    hi..I'd like to make reservations for 4 at CRT but nothing is available during our 8-day stay. Our older daughter loved it a few years ago & now want to give our younger daughter the same experience. Is there ever the possibility something will open u

    Hi Keith, 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for your question.

    Unfortunately, I don’t have any foolproof way to ensure that you’ll be able to dine at Cinderella’s Royal Table during your upcoming visit to Walt Disney World Resort. As guests cancel their reservations and as the restaurant reviews its occupancy levels for any given day, sometimes a table will become available when you least expect it. If you’re planning to dine in November of this year, it seems as though several Guests are having difficulty finding availabilities in some of the more popular dining experiences. I suspect (but this is only personal speculation) that some restaurants haven’t loaded their full availabilities into the reservation system yet. Bottom line: keep checking! You might get a surprise when you do! 

    Another tip would be to check back at least 24 hours before your selected dining date. Due to the cancellation policy for dining reservations at Walt Disney World Resort, tables often open up for more popular restaurants the day before the reservation as guests cancel their bookings. 

    Finally, some great alternatives for your family would be Cinderella's Happily Ever After Dinner at 1900 Park Fare at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa (one of my favourite character dining experiences on property) or Princes Storybook Dining at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall in Epcot.

    Have a Magical Day,
