    At our 180 days out, I was not able to get a reservation for BOG on 11/17 for my family of 5. We are now less than 60 days. I look constantly, and still nothing. What are our options? Can we try to walk-up and wait? Help! Desperate!

    Hey Julie!

    I completely understand what you are going through. I am also visiting Walt Disney World in November and have had lots of problems getting at the Advanced Dining Reservations my family wanted. Unfortunately, there is no magic to getting a reservation once they are full. I will say, once the offsite guests make their FastPass+ selections, I have found that a few reservations seem to open up. So I guess my advice right now is to 'just keep swimming'... I mean checking.

    If, after all the checking, you still aren't able to get a reservation, you should definitely try the standby line which starts to form 30-45 minutes prior to opening. On a positive note, when I was dining at Be Our Guest in June, the family in front of us did not have an Advanced Dining Reservation. However, the Cast Member was able to fit them in. So there is always hope!

    Good luck with the rest of your planning. I will send extra pixie dust your way in hope you get all the dining reservation you want. If you have any other questions about your Walt Disney World vacation please come back and see me.

    Wishing you a *MAGICAL* vacation and a pixie-dusted day!
