    I have a December trip planned to Disneyland and ever since my 60 days hit, I've been trying to make dining reservations and nothing is available at all. I've been trying every day for weeks. How is this possible?

    Hey There, Hi There, Ho There, Christopher!

    Welcome to planDisney! We are DELIGHTED you stopped by, and we are honored to help you plan your upcoming trip to the Disneyland Resort! You are most definitely coming at the MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR!!! Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your PLANNING TEAM!

    I am so sorry you are having issues finding an open Disneyland Dining Reservation in December. One major issue is that Mickey Mouse and his pals are still limiting the number of people in each restaurant in order to make sure every Guest is as safe as possible. Since there are still many Guests trying to book a Disneyland Dining Reservation during a very busy time of the year, you can see how this can cause a big issue.

    All that to say, I want to encourage you to NOT GIVE UP in booking a dining reservation. My recommendation is to start checking online reservations with more frequency before your scheduled trip. As you know, schedules can change, and Guests will cancel their reservations in order to avoid paying the no-show penalty. I also wanted you to know that many restaurants will take same-day reservations, if they are available. If you are not able to snag a reservation before you arrive, my recommendation would be to go directly to your preferred restaurant and check reservation availability as soon as the restaurant opens. 

    I am wishing upon a star you are able to make your Disneyland Dining Reservation! If you need anything else, please let us know! We are just a question away!

    See Ya Real Soon!
