    I have some fast passes booked and understand I can add more once they have been used. I have only been able to make 1 dinner/lunch reservation 6 of us nothing available what are the chances you will get in if you go to the restaurant and line up. Thanks

    Hi Kathryn! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Your trip is right around the corner and it sounds like you have done an excellent job with planning all of the details. You will be SO happy you put in the time and effort ahead of time when you made your FastPass+ selections. They will save you a ton of time in the theme parks!

    With a party of six, it can be difficult to find last-minute reservations, but it does happen occasionally! My first suggestion is to keep trying to find one prior to your visit. Checking throughout the day for availability, as well as expanding your search to include more time flexibility, can increase your chances for finding any reservations that pop up. Since most reservations have to be cancelled at least one day in advance, continue checking up to your day in the theme park, because you never know when a last-minute cancellation will happen!

    When you get to the theme park, I recommend heading to any of the restaurants you are hoping to dine at to ask if they have had any same day cancellations. On my visit to Magic Kingdom Park last month, my family was able to snag a last-minute reservation for The Diamond Horseshoe. It was great!

    If the reservation watch just doesn't work out, never fear! Each theme park has some truly delicious and unique Quick-Service locations that don't require a reservation. You just might discover a new favorite dining spot when you least expect it!

    I hope this helps, Kathryn! Please let us know if you have any other questions. Happy dining!
