    HI, I booked our trip for 8/2016. I went to make a reservation at the Rainforest Cafe. It is only giving me a 4:30 or 9:30 option. They can't be completely booked for the other times already can they? Why can't I reserve?

    Greetings, Bonnie, welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, we thank you for your question.

    Disney's Advanced Dining Reservations begin as far out as 180-days in advance of your arrival and I understand how you feel not being able to secure that perfect dining time at your favorite restaurant. May I offer you to keep trying in the event of a cancellation in the system which will then open a spot for you.

    The Rainforest Cafe at Walt Disney World Resort has two locations: Disney Springs Marketplace and Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, so you may wish to try at both locations to increase your chances of securing the desired time. Both restaurants offer similar theming and menu options.

    You are just in time for Walt Disney World Resorts Awaken Summer offering new attractions, experiences, fireworks and shows, your timing couldn't be more perfect, Bonnie!

    Customize and control your vacation before and during your visit through My Disney Experience online and mobile app for Advanced Dining Reservations, selecting FastPass+ experiences, personalizing MagicBands and much more.

    We hope this information is helpful, Bonnie and would be pleased to assist you further with your vacation planning in the near future.

    Best Disney Wishes~
