    Hello! We have booked our first vacation and have found it extremely difficult to get any of the dinner reservations at Cinderella's Royal Table. Do you have any suggestions other than looking for cancellation?

    Hi Claudia!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, and thanks for stopping by with this question about Advance Dining Reservations.

    Reservations at Cinderella's Royal Table fill up very quickly. Your best bet is to continue to check for a cancellation. I will share two strategies that have worked for me in the past. First, in addition to checking online daily, I've had some luck when calling Disney Dining Reservations. The Cast Members have the ability to search multiple days at a time. Second, I have been most successful in finding a cancellation a few days before our trip. Cinderella's Royal Table applies a cancellation fee, so Guests tend to finalize their plans as their vacation approaches. You might have the best chance the week prior to your vacation.

    As a backup, I suggest making a reservation at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall in Epcot, where you can also dine with Disney Princesses. My three daughters love Akershus Royal Banquet Hall and rank it on par with Cinderella's Royal Table!

    I hope this helps with your planning, Claudia. Please stop back and let us know if you have any additional questions.

    Wishing you many magical memories!
