    Does Disney have anything like a waiting list for a dining reservation like when someone cancels?

    Hi Melissa,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  Unfortunately, there is not a waiting list for Advanced Dining Reservations. If you are encountering difficulty in trying to secure an Advanced Dining Reservation for your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation, I would recommend that you keep checking back periodically as you never know when someone else may cancel. I have previously been unsuccessful in securing an Advanced Dining Reservation to a favorite restaurant, but after several attempts of checking online, I was able to find availability. With that being said, I've had the most success in finding availability in the days leading up to our trip as Guests often cancel in order to avoid being charged. 

    I hope this information is helpful to you.  If you have any additional questions, please don't hesitate to reach out again. Best wishes for a magical trip, Melissa!

    Happy Planning,
