    Hey Disney World Pros, I'm planning a trip in 3 months. My problem is that most of the choice restaurants are all booked up with reservations. Is there a way to get alerts if dining reservation comes open?

    Hi Marcus!

    Unfortunately the only way to find available dining reservations is to keep checking the website or the My Disney Experience mobile app.  I have been lucky snagging last minute reservations by being persistent.  I have the online dining website bookmarked on my phone.  I even got an 'Ohana dinner reservation the day of a few weeks ago.  Score!  My suggestion is to check every day and multiple times a day especially the week before your trip.  Since the cancellation policy is one day, you'll find that reservations pop up last minute when guests are finalizing their plans.  

    Have a magical day!
