining availability daily and throughout the day!  I have struggled to find dining reservations, checked at different times, and scored some of the best dining options due to cancellations and capacity changes.  Since your vacation is just over a month away, I recommend checking for dining availability daily and re-checking the day you visit the theme parks!  With all the changes, you never know what you may find!

    To stay informed of all restaurants scheduled to re-open, new dining options, new attractions, and so much more, check the Disney Parks Blog!  As the phased re-opening continues, the website “Returning to a Land of Magic” will be updated to inform guests about all safety measures and any changes!  I recommend checking both of the websites leading up to your vacation!

    Your visit to “The Happiest Place on Earth” is “Just Around the Riverbend!”  If you have any more planning questions, please come back to planDisney!  We are always here to help you with all your planning questions, Lindsey!

    See Ya Real Soon,
