    We booked our WDW trip at the last minute (30 days out) and can't seem to find Character Dining Reservations available. What do I do. It is our first trip and I really would like to let my boys ( 6/4) experience this. HELP! We are on the Disney Dining.

    Oh Kindle, I feel for you! It's so exciting to have booked a last minute vacation, yet frustrating that you can't get the dining reservations you want. Don't give up. Did you consider dining at less popular times? Sometimes there are openings during off-peak hours such as mid afternoon or later in the evening. I would also recommend calling (407) WDW-DINE (939-3463) regularly in hopes of a cancellation.

    Once you arrive, check at the concierge desk at your resort, and they'll do their best to help you. You can also call each morning and check. Another option is showing up at the restaurant in hopes of a cancellation. This might be easier to do at a theme park, where you can check back throughout the day.

    Hoping that a little pixie dust is all you need!
