    It is our daughter's 28th birthday on June 28, 2021! We are so excited to be at Disneyworld to celebrate but we cannot get a dinner reservation ANYWHERE. There are 6 of us and we hoped to dine at the Coral Seas. Suggestions????

    Hello William! Thanks for coming to planDisney! I’m sorry to hear that you haven’t had much success booking your Disney Dining reservations. I’m happy to provide some help!

    Tip #1 is...don’t give up! Reservations become available at the strangest times! People cancel reservations, so you really need to keep searching! I have searched at all hours of the day (and night) and have scored some highly sought-after reservations!

    My next tip is to be flexible! Coral Reef Restaurant is a great restaurant but there are several other dining locations that your daughter might really enjoy! 

    Tip #3...use the My Disney Experience app to search for dinner reservations! By using the app, you can search for any dinner reservation available in the entire Walt Disney World Resort on your daughter’s birthday! When you go to the app search for “Dining Reservations.” You’ll then be prompted to enter the size of your dining party. When the calendar appears, tap your preferred date. When the times of the day appear, tap “Dinner.” The app will then search for all available restaurants in the Walt Disney World Resort. For example, I just searched the app for dinner for a party of six on the date of your daughter’s birthday. I see reservations available at a few restaurants!

    William, you might also consider doing a search for “Lunch” as you might find a late enough lunchtime that can serve as dinner! Keep searching, William! You’ll be surprised what becomes available!
