    We are going to Disney in Sept but can't seem to make a reservation for ANYcharacter dining at all! We wanted to dine with Mickey, Minnie, Goofy etc...any advice on what to do? Can we just show up and hope to get in somewhere?

    Hi Candice!
    I know what that's like! Showing up is always an option, but there's a chance you won't get a table at the last minute. What has worked for me in the past is calling every morning, around 7AM Orlando time to see if there have been any cancellations. On a recent trip to WDW we decided to do a character dining experience at the last minute. So I began calling every morning and after a couple of days I was lucky enough to get a reservation for 9 guests! So start dialing (407) WDW-DINE because you never know when someone might cancel. I hope you get your reservations for character dining!
    Have a magical vacation!
