    We booked a year in advance with a Disney specialist for the Grand Floridian. We had our reservations ready for the 180 day window and are now being told we can't do Cinderella's Castle for dinner any time during our stay. How is that possible?

    Hello Ann and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. 
    I'm thrilled to know you have what's sure to be a practically perfect in every way stay at Disney's Grand Floridan Resort & Spa planned in your near future and of course I can just imagine how excited you must be! 
    When I'm planning my own trips to Walt Disney World Resort I always have a wish list of my families favourite Disney dining locations which I endeavour to fulfil and secure with Advanced Dining Reservations at 180 days out from my arrival.
    However because sometimes the restaurants we would really love to dine in are also very popular with other Guests it's sometimes just not possible to secure those all important Advanced Dining Reservations; no matter how hard I tried. 
    My top tip is to simply keep on trying, even right up to the day you wish to dine; after all you never just know when a little Disney magic is going to happen and you may just secure that elusive reservation at Cinderella's Royal Table
    Another idea may be to try other regal dining locations such as Princess Storybook Dining at the beautiful Akershus Royal Banquet Hall at Epcot or Disney's Perfectly Princess Tea at your hotel, Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. 
    Have a great Disney day.
