    We are going to be in Disney from 6/18-6/26. Staying at Coronado Spring's Resort. We are a family of 4 and I have been trying to get a reservation for Mickey's Backyard BBQ for the last 6 months with no luck. Any tips on how we can get into this event?

    Hi Michael,

    Welcome to the Moms Panel!  With your trip just around the corner, you must be finalizing all those last minute details!  I'm sorry to hear that you have not been able to secure a reservation at Mickey's Backyard BBQ.  I would check back daily to see if anything has opened up, and be as flexible with your dates and times as possible.  If you still aren't having luck, once you have arrived at Walt Disney World check with your resort concierge, or guest relations at any theme park, as they can check the updated availability.  Often times guests may cancel at the last minute because their plans changed once they arrived.  Your resort phone will also have a direct speed dial to the dining reservation center, so try that as well.

    If you want to consider something else, I might suggest the Whispering Canyon Cafe or Chef Mickey's.  Both offer a fun family dining experience. 

    Hope this helps!
