    Just booked our trip 10/17-10/22....We wanted to take our 3 year old to was Chef Mickey's....looks like its booked solid already, do reservations ever open up? I am now worried about our options

    Hi Philip!

    YES! Be persistent and continue to check for those reservations! As people firm up plans for their vacations, they will often modify or cancel Advance Dining Reservations as vacation time draws near. Be sure to check for less popular times: A late breakfast or a very early dinner might just be open when popular dining times are booked fully.

    I prefer to check a few times per day via the online dining reservation system. In fact, before a recent trip, I was able to secure a reservation for a very popular restaurant just a week before we visited! This was after weeks and weeks of trying!

    If all else fails, it never hurts to stop by the restaurant and ask when you are at Walt Disney World! You never know, and maybe some Pixie Dust will be sprinkled over you!!

    Have a great trip!
