    Hi! We are bringing our daughter to DW for the first time for her 5th birthday in October! The day of her birthday we really want to do breakfast with Cinderella and Be Our Guest, I know that reservations go fast but does anyone have any tips?

    Hi there Taryn,

    Thanks so much for your question!  Sounds like your little princess is in for a birthday celebration fit for royalty and you have chosen the PERFECT place to hold such a special celebration.  Your dining choices are absolutely perfect and I think your daughter will be thrilled with these selections!  That said, these two dining locations are also among the most popular at The Walt Disney World Resort so I am glad you are planning and preparing ahead of time.  It is critical that you figure out your plan for securing these reservations because the seating is limited and space is usually filled within hours of the reservation windows opening each day.

    Will you be staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel during your stay?  If so, guests can begin making dining reservations 180 days prior to their arrival and check in date.  Reservations may be made both online and by phone.  I would recommend using the online method because you can get an hour jump on the phone line reservations since the online system opens an hour earlier than the phone lines, at 6:00 am.

    1) Have your credit card ready
    2) Log into your account on the My Disney Experience website ahead of time
    3) Choose your first restaurant and have your browser open at that page
    4) Look for the blue box marked "Check Availability" and go ahead and have all of that info entered in
    5) As SOON as the clock strikes 6AM hit that "Find A Table" button to secure your spot.

    You could even have a friend or spouse on another computer or device to simultaneously reserve Be Our Guest.  Be Our Guest will be taking reservations for lunch as well which is a new offering.  The dining style and menu will still be quick service, but it's nice to have a reserved spot!

    Best Wishes,

    Amanda F.
