    Hello, I was curious on how can I make dinner reservations on San angel inn or La Hacienda de San Angel for the 31 of December at night. All the restaurants are unavailable even though I put a reservation for 1 person.

    Welcome to planDisney, Jose! I'm so glad you found us!

    The holiday season is right around the corner and the Walt Disney World Resort is a very busy place this time of year. As such, it is not uncommon for advanced dining reservations for this time of year, especially New Year's Eve, to get snatched up very quickly. To confirm this, I just tried to book a reservation at these two restaurants on December 31, 2023, and there are no reservations available for that date. My recommendation is to continually check back as your vacation gets closer to see if more reservations become available as people change their plans and cancel their reservations. You just never know what might pop up!

    Both of the restaurants at which you are looking to dine are great choices. La Hacienda de San Angel has a wonderful location right on the World Showcase Lagoon. If you dine at just the right time, you may even luck out and get a glimpse of the nighttime spectacular. Just remember that views of the fireworks aren't guaranteed, but a fun and delicious dinner is highly likely regardless!

    And then there's San Angel Inn Restaurante inside the pyramid. No matter when you dine, you'll be eating near the base of the Mayan ruins from one of my favorite attractions at EPCOT, the Gran Fiesta Tour Starring the Three Caballeros. This pavilion is so lively and exciting as it's always nighttime and you are fully immersed in the atmosphere designed to look like a marketplace in Mexico. You can usually find some unique souvenirs here too!

    If you are unable to obtain reservations for either of these restaurants, just keep in mind that La Cantina de San Angel is a great quick-service dining option in EPCOT that has some tasty Mexican food that will likely satisfy anyone looking for the flavors of Mexico. You may also want to look into 4 Rivers Cantina Barbacoa Food Truck in Disney Springs, Maya Grill at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort, and Rosa Mexicano at the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel.

    Jose, I wish you the best in getting your desired reservations. If you have any other questions, please reach out directly to me and I'd be happy to find the answers for you!

    You are the magic,
