Family dining outside

    I cannot find ANY restaurants with any openings for two days straight. Am I doing something wrong? Is it because of COVID? Are fast passes no longer available?

    Hi Jenny,

    I'm so glad that you stopped by planDisney for some help with turning your Disney dreams into a reality! It sounds like that pesky Stitch may be causing you some technical troubles, and I'm so sorry that your planning experience has been less than magical. I'd be happy to help you get everything straightened out so you can get back to putting together the perfect itinerary for your visit!

    I just did a quick check for a party of four during the dates of your visit (although your party size may vary), and I do see some availability for every meal both days, so the good news is that you should be able to make some dining reservations ahead of time. I did experience a little hiccup myself on one of the dates where the system told me there was no availability for dinner, but when I chose a specific time, multiple options popped up. My advice to you if you're still having trouble would be to try making reservations online and through the My Disney Experience mobile app. If you've tried all these options and you're still having trouble, one other idea if you know a specific place you'd like to try is to go to that restaurant's page, click the calendar for the correct date first, then click the blue "Check Availability" button. Don't forget, too, that there are several table service restaurants that offer to go orders through mobile ordering as well as the ability to join a walk-up list when available! I'm sending some pixie dust that these tips help you find the perfect meals for your vacation!

    My recommendation? I'm currently seeing quite a bit of availability at Olivia's Cafe, which I consider to be a hidden gem. In fact, just thinking about their Southernmost Buttermilk Chicken has my mouth watering, and I'd definitely recommend dining there!

    As far as FastPass+ service goes, you are correct - as part of the phased reopening, that service is currently unavailable. With the parks at a limited capacity, though, the great news is that wait times are generally lower now. For the smallest crowds and shortest waits of the entire day, I'd encourage you to visit first thing in the morning or stay for the last hour or two of the day. 

    Thanks so much for visiting us at planDisney, Jenny, and please come see us again if we can help with anything else! I hope you have a truly magical vacation!
