    I am booking a vacation for my family for Nov 2015. I did not realize how quickly the dining reservations fill up and I am concerned. I have "reservations" but they may not be what I want... Any suggestions?

    Hi there Shannon!

    How exciting to be planning a Walt Disney World vacation for your family!  Unfortunately, many of the most popular Table-Service restaurants at the Walt Disney World Resort do fill up very quickly.  I can completely understand your concern as I have also encountered some difficulty in finding availability at a few of my family's "can't miss" dining locations for our November trip. That being said, I have been checking back several times a day and have actually found availability at two of the four Table-Service restaurants that I was hoping to experience. For this particular vacation, I have discovered that it has been much easier to call Disney Dining at (407) WDW-DINE or (407) 939-3463 to book my Advanced Dining Reservations rather than booking online. 

    My recommendation is to keep checking back periodically. You never know when other Guests may change their travel plans and need to cancel an Advanced Dining Reservation. If you don't find something in the next few days, I would suggest that you continue to try periodically in the weeks and days leading up to your trip. 

    I hope this information is helpful and that you are able to secure the Advanced Dining Reservations on your wish list. Please don't hesitate to stop by again with any additional questions that you may have. Best wishes for a magical trip, Shannon!

    Bon Appétit,
