    We have 1 day park hopper tickets on 12/19/21. I want to make lunch and dinner reservations if possible but almost every restaurant I check is booked. Is there a way to tell what restaurants are available by date versus checking each location?

    Hi Tara, 

    Welcome to planDisney and thank you for taking the time to reach out to us with your question about Advanced Dining Reservations.  Your visit to Walt Disney World Resort is coming up quickly, how exciting!  

    Advanced Dining Reservations are available for booking up to 60 days in advance and do tend to fill up quickly, especially during the holiday season.  On the Walt Disney World Resort website, hover over the "Things to Do" tab and scroll down to "Make Reservations" under "Dining".  From there you should be able to enter the date you wish to search as well as a time frame.  Since you are planning on visiting shortly, I suggest looking at reservations that are off-peak time; an early dinner or late breakfast.  I have had some luck finding an Advanced Dining Reservation the week prior to my visit, as people finalize plans and cancel reservations, keep checking, there is still hope. 

    If by chance you are unable to find an Advanced Dining Reservation prior to your visit, once you enter into the Theme Park head on over to the Restaurant you would like to dine at and ask the Cast Member if there are any Same-Day Walk-Up reservations available.  Most dining locations will have a few available for guests depending on capacity.  Another option would be to use the Mobile Food and Beverage Ordering feature on the My Disney Experience Mobile App.   We use this service all the time, it makes ordering and picking up our meals quick and efficient! 

    I hope you are able to find some Advanced Dining Reservations for your Disney Day, Tara.  If you have any other questions please come back and visit us at planDisney again, we are always happy to help.
