    Hi! My daughter (3y/o) and I are coming for the first time next mth. I cant find any reservations for any character dining or princess experiences. Im not really sure if its all unavailable or just booked out already? Please help

    Hi Haili,

    Welcome to planDisney!

    We are excited to soon welcome your princess to the Walt Disney World Resort! Well, this is a dilemma. I will say that the dates of your visit are quite busy. We apparently have royalty arriving from far and wide. I just checked advanced dining reservations for your arrival date and character dining experiences are unavailable. When you search for dining availability, be sure to filter by Dining Experience and click on Character Dining.

    Although character dining has been modified, there are still some dining locations open. Our absolute favorite is Topolino's Terrace - Flavors of the Riviera for breakfast. The music and characters are delightful! On our last visit, we also dined at Chef Mickey's and Cinderella's Royal Table. Dining in Cinderella Castle is always a must-do for us, and we were thrilled to see Cinderella come out to say a few words to Guests while we dined. Even though her princess friends were not able to greet Guests, it was lovely to see her!

    As you consider possibilities, check availability at Hollywood & Vine and Garden Grill Restaurant. We adore Hollywood & Vine for breakfast, and I suspect your daughter might happily recognize a few of the characters! My advice would be to keep checking availability daily since cancellations do happen. Also keep your eye on the dining updates and keep in mind that you can use Mobile Dine Check-in, Mobile Dine Walk-up Availability, and Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering while in the parks and resorts.

    Haili, stay hopeful! You have some possibilities. In the meantime, do be sure that your princess has her royal attire. I have it on good authority that Mickey and Minnie Mouse and the gang are ready to welcome her to a world of magic!

    Magic and memories,
