    We would like to make dinner reservations for Cathay Circle DCA and Blue Bayou DL for last weekend of September. Several of the restaurants done show any reservations for dinner these days. IS this a seasonal thing?

    Hi, Anna! Thanks for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Blue Bayou Restaurant and Carthay Circle Restaurant are two of my favorite dining locations at the Disneyland Resort! We usually eat at one or the other (or both!) during almost every trip as they are available year-round. Dining reservations for table service restaurants can be made up to 60 days in advance online or by calling (714) 781-3463. It’s possible that when you were looking for reservations that the 60-day mark hadn’t quite arrived yet for your travel dates or that the Disneyland Resort schedule was lagging behind just a bit. I just did a search for both restaurants and found availability for dinner from the end of September through the first few days of October. So I suggest trying again today to see if you can find a time that works for you. 

    Keep in mind that you will be visiting the parks during Halloween Time. This means that Disneyland Park will close early on select nights for Mickey’s Halloween Party which is a separate ticket event. This will impact dinner reservation availability at Blue Bayou Restaurant on party nights. When you are searching, you might have better luck finding reservations if you select specific times instead of selecting “dinner” from the drop-down menu online. I usually try a few different times to see what the availability is throughout the evening. 

    I hope this helps! Have a fabulous time eating at these fantastic restaurants during your upcoming trip!
