    We are heading to Disney in just about a week & I need help. My kids would LOVE character dining, but when I look online there's no availability. Any chance that there will be space when I get there or am I out of luck?

    Hi Iliana,

    There is still a small chance of making last minute reservations for a character dining experience.  I suggest you call (407) WDW-DINE daily to check for last minute cancellations.  Be flexible with both dates and times.  Ask the concierge at your Disney resort to assist you in your search for available reservations too.  Finally, stop by the hostess station at a few of the restaurants that offer character dining during your vacation to see if there have been any last minute cancellations.  Try some of the lesser known character dining experiences like Cape May Cafe and Garden Grill.

    Even though you can certainly have a full Disney experience without a character meal, I'll keep my fingers crossed that you'll be able to make a reservation for our upcoming trip.

    Best wishes for a truly magical vacation!
