    Hi! I see dining reservations “open” on the calendar app and online for the blue bayou, but when I search for times, there is nothing available. This seems to be true for all of the open days listed on the calendar. Am i doing something wrong?

    Welcome to planDisney, Kaytie!

    Dining reservations at the Disneyland Resort have been a little difficult to come by lately, especially for Blue Bayou Restaurant. Usually, dining reservations can be made up to 60 days in advance, but most reservation times are being released closer to the 45-50-day mark. I'm not quite sure why this is, but my best advice is to keep checking as something might open up. If you aren't able to secure a reservation before your trip, you can always try to stop by Blue Bayou Restaurant and see if they have any availability for walk-ins that day. It's never a guarantee but sometimes they are able to accommodate people. 

    Speaking of walk-up lists, lots of restaurants have added the ability to join the walk-up list through the Disneyland app. These restaurants include Cafe Orleans, River Belle Terrace, Wine Country Trattoria, Storytellers Cafe, and more. On the Disneyland app, navigate to the map view and select "Dining" from the filter drop-down menu. Locate the restaurant at which you want to dine and if they have availability that day, you will see the "Join Walk-up List" button. 

    I hope your visit to the Disneyland Resort is full of good food and great memories!
