    My daughter turns 13 on our Disney trip. I am very nervous that I will not get the Be Our Guest restaurant reservation for her birthday dinner. I need it for June 15. Can anyone help with this?

    Amanda! I know exactly how you feel! I celebrated my 40th birthday at Be Our Guest Restaurant! I was so nervous about possibly not getting a reservation! Let me share how I was able to secure that popular reservation so that you can do the same for your daughter's 13th birthday dinner!

    There are two ways to secure a Disney Dining reservation. The first, and by far my preferred method, is to use the Walt Disney World Resort dining reservation webpage or your My Disney Experience account. The website will begin accepting reservations as early as 5:45AM (Eastern time) for select dining locations. It will accept reservations beginning at 6:00AM for all locations. The other method to secure reservations is to call (407)-939-3463. Phone reservations open at 7:00AM.

    Guests can make their dining reservations 60-days prior to their vacation arrival date! If you plan on arriving on June 13, 2021, you can begin making your advanced dining reservations on April 14, 2021! Set a reminder for yourself! A few other tips that will help you secure your reservation: 1) have your My Disney Experience account set up, 2) if you're staying at a Disney Resort Hotel have your resort reservation linked to your My Disney Experience account, 3) have your credit card sitting next to you, and 4) be flexible about the time of your reservation. If for some reason, you are unable to get a reservation, keep checking! Guests do cancel reservations and you might be able to secure a time slot!

    Amanda, I will be sending you lots of pixie dust on the morning of your 60-day mark! I hope your daughter has a magical 13th birthday while celebrating in Beast's Castle! Don't forget to mention this special celebration upon your arrival to the restaurant! Perhaps a little extra magic will come your way!
