    We are coming in June and wanted to eat at Chef Mickey's for dinner, but they are booked. Is there a chance if I keep checking daily online that something might open up? Is there a better way to figure out if there are any cancellations? Thanks!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel David!

    June will be here before you know it! Have you started your packing yet?

    Its always disappointing to try to get Advanced Dining Reservations (ADRs) at a dining location only to find that they are booked. Don't lose hope just yet. It may still be possible for you to still get in.  There really isn't a better way to try to get ADRs than to just keep trying. You can do that by:

    * Calling 407-WDW-DINE every few days as guests often cancel reservations once they get closer to their trips and firm up their plans.
    * Continuing to check for reservations online for Chef Mickey's.

    Be sure to continue to check even after you arrive on property.

    You may want to consider dining at breakfast instead of dinner which would give you more opportunities at getting reservations.

    One other option is to try walking up just before they start serving and ask. This option may not be great if you have little ones who may not understand if you can't get in and be truly disappointed. However, if you have an evening when you don't have somewhere else you have to be afterwards, give it a try. You never know what magical moment will come your way. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!

    Please feel free to visit us with any other questions.  We're hEAR to help!

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-)  Allison
