    My daughter will turn 3 on our next visit (9/25-9/29). She is determined to eat with Minnie Mouse for her birthday...but all the Minnie character dining opportunities seem to be filled for 9/29! Any suggestion for how to make this happen? Thanks bunches

    Hi Deanna!  Oh I know that is so frustrating, but here is the best advice I can offer you.  Be persistent.  Call dining everyday to see if they have had a cancellation at any of the places Minnie is located.  If you have no luck before you leave, check again when you arrive.  You just never know!  Also try dropping in your desired destination to see if there have been any cancellations.  Someone may not show up for a 9:30 at CM and you may be able to go right in and eat with Minnie.  I have been in your same situation.  One time I was successful and got the ADR my child wanted while we were there and then once I did not have the best of luck, but the key is to keep trying.
    I'll keep my fingers crossed and I hope she is able to dine with Minnie on your upcoming trip.
    Thanks for coming to the Mom's Panel, and I hope you have a great WDW vacation.
