    Can't get a reservation for character dining to save my life! I have a 6 year old and this is his first trip. I am going to be so disappointed if I can't do this for him. Any suggestions?

    Hi Dawn,

    Best advice is keep trying!! If you can check back daily or call in 407 WDW DINE when you can to see if there are any cancellations.  Be flexible with your time as well.  You might not want dinner at 8pm but if it is available then take it!  You can always try walking up to your restaurant of choice and seeing if there are any no shows or cancellations.

    I have been there many times and have luckily got a reservation but you need to be flexible with your times.  Check all of the options, you might not get your first character dining choice then try your next option.  

    Character dining is my all time favourite must do, it really is an experience that your son will remember for a long time---so don't give up!!

    Wishing you lots of luck and pixie dust!!
