    Who can help me book character dining? I’m not seeing anything for the parks I’ll be visiting in October.

    Hi Erin!

    October is a fantastic time to visit Walt Disney World Resort. You’re going to love exploring the "Most Magical Place on Earth" during the Halloween season. I don’t know if you’ve gotten tickets to Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, but it’s a great way to celebrate the season in Magic Kingdom!

    I’m so sorry you’re having trouble with dining reservations! Character Dining is extremely popular and reservations are limited, especially since there are still a few character dining locations where Characters have not yet been able to return to meet with Guests. Unfortunately, the online dining reservation availability is the complete list of dining reservations currently available. So if you’re unable to find dining reservations using the online dining reservation tool, then it means that there aren’t currently any more reservations for the dates and locations you are searching for. 

    I’m happy to tell you that there’s still hope that you maybe be able to enjoy some of the Character Dining on your "must-do" list. In my experience, reservations often become available as my trip approaches. In fact, I’ve found that reservations often open up during our trip. So I recommend that you keep checking reservations, including while you’re enjoying your vacation, so you can grab one if it becomes available. Be sure to download the My Disney Experience mobile app because it's the easiest way to check reservations during your vacation!

    Finally, if you can't grab a reservation, you can use the Mobile Dine Walk-Up Availability tool in the My Disney Experience mobile app to check to see if there’s any availability for your favorite restaurants during your vacation. It's a great way to enjoy some incredible meals at table service restaurants throughout Walt Disney World Resort while minimizing the time that you have to wait at each restaurant’s host stand!

    Erin, be sure to follow the Disney Parks Blog as you continue planning for the latest announcements and let us know if we can help you again as you continue planning! T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
