    First time WDW mom here, I have vacation booked for 9/26-10/3. I had no IDEA the urgency to book meals so far in advance! ALL good ones are booked!! Chef Mickeys,CRT,Akershus, etc. What are my CHANCES of someone cancelling so I can get a reservation?

    Hi, Sarah!  You've chosen some of the most popular restaurants on Walt Disney World property, and they can book almost immediately after the 90 day window opens.  Combined with the fact that your vacation falls during a free dining offer, I know the restaurants probably filled up quickly.

    My best advice is to keep calling.  They do get cancellations, and you might be fortunate enough to luck into one if you call often.  Also, be flexible.  If you want Chef Mickey's on Tuesday and Tuesday is not available, have them check other days or times for you.

    I'll keep my fingers crossed that something opens up for you, but there are some other wonderful restaurants you can try booking in the mean time.  My family loves 'Ohana, Whispering Canyon Cafe, Crystal Palace, 50's Prime Time Cafe, and the Garden Grill at EPCOT.

    Good luck!
