    Hi! I've been checking availability for dinner at Be Our Guest online 180 days out and it ALWAYS says no times available. I'm even checking right at 6:00. Does it really book up that fast? Is there a trick to it? Suggestions? Thanks so much!

    Hello Kelli!

    Be Our Guest Restaurant in Magic Kingdom Park is probably the most sought after dining reservation on property right now.  Unfortunately, there is no trick, and I even had some difficulty booking for my own upcoming trip.  With persistence, I had some luck.  First off, make sure you are calling at 7am EST.  I like to start dialing 5 minutes before so that I get a head start in the call queue.  Also, be flexible.  Keep trying for each day of your trip each time you call.  Phone often. Cancellations do happen from time to time as plans change.  Also, don't rule out lunch if you can't secure that dinner reservation.  In my opinion, Be Our Guest serves the best counter service lunch on property.  I don't want to spoil the surprise, but it's like nothing you've ever experienced, I guarantee!  Be sure to check out everything in New Fantasyland!  Consider stopping at Gaston's Tavern for a refreshing LeFou's Brew!

    Please let me know if I can help answer any other planning questions, Kelli.

    Until then, I wish you a magical vacation!
