    Hello, my family (husband & daughter, age 11) will be in Disneyland from Oct 9-12 and I would like to book lunch at Blue Bayou but there are no reservations available online, should I keep checking back or can I try to book it in person the day of?

    Hi there, Stephanie! Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Blue Bayou Restaurant is one of my favorite places to eat at the Disneyland Resort! I adore the outdoors-indoors ambiance and the food never ceases to amaze me. Because Blue Bayou Restaurant is so great, it is a very popular choice for those dining in Disneyland Park. If you can’t find your desired reservation time online, you might try calling Disney Dining at (714) 781-3463 to see if they can find you a table. You could also try to walk up to the restaurant to see if they have any same-day availability, but in my experience, they are usually completely booked in advance. 

    If you happen to be staying at one of the three Disneyland Resort Hotels, then you have access to preferred reservations. A certain number of dining reservations are set aside specifically for hotel Guests. When you call the number listed above, there is usually a prompt asking if you are a staying at a Disneyland Resort Hotel. Follow that prompt and you will be connected with a Cast Member who may be able to secure a reservation through this service. 

    Keep in mind that there are lots of other equally delicious restaurants at the Disneyland Resort that might have availability. Carthay Circle Restaurant in Disney California Adventure Park is absolutely marvelous. The décor is a throwback to old Hollywood and the cuisine is pure elegance. Napa Rose and Steakhouse 55 are also excellent choices for fine dining. 

    I hope your trip to the Disneyland Resort is full of fabulous food and fantastic fun!
