    Want to dine at Ogi’s Cantina and/or Blue Bayo for upcoming birthday - are all reservations booked for bot locations for the next few months or something? It’s a party of eight and two birthdays, but we would like to get the reservation a weekday hopefully

    Hey there, Hi there, Ho there, Christina!

    Welcome to planDisney and thanks for stopping by. I just love celebrating any special occasion at the Disneyland Resort. I’ve spent the last 5 birthdays celebrating at the Walt Disney World Resort or the Disneyland Resort, minus the year the parks were closed, and I can’t think of any better way to spend my birthday! Plus, my husband’s birthday is the day before mine, so we both get to enjoy some time at one of our favorite places.

    When it comes to dining reservations, don’t give up! I recommend checking daily for a reservation. I also suggest using the Disneyland mobile app for a quick and easy search any chance you get. I was able to schedule a dining reservation just 4 days before my visit, so I strongly believe in not giving up!

    If these searches still don’t help secure a dining reservation, I recommend stopping by at both locations to see if there’s walk-up availability on the day of your visit. My fellow panelist, Tiffanie, was able to get a walkup table at Blue Bayou Restaurant the day of her visit.

    Christina, I hope all these tips and suggestions help. Have a magical visit and please pass along a very happy birthday from all of us at planDisney!
