    We were hoping to get a quick trip in to Disney while visiting family in Florida. We are planning Oct 11-14, 2020 however, when trying to see what restaurants are available to book during our trip it seems that all reservations are taken. Is anything open?

    Hi Christine!

    Welcome to planDisney! We are so glad you've decided to ask us a question about dining options for your upcoming stay!   I see you are planning to arrive in October.  Autumn is a wonderful time to experience the magic and ambiance at Walt Disney World!  The Magic Kingdom is decorated in its fall best, Halloween inspired treats can be found at several places within the parks, and for the first time ever, guests of all ages can adorn their favorite costume for a visit to Magic Kingdom park. This makes for an exciting October trip!

    Christine, I did some checking on the Dining tab of the Walt Disney World website to see if there are dining reservations available for your upcoming stay.   There is availability for many restaurants, including some popular options such as Via Napoli Ristorante e Pizzeria in Epcot, Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant, in Disney's Hollywood Studios and one of my favorites, Raglan Road Irish Pub and Restaurant, in Disney Springs.  Most of the dining times were between the hours of 4:30 pm and 7:30 pm.  If this fits within your planned dining time, I suggest you try again to book online. If you are having difficulty booking online, you can call, chat or email support to assist you in resolving the issue.   Bear in mind that several Walt Disney World restaurants are temporarily unavailable as Disney continues its phased reopening.  Also, note that park hours for October are reduced, and availability for in park dining may be limited.  Be sure to check the park hours for your stay to ensure that you are aware of opening and closing times. 

    Hope this helps you plan your magical vacation and be sure to ask us again!
