    I am bringing my son and granddaughter to Disney for her 4th birthday. I would like to plan a character meal for her. I have tried making reservations but it seems like everything is full. Any suggestions?

    Hi Lisa!

    Character Dining is among the most popular dining in all of Walt Disney World so they book up quickly. If you are having trouble getting Advanced Dining Reservations, though, do not give up. Since Guest's plans are always changing, reservations that are not available today might be available tomorrow. My advice would be to keep checking back, either online or by calling (407) 939-5277.

    I'm so excited for your trip to Walt Disney World to celebrate your granddaughter's 4th birthday. Be sure to stop by Guest Services when you first get to the Park to request a Personalized Birthday Celebration Button and have her wear it all day. It is Disney's way of announcing to everyone she sees that it is her special day!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Please come back if there's anything else we can do to help with your planning.

    Have a magical day!
