    Hello, we are so excited to be headed to Disneyland this month. I tried several times to reserve a spot at Blue Bayou restaurant but have been unable to do so. Is it possible to look for a cancellation when we are at the park? Thanks!

    Hiya Jacelyn,

    Welcome to planDisney! Thank you for your question about my most favorite topic, dining. No dining location is more iconic than Blue Bayou Restaurant. I remember on my very first visit to Disneyland, riding Pirates of the Caribbean and seeing the restaurant from the attraction and knowing I had to eat there.

    I'm sorry you haven't been able to secure a reservation yet, Jacelyn. It is definitely one of the harder reservations to do so, but I wouldn't worry just yet. First, keep checking back (especially early next week). Guests' plans can still change, and I tend to see reservations open up the closer you get to the date you want to visit. Speaking of which, did you know you can grab a reservation as late as two hours before? Guests can cancel their reservations up to two hours before their scheduled time without penalty. If there is a place I really want to dine, and my plans are flexible, I start checking the Disneyland Mobile App when I wake up that day and until I either grab one or the day ends. Another option is to join the walk-up list through the app (if available) or head to the host stand at Blue Bayou and see any open spots. I have had success with all of the options, so hang in there!

    I hope this was helpful, Jacelyn, and even more importantly, one of these tips leads to you getting a Blue Bayou Restaurant reservation. Please come back and see us if you need anything else.

    Happy Planning,

    Ashley F.
