    my family and i are going to WDW April 17 we really want to do the VIP parade/lunch at Tony's but all reservations are filled. would there be an opportunity that day/week for a spot to open?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Mona!

    Your Walt Disney World Resort vacation is coming up so soon! Are you sooo excited??

    I'm sorry to hear you were not able to secure a reservation for the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade Dining Package at Tony's Town Square Restaurant. I have a few suggestions. If you have a larger party, try breaking up into smaller groups. For example, if you have a party of eight, see if you can reserve for two parties of four. If you have been trying to reserve online, try calling the Dining Reservations line to see if a Cast Member there can offer more insight into availability.

    Guests' plans change all the time. I recommend you keep checking to see if a reservation opens up. Since a credit card guarantee is required to reserve this experience, you might find availability in the day or two leading up to your visit. Be sure to have downloaded the My Disney Experience mobile app so you can check for a last minute reservation. You might also try doing an internet search for "Disney reservation finder". There are websites that will alert you if a reservation you have been looking for becomes available.

    If you are still unsuccessful at securing a reservation, have no fear! My family and I usually find a viewing spot and grab some yummy snacks to nibble on while we wait for the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade, no reservation needed!

    Have a wonderful visit!
