    How do I book mickeys backyard barbecue do I have to call or can I book it through the app

    Hi Samantha! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    There are multiple ways to book not just Mickey's Backyard BBQ but all of your advanced dining reservations! First, you can absolutely book on the My Disney Experience Mobile App. My family actually plans to leave one night without an advanced reservation with the intention that we'll pick something from the app the day of. It's a really fun way to pass time while waiting in a giant line!

    When you first open the app, click your character icon. From the main option page click 'Reserve Dining.' From here you'll select your party size and then search for which date you'd like to dine. Pro tip - click the name of meal you're searching (example: Dinner) rather than a specific time to be able to see all of your open table options. From this list you can click on whatever tempts your appetite. Simply click on one of the open reservation times listed, or click the name of the restaurant for a quick summary of the dining experience, to see its menu, or to check any other reservation times that may be available. Once you click on a time you'll have one more confirmation box to check before that reservation is yours!

    You can also book dining reservations any time on a desk or laptop computer, or an internet version of your My Disney Experience profile on any other device. Just like the app you can view what's remaining for the rest of a specific day. And of course you can always call (407) WDW-Dine or (407) 939-3463 starting at 7 A.M EST where a friendly Cast Member would be more than happy to help you.

    We'll See You Real Soon, Samantha!
