    Good Morning, When will the month of September open for dining reservations for the Carthay Circle Restaurant and the Alfresco Terrace dining?

    Hi Larry,

    Welcome to planDisney! Thanks for bringing us your great question about some of the fantastic dining locations at The Happiest Place on Earth! My mouth is watering just thinking about the fresh and unique flavors.

    Dining reservations become available to book beginning 60 days in advance, so they're currently open for September. The most recent Foodie Guide did mention that Alfresco Tasting Terrace will only be available for Legacy Passholders to enjoy through August 15th, so that's likely why you're not finding anything there. As for Carthay Circle Restaurant? With its jazzy tunes, iconic decor, and delicious cuisines, it's quite popular, so it's certainly possible that all of the spots are currently taken. Please don't give up, though! Guests' plans change all the time, so something could open up between now and September. Of course, if you're not able to find a reservation ahead of time, I'd also encourage you to check the walk-up list within the handy dandy Disneyland mobile app to see if there are any last-minute openings. While subject to current availability, I just checked tonight around 5:00 PM and there was availability! It's too bad I'm over 2,000 miles away in Virginia because that sounds incredible! I'm sending pixie dust that you'll be able to enjoy dinner at Carthay Circle Restaurant during your upcoming visit!

    Thanks so much for visiting us at planDisney, Larry, and please let us know if you have any other questions as you're thinking through the details of your visit. I hope you have a truly magical...and delicious...Disneyland Resort adventure this fall!
