    Our fabulous family of 5 are going to WDW this holiday season and want to dine at Be Our Guest restaurant but the website isn't coming up with any times for reservations during our entire 3 weeks there! Is it possible it's totally booked up?

    It's great to see you here today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Alison!

    A three-week vacation at Walt Disney World Resort sounds absolutely heavenly, and you're going to be visiting at my favorite time of the year, the holiday season. All of the Theme Parks and Resort Hotels will be beautifully decorated, and the sound of Christmas music will be in the air! Of course, the best part of celebrating the holidays with your family is the food, so let's chat about what to do when you're trying to secure a dining reservation to a popular restaurant that appears to be full.

    There's no need to worry just yet, Alison, but I'll be honest with you and say that it is likely that all of the reservation times available for Be Our Guest Restaurant during your vacation are currently booked. Dining reservations open up 180 days in advance and since it is one of the most popular dining locations at Walt Disney World Resort right now, the restaurant does tend to fill up almost immediately as it opens for booking. It may still be possible for you to eat inside the Beast's enchanted castle because 180 days is a lot of time for guests to change their minds. People are constantly adjusting and modifying their plans so reservations do pop up now and again for very popular restaurants. I recommend checking My Disney Experience frequently to see if anyone has canceled their booking, and be flexible about the time you eat. Be Our Guest Restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and each one of them is delicious so have an open mind about which meal you enjoy. Reservations even pop up on the day of, so keep refreshing because you never know what kind of magic might happen!

    I hope this answers your question, Alison, and please let us know if there's anything else we can do to help you plan your magical vacation.
