    Can't get adr online to Mickey's backyard bbq. We will be there May 31st. Could I call and get reso's? Is it worth it? My kids are 3.5 and 5.

    Hello, Suzanne!

    I would absolutely call Walt Disney World Dining (even on a daily basis, if you can) in order to get a reservation that you really would like to have, but haven't been able to secure on your own online. Very often, guests who've made dining reservations well in advance (up to 180 days of check-in) change their plans as the dates draw near. Those cancellations could be just the ticket to get you into Mickey's Backyard BBQ.  Call (407) WDW-DINE and speak to a Cast Member, who might also provide you with some helpful insight regarding this reservation as well.

    Should this still not pan out, consider trying a different Character Dining Experience, one that also has some of these same characters. In addition, you can sometimes have better luck when trying to get a late lunch reservation rather than a dinner reservation at many of the park and resort Table Service restaurants.

    Send me another question if you're still unable to secure that reservation for May 31st and would like information about other Character Dining options; I'd love to help!
