    We booked a last minute trip for February and I'm not able to get into any restaurants we'd like to try. What are my options as far as be able to eat at some of those restaurants? Thanks!

    Hey there, Ashley!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Your Walt Disney World vacation will be here before you know it. How exciting!

    I'm so sorry to hEAR you're having difficulty in securing dining reservations to the Table-Service restaurants you are hoping to experience. Unfortunately, some of the more popular dining locations can fill up several months in advance. My daughter and I took a last-minute trip just last month and encountered the same difficulty.  I'm happy to report that I was able to find availability for our very favorite restaurant on the evening prior to our specific date of interest. In fact, I found we could book dining reservations to many of our "must do" Table-Service restaurants one or two days in advance. My recommendation is to keep checking. You never know when someone may change their plans and need to make modifications to their existing dining reservations or cancel in order to prevent being charged the cancellation fee.

    If you haven't done so already, be sure to download the My Disney Experience mobile app to manage your vacation plans, check attraction wait times, and book dining reservations while on the go.

    I hope this information is helpful, Ashley. Let us know if you have any new questions or would like dining recommendations. We would love to assist you further in planning a magical trip!

    Bon Appétit,
