    We have a Disney in a month and I have been trying to book a character dining with any of the princesses. It is completely full the two weeks I am there. Are there any walk-ins? Is the quick service at Be Our Guest also have characters?

    Hi Vivian, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    My son adores the Disney Princesses, and we always make a point on our vacations to stop by and say hello to his favorite friends and collect a kiss or two. Meeting the Princesses is always such an enchanting and special experience.

    I’m sorry to hear you’re not having luck securing a dining reservation with the Princesses – it can definitely be tough. My best advice is to keep checking, because you just never know when what you’re looking for will pop up. I have a trip coming up next month too, and there was one reservation I just could not get (yes, it even happens to Moms Panelists!), and I logged in to My Disney Experience just to check, and guess what?! The dining experience I wanted was there! My kiddos and I did a happy dance!

    While you will not see any characters at Be Our Guest Restaurant at any time other than dinner, there are some other options that can be easier to reserve. My family loved dinner at 1900 Park Fare, where we met Cinderella, Prince Charming, Lady Tremaine, and Cinderella’s wickedly funny stepsisters. Another great option is the Bon Voyage Adventure Breakfast at Trattoria al Forno, where we met Ariel, Prince Eric, Rapunzel, and Flynn Rider. 

    You are always welcome to walk up and ask if there is any availability when you’re at Walt Disney World, but please be prepared that there typically isn’t walk-in availability, so a better option is checking the app every day, or calling (407) WDW-DINE. 

    I’m wishing and hoping you get some pixie dust sprinkled on you, Vivian! Don’t forget you can meet many Princesses in the theme parks, so even if you don’t get the dining reservation, you’ll be able to meet your favorites and make some magical memories.

    Good luck, and have a magical vacation,
