    It's our first trip to Disney. There are no reservations available for character dining during our visit for the girls. What suggestions do have for dining in lieu of the character dining? How would you find out about any cancellations at the resturants

    Hi Mihae!

    Thank you for sending in your question to the Walt Disney World Moms Panel. 

    I am sorry to read that you can't get any Disney Character Dining Reservations. Your best bet will be to try daily in case there are any cancellations. I think it is easiest to try online, but you can also call Disney Dining at (407) WDW-DINE. 

    For other restaurants, I suggest considering Tusker House, the Whispering Canyon Cafe, Boma, Cape May Cafe, 1900 Park Fare, Mama Melrose, Liberty Tree Tavern, Coral Reed, San Angel Inn, and the Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater. 

    I hope this helps. Please write back with more questions.
