    We are coming to Disney the week of November 14-21. I have been trying to schedule Character Dining but everything is booked for the entire week. Any tips for getting reservations?

    Hi Holly!

    The best tip I have for getting dining reservations when there aren't any available is to keep trying!  You never know when someone is going to cancel a reservation, so check every day.  I am local, so we often visit Walt Disney World on short notice.  I have been able to get prime dining reservations for the most popular restaurants during the week prior to visiting and often the day or two before!  Just last week was able to get a Chef Mickey's reservation the night before, so all hope is not lost.  Since there is a 24 hour cancellation policy, you'll see lots of reservations pop up really close to your date as guests are finalizing their plans.  Don't be discouraged, keep trying.
