    At my 180 day mark I was unable to get reservations for HDDR. There is no way it's full. Going in January 17. Any ideas?

    Hey, Laura!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. So you want to get your heels kickin' and toes tappin' during the rootin' tootin' Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue. What a hilariously fun experience this is! You are right; it is probably not full. Disney may have released a limited number of reservations at the time you tried to book and other Guests who were able to book before you were able to get the time you wanted.

    Here is my advice:

    1. Choose another day. When making plans at Walt Disney World Resort, we typically plan our days around the dining experience.
    2. About 6 weeks out from your desired dining time, people will begin canceling reservations. Most cancel between 8:30 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. This is prime time to pick up your desired reservation. Make sure to check daily.
    3. Stay flexible. Search for times 30-60 minutes beyond your desired time and show up early. If there is availability you will likely be seated early.
    4. Check availability weekly online through My Disney Experience or by calling 407-WDW-DINE (407-939-3463). 
    5. As a last resort, try as a walk-in. Cancellations happen at the last minute due to a variety of reasons and you'll be there to scoop up a table.

    Disney Dad Tip: Use the My Disney Experience mobile app to help you "Get Directions" to the Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue from anywhere inside Walt Disney World Resort.

    Laura, enjoy making and eating many Magical Memories!
