    Hi, We just booked our trip to Disney for late Nov / early Dec - after the 180 days when people start making reservations. We'd like to do some character dining, but it seems to be all booked up. Anything we can do about this? Suggestions?

    Hello Cristina and thanks for asking the Disney Parks Moms Panel such a great question about your late November/early December trip to the magic of Walt Disney World Resort. 
    This particular time of yEAR when Fall turns into the Holidays at Walt Disney World Resort is possibly one of my most favourite times to visit and I just know you're going to love it too. 
    The first thing I always say to fellow Guests who are finding it tricky to secure Advanced Dining Reservations for their favourite Disney character dining restaurants is to never to give up trying because you never just know when a little Disney magic is going to happen and some dining times will open up. 
    Keep on checking back right up until the very last minute via My Disney Experience or by speaking to a helpful Cast Member by dialling the number for Dining Reservations contained within this Walt Disney World Phone Directory
    When you've arrived at Walt Disney World Resort another tip is to try walking up to your chosen restaurant's podium and asking if they have any openings that day; after all Guests do sometimes cancel even the most popular reservations at the last moment.  
    Wishing you pixie dusted luck in securing some magical character dining during your November/December trip to Walt Disney World Resort.  
    Have a great Disney day. 
    ~ Jane
