    I was hopping to get an ADR for the Garden Grill on 11/25/17 or 11/26/17 there are no times available all day. My trip starts 11/18/17. Are they not open on theses days? Plenty of availability on 11/23/17. Thank you. Have a magical day!

    Hi Leanne!

    We sound like two peas in a pod! I also was trying to score an Advanced Dining Reservation for that date range at Garden Grill and was unable to find a table. This is Thanksgiving week and I believe that the reservations got booked up quickly due to the number of people who will be in the park that day.

    However, don't give up hope. I often find that I'm able to find dining reservations closer to the date of my vacation. Many guests will firm up their plans as the date nears and release previously booked reservations. 

    You can also try to book at odd times of the day, such as 2:00 for lunch. I often find I have better luck with this approach.

    If you will be at Epcot those days, I highly suggest Coral Reef. Their food is great, the atmosphere is awesome and they are typically not as difficult to book.
