    Hi, I will travel from Dec 27 to Jan3, and I couldn't find availability for dining reservation in Cinderella's royal Table, Be My Guest, Chef Mickey? How can I do? I will travel with two girls (3 and 6) and they will love a character bf, lunch or dinner

    Greetings Jenny!

    Congratulations on your upcoming Walt DIsney World vacation! How exciting you will be visiting the "Most Magical Place on Earth" when all of the parks and resorts are beautifully decorated for the Holiday season! 

    I'm so sorry you have been unsuccessful in finding availability at the restaurants you were wanting to experience! Cinderella's Royal Table, Chef Mickey's, and Be Our Guest Restaurant are three of the most popular dining locations and often book up months in advance. I am happy to report that you can still enjoy a quick-service lunch at Be Our Guest Restaurant since this dining location only accepts Advanced Dining Reservations for dinner. I have dined at the enchanting Be Our Guest Restaurant twice now for lunch and thoroughly enjoyed the experience!  I would also recommend that you keep checking back online or by calling Disney Dining directly at (407) WDW-DINE to see if anything becomes available for Cinderella's Royal Table or Chef Mickey's. You never know when someone else may cancel their Advanced DIning Reservation. 

    I would also suggest checking out 'Ohana's Best Friends Breakfast (my personal favorite) at Disney's Polynesian Resort, which features Lilo, Stitch, Mickey and Pluto. Another great Character Dining Experience featuring the Disney Princesses is Princess Storybook DIning at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall in the Norway Pavilion at Epcot. I would honestly recommend calling Disney Dining directly in order to speak to a friendly cast member so that they can check all of the dining locations that feature Character DIning Experiences for your entire stay. Then, should you later find availability at your first choice you could simply modify your existing Advanced DIning Reservation, but you would have something secured just to be on the safe side. I hope this information helps! Best wishes for a magical trip, Jenny!

    Bon Appétit,
